Mount Layton Hot Springs is reputed to be the second largest hot spring in North America and the third largest in the world. Visitors and locals enjoy the therapeutic value of the natural non-sulphur mineral water, which is treated with an ozone system, the first by a public pool in Canada.
There are four therapeutic pools and waterslides. The Main Pool (temperature 30°C/90°F) has a large swimming area, a diving pool, and a roped off wading pool for the younger guests. Relief from rheumatism, arthritis, and skin ailments may be provided by a soak in the therapeutic mineral water in the Hot Tub pool (41°C/105°F).
Features enjoyed by children and thrill seekers include the indoor high-rise Splashdown Slides (30°C/90°F), the Cannonball Drop, the Turtle waterslides (32°C/93°F) for younger children, and the UFO water playground water fountain park. The two outdoor slides empty into a large wading pool.
Mount Layton Hot Springs is a family oriented resort located on 1,000 acres of farmland at Lakelse Lake, south of Terrace in Northern BC. After your soothing soak, visitors can stroll about the working farm and see and pet some of the farm animals that include donkeys, goats, sheep, and ducks, or take a 20-minute walk through lush forest to beautiful Lakelse Lake, with the opportunity to view local wildlife and birds.
Also on site at Mount Layton Hot Springs are a motel, lounge, and a restaurant with banquet facilities. Camping is also available at the popular campground at Lakelse Lake Provincial Park.
