The campground was fine, our site was great. However the undisclosed proximity to the highway and railroad tracks with trains running every 15 minutes and squeeling breaks to slow down made it IMPOSSIBLE to sleep. We did not stay the second night. We will return to Lava Hot Springs but not to KOA. It makes me leery of choosing a KOA againg so I won't be using any of your properties.

We stayed for 5 nights and had perfect service and enjoyed every aspect of the RV Park and personnel. We definitely will return there as often as possible. Thank you!

The ladies restroom had T-h-r-e-e stalls, which might not have been so bad, except the door in the middle would not shut, or stay shut, hampering ALL stalls. It wouldn't have taken much to move the frame back, making the stall useable without stress. Attention to detail. Not all sites had tables, mine was one of those. Being along the shore and the view with it was delightful!

New favorite place to take trailer. New owners are amazing, their employees are great too. Coffee goes fast in the morning.

The place was packed. Very clean. Our neighbors on both sides had camp fires and the wind was such that most of the smoke went into our camper. New owners and they have done a great job.

The employees were very friendly and nice. The noise was really bad though. The space we were in was right on the road and quiet hours were not followed or enforced. Also I didn't feel comfortable letting the kids ride their bikes because of the traffic. People drove very fast. We would not stay there again.

Friendly and helpful kamp host. Nice setting with many shade trees and a slow flowing river alongside. Would gladly recommend and return.

This is one of the best KOA (and other) RV Parks I have stayed in. Highly recommend!

Not very impressive for the price. I was told that I had two spots. But the one for my tow vehicle was always parked in by someone else. To me KOA.s are always over priced.

family reunion with folks from montana, utah, idaho and even indiana. We used the shelter - so nice to have the equipment in the shelter. We had our own bbq equip we kept outside, but the gas stove and electric outlets came in handy. A very nice hidden gem of a campground. Close enough that several walked to town, too. We had a great time even with the rain.

This KOA needs lots of repairs. The bathrooms were in shambles. Broken locks on the stall doors, paper towel dispenser broken, broken toilets, broken lights, and that is just in the ladies room. The men's bathroom was just as bad (or so I was told) The wooden picnic tables were rotted and the "grass" in the sites was dead. I have never stayed in such a terrible campground. We WON'T return.

Really great campground with tons of potential. Cant wait to see what the owners do with it

We did not care for the particular site we received but overall this campground is really good. The sites along the highway can be noisy as the train is close in addition to the traffic.

We love this area and found the new owners of this facility the most friendly and hard working hosts we have ever met. We wish them great success in their new endeavor.

Although the website said they had a pool and didn't there was plenty to do at the river and within walking distance to the park we lived our stay and Andi and Kody and their staff were awesome hosts!

Nice to be on the river. Newer bathrooms and laundry rooms at upper site. Great upgrades occurring. Nice to be close (walking distance) to the hot springs.

They are making an attempt to "improve" the campground, but it's not there yet...The main bathrooms were far from great. It's tight when all of the spaces are full. Let's face it the biggest attraction is the river and the pool and most people just sleep there and are gone during the day. Would be nice if it had more activities at the campground besides those the city has to offer.

Many nice shaded sites near river. A bit tight for larger units though. Friendly new owners making improvements including grass between sites.

Fun!

Reservation was screwed up, they wanted to put us in a site that you could barely get a tent on let alone an 23' camping trailer. We had to go up the road for one night. Then we were squeezed into a smaller site right below the highway. We had sap from the trees all over our RV and truck

We enjoyed our stay this past week, probably the 18th year we've been at this campground. We appreciate all the hosts did to make our stay good, and look forward to returning next year! Hot year makes for little lawn, so can't complain about our campsite - our lawn at home is struggling with the heat and lack of rain too.

The new owners have gone overboard to make our stay wonderful. The campground looks amazing with new electrical hooks ups and grassy areas. We were having trouble with the electrical hook up and the owner called in he electrician to make sure our stay was perfect. We have stay there tons of time before and with the last owner we were alittle scared!! But I can say we will be back lot more times

localisé le long de la route et du chemin de fer, le caractère bucolique de ce KOA est complètement gaché. accueil peu chaleureux.

The new owners are great and very helpful. It was hot and we were in #84 and the voltage was low (105v) which caused the air conditioners to not work well. The sites in this area seemed to be too close together and the fire pits were not really placed right.
Jul 02, 2013
We will be back!

Had a nice time. KOA has had many improvements, very nice. Looking forward to staying again, hope to go back by the end of September.

This was a great campground! Very friendly people. The only things I didn't like were being next to the railroad tracks and the highway.

I believe that guests should be told it is very rude to walk through other guests camp sites. They pay for one site that does not give them free reign to tromp through other sites especially at meal time.

Although I can appreciate the improvements in progress at Lava Hot Springs, construction should have stopped much earlier in the evening. It was 10:30 before things started quieting down. We would not have stayed had we known those were the circumstances.
