70 Mile House


No doubt when 70 Mile House was established in 1862 as a hostel for Cariboo Waggon Road work crews, residents had no idea the area would evolve into a thriving guest- ranch and outdoor-recreation hub; with a diverse network of hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, Nordic and snowmobile trails, plus canoeing, kayaking, birding, wildlife viewing, ice fishing and angling.

Picturesque 70 Mile House is a key center for accessing the Green Lake Recreation Area, one of the Cariboo’s most popular destinations for water sports, along with nearby Watch Lake, a habitat for thriving waterfowl and raptor populations. As well, nearby Big Bar Lake Provincial Park boasts spectacular lake views, great fishing, RV sites, plus excellent boating and swimming.
