Your hosts, Dirk & Tracy

Keno City is a magical place that lies "at the end of the road."

Dirk Rentmeister first arrived in the Keno Elsa Calumet area as a child in 1964 and lived there for 25 years. He spent his childhood going to school in Elsa, and playing in the great outdoors. Later, and like his father before him, Dirk spent many years working underground for United Keno Hill Mines Ltd. Both the mine and the town of Elsa came to a screeching halt on January 7, 1989. The town of Elsa was evacuated, and Keno City puttered along: a "town" of colourful 5 per cent characters that to this day contribute to the unique attributes of this small community. Like so many others looking for employment, Dirk left Elsa and Keno City when the mine closed. It wasn't until Dirk met his bride to be, Tracy, in 1993, that he – with Tracy by his side – returned to Keno City.

Things to See, Do &
                Occupy Your Senses:

This is the land of the "Midnight Sun" – That's right, the sun barely sets during the months of May, June, July and most of August. With so much to do, it's a blessing the sun so graciously provides the light to explore and play! 

Here are just a few suggestions for activities that can be enjoyed in the Keno City area:

- Enjoy the numerous trails and old mining roads on Keno City area hills and hill tops and go hiking, mountain biking and ATV riding. With many km of mountain trails and old mining roads in the immediate area site seeing will be second to none. Guided tours may be available with advance notice;

- Get introduced to the fauna and flora available in this remote, pristine wilderness area (don't forget your binoculars);
