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.

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.

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.

Not a lot for comparison, first KOA stay. Tiffany, hostess was great. Not a lot of shade on my side, but growing. Thank You.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Being slowly updated. Hosts were great. Too much road and train noise for us.

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.

We loved it last year and this year and are coming back next year. Only concern is the time people spend in the showers. 45 minutes for some, maybe consider a time limit to be posted. ???

We love this campground, especially staying by the river. However, the old bathrooms need up-dating. The doors to the restrooms don't stay shut and only one of the paper towel dispensers works. Other than that, the owners are SUPER nice and helpful!

Cory and Tiffany are the only reason we travel 1200 miles once ah year to stay there they make it feel young and that's cool....see u next year
Sep 05, 2012
Every year for the past 5 we have went to Lava. Cory & his staff was great!!!
Sep 05, 2012
We had a wonderful stay, Cory and Tiffany are the best. They always welcome us with open arms. We will be back with them next year.

As soon as we pulled into the camp, we were approached by the host and told they were doing a flashlight candy hunt in 5 minutes. My grandson loved it! The next morning, they Tye Dyed shirts at the camp. We had a riot here! Thanks to the extra efforts from the Camp Hosts. Thank You!

Staff was very nice and did a good job. Campsites are very small. Trains are too loud as were the hill billies honking thier horns and reving the engines on their trucks all hours of the day and night. Maybe work with the city and put up a sound wall, or put some more chlorine in the gene pool and eradicate the hill billies.

the stay was good great host very accommodating

The guy helped us late at night. He talked to our neighbors for being loud and cleaned up their dog poop when they left. Overall nice person! We had the best spot rivers on both sides

Staff was unhelpful and not friendly. Price was high for lack of amenities such as breakfast.

We hosted our family reunion at the Lava Hot Springs KOA this summer and we absolutely LOVED the campground and the staff and the amenities! Everyone was so relaxed and friendly, the location was absolutely perfect, the restrooms and showers AMAZING, I could go on and on but hesitate to as it will be giving away our 'secret' of how great this KOA was and others will want to stay there! FAB place!

VERY disappointed in the KOA in Lava. We made our reservations over a month in advance. When we got there, it was getting dark and there was a nearly capacity occupation at the campground- including the spot they'd assigned to us. There was a trailer with 4wheelers on it, and the owners were nowhere to be found. The young lady that came to "help" us was Aspen, and she tried to help- put us in anot

Its been about two years since staying there. I was impressed with your employee's desire to make sure each guest was taken care of. You have a great TEAM working with you and Cory, you make a great leader. Thanks for making the stay such a fun time. Looking forward to another stay in the future. Mark

Very noisy location.
Aug 27, 2012
Run down. Bad unmarked (unnecessary) speed bumps. Dump station in poor location. Noisy with trains every 30 min or so. Computer system not working, did not get receipt there because of that. No escort to site. Did not use GREAT....
Aug 27, 2012
This was our first time to a KOA. We weren't sure about it when we first came in because their was so many campers. But we loved it! The owner Cory was wonderful! He made sure that we were happy with our spot! Even if he was busy! The new bathrooms were beautiful! 1st KOA turned out to be a great weekend!

Lava hot springs is a nice location ,but this KOA really needs a face lift. It is abit dated and most if not all sites with water/ Power only are 20 amp fused not even breakered. staff is good . Trains all nite long. Its on a Union Pacific Main line. Would go to Lava Hot Springs again but not at this KOA
