Cache Creek, BC

There have been a number of popular stories of how this town got its unique name. Some have told tales of gold miners caching or hiding provisions there, others have recounted mysteries of murder and hidden gold but the most recent theory is that this was a collection site for furs travelling east and the fur traders cached or stored them here.


True to its name the town of Cache Creek is steeped in Cariboo History and is located on the old Cariboo Wagon Road. This popular spot was a stopping place for miners gathering supplies before heading farther north to the gold fields. Just north of town is the Hat Creek Ranch , open to the public May to October, which housed weary travellers and their animals.

For those more interested in modern day technology, there is a race car track south of town which hosts a variety of races for competitors from as far away as the States and eastern Canada.

With many facilities and points of interest, Cache Creek is now a popular stopping place for the modern traveller.
