    Travelling with a new dog, not yet accustomed to being left in a $15 kennel rental out of sight from her owner necessitated me to stay with her by my vehicle on a hot day for 2 hours while 2 other family members went into the historic site. We would have appreciated a heads up at any of the check points along the turn-off from the highway about no pets including the Tourist Info building where we 3 bought our entry tickets.Requesting a ticket refund without the method of payment paper was another roadblock as we rummaged in the car in search of...Read More

    Recently drove from Kelowna to Barkerville. We stayed 2 nights at the st. George's hotel on site. Highly recommend staying at least two days.. Great place to bring your family and learn about how BC handled its first Gold rush.
    The actors were great. Lots to do and see in the townsite. For food there are several spots on sight. Lunch and dinner in either china town or jakes. Both are great. The bakery offers fresh pastries every day. Yum yum....
    Be prepared for cooler evenings. The hikes around the area are awesome. While there don't forget to...Read More

An added disappointment was the absence of a dedicated bakery as there once was and from which I bought a yummy bannock bread.
My family thought the visit warranted a 4 1/2-actors in character-well done.

Be prepared for cooler evenings. The hikes around the area are awesome. While there don't forget to also walk to Richfield to see the court house and meet the hanging judge... Lots of fun.. If your lucky on the way back to Barkerville you might be able to pick up a nugget that has washed onto the road. Good luck hunting for treasures and gold stories.. Everyone one must come and see this place at least once
