I've been here for 2 events in the last two years. Very much enjoyed both. This area had other services which I didn't have an opportunity to sample but they did put on an excellent obstacle course mud race two years in a row.

A great day of fun for two moms with boys ages 9 and 10! The staff is amazing and helpful too! We took the 9:30 canoe trip number 1 and we took our time stopping to skip rocks, explore sandbars, pick up shells and find treasures! An amazing way to spend your day outdoors!!!

Went sledding there last winter and had a blast! Easy enough for me (61) and hub (73) yet wild enough for young-in's. Their lodge is beautiful and great food and drinks, an overall feeling of happiness and excitement. Skiing and Snowboarding too! We live right next to where they bring their canoe rentals and tubers. They are extremely friendly, experts... More

You can ski. You can snowboard. It's a great place to take kids in the winter when everyone has cabin fever. They make snow and offer ski lessons.

We are from an area of the country that rarely sees snow let alone enough to tube or ski. The relatives we were visiting brought us here and the kids had a blast. Two hours of tubing was $18 per person which I thought was quite reasonable. Had this not been our last day we would have come back and... More

These guys do great work. We went on a weekday on a beautiful summer day, the equipment is adequate, the service is better than you'd expect, the river is perfect for a family float.

My buddy and brother had a joint bachelor party in the Des Moines area. Instead of the typical golf game, I decided to give Seven Oaks a shot for our day event. We definitely were not disappointed! The rates were reasonable, the service was great and the tubes had convenient drink holders already in them! It was an awesome time... More

My husband and I went on a float trip down the Des Moines River and enjoyed it immensely. The staff took us upriver a mile or so and got us into the canoe and off we went. They picked us up downriver later on in the day. Seven Oaks also has snow skiing in the winter and it's always busy.... More

Customer service is excellent! Always very helpful. In fact, I had forgotten to bring my own skiis home with us after a great day of skiing. Two weeks later... More
