Campground Reviews

The activities for the kids seemed somewhat disorganized.

Nice park with lots of amenities and close to Des Moines and points of interest.

Very nice campground and friendly staff but kids were running wild with no adult supervision till late. Also they were racing the golf carts filled with 6 kids all around the campground and no one stopped them.

Nice people. Very clean. Loved the dog enclosure. Our dogs needed the exercise after riding for several days. Would probably stay here again just for that facility-and it was clean too!

Very nice Kampground with friendly and helpful staff. Nice amenities. The dog play area is a definite plus. Well off I-80 with no outside noise. Proximity to the "Bridges of Madison County" another plus.

Arrived at noonish and had to self register. Stopped by later when office was open but office couldn't give me my WIFI password. Didn't get back to cg after visiting relatives and office was closed...no WIFI. No cable either and husband didn't like that. We did have shade and appreciated that.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you didn't find the wi-fi information. It's stapled to all our guest guides, but the funny thing is we don't have a password on our internet, so maybe you got us confused with another park. You also will get 15-18 channels on your antenna.

I had a very pleasant stay. Or kids were able to enjoy many activities and our fur babies even had an area to run and play. The campground was very clean and the workers were very nice :)

Loved everything, but BEST of all was your roomy, clean dog park!!
Sep 10, 2013
This is a great stay for people with children. We don't have any, but enjoyed our stay just the same. Everything was well attended. Good pizza.

Wonderful Staff!!!!!

This facility if overcrowded to the extent that there is no privacy. It has potential, but the doubling of campers to the same space makes staying here less than enjoyable. The staff is pleasant and the other facilities were excellent. This is a last resort stop at best.

Not very pretty (grass was just dried up weeds) and nothing special, at all.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Our grass is brown because it hasn't rained in months, but if you come earlier in the season, it's definitely green and lush here in IA.
