Needs updating of the showers if you are the ones that had the broken floors in the shower that someone could get their feet hurt in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have red mats in our showers to keep everyone's feet off the tiles, and we also don't have any broken tiles. :)

Great people, but sure needed that cup of coffee at 8. YOu open to late in the morning, if we need something last minute from your store. All else was perfect.

We enjoyed looking for John Wayne's birthplace and the bridges of Madison Co., which weren't too far from this location. It does sit on a hillside so parking was a bit of a balancing act.

We stayed here 1 night in 2012 as we were just passing through the area. We returned this year and spent three nights and had a terrific time visiting the bridges of Madison County, the Iowa Aviation Hall of Fame, the Freedom Rock, and the Blank Park Zoo. Great location for getting out to see the many sights in the area.

We loved this koa. The staff was friendly and helpful. The site was awesome andbpeaceful with cornfields all around. Our dog loved the dog run area to play ball . Our kids enjoyed playing basketball,horseshoes,fishing at the pond. The kids enjoyed the pool too. The bathrooms and laundry area were clean and had plenty of hot water. Mom enjoyed the variety of local wines for purchase.A+koa

We've been staying at this KOA as we pass through for the last 3 summers because of the great dog area. It would be great if they cleaned the bathrooms after the pool closes since they are right next to the pool and get a lot of traffic during the day from wet kids.

The staff was exceptionally friendly & helpful with all aspects of our stay. Loved the available Pizza, loved the wine tasting, loved the Ice Cream Social!! My only criticism is that our site wasn't quite level and we had to utilize blocks to adjust for proper leveling. Otherwise, it was a truly wonderful experience & KOA campground! Thanks!!

I understand your reasoning for putting one night stays up front,but if they request away from the office,you should try to honor the request.

The staff at koa west des moines were very very friendly. The campgrounds are very well maintained. The location was very nice close to interstate bout not too close. I caught some fish in the pond. The pool needs improvement. All in all a very nice stay

Very nice sites, we'll be back! Only thing was the weird sewer placement. In the middle of the site next to the electric box, took an extension hose to reach and that was a stretch.

We stayed for only one night but found the campgrounds to be VERY well kept and clean, also offered a nice place for our two lab's to exercise safely. Look forward to our next visit.

Just an overnight stay, but restrooms were clean. Park was quiet. Wifi could have had a stronger signal.

I stayed in a Camping Cabin alone. I felt safe. Appreciated the night security lights as I walked to the bathroom at night. The pool and bathrooms were clean and cared for. Would have loved to try the pizza and wings. Maybe next time! Thanks, Carla Gray
