Standard motel room. Looks like it's still the 1960's. Clean and a good location. Bring your own pillows. You need 2 or 3 of theirs to equal one decent pillow. No place to sit except the bed. Only one small chair. Overall it fit our needs.

Best RV site that we visited on our 10 day trip through Idaho and Montana. Great location on the river and within walking distance to all of the restaurants and activities in town. Recommend floating down the river on a tube. Big fun.

Okay, the bad; this place was probably built in the early 50s and had much of the original doors, lights etc. Very dark with little lighting and very few electic outlets. Not enough parking for rooms. Did I say very dark? The good : very reasonable rates, very close to hot pools (across the street) , walking distance to everything downtown, not bad for clean. We stayed here and had money for something else. It wasn't a real hardship, just not the most sparkling accomadations we've every seen. Would stay again.

We stayed at the RV park in July 2020. The sites are full hookups with 30amp power. Each site had a concrete pad and was gravel everywhere else. Some of the sites back right up to the river, however we were on the back of the motel building. There aren’t a lot of extras, but if you’re just looking for a safe place to have your camper parked to sleep at night after fun activities this place is perfect. The location is very central to all of the fun places in Lava and literally a 2 minute walk to the hot pools. Would definitely stay again.

The RV Park is in a great location. It is right on the river where you can watch the tube riders come by your camp or just sit outside your RV in the shade of the trees and watch the river. It is small with a few sites do reservations are a must. It is very close to town so you can walk to the lava Hot Springs spa pools, you can walk to every restaurant and gift shop, you can walk to the 2 Rental Pl., you name it it’s very close. There is also a short walking path from the end of the park that will take you to a natural hot spring that is absolutely free if you would like to go and sit there and enjoy a natural hot spring.The only criticism I have of the place is that it’s near a restaurant/bar and they play loud music until after 11 PM.
