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

Very nice, new bathroom facility. Great, friendly service. Horrid nights sleep due to proximity to trains/highway.

Worst KOA we've ever been to. We were put in the older, 30 amp section and had numerous electric problems. Old electric at our site had no breakers, but fuses. At 5 am fuse blew. I called the office and left a message on their machine. At 9 am still no response. I went to the office and the girl on duty was unaware t

The tent sites are tiny. Our noisy neighbor's tent was about 5 feet from ours. There are "quiet hours," technically 10:30pm to 8am, but they are not enforced. Our obnoxious neighbors were loud until 1am and then again for another hour from 3am to 4am. Worst camping night ever!

The owners bent over backwards by having extra activities to make certain our stay was enjoyable. Kudos to them!

Very nice and peaceful. We'll be back!

The actual site was beautiful. We were right next to the river. Your office and main restrooms were old, and not kept in good repair. The trains at night made it hard to sleep, but we also know that is not in your control.

Came in at 12:30 am and we were still greeted with friendly service. cabins were cozy and bathrooms were clean. Will stay again on my next trip.

Very friendly staff that goes out of there way to make you feel welcome. There was a candy hunt at night for kids using flash lights and a morning craft making Ty Dye shirts for $5. It's a fun environment with a good play ground. The only down side is it's a couple blocks from town and right next to the highway and train tracks. You will hear and feel both. Overall it was a great experience.

The campground itself wasn't too bad. We appreciated the nice bathrooms and the outdoor kitchen for sure. But this particular campsite was RIGHT next to a really busy highway and train tracks. I could throw a rock to them from our campsite. ALL night there were trains and trucks. Didn't sleep too well, felt like I was getting run over all night.

We had a small group. Campground was clean and improvements were made during the year. We told Korey how much nicer it was. The only bad thing was the mountain bees/wasps. That couldn't be helped. Traps were set out. This was our 3rd time there w/more to come.

The folks that ran the place were awesome, friendly, helpful. The main complaint we had is the trains and road noise. Not much you can do about that though. The river was nice, spots a little cramped but the noise was our main problem.

Our campsite was not big enough for the trailer we had. We made reservations 2 months in advance. We put the length and that we had a slideout. In the site we got, the slideout stuck out into the next campsite. We barely had room for our tow rig. All of the KOAs that we have stayed at were much nicer then this one.

First and foremost, the backed up sewer was my biggest complaint. Second, the fact that I called ahead to ask what my charges would be because I had booked it months in advance and was told that I was already paid only to discover that I had still over $90 to pay. Third the trains probably would not have bugged if it were not for the first two issues.

Very nice bathrooms, it was nice to have a warm shower in a modern facility. I would recommend this KOA to people.

The campground is loud due to the constant train traffic, but it is green and shady. The owners are very nice and accomodating.

I have been part of the Park and Waters group for several years. You are always very friendly, helpful and courteous. The grounds are very clean and enjoyable to stay in. I am planning on returning again next year for our annual group outing. I am having to give up my motorhome so I have already reserved one of your cabins to be by the family. Thanks for everything you do.

Great hosts and plenty of fun activities!

The new washrooms are SPECTACULAR.We did feel that the 7-9 trains that passed each of our 3days was more than an occasional train. In addition, I wish that I had known that the KKs back directly onto the highway as I would have been happy to upgrade to a KL on the water. The owners of this KOA are very pleasant & take the time to interact with their guests, the highlight of this KOA location.
