LOCATION

Huble Homestead is 40km north of Prince George, BC. To get here, travel north on Highway 97, then turn right on Mitchell Road. Continue another 6 km down a well-maintained gravel road until you reach the parking lot; the historic site is located approximately 300m at the bottom of the hill.

PARKING

There are two parking lots located at Huble Homestead:

  • Main parking lot at the top of the hill

  • Lower accessible parking lot at the bottom of the hill for vehicles with disability permits or visitors that may have difficulty walking


Groups may drive down to the lower parking lot to drop off guests, but are asked to return to the upper lot. Please ask staff if you need a special allowance.

BATHROOMS & HANDWASH STATIONS

All four bathrooms on site are outhouses. One is located beside the lower parking lot, one in the upper parking lot, and the remaining in the site, beside the Animal Barn. Hand sanitizer is provided in all four bathrooms. During the season, the bottom three outhouses are frequently checked and sanitized throughout the day.

Handwash and hand sanitizer stations are available to visitors in various points throughout the site. Handwash stations can be found between the two outhouses located on the site and beside the General Store. Hand sanitizer can be found in the three outhouses, the Welcome Barn, and the General Store.

PHONE SERVICE

Cellular phone service is available, but the signal can be weak. The strongest signal can be found at the General Store. Please ask staff for guidance if you require a consistent signal.

RESPECT ANIMALS & WILDLIFE

Huble Homestead Historic Site is situated in the beautiful BC wilderness. This means that we share the area with many animals, including bears. 

During your visit please keep an eye on your children and other members of your group at all times. If you see a bear while at the historic site, please notify an employee and move indoors quietly.

Following safety guidelines, such as keeping your distance and not screaming or running if a bear is near, will help keep you, other visitors, and the bears safe.

 

If you see bears on Mitchell Road on your way to Huble Homestead, do not exit the vehicle.

The site also runs an animal program every summer, which includes chickens and rabbits. Please do not feed or touch any of these animals unless you have been given permission to by staff. 

THINGS TO REMEMBER

  • Huble Homestead is an invaluable heritage site, and smoking is permitted ONLY in the designated area, located outside of the gates in the lower parking lot.

  • As a public place and regional park, alcohol is strictly prohibited.

  • Huble Homestead does not have electricity or running water.
