We had a girls weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff is always so friendly and the accommodations are impeccable! Definitely will be back!

We had a great two day stay in a 4 person camping lodge! When we arrived the host was very helpful and pleasant. The lodge was immaculate and welcoming. Our kids made many new friends. They had a blast! They throughly enjoyed the numerous kid friendly activities and the bounce pillow. We plan to return soon!

Friendly and helpful staff, truly full hookup, well kept pull-thrus. There were plenty of relevant activities to do for the kids and adults alike. Some areas were under construction so those activities were not available.

Nice new campground. As expected, the staff were very courteous and helpful. Conveniently located close to Interstate 80 and the Bridges of Madison County. Looking forward to staying at this KOA again as the ground's greenery matures.

We were in Des Moines for softball tournaments so we didn't get a chance to take advantage of all there was to do but seemed like there was a lot to keep families entertained. It was very clean and well kept campground. We've been here before and would always stay here if in the area. Our games went late and they were so kind to let us check out a few hours late. Great people and great place too!!

This was the second time we stayed at this KOA. They have added soooo many fun things to do for the kiddos. I even had a flat tire they helped me with. Great place to stay and great hosts!!!

I got a call ahead to say I had been upgraded from tent to camper since the bathroom Reno was going on but I was so grateful since it was rainy and cold when I got there!
Apr 22, 2015
One of the cleanest campgrounds that We have been in. Every staff member I met was very friendly.
Apr 22, 2015
Our original site was given away in error. We were put in the back next to a very old camper in poor condition. They had a hound dog in the back of their pick up that howled every time we walked our dog.
Apr 20, 2015
Site was under construction. Wish we were told that when we made our reservations.

Nice new cabin, very clean. Was pleased to see dishes and coffee maker, soap and dish towels. Better than a hotel!

Very nicely situated by the body of water. Sites were neat and well maintained. The staff went above and beyond being helpful when our camper developed a problem while on site.

Easy on/off for a big rig!!

Beautiful campground, helpful, friendly hosts. Far enough from Des Moines Metro area and interstate to be quiet, yet close enough to be convenient. We are Full-timers and plan on using your campground as our "home base" when in the area from now on!

We only stayed one night but it was very clean and quiet!
Apr 06, 2015
Nice wide sites, pleasant and knowledgeable hosts. VERY quiet, away from the main highway but easy to get to.
Apr 05, 2015
Very nice and friendly staff. We were there early in the spring so they were doing their spring cleanup but the park has a great potential. We would stop back and stay again.
Apr 04, 2015
Very surprised after staying there a year ago much of the camp ground is still not functional including bath rooms, cable and wifi was unusable.
Apr 03, 2015
Thanks so much for the upgrade and the great time to grade all the papers that needed to be done. I WILL be back.

I stayed in a tent site, with electricity, on Sept.4. They were prepared for my late arrival. Washrooms were very clean. Wireless internet worked well at my site. The picnic shelter was great on a drizzly morning! Thanks!!
