We have a "big rig" so we were offered the only pull thru site "on the hill" when we called. We are about 55 feet with a large hauler and 35 foot fifth wheel. When we pulled into the campground area there was 1 other trailer on the site. It is just a gravel parking lot behind the hotel with some very short sites along the river. No tables, no frills. Site 12 is an easy to back in site but is longer and wider than the others. We made it up "the hill" to our site - space #15. Down "the hill"was a different story. Because of where dead trees are located we had to back down the narrow hill road. Very treacherous and dropoff slopes on one side and trees and hill on the other side. If you are in one of the modern larger coaches this site is a challenge.

Price is high for the quality, but on par for every place in this area.

Honestly, we will not stay here again. The sites are intended for truck campers or small trailers. It's definitely a no frills, dirt place. The plus is that the town hot springs pools are right across the street. However, every place in town is close to the hot springs. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Avoid "the hill". Pick site 12 if you have to stay here.

We stayed for 2 nights and were very happy we stopped here. The owner greeted us warmly and we chose a spot behind the motel. We were here mid-week and off-season which seems to be the best time to come. Lots of room at the RV park and at the hot mineral pools that are right across the street. The RV entrance is on the corner of Main St and S 3rd Ave E. Look for the white sign. There are full hookups here - water, power, sewer, good wi-fi, and cable TV. There are 3 sites on a little hill too. Our rig is only 26' (plus tow vehicle) but there was one big-rig next to us and it was backed in as we all were with no issues coming or going. Spaces are gravel with trees and some grass between each spot. Being right in town is wonderful and having the mineral pools a few steps away was amazing. We would definitely come back to this park and to the town of Lava Hot Springs which is small and interesting. Have a walk through the little museum for a comprehensive history of this area. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Motorhome.

This small RV park has 15 sites and it nestled in the trees beside the river. It is centrally located within walking distance of all the town's activities, from the tube rental places for tubing on the river to the Lava Hot Springs Park across the street where you can soak in the hot tubs all day, to restaurants and other parks. The sites come with FULL hook ups and are easy to get in and out of. All sites are back-in except site 15 which looks like a pull-through but is not right on the river. Site 12 is their longest and is about 65 feet. There is ample turnaround area to be able to back in. All sites come with a cement slab for easy step out of your RV. There are no picnic tables, but you can have a campfire if you bring a container. Note: there is also a walk path leaving from the camp to a hot spring right on the river frequented by local residents. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Motorhome.

NOTE: Site 12 is an end site, so you only have one neighbor.

Rent inner tubes across the street and have fun on the river. Visit the Lava Hot Spring State Park across the street and enjoy relaxing in the hot clean water.

Like so many campgrounds the owner/manager made all the difference. He was very nice, and we enjoyed our stay. No showers or laundry, and we were there after the 'season' was over, so it was quiet. ALL campgrounds in this location are going to hear the train as it labors up the canyon. Plenty of shade, plenty of room between sites. We are looking forward to staying there again. I believe if you're coming after the main season (after Labor-day) you could probably bargain hard for a better price. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here before. A nice place on the river but priced too high. There wasn't even a dumpster this time. It is right across the street from the hot springs so very convenient. Staff and owner are very friendly and try to be accommodating. I would stay again. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Motorhome.

Friendly office staff. This town does have a train that runs through quite often and there is really no getting away from it. The train seemed noisier on Sunday night, though. Right across the street from the hot pools and a small park our toddler loved real close by as well. We were in campsite 7 which was a nice corner lot, but a lot of foot traffic using a path to the hot pools. A family of geese walked through camp every morning which was great to see. Campsites would be kind crowded if we went later during the summer I'm sure. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here with my family during our kids fall break from school. We really liked how close the site is to the hot springs -- (just across the street). RV site had nice cement pad outside our door, and river behind our rig was fun to listen to. Sites feel a bit close together, and no frills at this site. For example, fire ring is a bunch of rocks too close to RV to be useful, no barbeque, no table. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Travel Trailer.

Don't let this place fool you when you pull up. It is a GEM! The hotel is old, and I have no idea about the rooms, but drive to the back and you will find several spots right on the river with full hook-ups. We stumbled upon this place 2 years ago, and we were apprehensive, but after we got settled in, we realized we had the best RV location in town. This little slice of heaven is right across the street from the Lava Spa and pools. And at the camper, we could listen to the sound of the river all night long. All the other RV places are so close to the train tracks I would not recommend them. This place is on the other side of the street and the river buffers the train noise. The managers were so wonderful and when our refrigerator went out in the camper, they had no issue with letting us put our food in theirs. I tell you, give this place a try. We camped at Lava Spa Motel & RV in a Truck Camper.
