The birthplace of Canada’s national park system. When three railway workers stumbled upon the Cave and Basin thermal hot springs they set in motion a series of events that led to the creation of Canada’s national park system. Come and visit this inspiring and special place. Interpretive programming, exhibits and film. Admission charged.

A cool and quick stop. The pool invites you to dive right in, but DON’T! The resource and waters are protected. If you have an annual parks pass your admission is covered, kids under 17 are free. Nice interpretive center as well. Great for a rainy day.

Quick little stop. The kids liked the fart smelling springs. It was free to visit when we went today.

The cave and basin are both pretty small. Its $10 to see the cave and basin but there are a lot of exhibits as well. There are trails around this area too that a worth the effort.
