    My great grandfather was very active in this community including building many homes, roads, bridges and getting an Alderman. My grandmother taught at the school in the '30s as well. The museum was so interesting and the two staff were incredibly with the stories about the area and it's people. They knew so much about this adorable town and it's historical info. Highly recommend!!!!

    Super cool experience trekking underground into the unknown. Bring proper footwear and a hoodie for a unique experience.

    Went to the Provincial Park on the south end of the lake and had a very nice and peaceful afternoon on the beach. There are plenty of Tables and one can bring the food with them and enjoy the beach. It was a perfect day sunny no wind and actually not to many people. Water was still ok and not to cold.

    A beautiful centre where we were warmly welcomed at the door! A nice little gift shop (although very pricey), cafe with great looking food, good bathrooms, and tons of brochures and travel info. Make sure to take some fun photos on their 3D train trestle, etc. The young woman at the guest services was super nice and helpful. A must stop spot.

    Beautiful, clean and well cared for Provincial Campground in southern B.C

    My wife and I go here every year in the fall - staff is exceptional and the campground is very quiet this time of year. We love the Park
    The Parks Branch should've a sewage drop for the Park even though all the washrooms throughout the Park are clean etc - a sewage dump site should be mandatory - no one leaves their unit at three in the morning and it would be nice to be a able to empty the tanks before heading east over the Paulson Pass. Yes there is a sewage dump in Christina Lake -which is just gross and bad.

    This gallery always has thought-provoking and outstanding installations. There are four galleries to visit and Canadian and Indigenous artists are often showcased here.
    I always enjoy the atmosphere and the friendly staff. Plus, I can't help but check out the gift shop. There are beautiful collections of pottery and ceramics, jewelry and books, toys and ornaments.
    For residents, there is also an art rental program here that enables you to take home works by local artists for a very reasonable price.

    The only tragedy is that this is only listed as the #8 best thing to do in Grand Forks. Give your head a shake Trip Advisor.

    While travelling east on Highway 3 to Nelson, stopped at Christina Lake to stretch our legs and have a picnic lunch. Found Christina Lake Park with plenty of parking. The beach wasn’t crowded and there were picnic tables to sit at. A park warden was present picking up litter and checking on things. Nice sandy beach, crisp clear water and plenty of space for everyone to enjoy. No flush toilets, just you standard outhouse style.

    First off I have to say it wasn't as fun as it could have been just because it was SO hot the day we went, but that is definitely one of the risks you take when doing something outside lol! The hike in was fine, until we got to the last bit when you go UP! I'm not in great shape and I made it, but it was a lot narrower and a lot further to fall than I thought it would be, single file for the most part up the hill and not a lot to hold on to while you go! We all had a good time searching for rocks to take home, and ended up taking quite a few! Not sure what we are going to do with some of the bigger ones, but some of the smaller ones are being made into jewellry.

    I wish there was more info about the ghost town, and maybe even a way to visit where it was, that would round out the experience very well!

    Ross and Janice are awesome. Ross was so helpful answering questions and showing us everything around the property. Amazing hospitality. This the second best place in Grand Forks after Alphine Taxidermy. Extensive collection of chainsaws and saws going back to the days when they were first invented. There is an awesome mural of the person who constructed the barn. My kids loved the dog. There is a beautiful creek too.

    What a find! After seeking out a venue for our non-profit's staff appreciation event, I met Crystal, owner of Lov'ander Acres Lavender Farm.

    Her beautiful, rural property just three minutes off the hwy, in sunny Grand Forks BC, was exactly what we needed. The peaceful, friendly vibe; following along the lavender labyrinth in quiet reflection; enjoying a delicious privately catered meal (which we arranged and brought in separately) in the shaded, old barn; visiting together over a refreshing cup of Crystal's homemade lavender lemonade and homemade lavender ice cream; and browsing through her rustic shop of lavender-infused products and treats.

    We arranged ahead with Crystal, and she prepared a beautiful gift bag for each of our staff including her handmade lavender soap, and a bottle of her lavender hand and body cream.

    I highly recommend a visit on your own, when hosting fam and friends, or to book your next private function.

    Thank you to Crystal and her husband, Steve for being such welcoming and accommodating hosts. Special thanks also to Marie, chef and owner of Le Bazar for her delicious, hearty, and healthy Mediterranean meal made with fresh, local, organic ingredients. You can find her Tue abd Fri at the Grand Forks Farmer's Market, and at her food truck on Central and 3rd in downtown Grand Forks.

    Took my daughter here to broaden her mind. They had a visual scavenger hunt to help pique her interest. Bring cash for the donation you will want to make, since there is no entry fee. The local history room is fascinating, and the art rental room has lovely art, clearly inspired by nearby nature.

    Living in Christina Lake we often walk up Santa Rosa and take the TCT trail to the kettle river bridge then backtrack. The views along the trail are beautiful as you walk above the river.
