Campground Reviews

IT was amazing.. Like always.
Jul 22, 2019
The folks are so friendly and helpful. Campgrounds are great. Value is in question because of the trains and road. Hard to sleep at night. 6 trains on Friday night until 3 in the morning, maybe later. They are inescapable anywhere in town. If I went back to Lava Hot Springs, I would stay here again but there are tons of quieter towns in Idaho.

Nice campground
Jul 21, 2019
Is was a nice smaller campground. Very clean and the bathrooms were well kept. The only thing I would say that was a little bit of a drag was that we parked under the trees (which was nice) and the sap from the trees got all over the outside of our camper and the bikes we had on the back. But I would recommend this to anyone.

Nice location. Family friendly. Awesome bathrooms. While we love trains, you might want to mention the many trains that pass through the night.

The campgrounds and facilities were wonderful. The only problem was the trains and the traffic. Very, very noisy.

Lovely camp ground. To much road and train noise. Maybe a privacy fence in front would help. Very nice people.

We sure wish there was a reasonable way to dampen the noise of the train and highway 30 noise. Unfortunately, the whole town of Lava Hot Springs was built along those means of transportation. However; it is still a lovely place and the hot springs are a "one of kind". We strive to provide a clean and beautiful KOA Campground. Thank you for staying with us.

I would definitely stay there again the staff was great and super friendly the bathrooms and showers were always clean, the only thing that happened was that one of the neighboring camps was involved in a domestic and my husband had to go break it up and keep them separated until the cops arrived

The campground is exceptional. The only drawback was the road traffic and train traffic.
Jul 13, 2019
Noisy by the highway and train tracks but worth it for the location and amenities. Easy access to town and hot springs, will be back

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.

I love the deluxe cabins and the beautiful views with the noise of the river and the train that passes by.. love love this place �ϋ�

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.

Friendly staff, knowledgeable host.

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.
Jul 09, 2019
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.
