Hikes, Food, Attractions and Relaxation
Take a leisurely hike on our trail system bordering the pristine Monashee and Heckman Creeks. (There will be some trail and bridge closures this year due to extensive flood damage). Walk through pristine forests of cedar, larch, cottonwood, hemlock and pine trees. Try to catch a glimpse of the local wildlife while exploring the old Gold mining remains, or just sit and relax in the peaceful settings of the resort. Visit our gift shop to grab a souvenir. Look at some history in the Cherryville Historical Society Museum (contingent on them having a volunteer on staff).
There are also many incredible outdoor activities only a short drive away. Visit Keefer, Echo, Sugar or Mabel Lakes. All offer perfect conditions for boating, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, swimming, and fishing.
This area has also been dubbed by some, the hiking capital of Canada. Hike the Twin Creek, Camels Hump, Mount Beaven, Monashee Lake, Pinnacle Lake, Vista Pass, Spectrum Lake trails or go for the big time and do the Mark Berger traverse.
For a more leisurely pace visit a local farm to try some cheese and fresh produce, check out the local wares made by Cherryville artisans, or grab a game of golf. Before driving off to your next destination fill your tank and stock up on other essentials at locally owned convenience stores: Frank’s General Store and the Cherryville Emporium.
A Unique BC Camping Experience
Founded on a Chinese heritage mining operation, the grounds are steeped with history dating back to 1840. Chinese immigrants, who left the California gold rush, came to this historic site and mined gold for the emperor of China. Later in 1863, there was a small community consisting of two houses and one cabin on a claim belonging to Pion and Louis. By 1895, the location had grown into a small mining camp located deep within the canyon walls of Cherry Creek.
Today the Gold Panner Campground still holds many treasures, not all of them gold.
