Known and used for centuries by the First Nations People, it was first turned into a commercial venture about one hundred years. During the 1940s, the pool – at that time made of wood and canvas – was used by United States Army while they constructed the Alaska Highway. In 1950 a concrete pool was built and that was later replaced by the existing pool and building in the 1970s. Today, it is a locally run business which incorporates two pools at different temperatures and has a campground with over 80 sites.
