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

Just attended an outdoor wedding at 7 Oaks and the setting was beautiful. Reception was inside the lodge. A nice place with lots of ambiance. There is plenty of sporting opportunity year round here with tubing, canoeing, and kayaking the DM river nearby and mountain bike trails for warm weather. The ski hill is perfect in winter. Our church had... More

There were nine of us that went tubing-ages 10 to 40. We all had a blast!! The price was reasonable, the staff was friendly. It was a very relaxing day and well worth our time. We will be visiting again soon. We went on a Tuesday morning and had the river to ourselves. The weekends are busier and probably not... More

We just finished our Annual Seven Oaks Family Tubing Trip and as usual we had a absolute blast! The thing that makes Seven Oaks stand out from the rest is the amazing staff they employ. From the front desk girls to the bus drivers to the guys helping you get on and off the float. They are kind, helpful, &... More

I took a 8 and 10 year old skiing for the first time at Seven Oaks. The hills were just the perfect size and amount of time for a nice learning experience. The staff and free instructors were very accomodating. Obviously this is not Colorado but if you just want a nice day to learn how to ski or to... More
