The bustling Village of Cache Creek is an historic junction community and incorporated village located 354 km northeast of Vancouver at the junction of the Trans Canada Highway and Highway 97, and approximately 85 km northwest of the TNRD's largest city centre, Kamloops.

Its name is derived, apparently, from a cache or buried and hidden supply and trade goods depot used by the fur traders of either the Hudson's Bay Company or its rival the North West Company. During the gold rush of the mid 1800's, Cache Creek served as a halfway point for many hopeful prospectors en route to the Cariboo Gold Fields. Today, travelers can follow the Historic Gold Rush Trail and Cache Creek still remains an excellent halfway stop.

Like the areas surrounding it, Cache Creek offers a variety of terrain. The Bonaparte River runs through Cache Creek, and above the deep valley of the river lies rolling grasslands which give way to surrounding hills covered in sagebrush and cactus. Above the rolling desert hills lie beautiful mountainous terrain.

Cache Creek offers many points of interest for the weary traveler, and sporting a population of approximately 1,045 residents also offers many community and recreational activities.

Graffiti Days - Escape back to the 50's and 60's as Cache Creek comes alive in June at the famed Graffiti Days nostalgia weekend. This annual event started in 1987 and attracts competitors and spectators from across the Pacific West Coast.

The Mother's Day Annual Campbell Hill Fly-In is held each May at the Cache Creek Airport. This annual event attracts many aircrafts and spectators from around the region for the pancake breakfast.

Those with a sense of adventure will find the Gold Country GeoTourism Program a great way to explore the local area. Immerse yourself in tales of Gold Rush robberies and mysterious mine shafts as you locate Cache Creek’s hidden “caches”.

Arrowstone Provincial Park is a large wilderness park that keeps the valley undisturbed and is home to Douglas Fir and is ideal for wildlife viewing, photography, camping and hunting.

On a hot summer’s day, visit the Cache Creek 11-acre recreational park to go cycling, take a dip in the outdoor pool, have fun at the baseball diamonds, basketball court and horseshoe pits, or simply relax in the gazebo and have a picnic. Kids will have a blast at the playground.

Cache Creek is a friendly, safe and affordable place to live and raise a family. The semi-arid desert climate and long summer season is perfect for hiking, mountain biking, ATV-ing, fishing, swimming, golfing and camping.


Local Investment Opportunities

Local Infrastructure Projects

  • Water Treatment Plant: The Cache Creek water system has recently been upgraded with the construction of a Green Sand Filtration Plant to reduce levels of iron and manganese present in the ground water source. The filtration process provides chlorination for the water system along with ongoing monitoring for turbidity and pH.
  • Park/Playground Improvement Project: This project involves improvements to the Village of Cache Creek’s main recreational park to address flooding issues, bring playground equipment up to code, and to improve the accessibility and functionality of an area of the park.
  • Downtown Revitalization: This is an ongoing project that includes beautifying the landscape throughout the downtown including installation of pavers and planters, tree planting and improved accessibility. This project will create jobs, encourage economic growth and development by creating a more vibrant downtown, and assist in long term sustainability.
