Another great BC Hot Spring
Meager Creek Hot Spring has had a rough history.
It's is a great hot spring - lots of hot water, and beautiful view from
the pools. There has been some sad history when the springs were
overrun by rowdy people, but that not uncommon at local hot
springs. About five years the bridge to the hot springs washed
out and access was effectively cut off. We happened to be in town,
and found out from the locals that the bridge had been rebuilt.
The tourism info desk provided us a map and we were off.
There are now managers of the hot springs and they
charged a very reasonable $5 a person to enter the springs. When
we arrived, the pools were almost empty and there were rarely more
people than pools. It had been raining for the last 24 hours
Meager Creek was raging next to us. The sound of the boulders
crashing in the river bed was a frightening contrast to the bliss of
the warm water.
This hot spring is a good distance from Vancouver (3+
hours) so you need to plan to get this far away. That said, it's
well worth the trip.
