Trains travel across the street, road between facility and trains. Beautiful views of mountains on frontvsnd back of the facility. River with two small waterfalls run on edge. Easy walk to town, on provided foot path. Hot Springs right in town. Enjoyed our stay, extended a day.

Too much noise. Sites too close together. Not located in a peaceful environment. Priced way too high for the type campground it is. Was the worse campground stay on our entire three-week trip.

I am so impressed on the owners commitment to the campground! Every time we go there, improvements have been made!! Congratulations owners--outstanding!

Great hosts. Two very different areas in the campsite. One very shaded and the other bright and with sufficient trees to make it green. Its got road and train traffic in the background but not offensive if you have a relatively new constructed RV. Eastern area has the best restroom facilities we have come across including the best fitted out handicapped facility.

The grounds were very nice, showers/bathrooms very clean. Staff in the morning was also very helpful. We were going to be a late arrival and they took my cc# charged it, but then did not leave the code for showers or wifi or any other info except parking pass & map. Have had better experiences at other non-koa for that aspect. if we had not paid, almost understandable but not if they run the card.

Good stay but I was in site 78 and the tree I was parked under was infested with Box Elder Bugs. In 1 hour I had hundreds all over my trailer and they stayed there the whole weekend. They need to bring an exterminator out when they are in season to remove them. The tree had 10's of thousands clinging to the branches. Some now live in Utah.Camp hosts were great to chat with.

Facility was kept very clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Pavilion area needs to have rules/expectations more clearly posted. After paying to reserve for both Sat. & Sun. there were multiple occasions where other campers came into the middle of our gathering expecting to use the kitchen facilities. The small hand-written reservation note hung up, was not enough to deter them in all cases.

there were box elder bugs 1000's of them in the trees. We couldn't eat outside. The restrooms were awesome, campgrounds clean, but get rid of the bugs

great campground, very clean, well done. of all the different camp sites we have been to this year this one is the highest priced, little surprised. hope to come back soon

This campground is adjacent to the railroad and highway. The trains and traffic run all day and night, and it is VERY disturbing. Reserve a spot right next to the river so you hear the rushing water and bring a hardside RV to muffle the train/traffic sounds. Sites are a little too compact and close together. Nevertheless, grounds are beautiful, people are nice, and bathrooms are clean.

We had a great time relaxing by the river and sitting in the hot pots , just wish it wasn't rainy so we could have floated the river and played in the pools cause they were closed , but we still had a great time , and the staff was very friendly . I would recommend this koa to anyone .

Very nice. We have stayed here off and on for years. Remarkable improvements over last 2 years. Easy walk to the hot spring pools in Lava. This has become a great weekend getaway campground for us. New shower and laundry facilities are very nice and clean.

The spaces were too close together, and the trains and traffic were extremely loud all night!

This was our first trip in new RV and we had a beautiful peaceful trip. The campground was so well kept and the owners and staff were fantastic. We would love to visit this campground again!

Great campground. Clean and very nice bathrooms, showers, pavillion, etc. It is located next to a busy, main highway that has a huge amount of Semi trucks with trailers. Just beyond the highway is a set of railroad tracks that is used to transport goods. It quiets down somewhat during the night but is still quite noisy. It makes it hard to visit or talk because its noise drowns out everything.

Great and Clean. Great Management

I really liked the facility, as well as the grounds. However, proximity to the road and railroad tracks were a real downer - lots of noise (and I am looking for peace and quiet....)

Great Place. Look forward to my next trip there. Col. N B. Mc Crary USMC Ret.

Wow!!! River view means waterfall view in Lava. Who couldn't get a great nights sleep with that sound.

We reserve every summer there. I was a little irritated that there is a fee to put down a tent after I have paid for the spot for my RV and paid for every head staying there. Decided to not do tent. There were partiers in 13&14 and the first night they were up to about 130am. Following nights KOA kept a tight ship and no issues. Overall a good time. Service was great.

I was very impress with the campground. I use to stay in the "old" not KOA campground and thought WOW have you done a lot of work. The place was clean and when it was quiet time everyone was respectful. Thanks for a great relaxing weekend.

Beautiful trees & running river, friendly staff, very nice stay.

the KOA is a beautiful campground,mature trees,river on the campground. We'll stocked store, courteous staff, we booked a spot by the river none were available on arrival. We were in tents and were camped below the highway (semis use there jake brakes all night) yes you see the trains but who wants to hear them all night Not sure if the cement barricades would stop a semi from coming over top

The wifi was so weak that it was not available most of the time. The truck and train noise was incredibly loud.

The road for local semi trucks and traffic was literally 50 feet off the campsite and the constant 100+ car trains that passed by every hour was terrible. For 70 dollars a night this was definitely not worth the stay. Sleepless nights and a loud uncomfortable stay overall.

A nice area close to town. The campground was very clean, facilities were great! Everyone was very helpful, the river was beautiful!
