  • Seton Portage refers to a small community that resides within the Seton Portage Historic Provincial Park which is located 44 miles (70 km) west of Lillooet on the south side of Seton River. Access to the park is by gravel road from Shalalth to Seton Portage.

    The tiny 0.7-hectare Seton Portage Historic Provincial Park commemorates the location of the first railway in British Columbia. When the rich gold mines of the Bridge River Valley were in full swing in the 1930s, supplies for the mining camps came up the rail line to Seton Portage and were then packed over Mission Mountain into the adjacent valley.

    There are no facilities or amenities in the park. Residents travel to Lillooet for all their consumer needs.
