Cache Creek, British Columbia

'''Cache Creek''' is a historic transportation junction and incorporated village northeast of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. It is on the Trans-Canada Highway in the province of British Columbia at a junction with Highway 97 (British Columbia Highway 97). The same intersection and the town that grew around it was at the point on the Cariboo Wagon Road where a branch road, and previously only a trail, led east to Savona's Ferry (Savona, British Columbia) on Kamloops Lake. This community is also the point at which a small stream, once known as Riviere de la Cache, joins the Bonaparte River. Akrigg, Helen B. and Akrigg, G.P.V; 1001 British Columbia Place Names; Discovery Press, Vancouver 1969, 1970, 1973, p. 35

The name is derived, apparently, from a ''cache'' or buried and hidden supply and trade goods depot used by the fur traders of either the Hudson's Bay Company or its rival the North West Company.

Although still very active with traffic, Cache Creek was extremely busy for a few decades before the Trans-Canada Highway was superseded by the newer and shorter Coquihalla Highway, which bypasses the Fraser (Fraser Canyon) and Thompson Canyons (Thompson River) between Hope (Hope, British Columbia) and Kamloops (Kamloops, British Columbia) via Merritt (Merritt, British Columbia), about southeast.

The nearby fossil locality, the McAbee fossil beds (McAbee Fossil Beds), is noted for the wide diversity of Eocene plants and animals preserved in the shale, including the extinct plants ''Dillhoffia''

The village of Cache Creek is also served by a community television station (community channel (Canada)) (run by the Ash-Creek Television Society), '''CH4472''' in the neighbouring town of Ashcroft (Ashcroft, British Columbia) on VHF channel 4 (with an effective radiated power of 74 watts at 15 meters above ground level), with a repeater ('''CH4473''' on VHF 8, with an effective radiated power of 49 watts at 45 meters) in '''Cache Creek, British Columbia'''.
