Vanderhoof, British Columbia

Vanderhoof has RV parks and campgrounds in the town and very nearby.

The history of Vanderhoof has many chapters. Members of the Cheslatta'ten and Sai' Kuz (Stoney Creek) First Nations roamed the land, and the explorer, Simon Fraser, chronicles trading furs with them. Then came waves of miners, prospectors, telegraph operators and surveyors, followed by settlers.

The Grand Trunk Pacific Development Company handled the sale of land for a low price and a Mr. Herbert Vanderhoof plotted the townsite. The site was originally meant as a retreat for American artists and writers but the lure of cheap land drew settlers in great numbers. The name Vanderhoof is the Dutch word for of the farm and the name was conferred in 1926 when the town was officially established. Following WWII, the returning soldiers, construction of the Kenney Dam and a logging boom, as well as an influx of American immigrants in the 1960s, heralded a period of steady population growth.

The municipal flag depicts important aspects of town life, namely, agriculture, family, lumber industry and wildlife, exemplified by the flying Canada goose. The city's current population is around 4,000.
