We stayed here for one night on our way through the area. They have some hookup sites that were full so we stayed in the open field and dry camped. It is in a pleasant setting between hills so we enjoyed sitting and watching an evening thunderstorm roll through. I thought $30 was a bit high for parking in a field but that would be my only criticism. The staff at checkin were very friendly and helpful.

The Ranch itself was interesting, but very quiet since it was the end of the season. There was one volunteer in period costume in the Roadhouse who was very informative, but all of the other buildings were just reading information on the plaques.

Half day well spent. Interpreters knew a lot and the Indigenous site was great, I hope to see that area expand. FYI their restaurant is closed on Thursdays.

The ranche is nice to visit, you can easily spend 2 or more hours there. Interaction with staff was very limited whilst we were there.
The service at the restaurant did not feel genuine at all. Food was so so
Lady at Office / shop was very kind.
We stayed the night. Place is ok but basic. No wifi

Popped in en route between Whistler and Sun Peaks. Interesting and quirky attraction - historic farm buildings, gold panning (no extra charge), period farm house, First Nations demonstrations, farm animals, stagecoaches and more. Nice little shop attached and popular cafe. Very friendly staff.

Campsite overlooked the horse pasture which was beautiful. The ranch itself was interesting but not something you need all day for. Went on a stagecoach ride and briefly panned for gold. It was cute! Restaurant was yummy and reasonably priced.

Loved this place. We planned to stop for an hour and stayed 3. We had a stagecoach ride, a wander around but the best parts were the presentations/discussions with the characters. We learned so much about the gold rush and the wagon trail. Even better, we learned about the Shuswap people - their traditions and way of life. So great.

We had a fantastic time at this ranch! We actually booked to stay in the "covered wagon" on this property, which was a wonderful experience. I would recommend it! The restaurant here is lovely as well! We had breakfast there and everything was good it was just slightly overpriced. Lastly, the village was perfect. They had lovely interactive buildings, and their interpreters were friendly and knowledgeable.

The ranch itself is very well maintained and preserved. The buildings, especially the roadhouse, are full of authentic details and information. The interpreter at the roadhouse has loads of interesting stories to share! It's easy and pleasant to stroll around the ranch to take a look at everything. We had booked a two-night stay in one of the family cabins, and were aware that the restaurant closes at 5. We made sure we arrived by 4 on Sunday so we could order our supper. However, upon arrival, we were told the restaurant was closing early (4:00) and that we couldn't get any food there. It would have been nice if there were at least sandwiches or a cold plate of some sort available for purchase. Instead, we had to go back to Cache Creek to find supper, about a half hour round trip. We also found out the restaurant is currently closed on Mondays, meaning our next day's meals had to be taken in town as well. I sent the management an email to let them know they should update their website, but I see they still haven't done it, so anybody arriving Monday for the evening would have been disappointed and inconvenienced. It also seems the ranch is short-staffed as the stagecoach rides they advertise were not available and some of the buildings (i.e. the blacksmith's shop) had no interpreters present. The family cabin was clean and adequate, but guests should be aware there is no wifi at the cabins and no blow dryer in the room. Wifi only seems to be available at the restaurant/office.

This was super. The food was very good as was the cups of joe, served outside on the patio in amazing weather, right beside the building were you enter. There is a stagecoach ride, what an experience. Fantastic preservation of the old buildings. Very cordial staff, lots of free parking.
