We have been here only once but we had an amazing time. The staff was very helpful. Clean place and they have all the equipment to rent. It was a bit expensive for the day (skiing) but we would go back. Great place to take the kids!!

We took our kids 8 and 6 skiing on a Saturday afternoon. They haven't been skiing before so we spent a lot of time on the bunny slope. They have instructors all over that hill that help any and everyone to ski for FREE! Their patience is excellent and they really do want you to excel and do it correctly.... More

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
