The Billy Barker Casino is in the heart of downtown Quesnel and is cleverly shaped like a boat. In the bottom of the building there is a newly renovated Ball Room with a stage, bar, stunning chandeliers and comfortably fits a party of eighty people.
The top of the building has affordable and unique guestrooms with décor that makes you feel like you have travelled back in time. The rooms (The Empress, The Sewing, and The Captain’s room) range in price and amenities and boast the ambience of the Cariboo history.
The main casino seemed like a popular place, offering a variety of games from cards to the slot machines and in keeping with the exterior theme of the building life boats decorated the ceilings. There is also, a restaurant where hungry gamblers can get a decent home cooked meal.
