The remote bathhouse was excellent in the layout and was very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites were a little close together where our slide out did encroach on the picnic table of our neighbor but did not affect us.The water and electric hookups were located on the opposite side from normal to where our water hose and power cable had to be run under our trailer.

It was perfect. I wish I could have stayed a week.

The front bathrooms need to be updated. There is no laundry room. We were camped by the office. Very inconvenient to take cloths up the hill. Our spot was very nice. But the lawn needed watering.

The facilities were wonderful and met our needs perfectly. Our host and hostess were the greatest in every way. I've already recommended it to my siblings' for their reunion.

We stay at this KOA every year. This year there were a lot of noisy people up well after midnight, I kept waiting for the camp host to make their rounds and ask people to be quiet. This year was exceptionally noisy and a little too much for my family. The camp hosts never showed. Otherwise, there were great improvements to the overall condition of the facilities over previous years.

Love the improvements. Love the garbage placement. Kept very clean and well groomed. Nice to guests.

The bathroom could have been cleaner, & the constant trains running through kept the weekend from being peaceful. However, our sites were shaded & beautiful. We also loved the short walk into Lava.

Very pleasant and helpful personnel, our check in and check out were handled quickly and efficiently. Thanks. The spots are very close together and our fire ring was against the street, so we couldn't sit all the way around it. We were in #80. We didn't use the showers or restrooms so no comment on these. Just pretty noisy as they are so close.

The restrooms were too far from our campsite. By the tent area there was a dangerous drop into the river. There wasn't any fencing or anything to prevent a child from falling. If a child fell from that spot it would be fatal. This was a major concern for the entire stay. The pricing was high. We had to pay for family members to stay in our RV. Who camps with only two people? Disappointed!

camp ground was nice. Very much enjoyed the rafting down the river! Best part. Needed more adult supervision behind counter. Four "very young girls" did nothing to promote campsite. stood at counter waiting for help with no one else in office. girls on facebook....if it wasn't for rafting down river would probably not go back.

Love what the new owners have done so far. It was great to have grass at the sites near the river. We enjoyed the short walk to town. I do wish the lower bathrooms were as nice as the upper. Also my husband didn't like where the sewer hook ups were located. The staff were friendly and helpful. The KOA store was well stocked. And they had complimentary coffee. We booked a trip to return next week.

People at desk are great. Lower camp spots to west are great The upper area we stayed in leave room for improvement .

Really enjoyed the river frontage site. Thanks!!

This is a nice campground beautiful trees nice river sites. However when I made my reservation I told them my length 36ft and asked if I would be able to keep my truck attached they said it would be no problem. When I arrived my site was way undersized for a 32 foot RV. I was lucky to fit in it without damaging my unit and others. KOA's mistake. The bathrooms were also not great.

Very noisy (trains & trucks) and cramped. Site extremely narrow.
Jul 24, 2013
The staff were super friendly & helpful and it was clean but the location of this campground is horrible. Trains were screeching down the hill all night so we were woken numerous times and the garbage cans were right beside us and a garbage truck came to empty them at 6:45am, waking us all up yet again. I would not stay here again nor recommend it to anyone who wants to sleep at night.

We had a great stay at your campground. Your facilities were great.
Jul 24, 2013
We were on the best sites... 14 and 15. These are perfect for our large family and right on the river. We had a great time running the river!
Jul 24, 2013
Really enjoyed our stay there. Very clean campground!

Le KOA avait fait une erreur avec notre réservation et disait que c'était de notre faute. Ils voulaient nous charger pour la nuit mais c'était de leur faute. Il a fallu s'obstiner durant plus d'une heure pour qu'ils acceptent de ne pas nous charger. Les égouts ont mal fonctionnés. Il y a eu un problème d'eau. Le wifi ne fonctionnait pas bien. La machine a changé n'avait plus de change.

We enjoyed the many campground services and improvements.The staff was very accommodating as well as helpful. Bart & Connor, Paradise, Utah

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.
Jul 22, 2013
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!
Jul 22, 2013
it was awesome everyone was great to work with.will stay there again on our next outing to lava hot springs

New favorite place to take trailer. New owners are amazing, their employees are great too. Coffee goes fast in the morning.
Jul 21, 2013
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.
Jul 21, 2013
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!
Jul 16, 2013
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.

Not big rig capable . Sites not level premium site is a price rip-off

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.
Jul 15, 2013
Really great campground with tons of potential. Cant wait to see what the owners do with it
Jul 15, 2013
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.
Jul 09, 2013
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.
