Owner description: Enjoy an historical adventure in BC's Fraser Canyon that will evoke deep memories of the old ways. See the summer lodges, smoke house, food caches, sweat lodge, earth ovens and an awe-inspiring pit house. We will greet you at the gates of the village and just like thousands of years ago, we will invite you into our pit house to visit one of our respected storytellers. Come share some of our traditional stories, walk our village and share in sacred memories of our Nlaka’pamux culture.

“Great rest stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We stopped here to break up a long drive to Williams Lake and it was perfect. Well-maintained, educational, excellent for young and old alike. We particularly appreciated the Pit House during the 36 plus temperatures.

“" Truly Historic Experience"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

A aboriginal heritage site and village, known by the people as 'a great berry picking place". Guests experience aspects of the Nlaka'pamux lifestyle, before the arrival of Europeans. Camping in a traditional teepee, or bring your own tent to the adjacent Anderson Creek Campground. Self guided tours are only $5,00 a person, wander the village, check out the teepees and 'big house', a reproduction of a traditional pit house, learn at your own pace from the guide book.

We happened on this site almost by accident; a scorching hot day, travelling through the Fraser Canyon south of Lytton, we were looking for a picnic site, and hoping for somewhere that the kids could swim. No swimming, but the women in the gift shop on site were very welcoming, and invited us to use their outdoor tables. After enjoying our sandwiches, we wandered through the gift shop and mini-museum, displays of artifacts found locally, traditional leather clothing and baskets, and a large black bear (stuffed, of course). A lovely assortment of jewelry, clothing, and gifts were on display. We spent no money at all, but the women were so gracious, we will likely return when we have time to enjoy and learn more more.

This would be a great location for school field trips, visitors from afar, business retreat or other group. There is lots of information on their website.

“Grand Opening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

It is a work in progress and very informative. There is a cute gift shop along with a walking tour of the grounds that has several totems, log house, other native displays. It is worth the stop. It is not a large area so it is easy to see a lot in a short time. We camp at Anderson Creek Campground down below the Village and that is a wonderful campground. We will be going back.

“Awesome family day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

I chaperoned my sons class field trip last year and then decided to bring the family for a self guided tour this year. We had a great time, although I wish we had booked a tour guide. The village is gorgeous and the grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed our tour but I recall that the guided tour was just amazing with the story telling and the games. I highly reccommend this trip for family members of all ages but take my advice and call ahead to book a guide. The guides are very knowledgeable about the culture and traditions of the local natives.

“One of a kind experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Love this Village, my son and I have camped here twice now at their campground that has a beautiful beach along the Anderson and Fraser River Confluence. We bring our 5th wheel but you can also tent or rent a tee pee. Yes, you can rent a Tee Pee to sleep in. The village is set up to look like an aboriginal village that was once located here with a Pitt Houses and other cool structures. The shop has some unique on of a kind stuff and the Aboriginal tour we took the second time was worth it if you really want to understand the culture..

Really cool, we will be back again next summer!
