Beautiful place and landscape. Our site was on the Portneuf river. So relaxing! All the people around our RV site were polite, there was no noise or drama. The staff was friendly and helpful. Facilities are great and kept like new. We enjoyed it a lot. Will go back! Recommend it! Thank you.

Nice, slightly out-of-town location for avoiding the summer crush in town...which was a mad-house. The improvements to this KOA are much appreciated. We hardly needed to level our trailer. This campground seems to attract a quieter crowd, which we definitely appreciated. Flowing river, big beautiful trees. All good.

A great place to sit back and relax! Many activities for children of all ages. A sleepy town, so don’t expect “gourmet” dining but there are places with the standard menu of pizza and burgers. Bring your ear plugs because the trains at night can be LOUD!! The kids sleep right through it, it’s just us adults that have a hard time. Bring a lot of water because it does get warm here!!

It was an amazing weekend with my wife and grandkids. Peggy was a very good host and very helpful to make first time in Lava memorable. We are planning to came back again in August.

We had a lovely waterfront spot and our friends were in the middle area. Spots were very close together, to the point our friends couldn't access their firepit because their neighbors slide-out was over the pit. The waterfront was nice but a little scary with little kids, especially at night. The large cottonwood trees provide excellent shade but were shedding REALLY bad (cotton, seeds)

The campground was beautiful and well maintained. We loved how close it was to the town and the hot springs. We will definitely be back!

Everything was nice and clean, I would however recommend more bathrooms at the top by the pavilion they were always full with people showering, so maybe some just dedicated bathrooms for people not needing to shower that are in the tent spots.

Staff was very friendly and the campsites were clean. The only thing that could have made it better is if the trains didn’t pass by so frequently throughout the night.

All in all, it was a pleasant 2 night stay. EXCEPT ------ it should be made known on the site that there is a freight train track system within about 400 feet of the campgrounds! The freight trains (plural) run consistently from morning into the early evening. Many, many multi engine powered, long freight car units going east and west. It made one appreciate what peace and quiet really could be.

Tree pollen filled the air and made it difficult to breath. Coughing became as common as breathing. Prices at the convenience store were highway robbery - $4 for a pack of KOA playing cards? The campground is right next to a train line that runs every hour all night long. The engineer made sure everyone knew the train was coming with his horn around 6-7 am each morning.

We love your place!!! I have a suggestion, it would be very helpful to have chairs in the upper bathroom/shower rooms. It is kind of awkward sitting on the toilet seat, after the shower to put on pants and shoes. I think one chair in each room would be very helpful. Thanks!!!

We came with the family and spent Memorial weekend at the park. The kids had a blast riding bikes and meeting the others camped around us. The park was clean and the staff was very friendly. We would stay again if we are ever in the area.

Awsome campground. Camp site was clean and tidy. Staff were all friendly and helpfull. Will return again. THANKS.

The showers were clean. That's always an important thing for me. The staff were courteous and helpful.

Did not care for site 15. No BBQ fir a supersite and the sewer can thing was not appealing to look at and the sewer smelled. We prefer the supersites by the bathrooms so we won’t come unless we get one of those. Otherwise we love it. Your staff is great and it’s fun!

Very nice KOA. The train and traffic behind us were a bit noisy, but there isn’t anything the KOA can do about that. The camp itself was clean and had nice amenities. I would definitely recommend it! Thanks!!

We thoroughly enjoyed the campground. The grounds were very well maintained and extremely clean. The employees were very friendly too. The only negative was the truck noise from the highway and the trains. But it wasn't anything our earplugs couldn't take care of.

Great campground right on the river! The hosts in the office were extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Great KOA location. Staff was equally great.

We really enjoyed our stay by the river. We will stay in the upper area next time to experience the combo pull through and tent site. The restrooms are nicer in the upper area. I suggest you install soap dishes in the lower area showers. The campground is on an amazing piece of property, and the trail to town is nice. One has to know there is a busy highway and train tracks close by though.

We had not planned to stay at KOA, but ran into RV troubles so we needed to plug in somewhere. It was nice that they had an opening. We decided to extend a day, they were good on that. I still couldn't get my RV to kick in on propane for the fridge. so we asked for a 3rd night. They demanded we move spots. We did so, no one took the spot they had us move from, too pricey to be treated that way.

We had a wonderful time in the cabin. Glad we had ear plugs. We are planning on going back !!!
May 23, 2018
The campground has really been upgraded! Amazed at all the growth in Lava!! Bring your earplugs— a train track is VERY close by!

Staff very polite. Checking was very fast and easy. One of the cleanest KOA's i have seen.

This is a lovely campground and they do a good job with upkeep, cleanliness and updates to the area. The only true drawback is that it is located right beside a busy highway and railroad tracks. Obviously, nothing to be done about that but we would look for a campground with a little less noise next time.

We stayed 4 nights by the river I site 4 ... Close to one of the cabins my sibling was renting. We were close to the office, but the Internet was extremely spotty and often had to walk up to the office to really get any consistent signal. The park was well maintained but the laundry was a significant distance ... Used the car to get there as carryin laundry all that way would. It have been easy

Nice campground in a convenient location. Could have a few more amenities for the price, but was fine overall. Note that the campground is situated next to a highway and train tracks, so you will hear trucks and trains throughout most of the night. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a six person cabin without a bathroom. The cabin was great-had just what we needed. Our kids loved it. The bathrooms and showers were close, nice and really clean. Fun little park for kids. Loved that our dog could stay. Nice staff.

I was pleasantly surprised. The new owner was awesome. Told my wife of the improvements he had planned. He even helped us out when we ran into a snag in the campground. Love this place, and will definitely be back again.

A lovely campground, and the location is very convenient. Not far from the Hot Pools, and a short walk through Lava to check out the cute shops they have in town. This is a nice place to get away, we will be back later this summer!!
