Really great experience for a very reasonable price. Clean facility. Although the way the facility was set up it was hard to see a clear picture of the mountains since there was tape and pylons surrounding the fences. Great staff. Regardless a great view especially...More

Having been to several hot springs around the globe, I expected this to be similar. What I found was basically a giant hot tub being heated by the hot springs. No dipping in mineral rich hot water this time, but still very relaxing after a...More

I’ve gone to the Hot Springs at many different times through the years and still the best is in the middle of winter when the snow is falling. Summer is nice too but I personally find it more enjoyable and I can stay in longer...More

They were closed for about a month for maintenance but it's open again. Perfect timing as the weather gets cooler and the temperatures drop. This is always an enjoyable soak in the mountains=beauty+breathtaking.

Nice spot to unwind. Even offer bath ing suit rental so you don’t have to drag your wet suit home. Nice view from here and a great way to relax after a hike.

After 3 days of cycling in the mountains in Kootenay National Park and Banff National Park this was a well needed rest. The weather was very hot but the views were amazing. The pool was fairly full but there was still enough room to relax....More

Reasonably priced. Would be worth a visit after a long day on the mountains. Towel is available to rent for a couple of dollars. Is about a 10 minute drive outside town.
