About
Adjacent to the Lillooet River, in the Pemberton Volcanic Belt, you will find Tsek Hot Springs and the sacred location of the In-SHUCK-ch and St’át’imc people (nkúkwtsa) of British Columbia. The nkúkwtsa established a permanent village of (s7)ístken (pit houses) and plank houses along the banks of the Lillooet River, and a series of trails through the nearby forests to hunting grounds and neighbouring villages. The mineral hot springs at Tsek provided our ancestors with physical and spiritual wellness, while the loose, sandy nature of the soil made the cedar tree roots grow long and straight. Tsek’s hot and cold springs became the most important spiritual site in the lower Lillooet River Valley. It is said that the cool spring served as a healing pool where the Elder mothers trained men to be chiefs, watchmen, and other important positions in the In-SHUCK-ch Nation. Pronounced “chick”, Tsek Hot Springs (also known as Skookumchuck Hot Springs and St. Agnes’ Well Hot Springs) has continuously been occupied and utilized by the St’át’imc people as a location to heal and cleanse the body and spirit centuries before Europeans arrived along our shores.

Camping Outside beside Lillooet River , 7 outdoor hot tubs natural springs fed into each tub. Group or single campsite , fantastic scenery relaxing , fishing , 4x4 , hunting. This is the real outdoors of B.C , I have been there 4 times now and have met people from Japan , Germany all over who love it. Ask a BC4x4 club online for Back road info and updates this is very hard core 4x4 route and closures do to weather conditions. Other route is the Sea to Sky Hwy thru Whistler or #1 Hwy thru the town of Lillooet all paved then 10 Km clean easy smooth dirt rd to springs.

This camp site is worth the 48 km drive if you have van, jeep or suv. I did the trip with a jetta. The road is rough and I had to drive much slower than big vehicles. That being said, the camp site is a nice relaxing place. The operator is quite a character. Don't have a foamy, he will lend you one. Forgot your hatchet, he has one. What a hoot!! Very basic services. Pack in pack out garbage.. View getting there is also great. Hot tubs are basic but unlike other hot springs there is no sulfur smell.

The 45 km of gravel road are rough in places, but the drive will take you to a different place, within an hour. Good bye wifi and all those the other conveniences. The campsite is somewhat primitive, beside a wide and wild-looking Lillooet River and the bathrooms are only outhouses. The prize are the hot springs and they are sublime, if you time it right. For me that would around dawn, when you have a choice of a half dozen tubs and basins, perhaps all to yourself. For the culturally curious, Skatin (pronounced Schkateen) is just a few kilometres down the In-CHUCK-ch Forest Road. Don't be put off by the shabbiness of the small village as visiting the Church of the Holy Cross (1905) will be interesting. Note the "carpenter gothic" details in the somewhat rundown building. You might feel like you are in another time. The road will beat up your car – take your time and check your spare, before you go. No services so be fully equipped with everything, if you are camping.

I mean, this is the worst paid hot springs in the province that I’ve visited - and even worse than most of the paid ones. The area is really nice and the campground is good, but there is a next to no maintenance or cleanup. The deck is falling apart and can be a danger to walk on, there is trash laying around, shrubs growing in the changing rooms, some of the outhouses are fallen over, the tubs are filthy… overall I don’t understand what the money you pay goes to because it sure isn’t towards operations. I’ve talked to some of the older folks in Pemberton that have claimed that these hot springs were in better shape and better maintained back when they were free, because willing people would fix things. Now that it’s paid no volunteers will go do it and whoever runs the site now sure isn’t interested in getting it done. Personally, I’d recommend hiking to one of the free natural hot springs around the Pemberton area instead, or actually visiting a resort that has to pass some sort of health and safety inspection.

I have been visiting this hotspring since 1990. I have never seen it in such a poor state. When it was user maintained many of the regulars (hats off to the Laird Donald aka Jeff W) kept the place up because we loved it. Now that the title is "being held in trust by the federal government " responsibility is ambiguous and none of us old "Well's Angels" are as inclined to do the work we used to since we are being charged exorbitant fees for no garbage pickup, no toilet paper, no attendants after 5pm and....n minainance. Boards i put in place 20 years ago i would no longer risk standing on. Shameful.

To be clear, "nominal fee" is $30.00, and there is no other place to stay except the campground. People who are thinking about travelling to T'sek Hot Springs deserve to know that patrons there generally bathe in the nude, and that, due to the crowded nature of the place, the nudity is really obvious and will burn your eyes out. I mean everything about this place is truly decent, from the help to the actual campground, but the hippie genitalia....It just ruins it for anyone looking to get away.

There I was, prepared to find hippy genitalia everywhere. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the place was almost empty of people. I think it's because I went in off season Late March, but looking around, the few people who were there, were genitalia covered. In fact, I felt so comfortable and at peace in the hot springs surrounded by covered individuals and rustic natural beauty that I could feel all my worries just melting away. So worry free and comfortable, that I made myself a little more comfortable. And then I realized the truth.

It was me all along.
I was the naked hippy genitalia.

Keep going on this road and cross the river to sloquet hotsprings.... Best place on earth.
Pack out what you bring in... Please respect! A waterfall fed hot spring in a pristine natural setting will "time out of mind" you. Travel south for 76 k then turn west for 9 k
Good for but all very low slung vehicles be prepared with lots of water food and a spare or two. This is a sacred place trend lightly... Camp at the springs, the sites are awesome picnic tables and campfire pits. Short steep hike into the spring. You will never want to leave, bring a backroad map and go slow...you'll get there watch for logging trucks and check the weather prior to leaving. There are dangers of washouts up and down that back road...watch for Sasquatch!

It's ironic that since this wonderful place has started charging more maintenance has gotten worse. I had to reconnect the hot water pipes to tubs myself 3 times in one night. Now, I've been going there and fixing stuff for over 20 years but now that I have to pay 30 bucks a night I kind of expect not to have to as often. The reverse seems to be true. I nearly had a foot go through the deck as well. I will say Some, not All, of the "new " tubs are nice, but don't look at what they're standing on or you won't want to get in. I will also note it seems odd now that they are charging that there is still no garbage disposal and that they sell not supply toilet paper for the outhouses that don't seem to get cleaned often.
