Once again a long drive to a great KOA cabin. Campground was nice and clean. Showers were clean. Great wings for diner which were delivered to our cabin. It had AC & I would stay again.

We have stayed at this KOA for a few days in each of the past few years. The staff is always friendly and helpful. It seems that each year a new feature is added that helps to make your stay more enjoyable.

Very clean and well organized. Easy RV access. Missed the TV hookup especially with so many weather storms moving rapidly throughout the country.

Fun activities on the Saturday night we arrived. Well kept up. Nice park, dog park, horseshoes etc. Clean bathrooms/showers, heated pool was a plus for the kiddos!

We had a great time and have already booked to return next month. The cabin was beautiful and perfect for our needs! Your staff is so friendly and personable. We felt completely at home.

It was a pretty plain site with nothing special to do or see. Not bad but not worth the price except for the Pizza on site. No Cable or Wifi. Very clean. There were some nearby attractions like the Covered Bridges of Madison County and the birth place of Daniel Boone but all were quite a drive.

Very nice campground although there is a shortage of shade trees. Location off the highway and size of spaces more than makes up for lack of trees. Great dog park and nice playground and pool for kids. Will definitely stay there again!

Site hadn't been leveled yet for the season. Owner did get several pay-loaders of gravel and got it much more level and usable. Nice people. Clean park.

I liked the personal attention I received upon arrival. The staff made the difference.......very nice group of people.

This was the third of three times we had attempted to stay at a KOA durning our 2week trip. The first KOA was a fine example of the quality we normally expect from KOA. Then we stayed at several other campgrounds. The next KOA we attempted to stay at was so much a nightmare that we got our money back and left within the first hour. Then some other campgrounds. Then we decided to try another KOA.

50 amp power did not work. Site unlevel and very soft, jacks sank 4 inches into ground even with jack pads. Internet unusable.

I would have rated this Kampground higher, except for the sewer connections. The pipe sits several inches above the ground, on the high side of a slight slope. By the time I added my screw-on 90' the end of the sewer hose was above the sewer connection, so I wasn't able to empty my tanks. Other than that, a very pleasant site with great staff.

We always stop when in the area

What a great staff! We felt very welcomed and enjoyed our stay.

Friendly escort to site, easy in & out exit. Friendly staff.
Jun 04, 2013
pool too small to be so deep. The sites are really roomy and it is a great location to visit Des Moines.
Jun 04, 2013
And pet friendly!
