• Telegraph Creek is an older settlement, with many restored buildings dating back a century or more. There are many deserted historic buildings in the town itself, as well as some that have been restored, including the original Hudson’s Bay Company Store, which is now a cafe, general store and lodge.

    Telegraph Creek is a remote community that can be reached via a rough Forest Service road that runs southwest from Dease Lake, passing through the Stikine River Provincial Park, skirting the Grand Canyon of the Stikine River, and passing through Telegraph Creek to end in Glenora, another former gold rush boomtown.

    Telegraph Creek is located off the Stewart-Cassiar Highway 37 in northwest British Columbia. Access to Telegraph Creek is from the town of Dease Lake on Highway 37 making for an interesting side trip when travelling the Stewart-Cassiar Hwy.
