The park's main attractions include Radium Hot Springs, the Paint Pots, Sinclair Canyon, Marble Canyon, and Olive Lake.
The hot springs offer a hot springs pool ranging from 35 to 47 °C (95 to 117 °F).
The Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park also border the Kootenay National Park.
Development of the hot springs began in earnest after a British medical journal suggested, and a 1914 chemical analysis by Mc Gill University confirmed, the presence of radium within the water.
The Palliser expedition used the Vermilion Pass in 1858 and reported to British government its potential as a transportation route.
On the Columbia River side, an early homesteader included the hot spring that would later become Radium Hot Springs in his land claim in the 1880s, but it was Roland Stuart and his business partner H. Pearse who were successful in acquiring the 160 acres around the springs in 1890 as a provincial crown grant.
While they intended on bottling the spring water, its remote location prevented such development and Stuart offered to sell the property in 1909 to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company for 00.
Though the offer was not accepted, railway engineer Robert Randolph Bruce recognized the potential for a road through the area and advocated for it in 1910 with CPR president Thomas Shaughnessy and Premier Richard Mc Bride, as a commercial link for the province to Calgary and eastern Canada.
Archaeological evidence suggests humans have been either traveling through, or temporarily residing in, the area for about 10,000 years.
