We have stayed here before. This latest stay was better with the really nice bathrooms/showers Nicest I've ever seen in a KOA or otherwise. The trash cans need to be placed elsewhere. Odor issues. But otherwise really nice camp site.

Every time we stay at Lava Hot Springs we love it. Park is always clean. We also love all the trains that pass by our space.

VERY EXPENSIVE. Felt a little like a Nazi camp with constant surveillance. I paid for the whole stay & upon my sisters arrival someone was at the camp site immediately wanting more money for a parking pass, which we weren't going to need. There were charges for EVERYTHING. nearly $250 bucks for 2 tents and 4 adults, 1 child, 3 nights. I will NEVER stay at KOA again!

The staff was very friendly. I like how employees went around the camp constantly to make sure everything was okay, made me feel secure about leaving our camp equipment out and not having to worry about my things being stolen. I would definitely be back to this campground.

Made reservation, person told us no problem to have 4-5 tents onsite. Very very tight fit. Worked almost didn't let our whole party in. Wasn't nice. Blamed me for it instead of person doing reservations. Hate trains. Loved the bathrooms and conveniences. We will be staying somewhere else for future lava visits.

The place is great. Really close to the Lava Hot Springs facilities and to the river. You can leave the motorhome and go to town on foot, which is great! We loved the site. The only inconvenient is that the playground area, and laundry are at the other side, so a lot of walking inside the campground to go back and forth with the clothes.

The people at facility were great. Bathrooms clean. The location was horrible. They put us on a tiny strip of grass (barely big enough for a tent). It was literally right next to the freeway and the train tracks.

We stayed for 2 nights. Andie the owner was very sweet and accommodating. Also John and Isaac were very kind and helpful. Will stay there again

We were surrounded by 7 groups of friends who ran through our campsite. One of the men had a machete he used to trim fire wood and another kept running through our campsite with a wooden gun shooting rubber bands over my young granddaughters heads. I complained to the people that ran thekoa camp. The day wwe checked out the idiots were still running through our campsite. Never stay there again.

Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The east side restrooms are also very nice.

Wow great facility. We will be using KOA every year now. Thanks for a wonderful trip

Facility was nice. Woman at the front desk was not pleasant to deal with. Poor communication when making reservation. Became rude and obstinant when I asked her to verify the reservation details. I will not work with her again if I stay here
Jul 20, 2015
It was great other than that train the bathrooms where wonderful

I would rate Lava Hot Springs a 5 but it needs to have a fenced dog yard so the doggies can run around.
Jul 17, 2015
Thought that the price for the site was way too expensive, even with 20$ off. The people in the next SUPER site were way too many and some slept in their cars. They had about 5 dogs and when we hooked up, there was Chihuaua poop all in the back of our site! Between the late night neighbors, the train and the barking dogs we did get some sleep and left early, sorry to wake the guy in the car!

What impressed our family most was the kind helpful staff. Then we watched as a camper would leave immediately their were employees cleaning the fire pits, grounds and cabins.
Jul 16, 2015
The trains and road traffic were very, very noisy!!!
Jul 16, 2015
Much nicer than 5 years ago. Need to move the sewer connection to make it more convenient for trailers. the spot I was in had a sewer connection over 20 feet from my connection!
Jul 15, 2015
Although the trains did not stop me from sleeping (motorhome with closed windows) they were very loud. We bought tube time at the office bc it was cheaper they said. Only choice 5 or 10 hrs. At location it was possible per hour and that would have been way cheaper for us. Not fair to not mention that. Close to pool, hot springs and very nice showers. Old playground.
Jul 15, 2015
The campground was clean and shady the staff was friendly and liked the clean private showers.

We pulled in late and left early but the grounds looked nice and was quiet.

This is our second time staying here and we love this koa! We go to Lava annually and have stayed at another campsite with a lot to be desired. The koa sites are well kept and large. The staff are friendly and very professional.
Jul 13, 2015
We've been camping here for the last 4 years and we love it!! Thanks!

BBQ grill had so much grease we were unable to use it since it started on fire when lit.

It was great place to stay... Staff was extremely helpful. We will definitely go back and stay with you again!
Jul 13, 2015
Sorry, but extremely expensive $70 night, right across the road from a train track that literally runs every hour all night, and spots are packed in very close together. No one is around to enforce quiet hours, either. Staff was courteous and it is clean. We normally love KOA....just not crazy about this one.
Jul 12, 2015
Fantastic campground, friendly staff and lovely location:))
Jul 11, 2015
Beautiful camp.
Jul 11, 2015
Really convenient to walk to town. Riverside sites are awesome. Trains and hwy traffic can be bothersome at night, but acceptable, considering other assets.
Jul 11, 2015
very nice host and very close to our entertainment
Jul 11, 2015
We loved your KOA. The only thing we would do different next time is choose a "river" site...We were in 27 and the road was pretty noisy!! Very grassy..wonderful people
Jul 10, 2015
Fantastic except for the trains all night
Jul 07, 2015
Awesome time, thanks for having us. Martha

Clean bathrooms, friendly staff, I will definitely stay there again!

It was nice to know that the reservation we made last year still stood; thanks to new owners?/management for doing such a good job! This is now the KOA style we know. The camp looked great, with some nice improvements. We had a great time, and look forward to seeing you next year!
