Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

We were at Lava Hot Springs, Idaho, originally for 3 days to soak in the mineral pools, but left after 2 days.  The pools were great, 5 pools ranging from 102 to 120 degrees.  No odors, as no sulfur is in the water. The pools are very nice and the park itself is full of flowers. Very relaxing and it was only $5.00 on weekdays and $6.50 on weekends.  You could stay from 8 a.m. until 11 p.m., or come and go, as we did.
The KOA campground was awful.  They are so old that you had fuses, instead of circuit breakers at every site.  The first night our power went off at 6 a.m. and I went out in my pajamas to checked the box and found that the fuse had blown.  I called the office and left a message on their answering machine, telling them that we had no power.  At 9 a.m., I went to the office when it opened and asked if they got my message.  The girl on duty said that she didn't know where the answering machine was!  She gave me a fuse to try.  She called the owner and they did not answer the phone.  She went to their home and they sent a teenager down with a voltage meter.  It showed low voltage. Okay, now we have power.  That evening, the A/C in our camper went off, flipping the breaker in our RV.  I guess using an A/C unit draws too much power at this antiquated park.  Fed up, we left the next morning, giving up a days paid reservation, just to save our electrical equipment.  This KOA really sucked.
