We've had very, very good experiences with KOA properties across the country and thought this would be the same for a trip to the Iowa State Fair. We were right. We chose a camping cabin that had a half-bath. The cabin was in excellent condition including the bath. The air conditioner was a bit noisy at night, but those window... More

Good checkin with friendly folks on desk. We were assisted to our site and he helped us drive in so we didn't touch the slide of the next RV. We set up and when our slide was extended we were about 18 inches from the next door 's slide! On the opposite side the neighbours had company and they were... More

Surprising quiet for being full. Ok sites. Only issue was really no wifi, but we enjoyed the cable channels. Very nice and helpful staff. Good location. Store well stocked and reasonably priced. I liked the trash pick up at the campsite.

We arrived just before closing. They helped us get to our spot and it was perfect. We had one of the shared spots (I think that is what it is called) but we did not share it with anyone. They had everything we needed and looks like a great place for families to come who wanted to vacation in this... More

Stayed here on the way home from Sturgis. Clean and quiet with no issues. Staff was friendly. Stray cat got into trash. We chased him off twice. Deluxe pad was nice as neighbors invited us over to use theirs. Pizza delivery is a nice touch. We may consider sometime when we don't want to cook. Easy in and out of... More

While most KOA's seem to be going downhill this one is a gem. We always stay here when passing through this area. Sites are a nice size and all are level. This year the only one available was a patio site. It was absolutely beautiful, sorry that it rained and we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful furniture. Our granddaughter... More

We've tent camped a couple times now at this KOA and we really enjoy the location. It's close to home for us, but still a nice getaway with all the things to do and the fabulous staff! We love the hospitality, but also all the things that there are for the kids, including activities and the pool.

This is a review for people who tent camp: I have tented at KOA campgrounds all over the country and have experienced my share of great ones and not-so-great ones. The KOA in West Des Moines is at the top of the list for these reasons: 1. Courteous and helpful staff 2. Clean and renovated bathrooms 3. Multiple activities for... More

We limped into this campground with a broken awning. Friendly staff immediately began to phone nearby RV repair shops. Then the guy escorting us to the site got his ladder and removed the broken awning so that we could resume travel. Has a lot of activities for the kids.

This is a great place to stay while travelling west. No highway or train noise and the bathrooms were very nice. 30 minutes west of Des Moines. They have a pool and a jumping pillow. This is a great place for kids since they have so may activities.
