Sloquet Hot Springs is a wonderfully wild set of shallow, man-made pools fed by a small, all natural, and very hot, waterfall. The pools stretch from the waterfall to the large and crashing Sloquet River. The large, spread out campsite for the hot springs lies a short 5 minute walk from the springs. You have to follow a dark and quickly descending trail toward the crashing river.

  • Incredible setting for relaxing in deep wilderness
  • Fed by a waterfall & located next to a rushing river
  • Drive in campsites are nicely spaced in the forest
  • Springs & campsite are separated by a short trail
  • Skookumchuck is on the way to Sloquet
  • Several pools & two are quite large
  • Far from civilization so often quiet
  • Well laid out drive-to campsites
  • Hike there in winter & you will have it to yourself!
  • Campsite can get rowdy with tailgate parties

As you near, you can smell the unusual, but kind of nice hot springs scent, and you see steam rising all around you, some steam rising, bizarrely, out of the grass clearing on the edge of the river. On your left a rising cliff, on your right the crashing river.  The path narrows and steepens, leading to a large fallen tree which the trail seems to run to. So huge though as to not worry you walking the length of. Then, there it is.

The massive fallen tree flanks it. Nestled between the tree and a cliff, in a large triangular area, with the river forming the third side are the Sloquet Hot Springs. Sloquet Hot Springs is 142 kilometres from Whistler, which translates to well over 3 hours of driving.

Much of the driving is along the In-Shuck-Ch Forest Service Road, which runs the length of the very scenic Lillooet Lake and river. This gravel road takes you well into the wilderness, far from civilization and past quite a few nice sights along the way.

Just 20 minutes north of Whistler you pass Nairn Falls Provincial Park. This is a great pit-stop on the journey to Sloquet, whether you hike the short, 1.2 kilometre trail to the falls or just check out the river viewpoint near the parking lot.  Back on the highway, Pemberton is just 5 minutes north of Nairn Falls. This little town is your last chance for gas, food, alcohol, ect before Sloquet. Continuing through Pemberton, on the way to Sloquet you will pass North Arm Farm.

This is a great place to visit. You can wander around the beautiful farm grounds, visit the interesting farm animals and marvel at the amazing view of Mount Currie. The farm is free to visit and open weekends in the winter and everyday the rest of the year. They have a fantastic cafe with all sorts of baked goods and lunch items as well as various farm fresh produce for sale as well.  Also, a great place for your last coffee before entering the wilderness.
