About Jesmond

Jesmond is a ranching community in the South Cariboo region of British Columbia, to the west of Clinton on the road between Kelly Lake and Big Bar Ferry. The best places to stay in Jesmond are perfect bases for exploring this beautiful wilderness.

The small settlement is situated on the south eastern edge of the Cariboo Plateau - this is ‘Cariboo Country’. There are a wealth of outdoor activities on offer; horseback riding, hiking, big game viewing (bears in particular), the list goes on..... The soils of the Pavillion Ranges are high in calcium and because of this support many rare plants, so there's plenty for flora as well as fauna enthusiasts!

Jesmond is on the edge of the Marble Range Provincial Park which is notable for its unusual karst limestone formations featuring caves, sinkholes, disappearing streams, cliffs and chasms.

This is the traditional territory of the Shuswap people who continue to use the area for their sustenance and spiritual/cultural purposes.

Clinton is the nearest town, which has an interesting Museum with many artefacts dating back to the goldrush days. Don't miss the annual Ball in May which has been held since 1867.
