We sure were not expecting such a find. With 18" of new snow, the backdrop of this outdoor natural hotsprings was amazing. 4 pools with 4 temperatures, one just right for everyone. Outhouses, but no change rooms. FREE.

I live within a 4 hour drive of this place and it is a day drive
I make a few times
A year! We have camped in Whiteswan park before (park where the hot spring is) and loved it! Very crowded in the summer but during the right times during fall/winter/spring it is very quiet(especially
During the week) it's open 24hrs a day but unsupervised! There have been times where i have ran into the drunk teenage crowd and wished they would leave! But other than that I have had so many amazing experiences there! The people are usually friendly
And alot Of the times someone with a guitar has shown up and everyone there sings along! In the spring sometimes the lower pools are flooded out! But the noise of the river, the eagles flying and the snowflakes Lightly Falling......couldn't think of a
Better place to go! Road isn't the greatest once you turn into the park and the drive from there to hot spring is around 25km

This is a great attraction for ANYONE - young and old alike! A couple of friends and I made the day trip here from Lake Louise Alberta. It took us about 3 hours each way and was well worth the trip! I had been to quite a few other hot springs, all of which have since discovery have been captured in pools and the experience sold to the public. Fortunately this location, more or less, has kept a natural form and is at a free entry. It can get quite busy as it is something you do not want to miss experiencing if in the area, but you may always wait out to crowds. As with all popular attractions there are peak traveling ours, so if you wish to avoid the people, you must make a conscious decision to travel here at another time in the day.

Well worth the 20 min drive on dirt road to get here from the highway. First time I've been in a natural hotspring that is not a cement pool . There are 2 main pools the hottest being the one farthest from the river and the other pools are cooler as you get closer to the river but still warm .It was crowded 'but we were still able to find a spot to sit and enjoy .There are outhouses up top by the parking lot and are big enough to change into your bathing suit . Best of all it's FREE !

This is one of the more natural Hot spring offerings in British Columbia. It does have a sulfur smell. The hot pool can reach temperatures of 42 degrees. Although the scenery is spectacular, it is very crowded. There is no fee to enjoy this Hot spring. For the more adventuresome hot spring addict, Ram creek hot spring is not as warm, more difficult to get to but so worth the drive.
Require 4 wheel drive and small wheelbase vehicle as parts of the road to get there are washed out.
