As a campground, Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park is a throwback to the days before modern RVs. Most of the sites are too narrow to accommodate slide-outs, especially on both sides, and the road through the campground is too narrow for rigs over 25 ft. to back into a site. But there is a work-around: If the park is not too busy you can ask to camp in the overflow area, which is the day use parking lot. Any size rig will fit there. Why bother? The hot spring itself is worth the trouble. It has a clean, modern change room. The deck alongside the spring (made of teak?) is clean and tidy, as are the stainless steel and concrete steps into the spring and the gravel bottom of the pools. If you have never had the opportunity to soak in a natural hot spring it is well worth stopping for a while. As of September, 2014, construction was underway for new restrooms at the spring to replace the rather gross pit toilets there and in the picnic area. If you have a restroom in your camper you will be much happier using your own.

The location is a few miles off the highway, but the extra miles are worth it. It is very quiet. The park has a variety of sites, from small and closely spaced to large and well-separated. I suggest looking around when you arrive and asking for one you like. Some are only suitable for small campers, others are large enough to accommodate any rig that is road-legal. There are several clusters of sites, so finding yours may take some time. The overall atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. The gentleman manning the office the evening we arrived was a bit gruff.

We stayed at this campground on the way home from a 12,000 mile trip through Alaska and northwest Canada. The 100 yards of dirt road between the highway (Rt, 16, the Yellowhead Highway) and the campground driveway was the roughest road we encountered the entire trip. It had both raised lumps and deep holes. It is reason enough to select a different campground. There are several choices around Saskatoon. And that's too bad, because once you get past that road the campground has a lot going for it. It made us feel relaxed. The sites are wide and well separated by grass, and frequently trees too. The grass was well trimmed, but some of the trees did encroach on the driveways. Most of the sites are adequately long to accomodate a 35 ft. 5th wheel and truck. The rate reflects a 10% AAA discount.

The water at this campground has a boil alert, so in my opinion that makes it almost useless. The pull thru sites are not level front to back, or side to side. Even though we were only staying one nite we had to unhitch in order to level or rig and open the slides. The rate is too high for a campground with uneven sites and unusable water.

Sites are a bit small for large rigs, but that's a fair trade-off considering there are a nice number of shade trees. The managers were very friendly and helpful. Only a couple of sites have sewer, everyone else must use a dump station at the exit. That brings me to the one disadvantage: The exit is a single lane so anyone using the dump station blocks the exit. The rate listed includes a 10% discount. Any one of several memberships will earn the discount. The full rate is $40, which is high considering most sites do not have full hookups.

Beware of the access road! It dead ends without warning, and with no space to turn around. There are 2 poorly-maintained pit toilets for the entire campground. The view is beautiful, so this could be a great site if it received some TLC.
