Beachin' In Harrison

What comes to mind when you think of Harrison, besides hot springs?

The Lake!

And, we would like to think that we aren't just any lake! From shoreline picnic grounds and soft sand to boat launches and a floating water park, we aren't sure why you would ever want to leave.

Here's how to make the most out of your day adventure!
building sandcastles and sunbathing
hitting up a local restaurant with killer patio views
playing beach volleyball & other lakeside sports
getting in the water to kayak, banana boat, jet-ski, you name it!
enjoying ice cream! (Who doesn't scream for ice cream?!)

Stop by Baskin Robbins to grab a double scoop of your favourite ice cream or a combo. Or head down to Chantilly and try gelato or sorbet. Classics include raspberry, vanilla, and mango or specialty flavours like cappuccino cookie and pistachio!

Harrison Hot Springs is far enough
away to feel away from it all, but only a 40-minute drive from Abbotsford and a scenic 
1.5-hour drive from Vancouver.

Love the journey as much as the visit.
