There are many excellent accommodation options both lake front on Tyaughton Lake, and close by in The Bridge River Valley, Gold Bridge (30min drive) and Bralorne (45min drive).

It’s a great idea to spend a night or two in the area before, and after, heading out on an overnight trip into the backcountry with Tyax Adventures. Or use as a base for guided hiking, biking and sightseeing in the South Chilcotin Provincial Park and Bridge River Valley.
