We found this place in the KOA book and it looked very inviting. The registration was easy they lead you to your space. The pool looked full and kids having fun. They offered us a bigger spot then usual for a few extra dollars and it was worth it as we had a corner space with lots of room, a... More

This is one of the best KOA facilities we have seen, even though it is a small rv park. Of course the prices reflect the few Des Moines area rv parks. Lots to do but some of the extras cost extra. Pool was good. If you don't like having you neighbor 3 feet away, don't take a 30amp "buddy" site... More

We have been to this KOA several times. Hauling a large Fifth wheel, their spots are flat and easy to get in and out of. Staff are helpful, and on top of everything. Several activities for little ones to do! Love the heated pool! Great buddy sites! Couldnt ask for a better getaway close to home!

We stayed here three nights and it was a very nice, quiet place to be! We could have given this a 5 rating except for the fact that our site was not level and we were sitting in about an inch of water with algae growing in it. We did speak to them about this and they offered to move... More

This is the first KOA we've stayed at and we had a great experience. We rolled in late - about 8:45 pm - and had no trouble checking in and getting to our spot.

We are in town for a family wedding and decided to camp instead of doing the hotel thing. We are so glad we did. The deluxe cabin (sleeps 4) has a full bathroom and a kitchenette. The kitchen is stocked with some basic supplies that we packed just in case not realizing they would be provided. AC was a blessing... More

This KOA advertised a jumping pillow and other fun things. When we arrived we learned it was an additional $10 per kid for a fun pass. I was really irritated. I think the website should incident additional charges when it's applicable. The place was very clean and workers were very kind. For those reasons I would go back and maybe... More

Wow.. Talk about a cut above! Nice sites. Although they could use more trees, the ones they have are huge and beautiful. All sites are at the perfect angel so RV will shade it's own front side, anyway. The staff is extremely nice. Laundry's open 24 hours and reasonable. Pool, hot tub and grounds are immaculate!
