Rock Creek

About Rock Creek

So you are on your way!  heading west from Midway lies Rock Creek.  Once a thriving gold rush town of 5000 people, it is now a small settlement at the confluence of Rock Creek and the Kettle River. There are a number of ranches in the area and it is also home to some great festivals and fairs during the summer and early autumn months including the Sky High Blues Festival in late July and the Rock Creek Fall Fair.

It is a community of friendly folk, where people go out of their way to welcome you and help you out.  For more information about the people, festivals, markets, events and must do’s  – visit the Discover Rock Creek page.

Rock Creek is located at the junction of Hwy 3 which continues west to Osoyoos and Hwy 33 which heads north/northwest to Kelowna.

If you’ve come from Midway, Rock Creek may not be too far down the track, but you may like to take it easy on the first day finding your “bike legs” and enjoy an afternoon swim or “float” down the Kettle River.  There is a good general store here – see the Food and Refreshment page.
