Hotsprings really good. Well put together for a park. Family friendly. Hotsprings are the reason to go here. Worth the walk (not far at all) open 24 hrs. Some people go down in the dark. Moose and bears seen on our walk in.

This is a gorgeous campground with lots of trees. It is dry camping with picnic tables and fire rings. It is about a ten minute walk on a wooden boardwalk to the hot springs. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

The Liard Hot Springs were wonderful! We were afraid that it would be too hot, but it was very pleasant. It was an easy walk on the boardwalk to the springs and the hanging garden.

This is a lovely wooded unserviced provincial park, with water from faucets, and staff are on site. Each of the 50 back-in sites has a picnic table and fire pit, and most offer reasonable privacy. Campers get free admission to the Hot Springs. There is a day use area with tables and fire rings, and a cute self-serve Information Centre. $20 per night. Overflow parking across the highway is an open field and costs the same as at the campground. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one campground you should make reservations at or be there before early afternoon as it fills up every day in the summer, we were told. There is a big overflow parking lot across the street if it is full, though (same price). The campground has a small entrance, but seems to handles all size rigs. Charge of $26 CAD includes access to the hot springs. The campground is super clean and well-maintained. All camp sites are back-in. The people at check-in are helpful and friendly. This is dry camping only. There is water connection near the entrance but it is in a bad place to fill your rig as you will be blocking traffic since the spigot sits right next to the exit yet you will need to get it going in as it is on the wrong side when going out. The spaces are generally large, gravel and fairly level. Roads were dusty. Some spaces are near the Alaska Highway, but the traffic seems to stop about sundown. There is no Wi-Fi and AT&T cell service was nonexistent. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

It's all about the Hot Springs! If you walk about 3/4 mile from your campsite you will find the hot springs. There are restrooms above the hot springs pool but no facilities at the springs except men and women changing rooms and open storage for your clothes.

This is a no services boondocking park. Still it is probably the best maintained park We've been in. Staff was always doing something. Our site had been raked before we got there. Everyone comes for the hot springs. WOW they are great. Not only for the hot springs experience but for the facility itself. The boardwalk is solid and an easy walk from the RV park. Some of the staff were marking boards to be replaced. I didn't think most of them needed replacing but they were changing them. The hanging gardens above the hotsprings are worth the short hike up. We will plan our future trips around staying at this Park. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is adjacent to the hot springs and camping includes access to springs. Camp spaces are mostly back-in, we detached tow vehicle although there are a few pull-throughs. Free firewood (feature of Canadian provincial parks) and fire pits and picnic tables. Sites are widely spaced with trees between and level. Easy walk to springs along the boardwalk. Barrel style fire pits restrict heat output. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice provincial park with the added bonus of the wonderful hot springs. We made reservations several days in advance so we were able to get a spot. Without reservations one might not be so lucky especially on the weekend. Our gravel site was spacious and absolutely level. As stated in earlier reviews, the walk to the spring was reasonably short and not strenuous in the least. I was slightly disappointed in the traffic noise. Perhaps in a different part of the campground it wouldn't have been quite so noticeable. We would stay here again. We camped at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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.
