You will love the hot springs here. If you walk about 1/2 mile along a boardwalk from the day use area you will find the hot springs. Stop by the restroom before walking in as there are no facilities at the springs except men and women changing rooms and open storage for your clothes.  Bathing suits are required.

To the right as you arrive, where the springs bubble out of the ground it is very hot, hotter than is comfortable to me. To the left below the small waterfall it is warm instead of hot and more to my liking. Unless you have tough feet, beach shoes of some sort are suggested as the pebbles are hard on the feet and the pool ranges from knee to waist deep. As you sink into the water your troubles seem to melt away. You are at once surrounded by nature and confronted by the warm mineral water. We are now looking for more hot springs as we travel.

As for the campground itself, it has a small entrance, but handles 40 Ft motorhomes with a tow vehicle easily. Charge of $26 included access to the hot springs. All the sites are back-in except for the overflow parking across the road. The people at check in are helpful and friendly. There is a day use area where overnight parking is prohibited. Firewood is plentiful if you have an ax. This is dry camping only, no hookups at any site. There is water connection near the entrance; If you need water, get it going in as it is on the wrong side when going out. The spaces are generally large, gravel and level. Roads were dusty. Some spaces are near the Alaskan Highway, but the traffic seems to stop about sundown. There is no WiFI, no Phone, and no TV. You are out with nature. If you must have your Internet fix or die, you may want to stay elsewhere. But at least stop at the day use area ($5 per person or $10 per vehicle) and get in the hot springs. It's wonderful. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You MUST do the hot springs. It is amazing.

This campground is very nice. There are no pull troughs and hook ups, but you can walk easily to the hot springs. Many sites have wild raspberry bushes and they are delicious. Large rigs will fit. Site 28 is on a hill, and not good for a large RV. Tent camping and small campers should have no issues with this particular site however. Other sites look really level. Specified generator hours are from 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. Make a reservation as this campsite is very popular. Your fee to the hot springs is included with your camp fees. The sites are all back in and nestled in the trees. There is a lot of space between sites. Site #28 is not level for long Rv's. The other sites looked level and looked deep enough to accommodate long RV's. There are pit toilets and water faucets in the campground; there is a dump station. Generator hours are 9-11 Am and 6-8 PM so the camp is nice and quiet. We loved it and will for sure stay here again. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Posted rate is in Canadian Dollars and includes access to the hot springs. We stayed here on the way up to Alaska and on the way back. Coming up the park was full and we had to stay in the overflow parking inside the park. No discount for overflow, only a shorter walk to the hot springs. The boardwalk is about ten minutes one way and you might very well see a moose in the marshes (we did). To avoid the crowds go in the early morning. Staff was very friendly and busy to keep everything clean. Very quiet at night. Threaded water spigot to fill the tanks at the entrance.
On the way back it was less busy and we got a regular site in the woods. Level and clean. Picnic table and a fire ring. Very good privacy, we could hardly see any neighbors. We will be back. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Truck Camper.

The sites are shaded level gravel back-in with no hookups, no Wi-Fi, and no TV. The park was easy to get to and easy to get around in even with our 40' motorhome. The highlight is the hot springs and they are within an easy walk of the campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are a couple of geocaches near the hot springs. The lower springs are cooler than the upper springs and there are changing rooms at the springs.

