Showers and bathrooms clean and neat. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice assortment of items in the shop. Only complaint is the sites were a bit to small for me. Also need a bigger fire pit. Not enough of a reason to keep me from going back.

clean sites and showers, however shower rooms could use a stool or bench to set on while dressing and faster clean up after use so the next person don't have to be in someone elses mess

The owners Kody and Andi have done so much work to improve the campground and facilities. We look forward to our visits every year.

I booked a cabin over the phone. The person taking the reservation did not tell me the cabin did not come supplied with linens or towels. The closest place to purchase these items was 60 miles away. So several hours later and several hundred dollars poorer we returned to the cabin only to discover the hot water heater was not working. No one showed up to fix it until noon the next day.

Great place to stay!

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The new owners have made lots of great improvements. The WiFi was pretty sketchy, and wouldn't stay connected. Overall, we had a really nice stay and will be back again!

Lots of trains come through during the night. They don't blow their horns but they are still loud. The river is beautiful and the kids had fun exploring it.

We love srating at this koa! This was our 3rd stay. The first two times we tented it and this last time we rented a small cabin. They are clean and perfect for 2 or even a small family. I loved that there were fire pits for each cabin and a picnic table. The cabins have heat and ac which is so great. The owners are always so friendly and helpful! We will stay here every time we go to Lava!

Only stayed one night. Too close to railroad. Very noisy all night!

This is a very nice camp ground and the staff was excellent, unfortunately the cost of 59.00$ per night is ridiculous for a camp ground of any sort and one without a pool etc. we had been travelling for 2.5 months and this was the most we paid for a campground the entire time and we were in some beautiful resorts!!!

Very accommodating and friendly. Clean and improvements look to be a positive enhancement to this wonderful setting. We will be back!!

With the railroad and freeway being so close, it did interrupt sleeping a bit. We slept right by the river though, and that helped drown out the noise. The staff was great, and this is a wonderful place to stay to be close to the hot pools!

We love the location, alongside the beautiful Portneuf River, and a short walk from the Hot Springs!

The place is beautiful. We loved the cabin very nice. And the employees were very nice. I would only say for the money I paid I would say I would be nice not to have to bring toilet paper and linens for the beds.

We had some minor problems with our accommodations however the camp hosts bent over backwards to make things right. Based on the customer service I would definitely go back.

At $105, this was way over priced! At this price we will not be back. It's bunk beds are tiny (way smaller than standard) and too small for an adult to sleep. The rooms in town offer way more for less.
Mar 04, 2015
The small cabin was quaint, affordable and clean. Thank you!
Mar 03, 2015
Gorgeous grounds. I can't wait to come during the summer. Thank you.

Long walk to bathroom from cabin which was not explained to me when I called to reserve.
Feb 25, 2015

We were pleasantly surprised to find this KOA open in February especially since the website said it was closed. This place was clean and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I plan on staying here again.

This KOA is right next to the HWY and train track. With the combo of the vehicles and the train, there was no quiet time. The bed felt like it was going to fall apart at any time. It wobbled and shifted with every move and was very uncomfortable. My wife and I got very little sleep and will not be going back. Make your reservations early and stay at a hotel.


Thank you for bringing the bed issue to our attention. This will get fixed immediately; unfortunately the town of Lava Hot Springs was built along the transportation lines of railway and highway, and likewise we wish it could be quieter. We have earplugs available for any guest who needs them.

The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was due to the location of the cabins right by the highway so you have to listen to the traffic all night. Other then that the cabin was wonderful and the staff was very helpful and wonderful to work with. Thank you

End of season camping in a very well kept park. You can tell a lot of care goes into making this park special. We were even able to get some pictures of a cougar in a tree at the park. Very special.
