Until the federal government proposal to privatize all federally operated hot springs pools, you can enjoy one of the best escapes in the world. Soak in a hot spring where you look up at a mountainside and, if you're very lucky, may see mountain sheep on the mountainside above the pool. Perhaps the mountain sheep are curious and come to see the silly 2-legged creatures who sit or lie in warm water.
Adults pay a $6.30 + GST entry fee. Really? This is a ridiculously low amount to pay for entry into the pool. Most adults wisely choose the warm pool but those with children will inevitably be coaxed to the cool pool (27C/84F) where they can be more active. Visitors simply wanting to soak will stay in the warm pool where activity is restricted and is shallow throughout. A small hot tub is available. The change rooms are basic but kept clean.
A tad crowded during high season but very quiet during our Thanksgiving long-weekend visit.
You will also need a Parks Canada pass to stop anywhere in a national park. You can purchase a day pass, multiple day pass, or an annual pass. The annual Parks Canada Discovery Pass is another bargain (good for over 100 parks, marine conservation areas, or historic sites). We've found the Discovery Pass quickly pays for itself. I particularly like that displaying the pass reduces or eliminates the time at entry gates.
