Invest in Del Oro

British Columbia, Canada



The community of Del Oro is located 20 kilometres east of the TNRD's major city centre, Kamloops. Del Oro consists of a few different areas with various housing options from a popular mobile home park to large acreages and ranches.

The Del Oro area does not have any shopping or schools, but these amenities are directly accessible via road traffic in the City of Kamloops, where there are a number of educational and recreational opportunities.

Del Oro is a fairly rural setting, thus there are a lot of rural type activities to participate in. Snowshoeing, fishing, boating (on the South Thompson or local lakes), hiking, motorized sports and of course golf at Rivershore Golf Links. Del Oro is located along the shores of the South Thompson allowing locals to launch their boats near the Lafarge Bridge and travel east to Shuswap Lake.

Given the rural setting, agriculture continues to play a significant role in the local economy.
