I thought the facilities were great, but campground spaces were so close together that I felt like I was right on top of my neighbor.

Made reservation, person told us no problem to have 4-5 tents onsite. Very very tight fit. Worked almost didn't let our whole party in. Wasn't nice. Blamed me for it instead of person doing reservations. Hate trains. Loved the bathrooms and conveniences. We will be staying somewhere else for future lava visits.

The place is great. Really close to the Lava Hot Springs facilities and to the river. You can leave the motorhome and go to town on foot, which is great! We loved the site. The only inconvenient is that the playground area, and laundry are at the other side, so a lot of walking inside the campground to go back and forth with the clothes.

The people at facility were great. Bathrooms clean. The location was horrible. They put us on a tiny strip of grass (barely big enough for a tent). It was literally right next to the freeway and the train tracks.

We stayed for 2 nights. Andie the owner was very sweet and accommodating. Also John and Isaac were very kind and helpful. Will stay there again

We were surrounded by 7 groups of friends who ran through our campsite. One of the men had a machete he used to trim fire wood and another kept running through our campsite with a wooden gun shooting rubber bands over my young granddaughters heads. I complained to the people that ran thekoa camp. The day wwe checked out the idiots were still running through our campsite. Never stay there again.

Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The east side restrooms are also very nice.

Quick ck in and out

Great family fun. We really enjoyed our stay and the location of the camp site.

This koa had a lot of potential, unfortunately the staff didn't seem to care. The other campers we spoke with also seemed very disappointed. The staff seemed to just make up things regarding services that should have been available being booked or broken, when in reality they simply didn't want to deal with it.

We loved it here. Close to town, clean, friendly people in the office. We hadn't been to Lava in 25 years (used to stay at the city campground - there was no KOA at the time). We will definitely be going again. We camped in our trailer and rented a cabin for our son and his wife.

Wow great facility. We will be using KOA every year now. Thanks for a wonderful trip

Nice place. Trees. Shower house very nice. Trees. Friendly staff. No pool or evening ice cream, but close enough with a short stroll to town.

Very cool and quiet. Lots of grass. Good playground for kids.Clean and spacious showers. Lots of shade. Very glad we stayed here.

getting expensive, always some plumbing issue

The pavilion is wonderful. The cabins have the right amenities but the beds squeak and creak so that you are waking your partner to turn over. They take good care of the park but need to fix the beds in the cabins.

Kids love playground. Bathrooms are extremely cleaan and big!!! Staf very friendly and helpful.

I had a very disappointing at this KOA. We came to stay to celebrate our families reunion as well as my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. Our stay was not satisfactory from beginning to end. 400 characters isn't nearly enough to explain the ordeal that we experienced. Ultimately management was supposed to call me before we checked out and never did. The entire staff needs customer srvc training.

Nice camp ground, but very expensive.

Facility was nice. Woman at the front desk was not pleasant to deal with. Poor communication when making reservation. Became rude and obstinant when I asked her to verify the reservation details. I will not work with her again if I stay here

It was great other than that train the bathrooms where wonderful

Very displeased. We were misinformed on the price and were charge double what we were quoted. Our campsites were not right next to each other as we asked for in March. There was a fence and hill between us. Peggy was very helpful but wasn't much she could do to help us. Wouldn't come back to this site.

Easy to make online reservation. The cabin was really clean and staff was very friendly.

I would rate Lava Hot Springs a 5 but it needs to have a fenced dog yard so the doggies can run around.
Jul 17, 2015
Thought that the price for the site was way too expensive, even with 20$ off. The people in the next SUPER site were way too many and some slept in their cars. They had about 5 dogs and when we hooked up, there was Chihuaua poop all in the back of our site! Between the late night neighbors, the train and the barking dogs we did get some sleep and left early, sorry to wake the guy in the car!

What impressed our family most was the kind helpful staff. Then we watched as a camper would leave immediately their were employees cleaning the fire pits, grounds and cabins.
Jul 16, 2015
The trains and road traffic were very, very noisy!!!
Jul 16, 2015
Much nicer than 5 years ago. Need to move the sewer connection to make it more convenient for trailers. the spot I was in had a sewer connection over 20 feet from my connection!
Jul 15, 2015
Although the trains did not stop me from sleeping (motorhome with closed windows) they were very loud. We bought tube time at the office bc it was cheaper they said. Only choice 5 or 10 hrs. At location it was possible per hour and that would have been way cheaper for us. Not fair to not mention that. Close to pool, hot springs and very nice showers. Old playground.
Jul 15, 2015
Very clean. Helpful staff.

We had a lovely time. It's especially peaceful and enjoyable during the week.

The campground was clean and shady the staff was friendly and liked the clean private showers.

KOA staff were super friendly and helpful. I have nothing but good things to say about them. The tent site was flat and partially shaded. The cabin had a couple of issues, but they were quickly resolved when reported. Unfortunately, the train tracks that run next to the campground ruined it. I live fairly close to tracks, but was still awakened by screeching trains several times.
Jul 14, 2015
The staff and accommodations are always spot on! We really enjoyed staying in the new cabins this last trip! We have stayed in the non furnished cabins as well as tent sites in the past. Lava Hot Springs KOA is one of our favorites.
Jul 14, 2015
We pulled in late and left early but the grounds looked nice and was quiet.
Jul 13, 2015
This is our second time staying here and we love this koa! We go to Lava annually and have stayed at another campsite with a lot to be desired. The koa sites are well kept and large. The staff are friendly and very professional.
Jul 13, 2015
We've been camping here for the last 4 years and we love it!! Thanks!

BBQ grill had so much grease we were unable to use it since it started on fire when lit.

Nice office staff. Showers worked fine and were fairly clean. Location is great for families and those who want to partake in the hot springs action: nice playground, for example. Not very appealing for me, though, as a solo camper simply wanting a quiet place to sleep. The campground is very active, lots of light and noise until 10 pm, plus train noise all night long.
Jul 13, 2015
It was great place to stay... Staff was extremely helpful. We will definitely go back and stay with you again!
Jul 13, 2015
Sorry, but extremely expensive $70 night, right across the road from a train track that literally runs every hour all night, and spots are packed in very close together. No one is around to enforce quiet hours, either. Staff was courteous and it is clean. We normally love KOA....just not crazy about this one.
