A must on any bucket list! There is a boardwalk from the Liard Provincial Park Campground to the hot springs, and changing houses, separate for men and women, to change into swim wear. A beautiful not springs, to be sure.

Having been to over 2 dozen hot springs in BC and the western US this is one of my faves. It's huge and very enjoyable. The nearby changerooms are tastefully done if a bit large to be so close to the pools but clean and...More

One of the most beautiful natural Hot Springs I have ever seen. Different water temperature within the same natural pool. Surrounded by nature not concrete! Definitely a place you want to go.

We have been in many hot springs in Canada. This is by far our favourite. It is not a concrete swimming pool that just ruins the whole nature of the area. So well done - A must if you are passing through and a great...More

I would bring them. I don't recall towels being for sale at the forest service entrance. I know they had bathing suits for sale. But I am sure they are very limited.

We saw lots of ravens, rabbits, goats, elk, deer, moose, stone sheep, bison, and eagles. Our first stop after Watson Lake was the Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park, we took a morning dip in the pools, they were clean and warm, change rooms...More
