Campground Reviews

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.

We pulled in late and left early but the grounds looked nice and was quiet.

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.

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.

It was great place to stay... Staff was extremely helpful. We will definitely go back and stay with you again!

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.

There are loud trains that drive by often. Also 30 seconds after I got there I was yelled for bringing a side by side and joy riding. I had not even taken it off the trailer yet.

Fantastic campground, friendly staff and lovely location:))

Beautiful camp.

Really convenient to walk to town. Riverside sites are awesome. Trains and hwy traffic can be bothersome at night, but acceptable, considering other assets.

Our cabin was clean and very efficient. We really liked the deck in the back that over looked the river. Fun to hear the rush of water. We would definitely stay there again.

very nice host and very close to our entertainment

We loved your KOA. The only thing we would do different next time is choose a "river" site...We were in 27 and the road was pretty noisy!! Very grassy..wonderful people

Walked into bugs galore in main light & cabin & a non working AC- till my fiance whose an electrician got it working an hour later-although staff was friendly & common area was clean.

Friendly staff. Beautiful new cabins.

Such friendly people. The campground is noisy with traffic and trains. But the staff is so great it makes the noise tolerable. Can't wait to come back.

It was nice to know that the reservation we made last year still stood; thanks to new owners?/management for doing such a good job! This is now the KOA style we know. The camp looked great, with some nice improvements. We had a great time, and look forward to seeing you next year!

The staff is amazing. Always so helpful. I look forward to coming up every year. Thanks!

Sewer was blocked for a long time. Unable to empty tanks. Finally had to leave and find another location to dump tanks. Small store for camping and RV supplies.

We arrived early when I went into the office a gal behind the counter was on the phone and totally ignored me for 40 minutes. Then I spoke with Christina who was so kind and understanding. You need to fire one and give Christina a raise.

Cody and his wife were outstanding!!! They went far above and beyond the duties of their position as owners of this campsite. They will always have my highest regard. Thank you both for your extraordinary kindness on the 4th of July and affording us the opportunity to see the most spectacular finale of any fireworks display I have seen in almost 60 years! I cannot thank them enough.

We come every year. Always friendly workers. Bathrooms are clean and big. Lots of people and sort coming through so they do a good job. The only negative is there isn't a lot for the kids to do right in the camp. I'd recommend one of the jump pads. :)

We had an excellent stay of relaxation, beautiful weather, and great hosts. 3rd stay. We'll be back.

Only problem we had was poor firewood, I bought 2 bundles from the KOA and had trouble getting any of that wood to burn, upsetting.
Jul 03, 2015
First time to lava and very impressed. Very clean camp ground with excellent shower and bathrooms. Short walk to town.

People expect a 5 star resort when your camping, come on people your camping. We've stayed here before and will be back. Staff was super nice and friendly.

The cabin was clean, the campground was clean, and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The only "bummer" was paying extra for a parking space when there was clearly enough room for two cars. That seemed completely ridiculous.

Staff was wonderful, did have some problems with making reservations for multiple sites where they misspelled my name so we could not find the reservation to cancel, other than that your staff really stands out as phenominal and helpful.

We stayed at the new Kabins with linens provided etc. Everything was great although stove was a hot plate and it did not include linens for the futon which we did not know beforehand otherwise we would have brought some. We loved the fire feature on the deck and the view of the river was also great.

Staff was outstanding, friendly and extremely helpful. We were late getting reservation. Wanted a pull through because we were towing. We had to take a back in. John was wonderful.There was another guy but didn't catch his name. Helped with unhooking and moving car tow, cleaned off the gas BBQ grill and then helped hook up the car tow when we were checking out. Great,great,great customer service

Beautiful setting, great friendly and helpful staff, a cabin I'd rate as "a perfect 10." A wonderful place to spend 4 days with my grandchildren.

Staff was very friendly and helpful.

It was advertised as sleeping for 6. Queen bed, double bed, and a sofa sleeper , however there was no bedding for the sofa sleeper and when we asked for it there was none available. 2 people in our party had to sleep with no pillows or blankets. For $230 per night we should of at least received enough bedding to sleep 6 as advertised.

hard parking small spots
