Finding Adventures at Crazy Creek Resort and Hot Pools 

 6162 Trans-Canada Hwy, Malakwa, BC V0E 2J0


If you're traveling along the Trans Canada Highway in eastern British Columbia, you can't miss Crazy Creek Resort and Hot Pools. Situated between Revelstoke and Sicamous, they have large signs, are easily seen from the highway, as well as having a huge waterfall also visible from the hwy. Interestingly, the resort is located in Malakwa, or more specifically, located at the grounds for the ghost town of Taft. Alternatively, if you're coming from Vancouver to Calgary or vice-versa, it is conveniently located right in the middle of that journey. The perfect spot for a break on your travels year round!

The Relaxing BC Hot Pools with Mountain Views

With all there is to see and do in this area, you may want to give yourself extra time here! Obviously the main feature of this mountain side B.C resort are the outdoor hot pools! Open year round, they are easily accessible to everyone as the main building where they are located is wheelchair accessible. Located close to the parking lot, it is easy to drive from your suite, or do the 10 minute walk, depending where you are staying on the resort. We were in suite 3 on the far side, so would just drive over to avoid the cold walk with a toddler. There are 4 pools at Crazy Creek Resort. 2 being hot pools. 1 kept at a temperature of 104 and the other at a temperature of 98. Additionally, they have a plunge pool for those brave enough to jump into the 8 degree water! All 3 of these pools are open year round. They also have a large seasonal pool, kept around 89 degrees open from May until October. The hot pools are large, giving room for everyone to enjoy the tranquility of this area. The pools light up at night giving a beautiful glow as you relax in the warm water. Plenty of seating available around the pool deck. Open 7 is days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission to the pools are included in your stay at the resort when renting a cabin or suite. But don't worry! If you're just passing through the area, the pools are open to the public as well, for a small day rate!

Explore the Suspension Bridge Attraction and BC Waterfall

The 1st thing that ever caught my eye here is the almost 100ft Crazy Creek Waterfall from the highway. An absolute beauty. Cascading down the mountain, this waterfall has a great flow year round. You can see if from the highway, but it is much more enjoyable to so the short trail to get up close to this natural beauty. Because this waterfall is on private property, Crazy Creek Resort property, you will be charged admission if you want to get closer to the waterfall. Regardless if you are staying at the resort, admission to the waterfall and suspension bridge is required. It is not included in your stay. For the cost of around $12 per adult, the price is fair for what they offer on that adventure. Not only will you get to wander the beautiful forest to the waterfall, but there is also a 240ft Suspension bridge crossing above the falls! Additionally, they have many different well kept viewing platforms to snap those perfect photos, as well as an ice cream shop (seasonal), historical information, and activities for the kids. Curious how they built the Suspension Bridge? You'll learn all about it on the hike around the falls. This area is also considered wheelchair accessible with some assistance. Call the resort ahead of time to learn how they can assist you if needed.

Wander The Ghost Town of Taft

 A unique feature of Crazy Creek Resort and Hot Pools is the fact it's located amongst the ruins of the old town of Taft, British Columbia Canada. Dating back to the late 1800s, a once-upon-a-time town that thrived along the main train route to Vancouver. Interestingly, you can take a walk along the trails of the resort to find the old ruins tucked into the trees. While exploring the town of Taft, you will find remains of the old train station, the sawmill, and if you venture a little farther, the old hotel too. For reference, the Taft post office was in operation from February 1, 1908, until November 30, 1945. The population in 1918 was 17. Take a wander through the trees and imagine what this logging and farming community was like in its prime.

Crazy Creek and Eagle River Access

 Adventures at Crazy Creek Resort and Hot Pools in British Columbia Canada includes a walking trail along Eagle River that is only open to the resort guests. Eagle River is known for its amazing fishing, beautiful clear water, and stunning views. If you're lucky, and you visit during the fall, you may even get to witness part of the salmon run. Where the fish make their way from the ocean to the inland rivers of B.C. to do their spawning. It really is a site to see. Skip rocks, watch for wildlife, or just relax and listen to the water flowing by. Explore the trails along Crazy Creek for a more secluded forest hike.

Kids Will Love the Playgrounds and Bike Track

 Not only are there hot pools, a waterfall, a ghost town, and a suspension bridge, but the resort also boasts 2 playgrounds and a bike pump track! Kids of all ages will love the clean and safe playgrounds and if you've got a little biker in your life, they'll have a blast on the bike track! The playgrounds are nicely located on each side of the property, so regardless of which area of the resort you're staying at, you shouldn't be far from 1 of the 2 play structures.

Explore the Off-Road Trails on Site 

 We're not done with what there is to do at Crazy Creek yet!! Go ahead and bring your ATV or side-by-side with you on this adventure in British Columbia Canada. This awesome place to stay in B.C. sits on 165 acres of resort land! Giving way to a ton of trails to explore between Revelstoke and Sicamous. Considered to be "easy riding trails" and among the best in the area. Furthermore, being located in the Eagle Pass, this is a phenomenal base camp for snowmobile adventures as well.

Accommodations Available at Crazy Creek Resort and Hot Pools

Are you a camper? Pitch a tent and enjoy the night skies and fresh air here at Crazy Creek. The trains pass by very very close, so if you like to see and hear trains, this is the place for that.

Travelers with trailers or RVs are also very welcome here, with plenty of RV-friendly sites, a few are even available year-round!

Not feeling up to camping and would just like to unwind and relax completely? Well then, you can book one of the beautiful cabins or suites available with all the comforts of home at your fingertips. Full kitchen suites and cabins make for convenient meal times. However there are not many dining options in close proximity to the resort, so the full kitchens are a fantastic feature of Crazy Creek. Pack your food, or shop in nearby Revelstoke to the east or Sicamous to the west, and you'll have no need to leave the resort. I thought it was very cool that our suite was in the old fish hatchery building!

Great information and photos Ange! Those mountain hot pools look so amazing - much better than a manufactured hot tub! I travelled to Revelstoke once years ago and loved it! I wanted to do the coaster down the mountain but it wasn’t open during my visit! BC is such a beautiful province and so so many adventures!

Now that's a suspension bridge I think I could handle. The hot pools sound great too. You've introduced me to a destination I've not heard of before. Thanks. I'll keep it in mind.

Andrea Horning Those pools must have looked like pure magic to the littlest seeker - I would have been dreaming about those for months afterwards!
