This is a very small town but it does have the essentials. The visitor's center was helpful and they have a nice grocery store. We didn't see enough to keep us there very long and decided to get a hotel in Kamloops.

This is a nice stop to overnight or to stay if you are going to visit Wells Grey park. There is a newer supermarket to get whatever you would need. We enjoyed the little town in a very beautiful mountain range.
