Welcome to Mary's Place Campground

Located in world famous Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

We are located at 300 Bristol Park Lane in Lava Hot Springs, Idaho. We are walking distance to everything that Lava has to offer but conveniently tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. The Portneuf River surrounds our property on all sides with the exception of beginning at the base of the mountain on the back end of our park. The mountain, trees and the distance provided by the river provide a barrier from the road and train noise that other campgrounds cannot provide. We hope that you will experience Lava’s “Best Kept Secret” for your next visit!
