I came here to use as a "base camp" to view tomorrow's solar eclipse. I was given a riverside site and I am enjoying it. The price was a little higher than expected. The campground has beautiful surroundings with a easy walk into the town's main street. I would stay here again! We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Motorhome.

KOA's online registration system is always easy, and I love that you get a second reminder confirmation a couple of days before your reservation. It was easy to find, the only small challenge is that once you pulled off the highway into the KOA, it wasn't obvious as where to pull up to register. The check-in process was smooth, and I always like it when they escort you to your site. The roads in the park were ok, we were in a fairly wide pull-through space, that included some grass. There was a little road noise in the park, but not bad. We had 50 amp service, water, and sewer at the site, all worked fine. Not sure if they had cable, as we were only there for 2 nights so didn't even ask about it. Restrooms were good, very clean. I didn't see any permanent residents in the park. One of my favorite things about the park, is that it is within walking distance to some of the hot spring pools. We camped there in a 38' fifth wheel. We will definitely come back.

This used to be an independent campground, but has since been taken over by KOA. There are nice shaded sites along the rivers edge but the sites are very close together. It's also quite expensive! But the upside is that you can very easily walk to the pool across the river. We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Motorhome.

On the side of the park opposite the river where we were, site 27, the rock wall is deteriorating. Fortunately, our 3 children were in the RV when a giant boulder came loose. It fell close enough to our vehicle that the side was covered in mud from the splash. It could have killed a person and/or seriously damaged a vehicle.

Further, customer service was terrible. We purchased tubing passes for our family of 5 (w/ 3 children ages 9 and under) at the KOA. We walked the entire length of the town to the tubing site only to find out that an i.d. is required as calateral for the tubes. Of course knowing we would get wet, we did not have our wallets with us. The tubing company said they had repeatedly asked the KOA to let the customers know, which they obviously did not. Sites are close together and the quiet hours were not enforced. Finally, bathrooms leave something to be desired, although they are supposed to be remodeled in the fall of 2016. We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed are stay here. It was nice to be so close to the swimming pool and town. We stayed by the river and there is hot water from the pools that dump into the river. The kids liked to hangout there, especially after floating the river. You can bring your own tubes or rent them. They have very large trees that make it shady. You can tell this is an old campground and needs some updates. It is almost like it has been passed down the family and now the kids just do what is needed. The staff was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Fifth Wheel.

Our experience here was different than other reviews because in September we were the only RV here. We had some train noise but not after 10 PM, when it was very quiet. It is a close walk to one of two hot springs and not far from the large one. We were able to get DirecTV from our site. Yes, the hookups are old but 50 amps worked fine and we backed in on the grass site with no problem and it was very level. The normal fees here are $45 but during off season in September we paid $33. This time of year this is a decent location for the hot springs that are available. We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Motorhome.

In 25 years of RVing, this was the worst experience we have ever had. It was definitely meant for campers, not RVers. Lots of tenters, dogs and kids run loose throughout the park, everyone walks through others spaces, noisy. It does have lots of shade and is right on the river. May be perfect for families with kids, but not for older RVers. No enforcement of hours. Awful! We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Motorhome.

Our family loved the park and the location by the river and the close to the hot pools in town. The down size is that the spots are too close together and there was no room to open slide out and awning. You had to choose which you wanted to open. The camp was not crowded over Memorial Day weekend as it was snowing and raining. Camp staff was fantastic. We camped at Lava Hot Springs / City Center KOA (formerly Rivers Edge RV & Camping) in a Travel Trailer.

The park was fine. Our site was not level, so it took awhile. Our hook up did not have a 30 amp so had to use a converter. It appeared that there were some units that were there all the time, but it was a nice place, and close to the Hot Springs and other sites. We would return again.
