Stayed 2 nights with 30' fifth wheel in adjoining spot with friends. If only high class hotels provided this type of outstanding service! Staff and owners were very visible during entire visit...ALL were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and personable. The grounds are kept up daily and are extremely well-kept. Great dog park, playground, pool and trampoline. We're looking forward to bringing... More

This was our first experience of a KOA, and it was a good one. Very friendly and helpful owners and staff, we were escorted to our site and offered any necessary help. The facilities were clean, as was the general campsite. It’s obviously well looked after, and we would stay here again.

People make the difference. Finding someone with a Canadian Background who enjoys their work and wants to serve makes all the difference. The road closed sign as you drive up the paved country road is off-putting but you get to the park before the bridge they're replacing. Sites are much wider than usual though graded gravel and set up in... More

We visited here in October 2012 in a 39 foot fifth wheel. The staff was very friendly, the site is spacious and very clean and well kept. At the time there was no cable, but we used our own satelite anyway, so this was not an issue. We have small dogs, and there are great areas to walk your dogs.... More

We were traveling from Wisconsin to The Grand Tetons for a wedding. This was our first stop. Clean, friendly and dog friendly. Sites were typical KOA, but campground is located in quiet rural area. I and our dogs loved the walk around the beautiful pond.

We stayed in a deluxe cabin at the end of May (2 adults, 2 kids), and loved it. Great grilling area and firepit...if we had known the weather was going to be good, we would have camped, as it has nice, grassy spots for tent camping. Plenty to keep the kids entertained: basketball, playground, ladderball, and a large grassy area... More

We stayed in one of the Kamping Kabins for one night on our road trip. The location is right off the Interstate which is convenient, but a little noisy. The staff was very friendly and the restrooms and cabin were very clean.

We recently spent one night in a camping lodge at the Adel KOA. Check in was very fast, and the two employees working the front desk friendly. The camping lodge had a bedroom with double bed, and a small closet-like room with one set of bunk beds. My twins slept in the bunk beds, and thought it was really neat... More

We stayed one night on business passing through Iowa. The campground is in a VERY rural area. No real food choices .. pre-made pizza or Subway were really the only options and they were several miles away from the campground. We have a suburban and tow a 20 foot cargo trailer. They had no tent sites due to the size... More

We stayed here last weekend and had a great time. The Koa is perfect for families or just pulling in and staying a nite. Very close to our place in Urbandale...staff was very nice. I would like to see more trees for shade but overall everthing was great. We made plenty of campfires for meals but it was nice to... More
