Takhini Hot Springs is just 30 kilometres (18 miles) north of Whitehorse, about a 25-minute drive from downtown Whitehorse. Please bring your indoor footwear such as flip flops or crocs to wear in the change rooms. Please be advised that there are no kids after dark allowed in the pool! We hope you visit us!

“Not naturesque in the least, but enjoyable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We cam, we camped, we swam. All was relaxed, all was enjoyable, all was very cool. This is a pool fed by a hot springs. Camping is in a gravel lot. If you do not expect nature, it is swell. The pool had a snack bar and foosball table. Reminded me of a community pool just like you might find anywhere else in the world.

“Perfect place to go after a morning hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is an old facility do a little rough around the edges but the waters are what count and they are lovely, so soothing to the muscles after a lot of hiking, bring your own flip flops.

“I would pass on this one”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

The hot springs here are not in a natural setting. What you have here is a giant, cement pool that they supposedly fill each morning with luke warm water from a hot spring somewhere on the property. Compared to the Liard River hot springs which is a BC provincial park, and much cheaper I would pass on this and find something better.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

You should visit if you are in Whitehorse. Pools are ok... good enough soak... was a little crowded on the day we were there.... restaurant food expensive. Kids had a blast though, playing in the warm water.

“Getting there...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

It seems a little run down and grungy, but it is still a nice visit. I know they are working on it and I am sure it will get better and better!
