It is located about 5 miles North of Lava townsite off of Blazer Hwy. The residences are a mix of full time and vacation homes. The lots range from 2-5 acres.

Lava West is a nice little subdivision nestled in a valley with nice views and it is very quiet. Located about 2 miles west of Lava, it was once a farm field that has been divided into building lots. The lots range from just over an acre to 2 acres. They are on a county maintained gravel road and can be accessed year-round. The road is a little overgrown right now because the lots have not been built on, the county has not kept it up to par, but will once the lots get built on. This subdivision has irrigation rights, so the lots to have irrigation use. The lots themselves do not have rights, but each lot is allowed to use the water. These lots also have Natural Gas and Power is on the road so you can connect to it easily. Each lot will need to have its own Well for Domestic and home use and a Septic system installed.

Moose Hollow is located about a Mile off Merrick Rd, about 2 miles out of the townsite of Lava Hot Springs. They are West of the Golf Course, and South of Lava west. These lots range from 5 acres to 10 acres. These lots do not come for sale that often. They are heavily wooded and in lower elevation, so you can get to them earlier in the year and later into the year as well. These lots could be year-round access if you plowed the road. The road is 1-2 miles depending on the location of the lot.
Lava Ranch is located about 1-2 miles South of Lava Hot Springs townsite off of Dempsey Creek Road. Each lot is about 5 acres. You have to own land in the subdivision in order to have a key. There is a $250.00 association fee. It is for road maintenance. The roads are not winter maintained, so by regular vehicle (4 wheel recommended), it is accessible from Mid May to End of October. Many owners use Snowmobiles, Cats or Mules with tracks to get to their lots in the winter. In the Spring, the roads will be graded and graveled. The majority of the lots are heavily wooded with Pines and Aspens. There is lots of wildlife, Deer, Elk, Turkeys, and Bobcats (they don’t bother you, but there are sightings). Each lot will need or has its own well. The depth depends on the location of the lot. We can research that when a lot is narrowed down, but the average is about 200 feet. Some lots have springs and many owners use holding tanks as well. The Pavilion has a water station to fill campers and Holding tanks. Each lot will need or has a septic system. Depending on the location, the lots may or may not have power. Rocky Mountain Power has been putting in power the last couple of years, so more and more lots will have power in the road to connect to. ATV’s are acceptable on the roads. There are a few common area locations, but most of the area is private ground. To access public ground to 4-wheel or snowmobile, you can go across to Thunder Mountain Ranch or Dempsey Creek, which is a few miles away. You do not have to build on these lots, you can camp, park and RV or build. The CCR’s say you must build 100 feet away from the property line so that it feels more like a forest, rather than a subdivision.

Building on these lots is not necessary. You can use it to camp with a tent, park a camper, or build a cabin. You can put in septic & drill a well if you would like as well to hook your campers up to when you are there. A lot of people do this. Power is not too many of these lots, but if it is there, you can also have a meter installed to plug your camper into it. People will bring their campers up around May and then leave them all summer until September. You will not want to leave them all winter unless you build a pavilion cover for the snow load. The roads are not winter maintained, so unless you want to snowmobile, snowshoe or have a CAT, then you will not be able to access the lot when the snow starts to fall. Thunder Mountain Ranch is a gated subdivision with gate code you enter when you want to get into the area. This is nice so you do not have a lot of traffic coming up, or people trying to camp on your lot when you are not up there to use it. There is a $75.00 yearly association fee for road maintenance in the Spring to get the roads re-graded and graveled from the winter and runoff.
Indian Falls is a continuance from Lava Hills, so the information is the same EXCEPT Some of the roads are not County maintained off of Pheasant Dr, but most of the lots are still accessible year-round. There is a $100.00 association fee. This is to get the roads located off of Pheasant Dr. up to county standards each year so the county will eventually take them over. Some lots do not have power on the road, so we will have to double-check. (Most that are listed right now do have power).

Pine Haven is located about 5 miles South of Lava Hot Springs townsite off of Dempsey Creek Road. Each lot is about 3 acres. It is a smaller subdivision with only a few homes built in it. There is CCR’s, and an association. It has been an established subdivision for quite some time, but they are still working on some things. The road is not maintained year-round, but they are working on getting it up to county specs so the county will take it over. I am not sure where the process is at this time. Currently, if the road needs plowed, they hire a local man to do it and the residences divide that cost in the winter. These lots are not wooded but have great views and lots of Deer and Moose that wander through. Power is on the main road. (Rocky Mountain Power) The lots will need wells and septic systems. The Well depth will vary depending on location, but on average is about 100-150 feet.
