Family-friendly Harrison Hot Springs Resort, British Columbia

Harrison Hot Springs Resort is about a 3-hour drive from Seattle, and set on the eastern slope of the Coast Mountains on Harrison Lake. It’s one of a small handful of family-friendly resorts in the Northwest, and probably the best.

Guests of the resort have exclusive access to five unique pools, both indoor and outdoor, all of them fed with water piped from the nearby natural hot springs. There’s an outdoor family pool, and kids are welcome in all but one pool. A public mineral pool in town is open to all, and is operated by the resort, so call 604-796-2244 to find out current hours. Admission is around $10 per person.

Rooms at the resort are somewhat small, but there are many comfortable common areas for reading books or playing board games. The restaurants are fine, though the town of Harrison Hot Springs has more interesting options. Village Pizzeria makes several popular specialty pizzas and pasta dishes. 

Location: Okanagan, B.C., Canada, on Harrison Lake (a 3-hour drive from Seattle)

Info and reservations: online or call 604-796-2244
