Creston is a medium-sized town in the West Kootenays, located at the south end of Kootenay Lake in British Columbia, Canada.

Get in[edit]

Creston is on Hwy 3, the southern route through British Columbia, about an hour west of Cranbrook. It is also just north of the USA/Canada border crossing at Rykerts, BC and Porthill, Idaho.

The easiest way to get here is by private vehicle.

Get around[edit]

The downtown area isn't very big so you can easily walk around there, but the rest of the town is somewhat spread out so a bike or a car can be useful.




Creston has the normal selection of grocery stores, hardware and building supply stores and such, but is particularly noted for plant nurseries and agricultural produce stands.


The Bistro at the Vinyards - Skimmerhorn Winery & Vinyards - 1218 - 27th Ave South, Creston. Mid-May to mid-October. Reservations recommended.


Columbia Brewery brews Kokanee beer here.
