Jennifer Williams first stayed at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort RV Park in 2000; it has been a summer destination for Williams and her extended family almost every year since. We spoke with her at the park, which is in the Columbia Valley in B.C., in late July.

How many family members are in your group?

Well, it took a total of eight RVs to bring us all here—I’m not sure how many people are actually here right now, because some had to go back to work and will come back for the weekend.

Where is home for all of you?

We come from Lethbridge, Rocky Mountain House and Red Deer (Alberta). Fairmont (Hot Springs) is a great place for us to meet because it’s almost the same distance from each centre.

What’s so great about coming to Fairmont Hot Springs?

The pools, the golf, the children’s playground, the gorgeous scenery, the staff—it’s all great. And for us, at this point, it’s the family tradition—we love it.
