- Dairy Creek takes its name from the dairy farm established here by the HBC. The company received a free grant of the land in 1869.
- Heffley Creek - After Adam P. Heffley, a pioneer rancher who died in 1871.
- In 1862, Heffley, an enterprising American, with Henry Ingram and Frank Laumeister, brought in some twenty camels from California and unsuccessfully attempted to use them to pack supplies to the Cariboo goldfields. The camels terrified the horses.
- Jamieson Creek - After James Jamieson, sawmill operator, who pre-empted land here in August 1871.
- Knouff Creek - After James Vincent Knouff, a former packer on the Cariboo Road who settled in the area in the 1860s. In 1871 the photographer Baltzly noted that Knouffs was the last farm as one travelled up the North Thompson River valley.
