We had a wonderful time at KOA this last weekend. My 2 daughters enjoyed all of the activities and especially the pool. Can't wait to come back again soon! Thank you!

We had a wonderful time. Great kids activities and the owner went out of his way to get us a spot when someone parked in the wrong spot and then left.All in all it was a great place to camp. Will positivily camp there again.

KOA West Des Moines is very clean and kid friendly - they loved the swimming pool and fishing pond.

The staff are very nice. The campground was well kept and clean. We enjoyed the pool and dog park. The only disappoint is no cable. On-site laundry was good to have also.

Not a good choice for tenting - no level spots to set up the tent and no nearby water because the underground water main to the tent area is broken.

When we checked in there was another camper on our reserved spot. We paid extra for a larger end campsite. The manager said that they had been trying to get them to move and they would not. We were then taken to a small spot. The water valve was defective, and long story short- resulted in our camper completely flooding. We are devastated and will not be back.

Friendly, clean, quiet and a beautiful pond. Very relaxing dog walk area which is important to us as we always travel with our 2 large dogs. I do believe they enjoyed this KOA the most. Thank you for a wonderful start to our trip to Grand Teton N.P.

Your facility was very good. We were only there long enough to sleep. It was quite noisy and we definitely noticed that the 10 PM "cut the noise off" was not enforced. Otherwise all was well.

Kamping Kabins need to be kept on the cool side as the humidity is a killer.

This was our first time staying at this KOA. We really liked it. The cabin was clean and cozy. The pizza delivered to our site was excellent and so convenient after our long drive.

Really appreciated the large clean fenced dog area. Bella needed a place to run after being in rv for a week and on leash.

Absolutely loved the dog park as my dog is a runner and it gave him a chance to run free.

Very friendly and comfortable. Would certainly stay again and will recommend to family and friends in Australia.

This is a very packed in camp. No shade trees for tent camping with electric hook ups. Beautiful dog park (great shaded area). Friendly hosts. Fun activities.

This CG was a dust bowl, by the time we got to our site, going as slow as we could, the back of our coach was covered with dust from the road, the wifi did not work even when they said it was fixed

Excellent family fun all day long. Very clean campground.

After checking in I told my husband that the owner (woman) was the nicest person I had ever experienced helping me at a KOA. We had an absolutely wonderful time-from the wine tasting to the ice cream social, to our 3 time walk around the campground. We could have even ordered pizza which was very tempting.The cabin was clean & smelled like someone made sure it had not been closed up all day.
