Loved our cabin, will stay again.

Had a nice spot, very friendly, helpful staff. Didn't care to have to pay for the grandkids to ride the bikes/trikes and use the trampoline pillow but they enjoyed the amenities. Bathrooms were very clean. We will plan to return. Thanks!

Such a fun and friendly place!! So many amenities and activities. The store and pizza shop is a fantastic plus. Fire pits and grills are a bonus!

Nice facility and they are obviously working to make it even better.

just what we wanted for our first camp out of the season. quiet. it could have been warmer but that isn't the KOA's fault:-)

We were visiting relatives and it was nice to have great campground to stay.

We had fun like always! One issue was the store wasn't open during the normal 9a-9p. It was only open 9a-11a then 3p-7p. Which made it very difficult if we were planning a meal of their pizza and didn't bring extra food. Luckily we went in right before 7p on that Friday and caught them right before they closed. I just wish this would've been posted online ahead of time, Facebook or website.

Only complaint was the height of the sewer connection it did not drain well at all. We stayed there in a 5th wheel. Very level sites wide and long overall pretty KOA. Would stay there again.

Great stopping point on our way home to St. Paul, MN. Looking into possibility of an extended family camping vacation at the resort.

This is a lovely newer park, great sites, we didn't use a cabin but they look very nice! Peaceful rural setting not far off 80. Small mix up with our check in but they made it right.

You need to be able to log on to their WIFI without the world knowing your location.


I'm sorry for the confusion Daniel, but logging into our free wifi has two options. You can check-in via facebook or enter our wifi password totally separate from facebook. Either method works perfectly...sorry this wasn't clear.

Great place to stay and will visit again. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is because the grill that is provided on the deluxe site was very dirty and no gas. Had to use my own bottle. Management was great and friendly. Campsite had some construction going on but it wasnt making our stay unpleasant. Great job!...
Apr 10, 2017
I would come back any day

This my 4th stay at KOA. The staff is always very nice. The improvements are great. My friends come to visit and have a great time. I will keep coming back.
Apr 09, 2017
Very nice up and coming place. Every time we visit they have improved the site even more and next year they will have winter sites so that we can stop on the way down to Florida in December. Whoppy!

A GREAT place to stay if one wants all amenities, such as super clean modern restrooms, trash pick up. Firewood delivery, and lots of activities for children. It is pricey, as are all KOAs. What we spent for three nights here, would buy two weeks at a Corps of Engineers camp. We stayed here because other campgrounds were not yet opened. Very friendly staff.

The KOA was great to stay at when traveling out West. Would stay here again if this locale was where I needed to spend the evening once again. Thanx!

It was enjoyable. My family has decided that we need to camp here earlier in the year though.

A tous les KOA ou J'ai séjourné, le WIFI était de très mauvaise qualité. Il y aurait amélioration a apporter puisque vous faites votre publicité que l'accès WIFI est disponible, ce qui était rarement le cas. Pour le reste les KOA sont de bon terrains de campings.

We had a wonderful time. We would definitely stay again. Plenty of activities for the kids. We will be back.

Even though they were going to close the next day we would have stayed a week, it was that nice. Everyone who was working there, was extremely nice and friendly, it had everything you could ask for and very pet friendly, one of the nicest if not the nices dog parks (2) anywhere we have stayed ! AWESOME

If I could give 10 stars, I would! We love staying here and so do my Grandkids. The staff is wonderful, the park itself is always well kept, clean and something new everytime we stay!

We love this KOA! The pull-through spaces are large with lots of room. The owners and staff are SO friendly and we love all of the planned activities. This KOA is so clean and is surrounding by rolling hills and fields. Iowa living at it's finest!

Great experience at this KOA. Last spring I had 3 bad experiences at KOA's on our way back to MI. I called the main office at KOA and no reply. I didn't renew my membership I had for years. Decided to take a chance at this KOA...worked great.

Your grounds are impeccable and it was our pleasure to stay at your site.My only wish was to stay longer.
Oct 28, 2016
Lovely clean park with nice level sites. Loved that the Kamp K9's were right behind our trailer. Would stay here again.
Oct 28, 2016
Superb service! We've stayed here a couple of times and find it to be very clean, and great pull thru spaces! Always working on updating and building something new! Highly Recommend it!