As a campground, Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park is a throwback to the days before modern RVs. Most of the sites are too narrow to accommodate slide-outs, especially on both sides, and the road through the campground is too narrow for rigs over 25 ft. to back into a site. But there is a work-around: If the park is not too busy you can ask to camp in the overflow area, which is the day use parking lot. Any size rig will fit there. Why bother? The hot spring itself is worth the trouble. It has a clean, modern change room. The deck alongside the spring (made of teak?) is clean and tidy, as are the stainless steel and concrete steps into the spring and the gravel bottom of the pools. If you have never had the opportunity to soak in a natural hot spring it is well worth stopping for a while. As of September, 2014, construction was underway for new restrooms at the spring to replace the rather gross pit toilets there and in the picnic area. If you have a restroom in your camper you will be much happier using your own. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice provincial park with large sites. Park personnel very nice and helpful. Hot springs were worth the stop. No amenities but the park and the springs were all we were looking for for the night. Park seems to fill quickly this time of year so I would plan to be there early if returning. Not all sites would accommodate our 40' rig but there were enough for us to find one. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Lovely,quiet park within walking distance of the hot springs. A little surprised by their rate which had recently been marked up but then you have free use of the warm spring pool. A sign at the entrance said bear in area but we were told this wasn't a "problem bear", it was just getting a "little too close". A very clean campground, sites are spotless (raked) and level,with lots of maintenance staff on hand at all times. Unfortunately there is a boil water order in place for the pump water, so the only potable water was at the entrance. Use of generators is restricted to 2 hours in the morning (9-11) and 2 hours in the evening (6-8). There is a book exchange in the main office. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful setting, great hot springs. Sites are a little tight for big rigs but fine for an overnight at the springs. I'd definitely stay again when in the area. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A lovely park nestled in the trees at the Liard River Hot Springs. Each of the contractor employees we met were friendly and helpful, from the kiosk host to the young man delivering fire wood. Sites vary in size, from short to long enough for our 40' motorhome. Trees and other bushes provide privacy from neighboring sites. The Hot Springs area is very nice and kept very clean. Don't miss the hike up to the gardens. You can walk to the springs from the campground or drive your car over and park in the day-use lot. Saw many bears and wood bison in the area outside the park.

Large very private sites in wooded campground. Sites are well graveled and level with fire-pits and stationary picnic tables. Pit toilets are clean enough. The real treat here is the very natural hot-springs accessed by a 5-10 minute walk along a boardwalk with informative signs about the flora and faura. Pool heat diminishes as you go 'downstream' into the second pool; it was so hot 'up-stream' that most of our party couldn't get close! Even better, admission to the hot springs is included with your campsite and the pools are open to campers all night. Unfortunately, when we visited early July, the mosquitoes were so horrendous that we didn't spend as much time outside enjoying the campsite as we would have liked. (Of course the mosquitoes would have also been as bad in the RV park across the road!) We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

Water available, but no services. No showers or flush toilets, but the campsites were fantastic. Treed and well separated and an effort made to keep them clean. Hot Springs are included in the cost of camping and were beautiful. Impressive how the natural features of the Hot Springs is maintained. We would stay there again.

Price includes hot springs admission. Great primitive campground. Our site (and others) quite adequate for 36 foot class A; nicely wooded separation between them. No hookups, of course. But easy walk to the Liard Hot Springs which we did before dinner, after dinner, and after breakfast. Loved the hot springs; liked the campground very much. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice well-visited British Columbia Provincial Park right on the Alaska Highway. The chief attraction is, of course, the hot springs. The hot springs are very nice with great facilities and are well worth a visit. Use of the hot springs is free with camping; otherwise there is a charge of $5.00 per person or $10.00 per car. There used to be two separate pools, but now the second (Beta Pool) is closed. It looks to be a permanent closure. There is water with a tap, so you can put water in a holding tank. It has a notice that it should be boiled before consumption so we did not use it as we had enough water in our holding tank. There is no dump station at the park. There are pit toilets. The sites are big and well-spaced with some vegetation to provide some privacy, but it is a very busy park. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit. There are some sites that can be reserved and some first-come sites. We had no problem getting a site, but we did arrive at about noon. The sites are all fairly level. There is some noise from the highway, but the highway calms down considerably at night. The park seems to be very well run. Each site is raked and cleaned between uses. Firewood is available for $5.00 for a good-sized bundle delivered to your site. Our Verizon phone did not have a signal and the vegetation precluded any satellite, particularly with the low angle that it has in this far north. This campground is well worth a night or two. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great provincial park with a very nice campground. No services, as is the case with all BC Campgrounds, but you can't beat the setting. Hot springs were wonderful to experience. We did in the evening and again in the morning before we left. Campground is very well kept and clean. If you don't mind not having E/W/S, this is a must stop on your trip up the Alaska Highway.

This is a wonderful provincial park. The sites are large, private, beautiful. The campground is very clean. They rake each site between campers. The vault toilets were very clean. The staff was friendly. And we really enjoyed the hot springs. We knew the campground had no hookups, so I rate it based on what it does have. We would definitely come back here again.
