Choquette Hot Springs Park, located near the Stikine River, protects several hotsprings that seep from granitic rocks at the base of the valley wall, or from mud just beyond.
The unique conditions produced by the hotsprings allow vegetation to grow year-round and are associated with uncommon plant, algae and Archaebacteria species.
Choquette Hot Springs Park is across from Great Glacier (just to the right of the creek) Provincial Park.
Established Date: January 25, 2001
Park Size: 52 hectares
Choquette Hot Spring is a remote wilderness site with no defined access or trail to the spring. The spring exists in a swampy area within a series of beaver ponds, consequently, this dilutes the spring to “luke warm.” If visitors intend to visit this site, be prepared to navigate through unmaintained wilderness and carry all of the appropriate safety and navigation equipment.
Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. Wilderness camping is possible at Great Glacier Provincial Park, directly across the Stikine River.
Choquette Hot Springs Park is located approximately 120 km southwest of the community of Telegraph Creek, directly across the Stikine River from Great Glacier Provincial Park. Access to the park is by boat on the Stikine River or by helicopter.
