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 the RV. No Wi-Fi, No TV, but you could wash your RV and toad. There was a show nightly at 8 P.M. at the campground theater. The campground is in bear area so all bear attractants must be in the 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 was just a very large outdoor heated pool with mineral waters and it was full of people.

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 Duquette did not find it as enjoyable as Liard or Chena Hot Springs. It was like swimming in an ordinary, but extra large, heated swimming pool.

Radium Hot Springs has 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 springs swimming pool outside. 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.
