Black Creek is a farming community that is now also a popular bedroom community for workers in the Comox Valley and Campbell River areas. 

Black Creek was the host to several logging camps in the early years of the 20th century such as the Comox Logging & Railway Camp #3 which was on what is now Endall Road. Endall Road public easement joins the dead end road with Hamm Road. Part of the camp bunkhouse is now adjoined to a local estate home.
