"Tsek campsite T'sek Hot Springs.
It is closed at the moment.
Some say for repairs.
Some say because of covid (the tsek website states this is the reason)
Some say it is political and a dispute with ownership.
Some say the indigenous people would like to keep it sacred and not public.

All we can forsure tell you is this is what it looks like there today. And it is for sure closed until further notice.

Link in our bio for the full story,

Miners returning from the Fraser River during the gold rush are said to have found “hot springs” when they landed. When Judge Matthew Begbie conducted his first circuit of the mining camps in early 1859, he discovered the springs. He informed Governor James Douglas, who christened the hamlet “St. Alice’s Well.” In the summer of 1886, John Brown began construction on the St. Alice Hotel. The hotel first opened its doors on November 1, 1886. The St. Alice Hotel burned down in 1920, but was rebuilt and renamed the “Harrison Hot Springs Hotel” afterward. The hotel was noted for its pools and spas, as well as horseback riding, shooting, and lake boating and fishing.

Quebec is planning the world's largest geothermal lagoon, inspired by Iceland.

A massive geothermal pool could be built in Quebec. The Iceland-style swimming hole, with a surface area of 120,000 square feet, would be the world's largest of its sort, according to promoters.

The lagoon would serve as the focal point of a 600-room retreat in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, a little village on the Saint Lawrence River about an hour north of Quebec City. Restaurants and a spa are also in the works.

To maintain a year-round temperature of 38 degrees Celsius, the pool would use geothermal, biomass, and solar energy.

Hot springs are some of the most magnificent natural wonders you may see, with hot water bubbling up to the surface or flowing from the bank. These mineral-rich waters have been gathered naturally into pools or diverted into man-made baths for ages, both giving therapeutic and medicinal benefits—as well as some good old-fashioned relaxation.
The water itself is hot, hotter than the air around you and even hotter than your own body temperature. Even when the pool's banks are covered with ice and snow in the winter, the water inside is boiling. Hot water bubbles up from time to time, causing the water to become turbulent.
This is why you've come!

Soakers Report: #HalfWayHotSprings May long 2022 @hike.lyss
This photo described that entire trip.

We had met so many people here. We knew exactly how to light the atmosphere with being ourselves, people who didn’t judge, people who told their stories.

The first night we were chatting about how this is the very moments of living our lives & what we are going to remember when we are older.

It was connecting to earth & people, it was listening to the river below & looking up at the stars in the pitch black at 1am. ✨

It was letting go and cleansing, it was healing & soothing, and it was moments of pure happiness. Just enjoying everything for what it is. 🤍

Thank you for capturing this moment 📸 @schlitz_13

The hot spring has a temperature of 64°C as it occurs. A small cascade of steaming water spills out of the Creek's steep perpendicular bank and into two small soaking pools. Downstream is a bigger, deeper soaking pool that resembles a normal creek bed but is warmer. The upper two pools and the waterfall's water could be too hot to bathe in. The supernatant liquid is a layer of cold water that sits on top of the denser, hotter, mineral-rich outflow of hot springs. Before entering the springs, the temperature should be measured by dipping a toe into it. Another big soaking pool farther down the creek bed has a more comfortable soaking temperature. A neighboring glacier-fed river allows for Roman or Turkish-style swimming with alternating hot and cold dips. Camping is permitted at the campground, but facilities are restricted.

Much like their name says, the hot springs sit near to the gorgeous and bustling Pitt River. You must go along Lougheed Highway towards Pitt Meadows and eventually Pitt Lake to get there.
After that, it's a 45-minute boat ride to the north end dock, then little over 20 kilometres of flat logging road biking, ebikes highly recommended.
It's a 5-minute climb from there to the hot springs, with a steep rope down. You'll be able to enjoy the natural benefits of hot springs in one of the most gorgeous locations our province has to offer once you arrive.
Relax in this small slice of heaven, which views out over the Pitt River as it cuts through a gorge. It is a genuinely remote and magical location that is ideal for people seeking adventure.
The journey may be a little long, but it just adds to the enjoyment of the destination. The route less travelled is sometimes the finest road to take.

The first written history of Fairmont dates back to the 1800s, when the Ktunaxa and Shuswap bands discovered the natural calcium hot springs.
These Hot Springs were formed over 300 million years ago when the Rockies were worn down and reformed, creating deep cracks in the earth.
Water collects high in the mountains, enters the rocks through these faults and runs deep into the mountains, Warmed by the heat of the earths core,
it becomes much hotter than when it entered, bubbling back to the surface,
forming the hot springs.
The first homesteader in the area was Englishman George Geary. who arrived in the area in 1887. His homestead was a large tract of land that included the hot springs. The original Geary home is well preserved and visible on the south end of Mountainside Golf Course.
Sam Brewer, a placer miner from Wisconsin, USA was working a gold claim on Perry Creek. His son Hope Brewer was born at Perry Creek, B.C. on May 30th, 1886, the first white child in the East Kootenays.
The Brewer family later moved to Joseph’s Prairie, now called Cranbrook, and in 1888 they moved to Fairmont where Sam purchased the Fairmont
property from George Geary.
In 1909, they moved to the Chamberlain Ranch north east of Windermere. Sam Brewer’s Historic home in Fairmont Hot Springs is still inhabited to this day.
The Resort’s Brewer’s Market is named in honor of this early pioneer.
Added lots of pictures to the site ☺

The village of Ainsworth Hot Springs is located in the traditional territories of the Ktunaxa First Nations (pronounced ‘K-too-nah-ha’) in BC’s Kootenay Forests and Mountains. Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort is nestled into the mountainside, overlooking Kootenay Lake and the Purcell Mountains, and features three odorless baths, a unique 150-foot horseshoe-shaped cave, lounging pool, and glacier stream-fed cold plunge. The horseshoe cave, where mineral deposits and humidity combine to create an amazing atmosphere, is the highlight of the natural hot springs.

Reconnect with your primal roots and experience a getaway at Halfway Hot Springs. Located almost literally "halfway" between Nakusp and Revelstoke, these springs are bubbling right out of the hillside along a river. The springs feed via an amateur tube network into stone-lined mud-bottomed pools. For most, the area is hours of driving away from the bustling confusion and distraction of city life, including cell service. Disconnect, relax and rejuvenate.

Ruth Larsen, wife of Henry Larsen, who made a fortune in logging, was the first to place tubs here in the 1950s. He was reportedly the third richest guy in British Columbia at the time. His wife worked as a gold prospector and was dubbed a "old hippie" by some (although others claimed she was "a bit crazy"). She constructed a home near the springs, on the first road up here, and a long-time visitor told us that her grave is someplace near the tubs in the bush. The first baths, large ancient wooden wine barrels fed by hoses cemented into the thermal springs in the rocks, were installed by Ruth. More people came to visit these springs after the road was restored by logging firms and after Ruth died, and they bought new tubs.
The cabin is no longer standing, but one of the original wooden tubs remains. There are two hot tub forms and one bathtub tucked in the rocks as well.
