Wineries & Vineyards
What travellers are saying
- One would not expect to come across such a wonderful winery with vineyards overlooking the Fraser River while driving though these desert canyons. But what a treat! Tastings were a very pleasant experience and the wines are really very good. Pleasant staff, excellent patio areas for charcuterie or bring your own picnic. Beautiful grounds incorporating the natural sage landscape. A must stop if passing through this area.Written August 1, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- As we were on a quick stop over for a bite to eat we did not spend too long in here.
The staff were helpful and knowledgeable and the exhibits were olde worlde as you would expect. This is not a massive exhibit so you could easily look round in 30 mins.
Outside there was a nice totem pole, good photo opportunity and some massive chunks of Jade. Nice.
There are some public restrooms just across the grass very nearby.Written July 29, 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Beautiful Lake nestled in the mountain. Well worth the drive whether you are coming from Pemberton or Lilooet. Great place to snap a few photos.Written August 7, 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Worth a stop at overlook above the bridge. Neat old bridge and view of the valley. Also good viewpoint for railroad bridge.Written August 20, 2023
- Enjoyed learning about the history of the house. It is well preserved, but in its original condition, and still has original medical equipment used by its former owner.Written September 15, 2022
- Great views and good beer and wine - and GREAT bathrooms. They had both inside and outside seating - nothing plush or cushy, but just fine, and the service was very friendly. We started inside but there was a group of young parents with very young children, and it was just a little too "screamy" for us, so we went outside, and it was just fine.Written June 30, 2023
- SCM Provincial Park is a beautiful backcountry destination with fairly easy access, well built trails and tons to see. In our three night stay starting from Jewel Bridge we were able to see a very small portion of the park. In total we saw a total of 20 people so it's not that busy and there was quite a bit of wild life. We saw moose, deer and a bear. Wild flowers are beautiful as are the lakes and mountain views. We will definitely return for a longer trip. I would recommend staying at least 5-7 nights.Written July 25, 2016
- Quite a stark bridge across the Fraser river, it was named in a local competition in 1981, to memorialise the 23 camels that were brought over to use as pack animals, an experiment that ended badly for the camelsWritten May 21, 2023
- First come first serve, 12 tubs with hot cold and warm temperatures. I could stay here forever! Can't wait to go back soonWritten March 7, 2020
- Excellent stop in center of town. Haley lovely young lady who went out of her way to share her local best spots to visit. They have local made products for sale and I got some great honey. Nice older building In town and you can get all the maps and brochures of all areas close by. With a smile.Written August 5, 2023
- The Memorial is relatively new as it was officially opened in May 2018.
With the involvement of Canada in World War II, Japanese Canadians were moved to various internment camps in the interior of British Columbia.
As far as memorials go, this is a very simple memorial that honours all the Japanese Canadians that were removed from their homes on the Pacific Coast and moved to four internment camps in the area - East Lillooet, Bridge River, Minto, and McGillivray Falls.
There is some background information and the history of the internment camps on the signage.
I would rate the actual physical site as “okay” - a simple landscaped clearing. However, in terms of historical significance, a very important memorial for the Japanese Canadians and also a reminder of Canada’s past dark history.
I would rate the attraction as “good” - 3.75 out of 5 rating.
• The Memorial is fairly easy to find. Take Duffy Lake Road and once over the Bridge of the 23 Camels, drive about a minute and you will see the Fort Berens Estate Winery on your left and the “T” intersection in front of you. Make a right turn at Highway 12, drive less than a minute and the Memorial will be on your right.
• Unsupervised site and there is admission fee
• Small parking lot
• Check the National Association of Japanese Canadians website for additional information
• Prior to visiting this memorial, we visited Miyazaki House in Lillooet. Dr Miyazaki served the Village of Lillooet and the surrounding area for many years and was a very important person in Lillooet’s history. After our visit to the Miyazaki heritage house, we went for lunch at May Wong Chinese restaurant also in Lillooet. See my reviews for both sites.Written August 24, 2018
- OMG This thing is so cute. We spotted it on our way out of town.
I love this town it has some real working but old cowboy western style buildings. Without all the modern trappings of life now, you could have been transported back in time.
The shuttle was sitting slightly down the rails from the station.
Its another world.Written July 29, 2020
- At the far side of the bridge of the twenty three camels this sculpture stands out. A bunch of flowers set in a water turbine wheel, very thought provokingWritten May 21, 2023
- This golf course is truly one of a kind in North America. It is not very long but the sheep,lamas and occasional bear make up for it. There is one par 5 and two par 3s which make up amen corner (if you make it thru with a good score you can generally score fairly well) and the rest are open par 4s. The rates are low and on some days you would think it is your own private course. But eat before you go because they only sell light snacks at the course. They have multiple tournaments some fun and some serious but all enjoyable.
See you thereWritten January 9, 2015
