Outdoor adventure opportunities in a beautiful provincial park, lakes and grasslands await visitors to Aspen Grove.
The exciting discoveries of copper and silver in the area in the late 1800s created a hive of activity at the nearby Copper Mountain (continuing into the 1990s) and in the Aspen Grove Copper Camp (dwindling by the 1920s). To visit the old mine sites, lakes, streams and valleys in the region, explore the logging roads between Hwy 5A and Hwy 5 (with caution as logging trucks have right-of-way!).
This historic building is a great photographic opportunity and a memory of your visit to Aspen Grove.
