Campground Reviews

The most comfortable beds we have ever slept on. Seriously! We had a fantastic time this KOA was comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were clean and updated and we were super close to the Hot Pots of Lava hot springs. We had a great stay and will definatly be here again soon.

At the time of our stay the restrooms needed some attention. Trash cans were overflowing around the campground.

It was a very short stay but you aided in making it a very restful stay. We lost our keys traveling and you aided us in getting aid to unlock and get things that we needed in a very short time, which was also needed. Thank you very much. My son and grandson enjoyed your river and hot springs and we enjoyed the sound of the river. Thank you again.

The hosts were friendly and helpful with our stay. The new bath and laundry facility was a plus. Proximity to the Hot Springs is particularly nice.

Corey and his wife were very nice. They helped us get to the spa and mineral baths during our stay. We will make reservations to stay next year.

It was a nice comfortable stay at a clean campground. We did not have any fuses in our power box so I had to go find some.

The scenery was beautiful, weather perfect, camp host very friendly and accommodating. Most picnic tables in poor shape. Too many Fire Flies other than that very nice stay!

Great campground right on the river, friendly people, we will stay there again!

Beautiful scenery of river and mountain. Big downside, however, is the campground is perched at the corner of the mountain where the trains run VERY FREQUENTLY and high-pitched brakes are heard NIGHT and day! Also, lots of highway/truck noise. Otherwise, the camphosts were very lovely and helpful people. We would consider returning, but will take a fan and earplugs to diminish the train nois

This campground has great potential but is run down. The sewers were slow to empty. The grass was very sparse and in general it was not taken care of like most KOAs.

Great as always

What a beautiful time we had at the KOA in Lava. They are constantly adding improvements. The new bathroom/shower/laundry area are fabulous. Great pizza and service. The owners are very willing to please their guests. I will surely stay there again!

For the amount of people that was camping the staff and the owners did a great job. Facility was clean. Great place to get away with your family.
Sep 22, 2012
very nice you do really need to update the bathroom by office we have told several people about6 our stay will stay again

This KOA is in a beautiful location. However, the area is not well kept; garbage was piled up in the common areas and had been for several days. The shower rooms had not been cleaned in the time we were there. The only time we saw the office open was the day we registered. So sad as this could be a wonderful campground experience.

VERY NICE!! AS USUALL KOA IS OUR FAVORITE
Sep 18, 2012
the womens restrooms have a few problems with locks on the shower and stall doors not working, but the staff is very friendly and helpfull, the camp is clean and quite except for a few trains that go by across the highway. Close enough to walk to the hot springs and stores in town. Larger swimming pool about 5 blocks away. Another stay for sure in the spring.
Sep 18, 2012
Not a lot for comparison, first KOA stay. Tiffany, hostess was great. Not a lot of shade on my side, but growing. Thank You.
Sep 16, 2012
Great service and close to everything. Corey, the campground host is AWESOME! Only draw back it is close to the freeway. This is the only reason I give it a 4 star otherwise, will plan to stay there again.
Sep 15, 2012
Great place to stay. Trains go by durning the day and some at night. wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. clean bathrooms and up to date. Great helpful people.
Sep 14, 2012
The host were great to start with. The bathrooms were amazing they were seperated into seperate rooms with a nice shower and sink. It was nice to have a fire pit and grill at each spot. They sold and delivered firewood. It is really close to Lava Hot Springs.
Sep 14, 2012
Nice park, would stay there again. One problem: there was a tent site that was trashed & wasn't cleaned up after tenters left the spot, sat for the 2 days that we spent in the park with lots of garbage on the ground.
Sep 14, 2012
Being slowly updated. Hosts were great. Too much road and train noise for us.

A very pretty site. Enjoyed relaxing there and chatting with you.

We had a great time! My kids love the tie-dye t-shirts they made at the campground.

We were impressed with the write up in the directory, so decided to stay here between SLC and W Yellowstone. I would probably not make the extra stop in the future. The campground is a little shabby, and the rail road and highway drowned out the river that was right behind our site. The "trail" to town was only suitable for mountain goats. The staff was friendly, and the facilites were clean.

Campground is working to improve but still needs work. Can be a really great location and enjoyed the area
