Nice campground, we will be back.

We arrived around 5:00pm and were greeted by professional, friendly staff. Nicest bathroom facilities I've seen. In the morning we watched a female moose run through camp and cross the river. Thrilling! Our kids loved seeing the train and we weren't bothered by the noise- though we were in an RV. We loved it here and would definitely stay again!

It was clean and very peaceful. All but the trains. Maybe some trees planted to muffle the sound would be helpful. The playground was nice for the grand kids. The staff was very good and nice.

When asked if we could check out late-it was sure for $10. They said they had no space but the place was empty. Not good PR.

Everything and everyone at this KOA campground was delightful.....the staff, the cleanliness (!!) and the welcoming energy. It would be great if other every KOA followed suit! Thank you All!...Pam from California

We have stayed at hundreds of campgrounds and this one is probably the prettiest one we have seen, very clean and having the Lava Hot Springs next door doesn't hurt either

Traffic noise and trains taper off significantly after dark

The staff at this KOA were extremely friendly and helpful. It's just too bad that it's located on a major trucking route with noisy trucks going by often. Other than that we enjoyed it very much. Thank you.

The campground is located within a 5 minute walk of some of the best hot springs we've been too. The campground is very clean, great sites, large mature trees and the staff were very hospitable. Sad we were there only one night!

Andi and her staff are wonderful. The park is very nice and kept up nicely.

Very nice campground, friendly staff. Read a lot about road and train noise. In a newer rv, it never bothered me. Maybe in a tent it would be noticeable. Great stay.
Apr 16, 2016
Helpful staff. Nicely located on a river with trees and shade. Easy walk to hot springs and town
Apr 15, 2016
It was a short stay... staff very friendly and the campground very well kept!

The ground needs to be much more level, but we understand that it was spring and the ground washes down hill with the weather. We were told the ground gets leveled a little later in the season. At least they moved us to a better spot that was easier to get our trailer leveled.

very nice and clean,with the creek running back behind the camp,made our stay very plesent.
Apr 12, 2016
stayed in spot 12 next to river ... beautiful RV park was pretty much at capacity and was quiet and clean.
Apr 12, 2016
Nice location to river with short walk to town and hot pools. Front desk employees were the best.
Apr 11, 2016
Great location, right on the river. Easy walk / bike ride to town. Staff was very helpful.
Apr 10, 2016
Nice bathrooms/showers!
Apr 09, 2016
Great place to stay when you want to visit the hot springs!
Apr 07, 2016
Beautiful place, convenient location, well kept.
Apr 06, 2016
Love the place mainly because it is only 75 miles away from home.Good for a weekend a few times during the year.New owners are doing an excellent job of improving the facilities.

It's a great place to stay, clean and friendly. I come back 2-3 times a year.
Apr 04, 2016
This Kampground is nice for a short stay. This is our 2nd time staying here and is perfect for a weekend getaway. The train runs all night and is VERY close. Also, the camp sites ate small and very cramped. Otherwise, I would recommend.

We arrived to someone in our spot. No compensation provided for inconvenience. Had among the poorest wifi connection to date and noisy train running by all night. Beautiful creek running through it. Convenient to hot springs is a factor.
Apr 01, 2016
Not very well maintained. Couldn't turn water was told we have to wait at least 1/2 to 3/4 of hour at least figured out myself.

I was arriving late on Easter Sunday. The folks called and left a message with instructions of what to do upon arrival. The instructions were very clear and simple. The campground is beautiful and sits right on the river. The staff was friendly and everything was clean.
Mar 29, 2016
I was disapointed that they did not have the uper restrooms and showers ready. That's not x acceptable for an Easter weekend that is always busy at Lava

Cashier Lady was the best part of the experience!!!
Mar 27, 2016
Beautiful and clean. So close to town that you can walk or bike.
Mar 17, 2016
Late check in very easy. RV sites close to facilities, bathrooms have excellent design & clean. Andy owner super nice.
Feb 15, 2016
It was good. Restrooms were clean, staff was nice. Right at the end of the RV pad I had was some dog droppings that I didn't particularly care for. Lots of ice and dumps stations were not available. Which was fine, just wish it would have been more clearly stated.

Glad we were so close to the shower and restrooms. It was below 0 when we camped so we couldn't hookup to water or sewer.


Unfortunately if the temperatures are below freezing we have to take precautionary measures to prevent damage to the RV and campground facility. We hope you have had a wonderful "New Year" so far. Thanks for choosing KOA.

Andi and kody are great! Everyone in lava was really nice. The campground is well taken care of. We'll be back next fall !!!! - mark

One of the cleanest koa's we have stayed at recently. Location is perfect for visiting the hot mineral springs in town. You can easily walk or bike. Fishing out your backdoor in the river. Owners and staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We camped in a large fifth wheel but could not help but notice the new cabins right on the river. They had great decks, grills, and fire pits.

Nice clean campground with good bathrooms but RV sites are too close together
Oct 28, 2015
Trains were very noisy and there was dog poop everywhere. Stepped in it and tracked it into our motor home, not happy
Oct 26, 2015
