Plan Your Trip

Preparing for your road trip to Tsek Hot Springs.

Whether driving to Tsek Hot Springs for day use at our geothermal springs, or to spend a few nights at our campground on the banks of the Lillooet River, you will see some of the most beautiful landscapes along British Columbia’s Hwy 99. From Vancouver, you will enjoy the scenic ocean and mountain vistas of the Sea-to-Sky corridor and the snow-capped mountain ranges along the Duffy Lake Road.

Situated at kilometer 44 of the In-SHUCK-ch (in-chuck-sh) Forest Service Road, your journey to Tsek (Skookumchuck) Hot Springs will traverse along a gravel surface road to the east side of Lillooet Lake after you turn off Hwy 99 from Pemberton or Lillooet. With Lillooet Lake on your right-hand side, you will pass a number of provincial campsites and cross over a few one-lane bridges during your one to one and a half hour scenic mountain drive.

For history buffs, there are a few interpretive road signs written from the In-SHUCK-ch Nation’s perspective about the local history and indigenous legends of the surrounding area. Remnants of BC’s Cariboo Gold Rush era are visible as traces of the Harrison-Lillooet Wagon Road against the hillside.

Although maintained throughout the year for public use, we recommend that you drive the In-SHUCK-ch Forest Service Road with your headlights on and watch for logging trucks. Please note: cellular telephone coverage is not available in all areas.

As you plan your day trip or overnight stay to Tsek Hot Springs, we have a few helpful tips for your journey into the beautiful, yet rugged, lower Lillooet River Valley. First and foremost, please ensure you have a full tank of gas in your vehicle before beginning your adventure. We recommend travelling with a full tank of gas and stocking up on all the food and camping supplies you will need so you are prepared for your visit to Tsek Hot Springs.

The nearest gas station, accommodation, and store to purchase food and sundries are located in Pemberton and Mount Currie, along the route to Tsek Hot Springs via Vancouver. If you are travelling via the Duffy Lake Road, your last stop for gas and supplies is Lillooet.
