Liard Hotsprings Lodge and RV Park are situated at Mile 497 of the Alaska Highway, just over 300 kilometers northwest of Fort Nelson First Nation, and the town of Fort Nelson, British Columbia and 140 kilometers south of the BC-Yukon border. The 6,000 square foot log constructed lodge was built in 1993; it contains 12 private bath guest rooms with single and double beds, capable of accommodating up to 6 occupants each; a handicap accessible room is located on ground level. Entering through the lodge lobby visitors will find a restaurant and gift shop. The RV park campground is ideal for all outdoor adventurers and has increased appeal for group gatherings and family reunions. This beautiful setting will help relieve stress and will be an experience to remember for a life time.
Wildlife abounds throughout the park, which is located in a region often referred to as the Serengeti of North America. Visitors to the Liard Hotsprings Lodge are often greeted by wild bison roaming freely along the roadside and lodge. The area's spectacular wildlife also includes other grazing animals such as stone sheep, mountain goats, elk, caribou, deer, moose, and bears are frequently seen in clearings alongside roads as they forage for food.
A short walk across the road from the Liard Hotsrpings Lodge you will find the entrance to the Liard Hotsprings Provincial Park, the second largest hotsprings in Canada. Hotspring waters bubble from the ground at temperatures ranging from 42° C to 52° C year-round cascading into the surrounding bathing pools for visitors to soak and relax in. This tranquil experience sits at the end of a ten minute stroll along a wooden boardwalk that meanders through a warm water wetland and boreal forest which supports rich and diverse plant life as well as mammal and bird species. Watch for moose feeding in the warm water marshes and observe the warm water fish swim in the clear pools near the boardwalk. Due to the lush plant life influenced by the warmth of the springs this area has long since been known as the "Tropical Valley."
Other attractions in the area include a day hike into Smith River Falls, fishing on the Liard River, or hiking the many trails, canyons and rivers of the area. Adventure waits!
