Redstreak Campground in Radium - The two RV Gypsies had a nice full hook-up site, but branches from the trees on the site scratched the entire side of their RV. No Wi-Fi, No TV, but washing RVs and toads was allowed at this time. There was a show nightly at 8 P.M. at the campground theater.

This is Bear Country so all bear attractants must be in truck of car or in a bear proof locker. No food or food bowls unsecured at campsite - no cooking in tents or tent-trailers.

Radium Hot Springs began with the unleashing of powerful forces that left its tale in heaving, tortured rocks. The earth's crust cracked along a fault, more then two kilometers deep. The shatter zone around the fault lets groundwater seep close to the earth's core heating, pressurizing and returning it to the surface. The soothing mineral-rich warm water and the stunning Rocky Mountain scenery combine to relax tired muscles and bring peace of mind.

However, there were so many people in this pool, that Karen did not find it as enjoyable as Liard or Chena Hot Springs. It was like swimming in an ordinary, but large, swimming pool.

Radium Hot Springs had a wonderful spa. Karen Duquette got a body massage that was fabulous, plus a full-body mud wrap that was also great. During this time, Karen also used the indoor hot tub with jets that she enjoyed more than the big hot swim pool outside (known as Radium Hot Springs). Although Karen found the "hot pool" disappointing, the spa area was fantastic. The Radium massage spa and service was much nicer than Banff's massage spa.
