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. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Truck Camper.

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.

Dry camping only at this park. There are vault toilets to help with tanks and there is a water faucet to fill your fresh water tank. No dump available in the area. Free entry to the hot springs (if not camping there it costs $5.00 per person to use the hot springs). The springs are wonderful, very clean and there are changing rooms available. Great way to spend an hour or so. Very sociable placce. Great camp sites. Large level sites of pea gravel, nice big picnic table on a cement pad and a fire ring. Lots of space for your unit and lounge chairs and tables. The buffalo walking by are a bonus and the moose near the springs are too. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

No services. Just hot springs. There is no electric and you can only use a generator from 8 am to 11 am and 6 pm to 8 pm. But the pools were incredible! Definitely worth stopping for a night. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, level, roomy sites. Quiet and wooded. Enjoyed the hot springs and had a couple of nice campfires ( stayed 2 nites ). Will definitely go back there. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.
