Search Rock Creek British Columbia

Located 36 km (22 mi) east of Osoyoos on Crowsnest Highway 3, the town of Rock Creek was founded when two soldiers traveling through the area discovered gold and launched one of the most important gold rushes in the history of the province. After the gold boom died out, agriculture, ranching and lumber became the mainstays of the economy. For the visitor, the highlands are ideal for hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, bird watching and hunting. Kettle River Park offers a place to fly fish or spend a day or two of guided paddling.
