Merritt, British Columbia

There are two campgound/RV parks in Merrit and lots of campgrounds beside lakes in the surrounding area.

The City of Merritt is at the hub of four major highways. It is surrounded by a fascinating variety of scenery - forested hillsides, mountain peaks, grassy expanses and desert-like areas. In the 1880s, the fertile grazing land was the site of three large ranches, together forming The Fork. The original name for the town site was going to be Forksdale but that didn't stick and mining engineer, William Merritt, eventually gave the centre its name. When the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed, interest increased in the coal deposits south of the trio of ranches. Today, mining and ranching are still the main industries, supplemented by forestry. The well-known, well-attended 4-day Merritt Mountain Music Festival is the main reason for Merritt's being named The Country Music Capital of Canada. There are other significant attractions, including Cowtail Classic Mountain Bike Race, Little Britches Rodeo, the Annual Valley Visual Arts Show and Sale and Aboriginal Days.
