Another great BC Hot Spring



Meager Creek Hot Springs
Meager Creek Hot Spring has had a rough history.  It's is a great hot spring - lots of hot water, and beautiful view from the pools.  There has been some sad history when the springs were overrun by rowdy people, but that not uncommon at local hot springs.  About five years the bridge to the hot springs washed out and access was effectively cut off.  We happened to be in town, and found out from the locals that the bridge had been rebuilt.  The tourism info desk provided us a map and we were off.


Gyser Next To Creek
There are now managers of the hot springs and they charged a very reasonable $5 a person to enter the springs.  When we arrived, the pools were almost empty and there were rarely more people than pools.  It had been raining for the last 24 hours Meager Creek was raging next to us.  The sound of the boulders crashing in the river bed was a frightening contrast to the bliss of the warm water.

Hot Pool Next To Raging Stream

This hot spring is a good distance from Vancouver (3+ hours) so you need to plan to get this far away.  That said, it's well worth the trip.


If you are looking for local hot springs, you may also want to check out St. Agnes Wells and Sloquet Hot Springs.
