The RV sites were fine but very dissatisfied with the renting of the pavilion could not even use it till 3:00 pm and when we got up there it was not cleaned very good and there was standing water on the floor and there were seniors with walkers and children that could slip and fall. NOT GOOOD!!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Check in time for the pavilion and all other RV, Tent, or Cabin sites is 3:00 p.m. The standing water was from the spraying and scrubbing of the concrete. We will make certain the water gets swept better in the future.

The premium internet was awful. Too close to the road and trains. Truckers honked their horns at 2 and 3 am just to be rude. There should be a rule to outlaw this. The facility was fine, bathrooms were clean, campsites were shaded and well maintained. Check in hosts were friendly and in bright yellow shirts. Other guests at campground were respectful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

If a guest logs onto the free WIFI, and then chooses to upgrade to the premium WIFI they have to tell their device to "forget" the previous WIFI. This may have not been explained very clearly at check in. We will improve this task. We wish we could redirect the semis and trains, but unfortunately we can't. We suggest using ear plugs. We always have them available in our camp store.

Loud semis and trains less than 50 feet away all night. Loud party who let their kids run around screaming until midnight and start again at 7am with no staff intervention.

Very loud sleeping next to the highway.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Hwy 30, and the railroad tracks run parallel to the town of Lava Hot Springs. Ear plugs are available in the camp store.

My only disappointment, the noise. Being our first time ever in any KOA when booking (which we did in person, making it clear it was our first time) it would have been nice to have been told about the noise..all night. Otherwise, we had a great time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Lava Hot Springs is located on hwy 30, and the train tracks are parallel to the hwy. Anywhere a person stays in Lava Hot Springs will hear the noise of our country's means of travel. We are glad you still had a great time. Thanks for staying with us.

We had a beautiful site near the river and in the trees. Easy walking to town. We hope to visit again.

Our stay at Hot Springs was 2 nights with our family (2 adult and two kids of 17 and 13). We were heading for Salt Lake and drove from Yellowstone. The facilities were clean and complete. Highway 30 and the railroad with very long trains made a lot of noise and a bit overwhelming at the beginning of our stay. The village is very nice and the Hot Springs and Olympic Swimming Complex are near.

This KOA was great as far as value for the price. The bathrooms were very clean and the campsites were wonderfully shaded - especially in the heat of July/August. The staff are incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and the Hot Springs. Do be aware that this KOA abuts a US Highway with some night traffic so there is a bit of traffic noise.

Nice campground! Friendly people. Walking distance to hot springs. Showers and rest rooms cleans. We would stay again.

We made reservations almost 1 year ago for a family get together of a mixture of RV's, Trailers, tents and 1 cabin. They were able to put our sites all quite close together. We had a great time. The rest room/showers were clean. We really want to shout out to the employees, they were all awesome, and polite and helpful. Thanks!

We were in site 15 and the sewer smell was awful. I also feel like the campground has put too many camping spots in the camp ground. We felt like our neighbors were right on top of us. It was nice to be able to walk into town easily.

Good, clean , safe.

I’m not a regular campground camper so I’m not used to the crowded camping experience.... but I got the campground mainly for the extras that for my girls could enjoy. I have been through many KOA and am usually impressed. This koa has a tiny and ancient playground and that’s it. It was a huge disappointment for me and the girls. The staff were great.

We enjoyed the running water and ability to shower. My husband said "that was the hottest shower he has had in along time". My only regret is that I didn't know you had tent sites with power. My husband and I need to use medical equipment at night. This was a helpful resource to have power access. We were accommodated by moving our reserved site.

Wonderful tent site with quick access to town and always a very clean campground and one of friendliest places around.

KOA has really stepped up their game. I have already referred people to this camp ground. We will be back soon. Michael

The campground is great as far as cleanliness and are well kept. I wouldn't stay here again due to the noisy trains that rain all night only about 100 feet away.
Jul 29, 2019
It was a nice campground. Our space I felt was overpriced. It was a nice space but I don't think it was worth $120 per night. The other space #15 had their pull out halfway on our patio. We have stayed at this campground before and always stay there when we visit Lava.

Prior to our first camping trip, ever, I called the office a few times with some questions. Both times I called , the person answering the phone was very rude. Wasn’t polite and seemed annoyed that I called twice (separate days). This made me doubt that it was going to be a fun education. Upon arrival; the young man who was at the front desk was very pleasant and accommodating that it made me feel at ease. The rest of our stay was met with friendly store/office clerks. Would definitely stay there again.
