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.

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

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.

Beautiful camp.

Really convenient to walk to town. Riverside sites are awesome. Trains and hwy traffic can be bothersome at night, but acceptable, considering other assets.

very nice host and very close to our entertainment

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

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!

Sewer was blocked for a long time. Unable to empty tanks. Finally had to leave and find another location to dump tanks. Small store for camping and RV supplies.

We arrived early when I went into the office a gal behind the counter was on the phone and totally ignored me for 40 minutes. Then I spoke with Christina who was so kind and understanding. You need to fire one and give Christina a raise.

Cody and his wife were outstanding!!! They went far above and beyond the duties of their position as owners of this campsite. They will always have my highest regard. Thank you both for your extraordinary kindness on the 4th of July and affording us the opportunity to see the most spectacular finale of any fireworks display I have seen in almost 60 years! I cannot thank them enough.

First time to lava and very impressed. Very clean camp ground with excellent shower and bathrooms. Short walk to town.

People expect a 5 star resort when your camping, come on people your camping. We've stayed here before and will be back. Staff was super nice and friendly.

Staff was wonderful, did have some problems with making reservations for multiple sites where they misspelled my name so we could not find the reservation to cancel, other than that your staff really stands out as phenominal and helpful.

Staff was outstanding, friendly and extremely helpful. We were late getting reservation. Wanted a pull through because we were towing. We had to take a back in. John was wonderful.There was another guy but didn't catch his name. Helped with unhooking and moving car tow, cleaned off the gas BBQ grill and then helped hook up the car tow when we were checking out. Great,great,great customer service

Campground was great! The trains were a bit of a shock. Overall we had a great time.

Very much enjoyed our stay. The grounds and restrooms/showers were well maintained and very clean.

We had our grandsons with us and they had a ball. Plenty of walking distance activities. The campground itself was beautiful with the river running nearby.

Best camp hosts ever

The campground itself is average for a KOA (but I do have high expectations of KOA) Positives: I really liked its proximity to the city. It is a short walk down a trail to the city.The river nearby is really nice. Negatives: The train and road are very close and very loud. It definitely has a negative effect on the atmosphere.

Jim was the best part of this campground. He is very knowledgeable and willing to help in any way he can. The campground per se is not bad (could use a little tlc) but the biggest issue is the amount of noise there. Trains going by and trucks using engine retardant breaks guarantee sleepless nights. Lots of amenities around camp but I don't know if I would stay there again.

I love staying at Lava Hot Springs KOA in Idaho. Only issue is was the WIFI provided never connected properly always showing up and then immediately down again. That was with both KOACenter and KOAWest. That needs to be fixed. But always great stay.
Jun 22, 2015
Great set up and very clean and friendly. Awsome place to stay and would come back again

Our spot was right next to the highway and the train tracks. The highway quiets down at night but the trains keep rolling. I found it funny when the night camp attendant asked us to put away our guitars which were being played quietly and a train was rolling right by at several times the decibel level.

Nice campground, close to town, lots of activities in area.

Very clean bathrooms

Very helpful at the front desk

Very pleasant spot and highly recommend

I was very disappointed that my request for two sites next to each other was not met. The front office told me that I needed to request it in my reservation which I did and it still wasn't met. I was also disappointed in the size of our site. we didn't have an extra parking space and very little grass area. Our three small children had no where to play because we had a site on the road.

you guys are doing a great job!!! loved the new showers!!!
Jun 16, 2015
Very friendly staff.

The only bad thing was that the fire pit had trash in it.
Jun 15, 2015
I was sick but the bathrooms were down for about 4 hours when we checked in. The office staff couldn't give a time the bathrooms would be fixed. I had to drive down the road to a gas station to use the restroom until the problem was fixed. The campgrounds staff were very helpful and pleasant to talk with. There was a lot of road and train noise. Bathrooms were clean though.
