It was to expensive for my family to stay at KOA

Our average daily site charge for the 2019 holiday season for a full hook up pull thru RV site is between $57.95 - $62.95 + tax for 2 people, 1 RV per night for sites #70-84.

Very nice, quiet, clean and close to town campground.

There was a family reunion that had 120 people they over took all the amenities, rest room shows, and the WI FI didn’t work. I felt like you are charging for every spot of grass you have.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We only charge for sites that are rented and any extra people, cars, or tents. The 4th of July is a very busy time of year.

Lava Hot Springs is a pretty clean place however the spaces are so close together. Couldn’t use our fire pit because spaces so close , I was afraid a fire would scorch neighbors’ truck. Walking distance to the main attraction. Restrooms and showers were pretty clean.

Didn't realize check wasn't till 3pm, all other campgrounds were 1pm. When we got there at 12:30pm we couldn't check-in till 3pm. There was only 1 RV in the park so I have no idea why we couldn't check in. The park was completely empty. Dont think I will stay at KOA again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Even though the check in and check out times are listed on every reservation confirmation email and advertised on our website, and our super reservation staff has been trained to remind every guest of those times when making reservations, we understand it can still be expected to check in early. This time of year we need time to water, mow, and clean sites thoroughly as it is a super busy time.

The only problem was that we got that sap all over our 5th wheel and truck and had to clean them multiple times. Also you can't pick up dish from your lower section or under the trees anywhere. Otherwise, all is great.

We like where we had the spot next too the river and the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Excellent and clean facilities, very friendly and helpful staff, and convenient location walking distance to town. The wifi range could be improved for RV sites in the upper half of the hill.

Wonderful, clean facilities. Some road noise for the cabins but the other amenities make up for it.

We had a trailer site and we were in a accident with our trailer. We still came to koa and they accommodated us after the tragic news by putting us in a cabin. Thank you to all the caring staff

We really enjoyed out time and really liked our camping spot by the river! We will differently be back again.

It’s over priced for what you get. $277 for a deluxe cabin. That was a check in at 3pm Check out next morning at 11am. Not even a full 24 hours for that price. I requested and was told in an email that we could have an extra late check out at 2pm. When we arrived, staff said they decided 2 days prior that there would be no more late check outs. Email should have been honored. Not worth the money

The Quelway a lava Hot Springs at the upper end of the town, is a nice campground. The staff are friendly, the campground is clean, and there are lots of options. The restrooms and showers are also clean. One thing to keep in mind is if you are a light sleeper the train comes by constantly even during the middle of the night. This is not Kay always issue, but just be aware of it

Breathtaking views and an impeccably maintained campground made for a most perfect stay! Everyone in our party wanted to stay longer -- we will definitely be back!!

Young lady in the office was kind enough to loan me an extra ten feet of dump hose. Took 30 feet to reach the dump at my site. Loud with the trains coming through. Not a great overnight spot.

We loved our campground by the river. Clean restrooms and grounds. The staff is super kind! I'm 65 and loved tubing the Portneuf river with family. Great place for family reunion. So many things close by to experience! This is my 3rd trip to Lava Hot Springs. We will be back to have a reunion with our family! Be sure to book ahead! Thank you so much!

Beautiful location and well groomed park.

The reservation and check in process was easy and seamless. Our RV site was beautiful— right on the river — and quiet. The hookups were easy to use. The campground was clean and well maintained and the staff friendly and helpful. Wonderful stay. Thank you.

Nice spacious sites. A bit pricey and lots of road and train noise during the day. Good showers and laundry facilities.

The camp was so clean. We loved all the shade trees. We we're running a bit late checking out, it was so nice to not be rudely approached approached about it. Thumbs Up!

Loved the Lava Hot Springs KOA. Clean, friendly people, will go again many times.

Facility was nice and clean. Sites are very close together and prices seemed a little high for camping

The campground was very nice. Good shade, clean. The proximity to the hot springs/pool and river was great. The staff was very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the highway road noise (semi trucks & air brakes) and train noise all day and night long was horrible. We had to use ear plugs and still got very little sleep. Beyond their control, yes, but we’ll stay elsewhere next time.

Great location, beautiful scenery and great staff.

Spots are very nice and maintained! Staff was very accommodating. We had to cancel our reservations at our next destination and the staff here found us new diggs at KOA City Center. You can tell they've done a lot of upgrading here. I'll be back.

Assigned site very unlevel. After 1hr+ trying to level (with auto level system) we moved to different site. Then discovered it was a partial hookup but, had to ask for a refund of the difference. Rest of the stay was ok.

Super fun place to stay and enjoy the water park near by. We had a campsite near the river and was so peaceful to hear the water flowing near by.

We really enjoyed the spacious back deck along the river front where we watch the show "The Great Out Doors" and then opened the windows to the sound of the river as we slept. Nice well equipt cabins with continious hot water for the shower.
