Photo opportunity.

We only stopped here to take photos but it is a great spot to look back on the lake and hopefully catch a passing train!

From the Pioneer style village to the Round House with Antiques, this place is a must see for the whole family. The restaurant also has good food.

We went just before it closed for the winter and had a lovely time. Rooms were clean and comfy. Staff very friendly. Restaurant served enjoyable wholesome food. Before we left we went around the old western town and train museum. Very interesting.

Have been to Three Valley Gap Ghost Town twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit. What's so special about this town is the preservation effort. Unlike Barkerville or Quesnel Forks or other ghost towns that are on original townsites, these 25 buildings have been found all over and moved to Three Valley Gap. So many of them would have...

We were travelling from Calgary to Kewlona. Ghost town is on the way between Calgary (for 4 hours) and Kelowna (for 2.5 hours). So, this place is good to stop for a rest. This is the place inside mountains, with a lake and with a hotel where you can drink some vine and look at the lake. The town includes... More

I've watched this attraction develop for decades and finally stopped to check it out... what a pleasant surprise. 100 year old buildings that looked like they were still being used. An assay office with tools I remember using, a washing machine my mother used, clocks in a watchmaker shop that I remember repairing with my father, a watchmaker. The car... More

Loved this place this is my third visit. A real step back in time for the history buff or the ghost hunter.

Not really the "museum" types, but we're at Three Valley for the night, so....it was a grey drizzly afternoon, but off we went. We enjoyed every display. This attraction is so well done. The planning that has gone into this Ghost Town is amazing. The shops are well done and it's hard to take everything in...there is so much. The... More

Fantastic place with many little cottages, houses and shops that have been painstakingly relocated to this site. Lots of displays and collections not easily found elsewhere. A whole roundhouse with trains including a ghost train display was lots of fun for the kids. So many interesting things to see - it kept three generations amused for hours...make sure you leave...

We were driving towards Edmonton from Vancouver. The view was amazing when we saw the three valley gap. We stopped in the Ghost Town and were pleasantly surprised by how big the place actually was. It isn't actually a ghost town, but a bunch of old buildings which have a history to them all brought to this one place. While... More
