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.

Charted for a disappointing and borderline unsafe experience
Sep 2020 • Friends
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.

Wished they did some cleanup :(
Jul 2019 • Couples
Although there were some aspects that we loved, it was remote and somewhat peaceful, the maintenance was poor. The outhouses had not been cleaned in a very long time....smelled awful and were over run with flies and to top off there was no toilet paper. Signs in all the outhouses to buy TP at the office and they had none! Change area in the hotsprings was full of garbage, including used tampons (not to be gross but to add context). We paid 30$ to stay and in my mind I expect some level of cleanliness! This place has so much potential but really needs some TLC.

Relax and refresh
Apr 2019 • Couples
1.5hr away from Pemberton downtown.
30mins driving 99hwy after that 1hr driving on off road with beautiful Lilloet lakeside.
Tsek hot springs water is not a free. Water is clean and very hot but need little bit more maintain. They have camping area but washroom is very natural.

Re: Naked people everywhere
Mar 2019 • Couples
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.

Maintenance has slipped backwards
Nov 2018 • Solo
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.

Naked people everywhere
Oct 2016 • Couples
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.

Great rustic hot springs
Aug 2015 • Family
This is a great rustic hot springs. Pay nominal fee to enter, and there is a campground as well if you want that. Great place to go in the evening when it gets cool and star gaze. Best if you have a 4x4. In the evenings there might be some nudity, so probably not the best for young kids at that time unless you are a really, really free spirit parent. Really hot water is not that great for the younguns anyhow, so you might be better to go to Lillooet Lake with the little guys.

SLOQUET HOTSPRINGS!
Oct 2015 • Solo
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!
