Campground itself isn't too bad. Many sites were shady, they had at least a small patch of grass, and the sites were level. However I had to mark it down due to the frequent train noise from the edge of the campground. It is on a major cross country route, and the noise is incredibly loud at night. We won't be back. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

There are lots of historic areas nearby due to the Oregon trail. We found that more interesting than the Hot Springs. Geysers, springs, and ghost towns were fun to explore.

Our truck broke down near Grace, Idaho and our fifth wheel was towed to Lava Hot Springs KOA. We talked to the desk person earlier and they arranged things. We arrived about 10:00 at night and camp workers were there waiting and got us Parked in a pull thru space. We stayed for four nights while the truck was repaired. The park staff went out of their way to make sure that we were taken care of and we were very pleased with our stay there. We would return to this park. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

If you need repairs see caribou service just north of Lava Hot Springs. Sid Gyde will provide honest, reasonable, and friendly service.

Beautiful location, great amenities, lots to do in town and around camp site. Only complaint would be the trains that run night and day that are so close to this site you can feel the ground shake. If you have young babies, they will not be able to sleep here. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Tent.

Not Big Rig friendly! The sites are level for some areas but extreme slope in others. They have 3 premium sites that are premium because there is a concrete pad 40 feet long. But trees obstruct the satellite coverage. Nice people and new owners, but I wouldn't stay here in a Big Rig (over 34 feet ). We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Campground has 30 & 50 amp area. We were in the old 30 amp area with FUSE boxes. Our power blew those old screw in fuses and we had to wait until morning to get another fuse. We had only our fridge and clock using electricity. We left messages on their answering machine, but they did not return our calls. Employee in the morning didn't know where the answering machine was. Dusty campground that advertises that they deliver pizza to your site. The kitchen area is messy and dirty and not appetizing. STAY AWAY! We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this park and have stayed here several times. Pros: location is within walking distance to hot springs. Riverside sites are beautiful. Bathrooms/showers very nice and private. Cons: sites are small, railroad and highway noises are loud. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was one of the worst KOA's we stayed at during a 2-1/2 week vacation. Sites are crowded and you are either at the edge of a tiny dirty river or about 10 ft from a major highway. We moved from our "pull thru" site because it had a half buried building in front of the space to one by the freeway - lots of semis and several trains run by. No river access for the kids which wasn't a big loss considering. Sewers are not capped except by large rock or tin can - smell is terrible. Has to be a health hazard. Find a different spot to stay. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

My site was not close to level. Personnel were friendly and helpful. Large pull through sites are double so you also have a place for your truck. Trains are a problem without earplugs for they come 2-3 per hour and the campsite is at the bottom of a steep grade so the trucks are extra noisy. Spent two days and decided to move on. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I have no idea why anyone would rate this park over a '3'. The park owner was nice enough, but the 50A sites are not even close to being even. The drive out there is 5 miles of nice 4 lane and then a one land bridge with a traffic light (not the CG fault, but it is what it is). Then 2 lanes and a very small pull in portion for the CG. Trains are incredibly loud, I mean very loud. Wi-Fi worked but not super well, all in all it's not a KOA quality CG. I hope they work on getting it better, but as of now, I would never ever return to this CG. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

I was really surprised by all the positive comments regarding this park. The location to town, river and WiFi were the only thing we found as a plus. The entrance to the park is definitely a negative, there were 2 RVs in front of us and our tow ended up on the highway with no way to move it or the rig. The site we were assigned was not level, dog waste around electrical and water connection, plus trash in site next to us. It was hard to figure out which site was ours because there were two slots for the site, the rig in front of us had the same problem, very confusing. The highway and train tracks are very close, they normally don't bother us but they did during our stay. We ended up leaving early so we could get down the road to find a spot to sleep. The owners must have purchased an older park and are trying to update it, but they have a long way to go. It did have nice tent sites which were along the river. We would not return to this RV Park. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Although it was nice to be by the river, the sites are small and very close together. On the weekends, the park is full of kids and families. We would not stay here again. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Enjoyed everything about this park, bathrooms and showers brand new. Very friendly staff. Nice sized sites. Floating down the river was a blast. Hot springs and pool w/ slides was in walking distance and cheap $11/day. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

The park is quite small, but it is very lovely. The mosquitos are quiet bad and I will not let that reflect my overall stay at this park. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Park managers were very friendly, but the facility is in need of repairs. The men's bathroom showers had uncovered holes in the walls, and the outside door lock was broken. The RV spaces need to be leveled. Lots of highway and train noise. We stayed only 1 night. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
