Day 86 Visit a real Dude Ranch and enjoy some old fashioned hospatality


Welcome to Big Bar Guest Ranch


a little heaven away from the busy world! Big Bar Guest Ranch,

near Clinton, is nestled in the rolling hills of the Cariboo where time has no meaning.

We are just a 6 hour drive along Highway 1 from Vancouver through

some of BC’s most spectacular scenery … reach us using the loop to or from

Vancouver via the historic Fraser Canyon one way … and then th

e Lillooet / Whistler route the other.

This is a great way to discover the scenic beauty of British Columbia.

The first thing you sense when you arrive at Big Bar Guest Ranch near

Clinton is the spirit of old-fashioned hospitality, and the relaxed

western atmosphere.

At Big Bar Guest Ranch we offer many different accommodations options

for the individual … the family … or even businesses that are seeking

a special place to host a meeting.

Our guest rooms in the Sagebrush Inn have queen or twin beds

– some rooms have lofts … and our cabins are fully equipped with kitchen,

full bathrooms, wood burning stoves and a beautiful view of the lake and

mountains of the Cariboo region of British Columbia.

One of the lodges has six rooms and two bathrooms, making it

perfect for groups or family reunions.

If you want a more simple style of accommodations you can choose

one of our Tipi’s on the hill overlooking the amazing landscape.

Our big campsite area with wash – and shower rooms is also very popular.

The historical building “Harrison House” was built in 1936 and here you

will find the cozy Fireside Room and games rooms with billiards,

fooze-ball, table tennis, and darts.

At Big Bar Guest Ranch we invite you to leave the fast paced city

behind and slip on in to Cariboo time as you feel the freedom that

can only be experienced on horseback.

Big Bar Guest Ranch has access to thousands of acres which make

for some of the most scenic horseback riding in Canada.

Horses are a way of life here and we are proud of our well-trained

herd and our experienced wranglers.

Both will lead you on horseback riding through the rangelands,

wide open spaces, timber and mountain meadows as you explore

some of the most breathtaking scenery from majestic mountains

and meadows to desert … and encounter wildlife, Indian carvings

and interesting land formations as you go.

Camp out under the stars while enjoying late night campfires,

tall tales and warm western camaraderie.

The memory of this riding experience will stay with you forever.

Big Bar Guest Ranch is surrounded by lakes renowned throughout

British Columbia for their excellent trout fishing.

Big Bar Creek joins our network of lakes and continues on to the

Fraser River. Wild trout are abundant, fat and sassy.

So gather your flies and lures & come hit the lakes.

At Big Bar Guest Ranch you can also enjoy hiking, wildlife viewing,

canoeing, gold panning, mountain biking and so much more.

Big Bar Guest Ranch is open year-round and is rated by Canadian

Cowboy Magazine as “One of the Most Scenic Rides in Canada!” …

and Sunset Travel magazine says we are the “#1 Family Guest Ranch in North America”.

You will enjoy the breathtaking 360-degree view as you surrende

r to the vastness of this historic Cariboo wilderness … which is just one

of the reasons that Big Bar Guest Ranch is one of the most scenic rides you can experience.

Remember Big Bar Guest Ranch is a pleasant 6 hour drive along Highway 1 from Vancouver through the Fraser Canyon and some of BC’s most spectacular scenery … or come visit us by taking Hwy 99 through Whistler and Lillooet, to connect with Highway 97 south of Clinton. And for your convenience we also offer shuttle service from Vancouver, Whistler, Kamloops or Clinton. 

Appreciating the offerings of Mother Nature, this corner of heaven comes together to soothe the soul and summon the spirit!
