For me, as a pop-up tent owner, this camp wasn't very accomodating with only two toilets and two showers in the men's room. I had to walk butt clenched to the other end of camp. A busy highway and freight train were within 100 feet of my tent. If the sound freight engines and jake breaks is your kind of lullaby, this place is for you. You'll do better at Lava Hot Springs, West.

Loved every moment of our stay at Lava KOA!!!! Staff is always kind, helpful and smiling, one of our family’s favorite places to vacation!

A beautiful very clean and accomadating park. The setting with the trees and the river nearby was amazing, it was very close to town. We rode our bikes and enjoyed the afternoon at the Lava Hot Springs Water park loved the reasonable entrance fee.

We had our company retreat last weekend and it was perfect! Three RV sites and five cabins. We had a great time - thank you!

Camp sites are way to close together now like wow right on top of each other however the lady at the office was so nice and help us move campsites because we had a 1 year old

We stayed in one of the cabins and it was very clean and comfortable. The campground was well maintained and layed out well. The office staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

it was very nice clean and everything you would need right on site very convenient

The premium spot we paid extra for had the parks septic pump as part of the concrete patio. The smell made it impossible to enjoy the patio or the river. The park is also located next to the highway and railroad track. The semi's coming down the hill using the compression brakes is very loud. The trains rumble through all night long. Not worth the extra money for the "Deluxe Space" very cramped

Our RV broke down when we were 30 minutes away from the campground. I called to let them know and they were able to help us out by putting us up in their cabins. We had the best time and enjoyed the cabins. They were very kind and helpful. I would highly recommend this campground. It is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at. The cabins and campground were clean and good sized.

It was GREAT! The little store had about everything you would need and the folks inside were very helpful in answering all our questions. The concrete patios and park strips are so nice and clean--no rocks dirt or gravel getting in your trailer!!

The River sites are very nice!! Everything was clean and seemed spacious. Very nice and helpful staff, Michael went above and beyond to make sure our trailer would fit on our site.

Great campground right on the river (cottages do not have river access). The reason I am giving a 4 vs 5: patio umbrella was broken and not usable: we reported the issue and it wasn't addressed during our 6 day stay. Cottage looked to be located on the river when booking but there is no direct access from cottage to river. Otherwise, cottage was very nice and campground is in great location!

We had the end spot and multiple people drove very close to our truck and trailer. We also had multiple people walk through our camp. We still love this campground but we will not be staying in the end spot again if possible.

Loved it. I will be back again.

This KOA is a great place to stay. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They keep the camp sites beautiful and clean. This was our second time staying there. We certainly will return.

This place is a little piece of HEAVEN ON EARTH! So much that I want to keep it a secret! We love the river spots the best! Staying here for work felt more like a vacation. Friendly staff , immaculate sites, and within walking distance to the hot springs makes this ideal for campers and cabin rentals! Thank you for creating an amazing space to make memories and to relax in style!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. All of us at the KOA love our little piece of Heaven On Earth too!

Too crowded. A rude employee implied my husband was handicapped. We’ve stayed there for years, but probably never again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This review has made my heart sink. I cannot think of one of our employees that would be rude. Did they have a yellow shirt on, and did you catch the name? We have such a great KOA team, that we would be very disappointed if this was truly one of our team members.

Our site was so dusty and dirty! Had an extremely hard time getting level. The constant trains and road noise was so unpleasant. It was nice to be within walking distance to the hot springs.

I wish we could have stayed longer!

Best place to forget about your problems�

The facilities were excellent, although we did not use the bathrooms or laundry facilities. Large spaces where we stayed with easy hookups. Pull through sure was great for our 30' rig but may be a challenge for the big rigs (40+). It's right on the highway and train tracks so road noise can be a big issue, but due to the terrain in the valley that is beyond their control.

We had a great time in Lava. We even got use to the Train that goes by hourly. It is a great place to have fun.

We stayed three days, last week before school started it was busy with families, we enjoy the local activities and caught up on laundry before moving on

We have Stayed here the last 4 years! It’s our favorite KOA it’s so beautiful and all the upgrades are so nice!
Aug 25, 2020
We had a great site. Plenty of room for our family to join us for meals., Other family members had another site and a cabin. The bathroom and shower facilities were clean and well maintained. We would stay here again.

Excellent services and prime location

We had a great time. We stayed at the deluxe cabins

Beautiful all over the place. Love the cabin and view.

Camp grounds were will keep and staff very helpful. Area/community was not what I expected;more a playground area. Did not see any hot springs for public use, just those that were connected to "hotels"

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear you did not find the hot springs. They are a beautiful, well ran, facility located within walking distance from the KOA East campground. The water is sulfur free and the temperatures are 105-110.

great grounds and very well maintained. The Trains during the night and the 6am Trash Truck made sleeping less than ideal. good people but distractions were not ideal

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your comments. The train tracks do run parallel along hwy 30 as does the town of Lava Hot Springs. The trash is scheduled to pick up every Monday and Thursday.

Was very good . Would have been nice to have a stove in the cabin, cooking on the BBQ was a little rough !
Aug 24, 2020
The campground was very nice and well maintained. We were surprised by the traffic and train noise and for that reason probably won't be back.
Aug 24, 2020
Too much noise during the day. Large parties of folks that went on into the evening.
Aug 24, 2020
The staff was excellent and the amenities were wonderful. The free WiFi was terrible so I shelled out extra for premium WiFi and it was no better. I know people go to your campgrounds to get away from work but that doesn’t mean we don’t need to get things done while we are there.

My stay there was perfect. We had such a great time and every person that works there was so sweet, warm and welcoming with the exception of one guy that i am not sure his position,but he is a very unhappy mean guy. I would definitely recommend this to my family and friends. It was just a short walk to everything in lava and the discounts for the tube rentals were wonderful. I will stay again :)

The improvements you guys have made are awesome! The sites are roomy, clean and well taken care of. The sites with the dog runs are really nice and the new tiny homes look awesome!
