Our entire stay was fantastic. The only problem we had while there was that we had brought a street legal side by side with us and had specifically asked what the rules for having it in the campground with us. At one point my husband rode it down to our flat bed trailer we had parked at the other end of the campground. He then went to the store to hear employees talking about him and his riding.

Beautiful campground. Excellent location. Only drawback is the train going by.

Great tome. Very friendly managers.

Great stay.

Our stay was great. Highway noise and train noise were minor issues
Jun 15, 2016
Not one word was mentioned about the train that passes through at a minimum of 5 times a night.

very friendly staff, clean and low key!!

The campground and staff are wonderful! The train is exhausting. We will bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones for sure next time. I would recommend soap dispensers in the showers. Otherwise it was amazing!


Great idea. We will try to implement soap dispensers within the very near future.

We had a great time. the only draw back was how close the campground is to the highway and the trains
Jun 13, 2016
Trains were a little noisy, but that can't really be avoided anywhere in Lava Hot Springs. Grounds were very nice and well kept. Bathrooms were really clean and nice.

Neat location, could use new picnic tables

Nice place, upper area roads were a bit dusty.

Great to be able to walk a very short distance to "town", to enjoy the Olympic size pool with slides, hot springs, river tubing, restaurants, etc. The washrooms and showers were clean, and the staff friendly and helpful. Would have given it 5 stars if it were further from the highway and railway, but the noise was tolerable, and improved with ear plugs.

The KOA and it service was great. There is a train that passes by about once every hour,and is very loud even in a trailer. The train was the only down side to this campground.

Very clean and well thought out park. Friendly staff. Love all the shade trees!

Great location, beautiful campsite, extremely clean!

The employees are super nice. Camp sites nice and clean with a short walk to downtown.

Loved our stay, so nice with the river to listen to at night. Would have been even better with an additional bathroom building at the other end of the campground for women/children walking in the dark at night.

The checkin attendants were not accommodating at all. We got there early, not aware of the 3 pm checkin. They stated that they would try to clean the camp spot and let us in early. We called back and they said they had no intention of cleaning our site early. We had a small baby that needed to nap. They also said all KOAs had a checkin of 3 pm, which is not true at all. The campsite was nice

Extremely nice people and one of the nicer scenery we've had this trip. didn't mind the trains or traffic noise but hated the fact the ground shook when they went by. Loved the river but you need a fenced dog area away from the highway.
Jun 07, 2016
Beautiful location right on the river.
Jun 07, 2016
Good place to stop for a couple of days for rest and enjoy the hot springs. Great
Jun 06, 2016
Staff was great! Campground was clean and looked after. Only negative is the location next to the highway and railroad track.
Jun 06, 2016
Too close to the highway and train tracks. Other than the noise from them it was great.
Jun 06, 2016
We had a great weekend stay at the Lava Hot Springs KOA. My granddaughter loved the crafts. We will definitely return. See you next trip.
Jun 06, 2016
Just awesome. Well kept, quiet, shady, nice facilities, close to everything.

Great place

Good location near Thai restaurant and hot springs.

One of the best KOA's I've ever stayed at. Campground is walking distance to the Hot Springs and next to the Portneuf River. The bathrooms/showers for the RV side were updated/extremely clean. The staff was very helpful and were able to give us a lot of useful information about where to eat and go in town. Our campsite was spacious and well kept. Would definitely stay here again.
Jun 02, 2016
we enjoyed our same
Jun 01, 2016
Worst KOA I have ever seen! I was scheduled to stay two nights and only stayed one! Lost money! I will not only not recommend this KOA! I will discourage everyone I know from staying there. Really a KOA next to main line train tracks I thought you guys had higher standards then that! Frankly I wouldn't stay there if I was paid.;

Nice campground. It was cotton season so it was snowing cotton. Train is super loud. Love being by the river and walking distance to town. They had a hard time accommodating our request to be by friends but finally did.
Jun 01, 2016
The service people were excellent. I couldn't ask for better service from KOA. However, we couldn't get wifi. I feel we paid for it but kept getting excuses as there were so many people in the camp. I don't think wifi should be a selling point if it's not available to everyone.

We love staying at this KOA. The people who run it are very nice and amazing. They are always very willing to help with everything we need. It is always very clean and comfortable. Thanks goes out to them! One suggestion, it would be helpful if the upper restrooms had a chair or something to sit on, besides the toilet.
May 31, 2016
It was okay. Campground was nice. Not as well groomed as others, staff was nice, but not overly helpful. Cotton from cottonwood trees was annoying. I mean, it was like it was snowing! Overall, it was just okay. Nothing special.
May 31, 2016
Bathrooms were very clean.
May 31, 2016
Peggy especially was very helpful, giving us a fantastic view spot, and then a refund when we became ill and had to depart early.
May 31, 2016
It was a great weekend. restrooms were clean and the people were nice.
May 31, 2016
The lower area is great
May 31, 2016
Friendly staff, great bathrooms, location close to town!
May 27, 2016
Very nice, clean, great location. Staff was helpful.
May 25, 2016
Even though it rained most of our stay we made the best of it and had a great time. Staff was great.
May 25, 2016
I had a beautiful spot right on the river. It was very peaceful, although there are train tracks nearby. I would definitely stay there again.
May 24, 2016
Best place to stay at Lava Hot Springs. Close to town but far enough away for quiet nights.
May 23, 2016
Great location great access to the hotsprings and very qquiet and we'll taken care of. We will be back for sure. GREAT PLACE. Ron Nelson
May 22, 2016
all ways have a great time there.
May 20, 2016
A little close to the highway and train...but an easy walk to the Hot Springs
May 19, 2016
We specifically needed ADA bathrooms, and though the bathrooms were GREAT, there was a gravel hill to push the wheelchair up to access those bathrooms. Otherwise, the facility was good! Helpful staff!
May 17, 2016
Everything was good until some campers staying in the cabins decided to party "loud" until 2am with no one (night person who checks car tags) didn't do anything about it and when we asked them if they could keep it down decided they wouldn't.
