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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Very friendly staff.

The only bad thing was that the fire pit had trash in it.

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.

Awesome stay, clean and welcoming. Great staff!!

It has a lot of railroad train noise and next to the main highway it is a main truck-route so it also has a lot traffic noise.
Jun 15, 2015
Expensive not very level sites, clean and tidy
Jun 15, 2015
The grounds are excellent, the hosts are fantastic and I would recommend it. However, one complaint, the highway is right next to the campground and there are busy train tracks as well. Sleep is rough in a tent or tent trailer because of this. Otherwise I love this campground and visit at least once a year

Everything was great! Friendly, lots of fun for kids and adults! We were there with 2 other families and created memories with kids and grandkids that will last a lifetime!

Check in was fast and easy. The ladies in the office were extremely friendly and made us feel right at home! Sites are good size, and you are surrounded by green mountains, fluffy green trees and green grass. The camp hosts take great care of this KOA! Bathrooms are VERY clean and grounds are very well maintained. The park is right next to the river which is great for fishing!!

Kristine was very helpful, and we will be back..

We love staying at this particular KOA, the employees and owners are fabulous and we love the fact that we can walk to town, which includes the hot springs along with rafting the river and the community pool. Thank you!

Loved the area. The train noise with the tracks just across the road add to the character, although did wake us up.
Jun 05, 2015
Nice campground close to hot springs & next to river. Personnel were friendly & helpful.

Hated the Cottonwood trees snowing non stop for our whole vacation. The dog was choking and we couldn't even go outside without it driving us crazy. All the food we cooked outside or in the fire was full of cotton. Drove us crazy, not sure if we will come back to this location. Its a nice place, but it was crazy!

This place is a 10+! Great camping along a river, big trees, clean bathrooms and showers, nice laundry room and wonderful people! Walking distance to town along a nice path by the river. Will stay here again!
