first stay at a KOA in a long time, and it was nice. Kids had a great time in the pool and that staff was friendly and helpful.

The camp owners are incredibly friendly and helpful--love that! I love the ice cream socials, the wine tasting, and the activities. The campsites were a little crowded and hot with so few trees, but the people were so nice they made it all worth it :)

A terrific campground close to home. Kids love the pool, dog loves the dog park and organized kids activities on the weekend keep the kids occupied.

It was to far from where we needed to be in Des Moines. We were told by KOA it was 10 miles when it was 22 miles.

Very nice and well kept campground. The lady at the office was very friendly and helpful helping me renew my membership. I would be happy to reccomend this KOA to all.

The cabin was incredibly clean and had to have been new. It was perfect for our family of 4 and the patio area was just as nice as the cabin. My husband's only comment was that for the price of a hotel it would be nice to have a better mattress. We also enjoyed the organized activities throughout the weekend. Very family friendly!

The customer service was horrible. The lock on our cabin was broken and we were not informed of that. We were traveling with a baby and did not feel safe unable to lock the door. The staff didn't seem to care and just told us the Adel, IA is safe. We had to force a solution and told them we need a bar or something to put in the track so the door would not open. They finally gave us something.

PROS: had a great campsite, easy check in, employees willing to help, store had everything one needed CONS: Bathrooms needed paper towels along with the air blowers. The paper towels would give guests the opportunity to wipe up water spills and just plain clean up after themselves! WOULD STAY AGAIN - THANK YOU

I liked the extra activities for the kids and the campground was very clean. The store could have been stocked a little better and open earlier in the morning.

This was a stop on our way to a final destination (where we'll be for 7 weeks). It was a nice KOA, but further from the freeway than we prefer to stay. Because of that, if we were traveling through the area again, we'd try to find something closer to the highway 35 freeway.

The Kabin was clean but advertised amenities were not provided. The showers were ICE COLD. There was a sign that said to allow 2 minutes for the water to heat up but it never warmed up. The wifi was so slow and intermittent that it was impossible to even check email. The Kabin electricity was cut around 8am so we had no lights or air conditioning while packing up.

Great staff. Beautiful campground. As a dog owner, I loved the big dog run. My dogs were able to burn off energy by playing with other dogs.

Although we were there only one night we enjoyed our stay. Free from mosquitoes, fish in the pond. I fly fish and they took two of my flies, most likely because I didn't tie them one right. We will certainly be back when we are going in that direction.

friendly staff, but we seemed to share a site with another popup camper. Could have shook hands with them we were so close.

Great place for overnight stay along I-80. Quiet. Very friendly staff; nice touches like wine tasting & ice cream social.
