Due to continuing pandemic-related concerns and health advisories in the Northern BC Health Authority region, and out of consideration for our very small community, we have had to make the difficult decision to suspend our activities for this winter season including the Tube Run and the Barkerville Café.



You can still visit Barkerville for a winter stroll through our walk-in gate, as well as access for snowmobiles.

Our cottages and Kelly Guest House are available for booking for your snowshoeing or cross-country skiing adventure.

We have many items available through our online shop.


This is Barkerville

Billy Barker’s legendary gold strike on Williams Creek triggered a multi-billion dollar industrial revolution that literally built a province. Today, the extraordinary historic town of Barkerville stands as a living testament to BC’s golden beginnings. With its unique streetscape of more than 125 heritage buildings, period displays, satellite museums, restaurants and shops there is still so much to explore.
