Tumbler Ridge


The Town of Tumbler Ridge (population of 1,987) is located in the northeast corner of British Columbia, on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies, 100 km south of Chetwynd B.C. on Highway #29 or 97 km south of Dawson Creek. The town is located at the intersection of Highway 29 and 52 creating a loop that joins Chetwynd and Dawson Creek.

The community is small, friendly and genuine. Tumbler Ridge’s history dates back millions of years to the time of pre-historic dinosaurs, fish and plant life. In 2014 Tumbler Ridge became the first site in western North America to be added to the Global Geoparks Network, a unified area with geological heritage of international significance.

Tumbler Ridge is a year-round, outdoor, adventurer lovers paradise. Visit Monkman Provincial Park to see Kinuseo Falls, explore caves, try fishing for Arctic grayling, rainbow trout, and northern pike in Tumbler Ridge’s lakes and rivers.

Of the BC Provincial Parks that we operate, Swan Lake and Gwillim Lake are within close proximity.
