The new owners are great and very helpful. It was hot and we were in #84 and the voltage was low (105v) which caused the air conditioners to not work well. The sites in this area seemed to be too close together and the fire pits were not really placed right.

We will be back!

This was a great campground! Very friendly people. The only things I didn't like were being next to the railroad tracks and the highway.

I believe that guests should be told it is very rude to walk through other guests camp sites. They pay for one site that does not give them free reign to tromp through other sites especially at meal time.

This is one of the best KOAs anywhere, especially beautiful restrooms and showers! We used a "group" campsite, and it would be helpful to be able to arrange for power at such a site since there are almost always needs for a power hookup.

The cabin was very nice. Loved that it had a bathroom in it. It was a little pricy but acceptable. The atmosphere was nice. The people were very nice and helpful. Loved the views. The bed was surprisingly comfortable. Will definitely return.

Although I can appreciate the improvements in progress at Lava Hot Springs, construction should have stopped much earlier in the evening. It was 10:30 before things started quieting down. We would not have stayed had we known those were the circumstances.

A young couple just took it over and are updating very nicely. Shower rooms are beautiful, and sites are being updated. Spots down by the river are really nice.

Its not a kid friendly campground. Need more kid things. Also there is a train that runs right by the campground every hour. Other than that it was ok.

I loved the new grass and space! It was nice being right next to the river.

Friendly staff and very nice showers / restrooms. The only downfall are the dusty roadways and the speeding vehicles that create dust. It would be very nice to see the roads paved someday. Overall a really nice place to stay and we look forward to our return next June.

This kampground has come a long way since the first time we stayed there. It's well on the way to becoming one of the very best.

Well we arrived and checked in we were assigned a spot but someone already had it. We took the next one and confirmed it with the office all was good. The next morning we had to move cuz this site was reserved. The staff at Lava KOA were very disorganized and I was very disappointed!! Last year was great staying there!!

We've been coming to Lava Hot Springs for over 20 years and have always stayed at this campground (formerly Cottonwood). We love the improvements KOA is making.

The staff was helpful and pleasent. The grounds are clean and bathrooms wonderful, modern & clean. We enjoyed the park and very close to town. We will recommend KOA Lava Hot Springs to others

We had a little bit of confusion regarding our tent reservation, but the staff and owner were very good to make the necessary adjustments to clear up the whole situation. We were very happy with our stay. Thanks for the extra effort and turning it into a positive experience. The true measure of a business is how they react when confronted with adversity and they shined.

We enjoyed our spot and appreciated how friendly the staff was, and how willing they are to help with anything, love the upgrades they are working on!

Aside from the noise of the trains and the highway traffic, which the park can't control, the stay was great!
Jun 18, 2013
Staff was fantastic. But Very, Very noisy. between the high way and the periodic fright trains we did not do any sleeping. Also disappointed that everything along the riverbank was torn up and under construction.

Very nice area, walk to hot springs and town. Sites should be leveled for the price being charged.

We stayed in the cabins. They are about 15 feet from a busy highway with an active train track on the other side. VERY NOISY!!! Otherwise a nice place...

Staff was extremely friendly. Great campgound and great location. Our cabin was clean and very cozy!

The stay would have been better had we been warned about the construction prior. My friend couldn't sleep with the beeping on the cat.. I asked about checking out at 1pm instead of the noon check out, there was no one waiting for the cabin said the lady.I was charged $ 8.41 MORE on my card due to checking out at 12:45pm.After spending $200.00 for the 2 day stay and purchases in store...

Great new owners,very helpful, efficient and friendly

So comfortable and quiet. They were wonderful hosts!
Jun 16, 2013
Staff was very accommodating and helpful. Since this campground was only taken over in the last two months, there appear some things need to be worked out, but overall, we would stay here again. This will be a 5-star KOA in no time!

new people didn't know the difference between,50 amp & 30 amp. Yes they tried hard. Just didn't know. need some training.!

Close to HOT SPRINGS and bathrooms are excellent. Individual 3/4 bathrooms,clean and updated-excellent! Friendly and helpful owners.

All facilities were quite nice. However, train noise was often and noisy as were some campers who did not observe quiet hours. Also, lots of nearby highway noise.
Jun 13, 2013
Friendly staff. But between the trains and the highway noise it was less than restfull.

Great campsite located close to the hot springs and river tubing. There is some road/railroad noise but not that noticeable. I would definitely stay there again and recommend this site to my friends and family.
