• From BritishColumbia.com:
    Set amidst rolling grasslands on the Bella Coola Highway (Hwy 20), the small community of Riske Creek is the gateway to Junction Sheep Range Park and a range of outdoor adventures in the Chilcotin.

    The community is named after Mr. L. W. Riske, a Polish pioneer who was amongst the first settlers in the East Chilcotin during the 1860s. He built a flourmill and a sawmill, and supplied produce to the gold town of Barkerville.

    Ranching and logging remain as the main industries of the area. With the amenities such as gas, lodgings and general store available this is the ideal spot to begin a Chilcotin adventure.
