The Big Creek Lodge is a working Guest Ranch, established in 1985, in the heart of the Chilcotin Country, a remote region east of the Coast Mountains in the Cariboo Regional District, in British Columbia, Canada. In 2017, the former owners retired and the Big Creek Lodge as well as the Ranch were sold. Now under new management, Shona and Karl are excited to share an authentic Wild West experience with new and familiar faces! The lodge is located approx. 2-hrs drive from Williams Lake Airport. Transfer is available – no rental car needed!

Since Big Creek Lodge is a working horse ranch, we can offer a full program of activities, including trail riding, cattle work, cattle drives, and round-ups, plus excellent fishing, wilderness hiking, lariat throwing and much more. When going for a trailride, we will ensure the “best fit” and give you an introduction in our arena in order to make sure that you and your 4-legged friend perfectly match! What is often forgotten, Big Creek Lodge is also a great winter location. We also offer a special program for photographers, birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiast, and those simply seeking solace and the tranquility only the wilderness can provide.
Big Creek Lodge is open year-round so you can enjoy a full range of activities in a breathtaking Western Canadian wilderness that changes with each season.
Our 25,000 acre range in BC’s Chilcotin region is full of wildlife, and depending on the season, you might see bear, deer, moose, eagles, wolves, and countless species of birds – from the charming hummingbird to the impressive golden eagle. Plus, there are up to 1,000 wild or free-roaming horses in the Chilcotin today.
There is a roomy common lounge and a dining area warmed by a massive stone fire place. Our home-style country kitchen serves delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. Hearty lunches can be packed for your fishing expeditions, trail rides, daily excursions, and other activities you take part in.
All of the rooms and cabins at Big Creek Lodge have earned a Canada Selected “Four Star” Rating, indicating that our property offers exceptional accommodations with an extensive range of facilities, guest amenities and services. The cabins are nestled among the trees bordering Big Creek, giving you a feeling of remoteness that you’ve always imagined. Most rooms and cabins have a balcony or porch, so with just a small step through the big glass doors you can see the mountains and wilderness and enjoy the fresh, unpolluted air. Floor heating keeps you warm throughout the winter months.
What could be better than enjoying the breathtaking view from our sundeck or Relaxing in our outside hot tub?
