Quesnel Forks is a ghost town located at the confluence of the Quesnel and Cariboo rivers.
Over a hundred years ago, there were several hundred people living there, most of them seeking gold in the nearby area. As gold fever passed, Quesnel Forks was abandoned, and its buildings started to decay.
Quesnel Forks became a local historic site, with several well-restored buildings. In the visitor centre, you can get information about the history of the place.
