Campground Reviews

Aug 08, 2014
We were rained out our first night because our tent failed us. These people were very understanding and refunded the three nights we were planning on staying but could not because of the weather.

Everyone was so very nice and helpful and most of all friendly! If we come back to Iowa we will stay here again! My daughter loved the pillow!

Campground was full but we were given a 15 electric tent site. The staff was very helpful in getting us set up. Thank you for a good night's rest.

Hosts were very accommodating. Great stay & I'm sure we will be back again & I've already recommended this KOA Des Moines West to friends.

Overall a great campground, lots of activities. There are only 2 negative things to mention: 1) permanent local campers seem to believe rules do not apply to them ( IE: quiet time) Because they are such a large group and are there every weekend, they do not realizing there are travelers wanting a good night sleep. With a pop up camper or camper with tent end bunks, the sounds of voices and music

Very busy weekend. Bathrooms quite nasty. Very hard to get aroung campground with stroller or wheelchair because of the large gravel rocks, would be great if they paved the place. Paying for kids to jump on pillow seems not good and is very expensive compared to other KOAs that don't charge for it. Planned kids activities: poor, girl on phone whole time no interact w/ kids & didn't have supplies.

Staff was friendly. Grounds and facilities were clean and well cared for. Very happy with our stay.

I was very upset when we arrived. All the amenities that we had booked for (pillow, gem sluice) were additional charges. The pool was gross, paint rubbed off and bare concrete showing with the sides and deck all cracked. The garbage dumpsters were right in front and overflowing for the two days we were there, smelled horrible! Fishing pond is part of wastewater treatment lagoons! TERRIBLE!

Wanted to try the pool, but the hours. It was closed by 9 pm. When we had chance to use pool it was too busy full of kids. We did like that we could come late and had key waiting for our cabin. Wish beds were larger. Full size too small.

Wonderful experience. Camp hosts were great, we wanted to book another night but the campground was booked solid, the camp hosts said that even after check out we were more than welcome to stay and use the pool and other facilities. Also, sleeping cabins were very clean, kids loved jumping pillow and gem sluicing.

Cabin was very clean and new looking. Campground was quiet and far enough from the 80 to not hear the traffic. Needed better wifi. Even Email was difficult and slow and unreliable.
Aug 02, 2014
Wifi could be better, more toilets, and showers, paper towels so I can clean up after myself.

I specifically noted when I made the reservation to have a campsite big enough for my car with 5'x9' trailer. I was put into the north campsites where my total area was no larger than a parking space. All designated parking areas were already full and I could not do anything but back my trailer inches from the water pipe and fire put just so I could have room for my one man tent. Too small!

Very friendly staff, clean location. Fishing pond could be better. Caught more sticks than fish. Kids loved the pillow and carts.

Even no policy on red VK, staff exceptional especially young lady that escorted us to site. If you want a job at Port Huron KOA - advise.

Nice campground. Our site was spacious, friendly staff, and the camp store was really nice. They just built a new shelter house and had lots of activities for the weekend. The pool could use a makeover. I would definitely stay here again.

Cleanest restrooms, pool and sitting room we have experienced at any KOA from Washington to Iowa. Friendly staff and many amenities that people really like. Our group of 2 adults and 5 teenagers had a great stay. Thanks

The pool was not very clean and the cost of ice & supplies were probably doubled that you could buy at a Walmart.

We had a great time. Look forward to returning for another stay. The 2 children we had with us loved all the activities. Things were well planned. Thanks for a great camping weekend

We arrived on a fully packed weekend w/o reservation. Management kindly fit our small motorhome in the tenting area and hook us up with water. The only complain is the odor in the bathroom/pool area.
