The Harrison Hot Springs form the centrepiece of a luxury hotel resort. The pools at the resort are for hotel guests only, but there is a public pool one block east of the hotel. The large, wonderfully warm public soaking pool has cooled hot spring water pumped into it.

The mineral rich hot springs at Harrison were originally used by the Salish Coast Natives who revered them as a "healing place", arriving by canoe to benefit from their rejuvenating waters. The minerals waters are said to bring relief to sufferers of rheumatism and arthritis through the 8 minerals present in the water, which averages 1,300 parts per million of dissolved mineral solids, one of the highest concentrations of any mineral spring.

There are two hot springs at the south end of Harrison Lake, the Potash, with a temperature of 40C (120F), and the Sulphur, with a temperature of 65C (150F). The Harrison Hot Springs resort boasts 2 indoor and 3 outdoor mineral pools. The indoor sitting pool is cooled to a temperature of 38-40C (100-103F), an ideal temperature for promoting the relief of general aches and stress, and the larger indoor pool is maintained at a temperature of 32C (90F).

The outdoor pools have been built in a setting complete with cascading waterfall, rock formations, and plants to simulate a typical West Coast setting. The mountains rising in the background complete a scene of bewitching beauty. In the outside adult swimming pool the hot spring waters are piped from the source and cooled to 32-35C (90-95F). For alternatively able people, there is a second outdoor hot springs pool, also kept at 35C (95F), with a gently sloping ramp that provides access to the pool, and a bench that follows the edges inside the pool.

The Harrison Hot Springs resort operates all year round, with the peak season from June through September. Resort guests can enjoy the pools 22 hours per day.

The town of Harrison Hot Springs is a resort town with recreation and health at the forefront. There's swimming, canoeing, fishing, boating and windsurfing on nearby Harrison Lake. Sailboards and bikes are available for rent, and hiking trails are nearby. Harrison Hot Springs is fronted by a long stretch of municipal beach so perfect for building sand castles that the annual World Championship Sand Sculpture Competition is held here every September.

The Harrison Hot Springs are located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of Southwestern British Columbia, on the shore of Harrison Lake, 80 miles (129 km) east of downtown Vancouver on scenic Highway 7 (90-minute drive).
