Campground Reviews

I would rate Lava Hot Springs a 5 but it needs to have a fenced dog yard so the doggies can run around.

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.

The trains and road traffic were very, very noisy!!!

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!

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.

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.

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:))
Jul 11, 2015
Beautiful camp.
Jul 11, 2015
Really convenient to walk to town. Riverside sites are awesome. Trains and hwy traffic can be bothersome at night, but acceptable, considering other assets.
Jul 11, 2015
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.
Jul 11, 2015
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.

Fantastic except for the trains all night

Clean bathrooms, friendly staff, I will definitely stay there again!

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!
Jul 06, 2015
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.
Jul 06, 2015
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. :)
Jul 04, 2015
We had an excellent stay of relaxation, beautiful weather, and great hosts. 3rd stay. We'll be back.
Jul 03, 2015
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.
