During covid I thought this was a safe place to bring my family. The cleaning in the building there has been none, the pools are way over then what the say they should be. They are not monitored, what so ever. When I came in to check in there was no enter or exit, people were not social distancing, I had such anxiety. My kids were also disgusted and couldn’t believe the lack of being taken care of in the building.

I revisited Harrison Hot Springs again after many years on a long weekend. Surprisingly, my family & I found it pretty boring while we're not picky at all. More seriously it lacked options for many things in its central location, i.e. south shore, including food, tourist attractions, entertainment, kids friendly places, etc. The public pool there is old & not attractive. We spent much less time there than budgeted, but glad to have come out early and rather spent our time elsewhere, like Bridal Falls, Othello Tunnels, etc.

Beautiful lake and mountains surround the lovely town of Harrison Hot Springs. Walk along the lake front, shop in the quaint stores, meander through the trails, swim in the lagoon or enjoy the water play park out on the lake. There is so much to do and see at Harrison. Don't forget the short walk to the Hot Springs themselves!

This is a great spot for a city break! Bring the family, friends, partner, and you'll find something to do!

The Lake has a shallow lagoon area for the kids to play. Harrison Watersports has a waterpark, bbq boat rentals, bumper boats, etc. Killers Cove Boat Rentals has kayaks, pedal boats, boats, etc. for rent.

You can spend hours here on a sunny day. Bring a mat, sunscreen, hat, etc. There is very little shade. Parking is $9 for a maximum of 3 hours. Signs are posted for social distancing and beach rules (no tents, specific bbq guidelines).

Lots of options for food and drink nearby with, restaurants, cafes, 1 supermarket, and liquor store a few blocks away. Public bathrooms, outdoor gym, public pool (currently close due to Covid19) is in the middle. The west side has the lagoon, rentals and waterpark The east side has the playground, volleyball nets, BBQ and picnic tables etc.

There is a nice walkway along the lakefront. There are several hotels on the lakefront.

We could see kite surfers, seadoos, paddle boards, etc., so lots of water sport options here.

My family looks forward all year to visiting Harrison Hotsprings Hotel. We visit every August for a few nights on our wedding anniversary. We choose one of the Towers as the rooms are newer and our stay is always pure luxury. The hotspring pools are refreshing and rejuvenating. It is a fun and relaxing atmosphere every time. After 11 years my kids expect to go there and they enjoy it more than any other location or major attraction in North America. The Summer of 2020 might be the first year we have to miss it for our own reasons. We look forward to more visits in the future.

Even though the access to the hot spring was limited because of COVID we did not feel as though we missed out on anything on our first trip to Harrison Lake. We walked the town several times and found the views extraordinary. People were friendly and provided some insights into must sees. Advise we certainly took. We were here for a long weekend and longer would have allowed us to do more things but this was a great chance to dip our toes into the area.

I suppose that some of the water in the hot springs actually comes from the hot springs, but it’s heavily chlorinated. And the ambiance is like a holiday inn pool. Heavy chlorine smell, can’t smell the sulfur you usually smell at a real hot springs, and everyone is holding a beer in the pool and playing loud music. If you are looking for a tranquil, meditative hot spring experience, this place ain’t it. And for a hot springs that really isn’t a real hot springs, it’s outrageously expensive for what you end up getting. The lake is beautiful, but the resort leaves a lot to be desired. Would NOT recommend.

Not quite worth the price. Nice to do once, but definitely overpriced for what you get. Stunning scenery and beautiful hiking trails, but in the room you're let with Kurig coffee, foam cups, wire coat hangers, and way too many children in the pools. Definitely not a quiet couples or adults only experience.

Also very poor options for food - buffet breakfast or Starbucks processed foods, pub food, or an array of overpriced pub style restaurants close by. No healthy options. You can bring your own food, but there is only a tiny mini fridge in the room with the option to use the microwave in the lobby.

For over $200 a night, we had high hopes. Save your money and go to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort.

With the warmer weather on its way, Harrison Hot Springs is a beautiful day trip from Langley, Vancouver or anywhere in the lower mainland.

Beautiful beaches, walking trails, biking, restaurants and more.

The annual sand castle building contest is something to see and definitely worth the drive.

This is definitely a location if you have visitors from out of province or to take the kids on a day trip.

The Lake is the same cold and clean lake it always is, but the big news for 2021 is that they've cleaned out the Lagoon. No more plants growing in it, no more water that doesn't look like you should avoid it. It's nice and warm, especially compared to the lake. It's fantastic for swimming now.

And they've added a nice fountain too. It keeps the water moving and it also lights up night! A beautiful and useful addition!
