'''Ashcroft''' (2011 population (Canada 2011 Census) 1,628) downstream from the west end of Kamloops Lake, at the confluence of the Bonaparte (Bonaparte River) and Thompson Rivers, and is in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (Thompson-Nicola Regional District, British Columbia).

Ashcroft's downtown is on the east side of the Thompson River, although the municipal boundaries straddle the river, with housing and the town's hospital and recreation complex on the west bank. It is something of a "twin" to nearby Cache Creek (Cache Creek, British Columbia), which unlike Ashcroft is on the major highway.
