Clinton, British Columbia
There are two RV parks at Clinton.
Clinton is a historic village in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia, offering the visitor a range of activities. Excellent hang-gliding tops the list, along with summer hiking, fishing, sightseeing in the beautiful and varied countryside. In the moderate to cold winters, there is cross-country skiing, and skidooing. As the eastern border town in this part of BC during the Gold Rush era, Clinton was an important stop for the miners, into or out of the goldfields. BC Rail still stops here, on a scenic route from Vancouver to the more northerly communities. The unofficial designation Guest Ranch Capital of BC is fulfilled by at least six different options for a ranch or resort visit. Tourism is a primary industry here, along with forestry, ranching and mining. The Ashcroft Opera House, in the nearby town of Ashcroft is the setting for a dinner theatre plus stage shows by groups and individual performers. The beauty of the area attracts artists and craftspeople.
