Meet Your Hosts

Its a Great Day!

We are life-long residents of Lava Hot Springs. We purchased this campground in 2016, formerly called Rivers Edge Campground.  Since then, we have made many upgrades to the RV sites, tent sites, added 4 cottages with bathrooms, 3 camping cabins, a pavilion, a bath house, a playground, a paw pen, and remodeled the campstore with new bathrooms/showers and laundromat.   We value your experience with us and strive to provide a clean, safe, and beautiful campground for our guests.
