You want adventure, in a hot spring
Drive the Alaska highway to the Yukon and Alaska.
Park in the provincial campsite and walk the two miles into the Liard Hot Springs, all natural, actually they have gone modern they have change rooms and an outhouse. You will have to keep an eye out for moose and bears, they like it as well. It has been a few years since anyone was killed by a bear hiking in to the pools.
There are three pools, boiling eggs hot, just bloody hot, and warmer.

Doug

Funny you should mention that Doug. I was looking at the map and thinking maybe next time we should head toward Alaska. Two of our kids have spent time there -- one of them actually worked in a hot springs -- Nice to know that no one has been eaten by a bear recently.

I've been camping in the Fairmont/ Radium area since I was a kid and my favourite campground is Fairmont Hot Springs. Its a real quick walk to the pools that have a great view of the mountains and the swimming pool is warm all year and the hot pool is always hot too. The sites vary from power and water to deluxe with cable, pavement and grass. Its also nice to be able to walk to the hotel for dinner or drinks!

Ruth, try out Lussier hot springs near White Swan provincial park. Leave your trailer at Norbury park or the one across from Fort Steele and drive a bit north to the White Swan turn off. It is not far in from the highway and a bit of a scramble down the hill. It's free and was set up by users. It's delightful.

Thank you! We'll be driving to Banff and could stop off at Revelstoke or take the alternative route that would take us by White Swan Provincial Park and/or Fairmont Hot Springs. I was wanting experience hot springs without chlorine and had just about given up on that idea.

There are natural hot springs at Fairmont - on the top of the hill above the r.v. park office and south of that at White Swan.

I also enjoyed Lussier hot springs when we were there. Here is a photo I found online.

By the way, the river in front of the hot springs in the photo is glacier fed and extremely cold. It is quite a shock to sit in the very hot "hot spring" water and then cool off by dipping in the river.
