100 Mile House, BC

Located in the heart of the South Cariboo, 100 Mile House, BC, is the site of one of the earliest roadhouses on the Cariboo Wagon Road that serviced British Columbia's Cariboo Gold Rush. The community of 100 Mile House received it's name because of it's distance from the original Mile "0" in Lillooet.

Many years later, 100 Mile House remains a welcome stop for travellers on BC's Cariboo Highway 97 offering a variety of lodging and tourist services. Try a visit to Centennial Park, one of the prettiest spots on earth! A great place for a picnic by Bridge Creek.

Nestled in a valley overlooking Bridge Creek, 100 Mile House has become a year round recreational playground,including some of the world's finest cross country ski trails.

Summertime brings camping and trout fishing enthusiasts to the hundreds of lakes in the surrounding area. Highway 24, between 93 Mile and Little Fort is known as "The Fishing Highway" and provides access to some of the world's best rainbow trout fishing lakes, plus a large number of BC's best fishing resorts, guest ranches and wilderness lodges.
