Fruitvale is located in the Beaver Valley 44 km (27 miles) west of Salmo and around 19 km (12 miles) south-east of Trail on Hwy 3B.

Canada/US Border
Fruitvale along with its neighbouring community Montrose 7 km (4.4 miles) away, are just east of the Columbia River and the junction of Hwy 22 A to the Canada/US border at Waneta, BC and Boundary, Washington.

Rural living at its best
Known for its clean natural surroundings Fruitvale can offer you rural living at its best. The air and water are clean with excellent scenery and homes throughout. There are some of BC nicest parks close by and the area is close to some great recreation in the rest of the Kootenays and southern British Columbia.

Beaver Valley May Days
Held since 1911, Beaver Valley May Days is the local festival celebrating a fun-filled family event during the long weekend in May. Highlights include games for kids, parade, pancake breakfast, Beavarian Gardens and a farmers' market. This is a good time for you to get out and meet the friendly people of Fruitvale.

Champion Lakes Provincial Park
The big attraction around Fruitvale has to be Champion Lakes Provincial Park only 18 km (11 miles) north-west of town. Three lakes combine with each other to offer you great hiking, swimming, mountain biking, canoeing, fishing and camping.

Muti-Use Trail
The highlight of Champion Lakes Provincial Park is the 6.5 km (4 miles) multi-use trail that links all three lakes providing lots of exploring and the privacy of going through some old-growth forest. Make sure you take the lookout trail for a great view of all three lakes.

Champion Lakes Golf and Country Club
There is a golf course located near Champion Lakes Provincial Park called Champion Lakes Golf and Country Club. Although it is only a 9-hole course, it is still quite a challenge and will require you to shoot straight on a couple of holes.

Bear Country
Just remember if you are enjoying the countryside around Fruitvale, please remember this is Bear Country as is the rest of BC. Try to avoid the rivers during heavy salmon spawning times unless you feel comfortable with bears around. There is also the possibilities of encounters with wolves or cougars so please play it safe and practice good outdoor wildlife procedures.
