    Area Data

    Clinton is a village located approximately 40 km northwest of Cache Creek and 30 km south of 70 Mile House. It is considered by some to straddle the southern edge of the Cariboo country of BC. It sits immediately below the southern edge of the Cariboo Plateau. This active community of 650, with its colorful history of well over 100 years and its unique western atmosphere, was founded as a direct result of the "boom" of the Cariboo Gold Rush.


    Geology
    The topography immediately surrounding Clinton is one of gentle tree clad slopes, with a modest Lime Mountain dominating the view from town. However, dramatic viewscapes are close by. Marble Range, just 20 minutes west of town, features craggy mountain cliffs, caves, sinkholes, disappearing streams, cliffs, chasms, and crenellated limestone karsts. Chasm Provincial Park, and its Painted Chasm, is a 20-minute drive north of town. This miniature version of the Grand Canyon, the Painted Chasm displays successive rock layers of ancient lava flow in tones of red, brown, yellow, and purple.


    Climate and Weather
    The elevation of the Clinton, 887m (2,900 ft) above sea level, leads to mild daytime temperatures and cool nights even in the height of summer. Daytime summer temperatures average around 20°C (68°F). The area receives less than 30 cm (12 in) of rainfall a year. Winters bring modest snowfalls with average daytime temperatures of -6°C (20°F). The mild weather and relatively close proximity to Vancouver make Clinton an ideal spot for year-round outdoor activities.

    Recreation

    Kelly Lake, Pear Lake, Leighwood Lake, Riley Dam, Big Bar Lake, Beaverdam Lake and Loon Lake all provide excellent fishing. The Marble Mountain Range, the Edgehills, Mt. Kerr, and Mt.Bowman are a playground for the outdoorsman and woman.

    History

    Originally known as 47 Mile House or 47 Mile, Clinton was named in 1863 upon completion of the Cariboo Wagon Road in the area for Henry Fiennes Pelham Clinton, the 5th Duke of Newcastle, who was Colonial Secretary from 1854-1854 and 1859-1864.


    Every May Clinton is home to the Annual Ball which features a rodeo and dance. This is one of British Columbia's oldest continual events having first been held in 1867 and was a highlight of the social calendar in the British Columbia Interior for many decades. The Clinton Museum, built in 1892, has a number of historical artifacts on display that date back to the gold rush and founding of the area.
