Maple Creek is 8 km (5.0 mi.) south of the Trans-Canada Highway and on Number 21 Highway, about 100 km (62.1 mi.) east of Medicine Hat. The area''s economy is based on ranching, agriculture, gas, small manufacturing, and tourism.

Maple Creek has preserved many of its heritage storefronts. As well, Maple Creek''s first school, which opened in 1910, is now called the Jasper Cultural Centre, and displays themed rooms of a railway station house and a one-room schoolhouse, alongside a collection of heritage saddles. The Old Timers Museum displays many artifacts from the area''s pioneering years 1870 to 1910. The Fort Walsh National Historic Site, 55 km (34.2 mi.) from Maple Creek, is the site of a former North West Mounted Police Fort, and from 1942 to 1986 was home to horses bred for the RCMP musical ride. Today it offers guided tours of the Fort''s reconstructed whiskey trading post, town site, and cemeteries.

Maple Creek also offers visitors a variety of country festivals each year, including rodeos, Stock Dog trials, a Cowboy Poetry celebration, and a Western Art Show. For a quieter time, Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park offers the highest hills between Labrador and the Rockies, where hiking trails wind between lodgepole pine trees and wild flowers and animals can be seen. In winter, downhill skiing and snowmobiling are popular Park activities.
