It was my first time staying at a KOA, and it was a wonderful experience. All the staff were super friendly and helpful, and the bathrooms and showers were very clean. We had a great time!

The camp ground was Nice. The sites large and level. Could have used more help in the office, the one lady couldn't keep up with registrations, purchases and pizza orders.

This is one of the friendliest KOA's we're ever stayed. The park was clean and beautiful and the sites were long, wide and level. All hookups were in perfect condition.

Very good KOA - easy to get to. Needs a bit of updating to compare to others we stayed at along our journey, but overall pretty nice. Wondering why the parking to cabins requires campers to negotiate trees and bushes to get to your cabin.

We only stayed one night but the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the grounds were well kept and we really appreciated the fenced dog run!

Have been here before and found it to be satisfactory. Quiet location; easy on/off I-80. Close to West Des Moines/shopping/restaurants. This stay was 1 night over the Memorial Day weekend and I think every site was occupied. A bit noisy and many rude guests surrounded us, but it is not the fault of the Kampground, just weekend warriors that are selfish, and inconsiderate. Would stay again!!!

Very nice staff, clean campground but in a middle of nowhere with no activities around. Nice for overnight stay on road trip. We were there in a motorhome. Sylvie and Denis :o)

KOA is the perfect place for friends and family of all ages to be together for some good, wholesome fun and bonding time!

Great little koa campground, we have stayed here before. They have done a very good job on the improvements they have done. I wish they could control the weather a little better.

This whole group does it right!! They are all so awsome and want your stay to be perfect. I have often thought of how great it would be to have a campground and treat your guests like family and I would do it just like this group. My only suggestion would be to put a park bench or two in the play ground area so parents have a place to sit while the kids play.Thanks from the Addys

Can't praise this KOA too highly. We had such a delightful time there, we are planning a trip back in July. Although our children are grown there was enough there to delight children of all ages, including my husband. Chris & Amy were wonderful and their workers were a delight. We can't recommend this too highly. Jo & John Westhoff

Lovely campground and helpful staff. We stayed in one of the new cabins and loved it. We hope to stay again in the future when traveling west.

friendly hosts, grounds ok

Trés silencieux et reposant

A little more shady areas for the tents would be good. A decent walking path would be a good addition as well.
May 22, 2013
very helpful and friendly staff

Very nice campground. Wish they had cable.
May 21, 2013
We had a bad night when we camped in our tent the first night, due to drinking campers, and noisy campers who set up camp after we were in bed. Once we switched to a cabin, it was great! The owner is very personable and accomodating. Very clean bathrooms and cabins. We'll probably stay again next year (we are from WI), but not tenting!

On the website there are 2 prices. We have a small, 24 ft, motor home. The place had plenty of spaces open and they charged us the most expensive price for one night. Not happy with that.

Always great camping at Des Moines West KOA. Chris and Jamie always make you feel welcome. We have been out there twice this season already and I am sure we will be out a couple more times this season.
