Roberts Creek
Located on the Sunshine Coast 10 km (6.3 miles) north of Gibsons, Roberts Creek is situated about halfway to Sechelt. Roberts Creek is a small community with a very relaxed atmosphere generally made up of retired people, artists and some people who commute to Vancouver for work.

'The Creek'
Known locally as 'The Creek,' Roberts Creek is a small village situated a short distance off Hwy 101 on Roberts Creek Road. Here you can find a small neighbourhood community made up of a general store, post office, arts centre and a very good bakery café called 'The Gumboot Garden Cafe.'

The Gumboot
Definitely the meeting place in Roberts Creek, the Gumboot is a great place to go hang out, relax and eat some freshly made baked goods. The Gumboot has recently expanded to a large building next door to the original café which includes a bigger restaurant with a patio terrace and a large garden area.

Roberts Creek Regional Park
From the village it is just a short stroll down a hill to the ocean water on Beach Ave. Here you can find Roberts Creek Regional Park which includes the Roberts Creek Pier. The park is right next to the creek after which the village of Roberts Creek is named.

Beautiful Ocean Views
There is a rocky beach here with a natural rocky pier and sand pathway that jut out into the water. Once at the end of the pier, you can find beautiful ocean vistas towards the west then, looking back, nice views of the beach and waterfront residences.

Roberts Creek Provincial Park
Just a little north of the village is Roberts Creek Provincial Park. The park is broken up in two halves with a campground situated on Hwy 101 and the picnic beach area at the end of Flume Road and Beach Ave.

Creekside Salon
Located in the rear of the original Gumboot is The Creekside Salon where you can sit down and enjoy a good book or meet and discuss different topics with other people. Situated across the courtyard is Inside Passage - School of Fine Woodworking where you can watch future artisans in action through the big windows.

Accommodation
If you would like to stay in the area, there are a couple of B&B's in Roberts Creek. Otherwise there is a better selection in Gibsons and Sechelt. For RV Camping, there is the campground at Roberts Creek Provincial Park or Creekside Campground which is only five minutes north up Hwy 101 at Wilson Creek.

Camp Byng
If you do happen to driving towards Gibsons from Roberts Creek along the way you'll pass the Scout camp called Camp Byng. Many fond memories were experienced by generations of kids enjoying the mile or so of ocean foreshore at Camp Byng.
