One Hundred Mile House

100 Mile House is a district municipality located in the Cariboo District of central British Columbia, Canada. 100 Mile House was originally known as Bridge Creek House, named after the creek running through the area. It acquired its current name during the Cariboo Gold Rush where a roadhouse was constructed in 1862, as a resting point for travellers moving between Kamloops and Fort Alexandria, which was 98 miles north of 100 Mile House.


100 Mile House is a centre for outdoor activities and is becoming increasingly known for its richness of bird life. The surrounding area features many lakes for boating and fishing including Lac La Hache, Canim Lake, Horse Lake, Green Lake, and Bridge Lake. The Cariboo ski marathon attracts a large and international field of cross-country (Nordic) skiers.
