During the gold rush boom, Hat Creek Ranch offered rooms, food and stables to miners and settlers heading north. Today you can tour the restored roadhouse, General Store, blacksmith’s shop, wash house, draft-horse stables as well as view a fully restored B.C. Express stagecoach. The ranch also exhibits one of the most extensive collections of pioneer farming machinery in western Canada, from a mechanical hair picker to farm field equipment. The area honours the legacy of the indigenous Shuswap Nation and their contributions to the ranching industry. Visit the nearby Shuswap Nation village display site to get a rare look at a circular pit house known as a “kekuli.” Services: guided tours, demonstrations, stagecoach rides, accommodations, RV sites and camping, food services, gift shop, picnic area, washrooms Historic Hat Creek Ranch
