Amazing!!!!!!! Everything was so clean and nice!

Side by side parking is not my favorite way to camp. Would request to have a regular spot.

Staff is service oriented. Improvement area: work the camping site to make them at level for big rigs. Tx. Adel and their golf course are very nice.

The owners and staff are super friendly! This KOA is sparkling clean and easily accesssible from the highway. This was one of our overnight stops traveling west, and one of our favorites. We will return.

It is always nice to stay at this KOA. Everyone is over-the-top nice. I travel with a camper while I work across the country. They always greet me with smiling faces and keep the place immaculate. I highly recommend the Des Moines West KOA!!

The pizza is awesome, the staff is very helpful and friendly. I had a girls nite out with friends in a deluxe cabin...totally worth it. It was like a slumber party for adults. Lots of fun!

A great place to stay. I don't think there could be a better KOA
Jul 06, 2015
Wow! Cleanest ever. Nicest wide grass space I've seen in a pull thru spot. Lots of kid activities. Even at peak July 4th, Chris and Jamie had smiles all day. The host were fully engaged and were real hosts. I was surprised how quiet camp was at 10 pm. They should call it a "KOA Resort". Other KOA's could learn from them.

Clean and well run by friendly folks. Bathrooms were great and our kids enjoyed the jumping pillow.

The newly remodeled restrooms are beautiful. Staff was friendly and helpful (special thanks to Roxanne and Lowell!) Not a bad one-night stop for some weary travelers.
Jul 03, 2015
Clean restrooms and showers, though it would be nice to have more shower stalls available. Had fun activities for the kids. Well-manicured lawn. Friendly staff. Great overall experience!

Everyone was extremely helpful especially when my schedule changed and they helped to find me another spot to put my camper for the day.

Jamie was very friendly and helpful checking me in and everyone else I met there was as nice as can be. The grounds were pretty and well maintained. I very much enjoyed my stay and will remember Des Moines West KOA in the future! The tent camping area was great. Thanks again!

Its a little far out of town but the facilities are GREAT!

There were no designated camping sites. We were told to pick a spot in a field and there you go. They also advertised no freeway noise which was not the case, I could hear the freeway all night and in general the place was noisy.

Nice cabin and reasonable rate but couldn't figure out how to get the water unit to work. We had arrived after 9 pm and our access information was available on the bulletin board. Perhaps some directions for the water unit could be printed out and taped to the water unit in the cabin so campers would know how to obtain hot/cold water.

Very helpful staff. Campground is clean and the sites are level.
Jun 29, 2015
We had a great time and there are so many things to do and the kids keep busy.
Jun 29, 2015
I loved it there! All of the staff were very friendly and went out of they're way to make our stay nice. The campground was very well taken care of and the bathrooms were immaculate compared to other campgrounds. I would definitely go out of my way to stay there again!!
