Campground Reviews

The front bathrooms need to be updated. There is no laundry room. We were camped by the office. Very inconvenient to take cloths up the hill. Our spot was very nice. But the lawn needed watering.

The facilities were wonderful and met our needs perfectly. Our host and hostess were the greatest in every way. I've already recommended it to my siblings' for their reunion.

We stay at this KOA every year. This year there were a lot of noisy people up well after midnight, I kept waiting for the camp host to make their rounds and ask people to be quiet. This year was exceptionally noisy and a little too much for my family. The camp hosts never showed. Otherwise, there were great improvements to the overall condition of the facilities over previous years.

Love the improvements. Love the garbage placement. Kept very clean and well groomed. Nice to guests.

once you pay for the site I think you should be able to put as many tents as will fit. yes paying for the extra people is fine but once our site was paid for I should be able to put up 2 tents. Also your newly remodled bathrooms are great. it would be nice to have the tolites and showers seperate. when you just need to go to the bathroom you dont want to wait for someone taking a shower.

The bathroom could have been cleaner, & the constant trains running through kept the weekend from being peaceful. However, our sites were shaded & beautiful. We also loved the short walk into Lava.

Very pleasant and helpful personnel, our check in and check out were handled quickly and efficiently. Thanks. The spots are very close together and our fire ring was against the street, so we couldn't sit all the way around it. We were in #80. We didn't use the showers or restrooms so no comment on these. Just pretty noisy as they are so close.

Deluxe cabin was clean and new. The bathroom was nice with the tub and shower. The A/C was wonderful. The fridge was nice and cold. The microwave was not clean on the inside. We didn't use it. The mattresses were a little too firm. The wifi connection was spotty throughout the camp. It was a little pricey. Suggestions: Put a flat panel TV on the TV mount that's already on the wall and hook it up.

The restrooms were too far from our campsite. By the tent area there was a dangerous drop into the river. There wasn't any fencing or anything to prevent a child from falling. If a child fell from that spot it would be fatal. This was a major concern for the entire stay. The pricing was high. We had to pay for family members to stay in our RV. Who camps with only two people? Disappointed!

The kids working at the front desk weren't very nice and would sit on their cell phones.

camp ground was nice. Very much enjoyed the rafting down the river! Best part. Needed more adult supervision behind counter. Four "very young girls" did nothing to promote campsite. stood at counter waiting for help with no one else in office. girls on facebook....if it wasn't for rafting down river would probably not go back.

Love what the new owners have done so far. It was great to have grass at the sites near the river. We enjoyed the short walk to town. I do wish the lower bathrooms were as nice as the upper. Also my husband didn't like where the sewer hook ups were located. The staff were friendly and helpful. The KOA store was well stocked. And they had complimentary coffee. We booked a trip to return next week.

People at desk are great. Lower camp spots to west are great The upper area we stayed in leave room for improvement .

Really enjoyed the river frontage site. Thanks!!

This is a nice campground beautiful trees nice river sites. However when I made my reservation I told them my length 36ft and asked if I would be able to keep my truck attached they said it would be no problem. When I arrived my site was way undersized for a 32 foot RV. I was lucky to fit in it without damaging my unit and others. KOA's mistake. The bathrooms were also not great.

Very noisy (trains & trucks) and cramped. Site extremely narrow.
Jul 24, 2013
The staff were super friendly & helpful and it was clean but the location of this campground is horrible. Trains were screeching down the hill all night so we were woken numerous times and the garbage cans were right beside us and a garbage truck came to empty them at 6:45am, waking us all up yet again. I would not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone who wants to sleep at night.

We had a great stay at your campground. Your facilities were great.
Jul 24, 2013
We were on the best sites... 14 and 15. These are perfect for our large family and right on the river. We had a great time running the river!

Really enjoyed our stay there. Very clean campground!

Le KOA avait fait une erreur avec notre réservation et disait que c'était de notre faute. Ils voulaient nous charger pour la nuit mais c'était de leur faute. Il a fallu s'obstiner durant plus d'une heure pour qu'ils acceptent de ne pas nous charger. Les égouts ont mal fonctionnés. Il y a eu un problème d'eau. Le wifi ne fonctionnait pas bien. La machine a changé n'avait plus de change.

Very nice sites for tents (I was on a motorcycle trip. Very comfortable with all services clean

We enjoyed the many campground services and improvements.The staff was very accommodating as well as helpful. Bart & Connor, Paradise, Utah

The campground was fine, our site was great. However the undisclosed proximity to the highway and railroad tracks with trains running every 15 minutes and squeeling breaks to slow down made it IMPOSSIBLE to sleep. We did not stay the second night. We will return to Lava Hot Springs but not to KOA. It makes me leery of choosing a KOA againg so I won't be using any of your properties.

We stayed for 5 nights and had perfect service and enjoyed every aspect of the RV Park and personnel. We definitely will return there as often as possible. Thank you!

The ladies restroom had T-h-r-e-e stalls, which might not have been so bad, except the door in the middle would not shut, or stay shut, hampering ALL stalls. It wouldn't have taken much to move the frame back, making the stall useable without stress. Attention to detail. Not all sites had tables, mine was one of those. Being along the shore and the view with it was delightful!
Jul 22, 2013
it was awesome everyone was great to work with.will stay there again on our next outing to lava hot springs

New favorite place to take trailer. New owners are amazing, their employees are great too. Coffee goes fast in the morning.
Jul 21, 2013
The place was packed. Very clean. Our neighbors on both sides had camp fires and the wind was such that most of the smoke went into our camper. New owners and they have done a great job.
Jul 21, 2013
The employees were very friendly and nice. The noise was really bad though. The space we were in was right on the road and quiet hours were not followed or enforced. Also I didn't feel comfortable letting the kids ride their bikes because of the traffic. People drove very fast. We would not stay there again.

I loved the tent area we were given. The staf was very kind and helpful. Very clean. Bathrooms were beautiful. Tent site 1 which I stayed at had a gorgeous set up the only thing that made me upset was the consent flow of people walking through our campsite to get to the river. It wasn't a walk way my tent was right there. Besides that it was awesome.

This is one of the best KOA (and other) RV Parks I have stayed in. Highly recommend!

Not very impressive for the price. I was told that I had two spots. But the one for my tow vehicle was always parked in by someone else. To me KOA.s are always over priced.

Not big rig capable . Sites not level premium site is a price rip-off

This was the 2nd year our company stayed there, it went a little bit smoother this year. Still had billing and communication issues when booking. We are a big party and I tried very hard to keep the lines of communication clear for them so there was not much hiccups when we got there or any surprises. But, I guess it was inevitable :)

family reunion with folks from montana, utah, idaho and even indiana. We used the shelter - so nice to have the equipment in the shelter. We had our own bbq equip we kept outside, but the gas stove and electric outlets came in handy. A very nice hidden gem of a campground. Close enough that several walked to town, too. We had a great time even with the rain.

This KOA needs lots of repairs. The bathrooms were in shambles. Broken locks on the stall doors, paper towel dispenser broken, broken toilets, broken lights, and that is just in the ladies room. The men's bathroom was just as bad (or so I was told) The wooden picnic tables were rotted and the "grass" in the sites was dead. I have never stayed in such a terrible campground. We WON'T return.

Really great campground with tons of potential. Cant wait to see what the owners do with it
