Come for the Hot Springs, stay for the lifestyle! Harrison Hot Springs is obviously, first and foremost, about the hot springs. The healing hot mineral waters here were revered as the “healing place” by the local Sts'ailes First Nations for thousands of years, long before they were ‘found’ by Europeans in the 1800’s. As for that discovery, the story goes that a group of gold miners were enroute to the gold fields in 1858. Half frozen and exhausted, one miner is said to have fallen into the water. Finding himself neck deep in gloriously warm waters, his fellow miners soon joined him. Hop in yourself to see why!

Harrison Hot Springs: Open year-round, there are two hot springs in the area: Potash and Sulphur which are 40ºC (120º F) and 62ºC (145ºF) respectively. The water is pumped from the springs and cooled to provide an indoor public mineral hot springs pool that visitors can enjoy at 38ºC (100º F). Along with offering relief from aching, overworked muscles from sports activities, the pools are said to bring relief from rheumatism and arthritis. This truly is a getaway for everyone!

Harrison Hot Springs is one of the few places in the world where you may actually spot a Sasquatch! The word Sasquatch itself is thought to be a mispronunciation of the Sts’ailes First Nations word ‘Sasq’ets’, meaning ‘hairy man’, so it makes sense that if ever there was a place you were going to spot one it would be here! Local lore says the Sasquatch hold a reunion in this region every four years, beginning on the night of the full moon in July. For four nights the Sasquatch will meet and play, during which time they keep signal fires burning to invite more Sasquatch to join them. 1940 is the last year fires were seen burning, but there have been other reported Sasquatch sightings in Harrison Hot Springs as recent as 2009.
