Smith's Trout Haven is a Family Friendly campground. This is the perfect place for a weekend away with the kids or an extended family get-together.

A wonderful and relaxing atmosphere to enjoy your time away from home. We're located about a mile west of the busy downtown area. You will enjoy the quiet of the countryside and still be close to the activities of Lava Hot Springs. We have two playgrounds for the kids with wide open grassy areas for games and fun. There is a trout pond located within the campground for fishing activities for both the young and young-at-heart.

We are open from May 1st to September 30th


Smith's Trout Haven is located a little over a mile west of downtown Lava Hot Springs on Main St. The name of the road changes to East Maughan Rd as you pass the Fire station. You will travel straight west. When the road makes an "S" curve, you are almost there. Just past the curve, you will see a bright green building on the left side of the road.
