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.

The small cabin was quaint, affordable and clean. Thank you!

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.

The grounds keepers and attendants were incredibly nice and helpful. The camp was clean and well kept, better then some of the other KOA's I have been to. I would have liked to have more info upfront, ie: more pics online, a floor plan etc. I was ill prepared for my stay.

The lower section of the campground has the nicest tree cover I've ever had at a campground. New owners are great and continuing to improve the property. Loved it!!

The bathrooms were nice and big, updated, and clean. The cabin was adequate met our needs. We enjoyed the wide open recreational field. The wifi reception did not reach our cabin, but it wasn't a pressing need.

It was a great place for a quick get away from our crazy life. Close to the Hot Springs--we rode our bikes but could have easily walked and been there within minutes. River running behind the cabin was beautiful. If we visit in the heat of summer, we'd have been in the river on tubes--looked like tubing the river would have been fun--on a hot day.

We love this campground. So beautiful. We backed into the water and it was so pretty and peaceful. Yes there is a train near by but it is close to all of lava hot springs. It did not bug us at all. The gal that checked us in was great. Love this place. We will be back next year.

Recommended to us by a chance meeting of a couple who recently stayed there, and were pleased. Very nice set up of bathrooms/showers on upper lot, very clean. Would love to see a dog area fenced in. Nice hosts.

This was a great place to stop over on our way to Yellowstone. Lots of bugs.

We asked to stay near the restrooms and that was done. The restrooms are fabulous, separate private rooms with everything needed: shelving, plenty of hooks, a bench - very well done!
Oct 11, 2014
Too many trains for us, but a nice park.
Oct 09, 2014
very well kept and clean excellent showers and laundry, however it is right next to the hiway and train tracks and very noisy at night time and no cable tv

This place was great! Great location, friendly staff! We will be back!

My wife and I have had many great experiences at the Lava KOA. We are very impressed with cleanliness of the facility and the staff. Its very nice to see owners that truly take pride in their business. As long as they are in business we will continue coming.
