Campground Reviews

It was so cold... I upgraded to a Camping Cabin. It was lovely! My own little space with a "firepalce" (warm and cozy!). A microwave and mini fridge. It was a perfect place to have a quiet mom-vacation.

Thanks for a clean well maintained Deluxe Kottage It provided a cute cozy place to hang out between the mineral hot springs and the lodge where our family stayed down the road.

Although our stay was after winter starts to settle in on Lava Hot Springs, I think it is the best time of year to visit and enjoy the world famous hot springs. There appear to be adequate camp facilities but we did not make use of them. Due to the chilly weather, we just hunkered down in our RV when not out and about in the quaint little downtown area. Jim, our camp host, was great!

Thank you for your review. We agree, winter is an awesome time to visit Lava Hot Springs.

Nice campground but I need to remember to pack a snow shovel this time of year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review. Wished we would have known about your snow shovel need. Maintenance can assist by making arrangements through the office.

Very well managed and groomed campground. Amenities are some of the best. Would have stayed longer but the snowy weather pushed us south for the Winter. Will be back since close to home and such nice facilities.

My favorite KOA! We stay there at least 3 times a year and always have a great time!

It was nice but a public street run right through the park so I didn’t feel safe and didn’t feel like we could leave anything out. We didn’t use any of the facilities so I can’t speak to that. We personally wouldn’t stay here again.

The central location of K O A west is great we were able to walk and ride our r z r throughout town, The hot pools, shops and restaurants are close, The site map and reservations were easy, The on site Office Manager and Grounds Keepers are polite and accommodating The Grounds are well kept, Restrooms and Showers are clean. See You Again Thanks Jerry

Very beautiful campground!!

I was rather disappointed with my stay. A fellow camper was violating both the no pets unattended and quiet time rules and there was no staff on hand to help deal with the situation. An after hours contact would be appreciated as I could t find any staff at 2:45 am and couldn’t stand the barking dog outside in its kennel any longer.

Sorry about your experience. There is a sign posted on the front door of the office providing after hour contact information.

Great staff & facilities. A nice laid back place - we took in the springs & had some great food downtown (5 minute walk away). A bit noisy from the trains & traffic, but bearable.
Oct 22, 2022
You were right about hearing the trains - ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Didn’t get much sleep.

Great spot on the little creek, right next to town center. Clean with everything working well. Delightful!

Really nice park, clean and quite, super friendly staff, I look forward to staying there again!

Great stay by the water! Also we had some car issues Sunday and the young man working Sunday afternoon went the extra mile to help us get jump started. It was super appreciated and saved our trip

We love this KOA. Always friendly, clean, and well maintained. This is also a great location-you can walk to anything in town, including hot pots right across the street and a grocery store two doors down. We’ll be back!

It was great! My kids wanted to play on the bubble so we were sad that it was out of order but everything else was great

Clean, well maintained, the new staff member was very nice at check-in. The bathrooms need a heater, but we’re clean and maintained well!

The Cabin was very clean, loved the fire bowl and chair outside. But the pull out bed was not acceptable to sleep on. I have had back probelms since then and can usually sleep on anything but this was so hard. The cabin wasn't cheap and when you pay that price I would expect the secondary sleeping arrangement to be at least something that can be slept on.

Just stayed for one night, but it was a great experience. Campground and bathrooms were very clean. Location was excellent.

Cabins are very clean, easy access to the city within walking distance and Hot springs. We really enjoyed ourselves and the campground itself is very clean as well.

It was a great stay. We stayed in C19 one of the bedroom doors didn't stay open and the fans seem to only work on high. I would recommend a trash with a lid instead of an open trash can.

KOA is never my first choice when making my selection of an RV park. We have RV;d for over 35 years and have stayed in plenty of KOAs. I realize that I can purchase an annual membership for a 10% discount, but it has never penciled out for me. The park was very nice in a beautiful setting in central location. We were there for the soak in the mineral pools, mission accomplished.

We had a great time! The weather was beautiful, the campsite perfect, right next to river. We appreciated the very clean restrooms. We asked to have our fire pit covered because it was very close to our trailer and were concerned about accidentally falling in. A staff member quickly came and covered it with a board. We also enjoyed the soothing hot springs. We will definitely be back!

Great facility!! Jim at the front desk was awesome!!! They really want you to have a good time and are more than willing to accommodate the best they can. Clean clean clean bathrooms! Beds were super comfortable. We will stay there again for sure.

My girlfriend and I reserved a cabin at the Lava Hotsprings KOA west campground. We reserved the cabin two days in advance which is well into their one week notice for cancellation. My girlfriend had a dental emergency the very day of our reservation. I called the KOA fully expecting to loose our entire one day deposit. Jim from KOA answered the phone and IMMEDIATELY offered to move our reservation to another day so we wouldn't loose our deposit! It's caring employees like this why we will continue to go to this KOA. They could have easily and rightfully changed us our deposit for lack of proper cancellation (one week in advance) but because they hire caring people like Jim we are able to get though this emergency and still enjoy a future visit to Lava without costing us extra money. Thank you Jim and KOA West!!!

I expected to be crammed in with many RVs as this time of year is a great time to take a soak in these world famous hot springs. We were virtually the only guests on site this weekend. They are a must visit when in southern Idaho. We took a dip on a very chilly 8° night and the water was amazing. Make sure you check out the town's museum also.
