Way too expensive

56 bucks for one night and it’s not that nice looking but it’s there and has hookups.

The bees knees

Talk about a great find after taking a wrong turn at free sites with plenty to pick from. When you check out the website make sure you read the whole thing, the guy is hilarious, had my girl and I laughing the whole time, dogs had a blast were able to run around the whole time with out leash,.…

Could spend a month here!

One of best places I’ve been to. I’d definitely recommend several days if you can as some of the trails are pretty challenging though definitely see the spatter cones and the one before it (can’t remember the name but big black hill you can climb even if not in great shape by taking a break every…

Stunning campground in the lava flows

Large rigs park close to the Credit Card Kiosk (only Credit cards accepted) park entry fee is also required some spots are only tent and some are huge. Water was not on and only had vault toilets so fees were less.

  • door view
  • from the entrance the camp sites are visible
  • small rigs back in the back

Great spot

This is a great location. The owner of the property, Scar, is very generous in offering his property for free to stay at to complete strangers. This is dry camping, no water or sewer. There’s a dump station with water close by off the main highway. He does have a few outlets we saw but didn’t use…

Nestled in the lava landscape

Prepare to have your mind blown as you roll in to Lava Flow Campground. It is nestled in the uniquely lunar landscape caused by, well, lava flow. The grounds sit at the entrance of the scenic 7-mile loop that provides access to trails that take you over, under, and around various volcanic…

Camping on different planet

Wonderful campground. Great for star gazing. Sites are scattered across a lava field and represent a unique camping experience. If you find the campground fully booked there is a boon docking site just up the road.

Stunning Spot

An absolutely beautiful place to camp. Black lava rock everywhere. No cell service. No hookups but if you have a generator it’s all good to run it during normal non quiet hours. Vault toilets open in winter. Lots of fun hikes within the park. Sites have grills and can be used for RVs or tents. 15…

This place was great! $8 because water is off for the season, I guess...normally $20. All facilities are closed so it’s just camping and exploring the park which is all within walking distance of the campground. Very friendly ranger working the front! Level sites on pavement. No fires allowed…

Amazing Place to Visit & Stay

National Park campground is non/reservable and first come first served. Sites for RV on asphalt. No showers or laundry facilities but there are restrooms. Trails & visitor center within walking distance. Water available but no hook-ups.

Fantastic dark sky campground

I really don't understand the bad reviews. People complaining there are no rivers or streams or complaining that there are no showers (nps website very clear about that). Sure, if you blindly pulled into this place expecting a KOA you're going to be disappointed. This campground is dry camping.…

As cool as lava rocks, but not worth the fees!

I get it, it looks foreign to those who have never seen a lava field or remnants of volcanos. Somewhere it mentions it was the only one in the continental states... which isnt true! But it is probably the largest for sure. There is a huge area to drive through, and its certainly a sight to see. But…

Great spot to see Craters

We passed through here heading from the Tetons to Oregon. Looks a lot like several other small town KOAs we’ve stayed at. Free waffles for breakfast was a nice touch. We got a site with a large shade tree but many were totally exposed to the sun. Beautiful countryside nearby but not much going on…

Great little free Campground

The guy is welcoming. Nice little place for anyone who’s looking for a nights sleep. Just be mindful of the campground and just relax👍🏼
