very helpful friendly staff. Campground very clean.

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

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.

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.

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!

Stayed down on the "old" end of the KOA on the river, one of the most pretty settings we've ever been in at a KOA. Trees, GRASS, nice and helpful staff. SEE YOU AGAIN!

Camp ground was clean and the staff was very friendly & helpful. Because of location, there is truck traffic and train traffic nearby. It didn't disturb us, but may disturb others.

We had an awesome stay here. Very nice and friendly staff. Used the community bbq grill both nights whiched saved us the hastle of using charcoal. Very nice and clean restroom and shower facilities. We will definitely be staying here again.

We were at the "Supersight" which was supposed to handle or 2 tents and 1 camper.There was no room to put more than 1 tent. We had to set one of them up on the gravel. The sight was nice but very misleading. My nieces and nephews reserved sight in the overflow tenting area and were told they would not be disappointed and that there was shade, not a tree anywhere.

Maneuvering our camp trailer was a little tight in the area we were camping in.
Aug 11, 2014
Not enough showers and bath rooms and a number of times found no toilet paper or paper towels. Staff was great and the children activities done well.
Aug 11, 2014
When we arrived there was someone there to assist us in parking out of the way while we registered. After we registered someone lead us to our camp spot. The camp ground was clean and really beautiful with all the trees. Except for the train it was quiet. Close enough to town to walk. I would recommend to friends and family.

great location and staff.
Aug 10, 2014
THe area was clean and well kept the only distraction was the endless stream of noisy trains but I enjoyed counting the cars.
Aug 10, 2014
We only were there for the evening and one night but in the short stay I thought the campground was very clea organized and well managed. Really nice facilities especially the showers. Everything was in good working condition and much of the amenities seemed new. It is a little noisy there next to a road and a fairly active railroad track. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend.
