Extremely loud next to train and highway and very early yeah truck, mostly a problem for small children. Tent sites were extremely close. Otherwise excellent. BEST bathroom and shower.

Everything is perfect but little bit expensive for tent camping ($32).

Water, sewer, and electricity were far apart. I had to purchase additional sewer hose to reach. Otherwise it was nice.

The staff were lovely, the amenities were good, but the location was terrible, both me and my girlfriend were kept awake by constant trucks and trains passing throughout the night, was a nice site just poor location

Great but we had the only campsite with absolutely no shade! Also, there were never bathrooms available because someone was always showering.

The facility was very nice and clean, my only complaint is the noise. If you can handle trains and noisy birds early in the morning it's a great place to stay.

I loved the bathrooms and showers, they were very nice. It was a nice clean campground. The location is in a very noisy place though. It is situated right by a highway where you can hear semis and trains going past all night. The kids enjoyed the playground.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Bathrooms are cleaner and nicer than some hotels I've stayed at :) Campsites are clean as well. The pavilion with the stove, grill and sink are very useful when it rains.

Very easy to get there, check in and set up, was pretty quiet.. Except for the train.

With the railroad and freeway being so close, it did interrupt sleeping a bit. We slept right by the river though, and that helped drown out the noise. The staff was great, and this is a wonderful place to stay to be close to the hot pools!

Super friendly staff, beautiful property great amenities. Loved it! Great owners, very invested. My husband and I were on a road trip from the Yukon and needed a good rest, the staff were very accommodating. We were very thankful :)

We had a blast staying at the KOA. They had activities for the children. Their staff was extremely helpful and very polite. We will be back.

Family Friendly, clean, close to Hot pools. Will definitely stay here again.

Staff is super friendly. Bent over backwards to accommodate. Only complaint is the privacy level between campgrounds is zero, they are all so close together. This is more of a community camp site. But if you love having people around you, this is the perfect place! Everything within walking distance, so convenient! Love this quaint little town, a family favorite!

The people at the camp site were nice but with the constant train passing by and we were told there was Wi-Fi but there was none the entire stay we were there so I probably won't recommend this location.

Previously, this campground has been not crowded, and well taken care of. It is located along a major US highway and a busy railroad line, so noise is a given. This particular stay the campground was packed, and the facilities in the tent area were not adequate to handle the number of people present. Staff was very pleasant and helpful, to their credit.

The staff was nice. The campground and facilities were in good condition. However, there was always a long line to use the restroom/take a shower, due to the limited number available and only having toilet/shower/sink combos.

Clean, fun, affordable, safe, fabulous!

This is our 4th time at this KOA campground. Every time we come, they have made more great improvements. The staff here is always incredibly friendly and helpful. My favorite thing is that it is VERY clean- the campsites, the restrooms and showers, the pavilion and camping areas. We love staying here!

This was actually our first time using a KOA campground. Realizing that we registered late, we were given an open spot that was not very user friendly, but the workers at the KOA did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable for us, including allowing us to move to a different spot as soon as one was open.

The service desk employees were very friendly and helpful. The janitors cleaning the bathrooms did excellent, made our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

playing area for my kids didnt have any green grass. local truckers dont have no respect for sleep.(break check)(tent) no solution for disrupted stay. had to deal with drama from other campers.

Nice tent camping area

Lava Hot Springs KOA is my favorite KOA on the planet!! See you next year!
Jul 23, 2014
The facilities we the best and cleanest I've ever seen. The night trains and highway traffic might keep me from staying there again.
Jul 22, 2014
The facilities are very nice, the staff is very helpful and personable, and it was good to take a break from the routine.

If anyone is going to tent camp request to be by the river any other spot is a joke. You are crunched in between RV's on a tiny spot of land. The bathrooms are nice with the showers. Close distance into town. Trains are very loud and freeway all night long you will hear trains.

We stayed at T01 ,that is one of the big sites that is very private, it worked wonders for our big party of 16. The only thing is that with having kids we were worried about the water fall being so close. So seeing some kind of protection along the side of that waterfall would ease our worries. Otherwise we had an amazing time.

Bathrooms are very nice and clean. Tent sites need more shade.

My first time staying at a KOA campground ... will come back again for sure!

My only complaint is that we reserved a large tent plus spot with water, however there was no water on the site. When we asked about it they seemed surprised and came and verified there wasn't any. There were no other spots available to move us to, and they did not discount our stay to the regular tent price, and even charged us extra when we asked for a late check out.

Nice Campground. My only complaint is the upcharge for a second tent. I already paid for the site and the number of campers, why should I pay more for erecting a second tent?
Jun 22, 2014
Wonderful bathrooms (I do wish that they would clean them more than once a day during busy months), friendly staff and well maintained grounds. We rented multiple sites as well as the pavilion and we had a great time. The train keeps you up all night but that is the breaks when you sleep in Lava Hot Springs. We would love to return.
