Cache Creek

Nestled along the Bonaparte River and renowned for its hospitality, Cache Creek is a popular stopover point for travellers.  Take a break for a home-baked bite to eat and a cozy bed for the night, or stay and enjoy the community’s parks, golf course and other tourist attractions.


While the town blossomed as a supply point of the 1860s Gold Rush, there are two stories on the origin of the town's name. Some claim it derived from the fur trade of the 1800s when supplies were stored or "cached" in the valley junction. Others say it came from a stagecoach robbery that occurred during the gold rush.  The police were chasing two bandits; one was killed and the other, badly injured, buried the loot along the creek bed.  The robber succumbed to his injuries before he could return, and the treasure remains yet to be found...

Things To Do

Splash out at the gift shops and indulge in fresh fudge, or purchase gifts of B.C. jade, pottery and art before exploring some of Cache Creek’s top attractions.

Bonaparte Bend Winery

Located on the Bonaparte Ranch (2520 Highway 97N), the Bonaparte Bend Winery specializes in superb fruit wines made from a vast range of locally grown fruit.  Wines include blueberry, cranberry, apple and Saskatoon berry, depending on the season and how long the stocks last!  The on-site restaurant serves delicious food.  Open April through September.

Cache Creek Visitor Information Centre

Adopting the town’s ‘50s and ‘60s theme, the Info Centre is a town landmark and a useful resource for local and regional tourist information.  Internet access is available here.  Open mid-May to mid-September.


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”.
