We really enjoyed this campground

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.

We have never had to pay for the air-jumping activity at any previous KOA. We do not like being dollared to death to enjoy our stay. Perhaps there should be abase pay for families and those traveling without kids. I understand the need for upkeep, but we'll soon look for other places at this rate.

We had a great time at the KOA. There were tons of activities for our kiddos to do. The staff were friendly and helpful. If we find ourselves in Des Moines again we will be staying at the KOA!

Campground was clean but the campers are stacked in like cord wood. This is the first KOA where we had to share a patch of grass with another camper. The pool desperately needs to be remodeled! Way too small for campground! We swam in the pool first thing in the morning, lots of things floating in it including a frog. Lifted hand out a water and along came long hairs..gross!

Quiet hours were not enforced and my husband bruised up his leg running into a water spicket at night that someone drove over and hadnt been properly marked as a hazard or fixed.

We had a fantastic time at the KOA in Adel. The facilities were clean, activities were fun, and everyone was happy to help. We will definitely be going back often and recommending this camp ground to family and friends!

Pool was disgusting!!! Dirty and not skimmed at all! Also, it was breaking apart. Sharp concrete on bottom and along sides cutting kids feet up.
Jul 22, 2014
This time we stayed in the little camping cabin. It was fine for one night as we had 4 people total- kinda fun really. Loved the covered front porch area. The kids loved all the activities especially the new jumping pillow.

While the staff was extremely helpful in allowing us to change sites from a very muddy site to a slightly better one, the campgroung was not maintained up to usual KOA standards. The roads and sites need more gravel, and the pool is crumbling. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Friendly staff. Waved anytime they drove or walked by our site. Very impressed by Saturday nights story teller, she did a fantastic job.

The grounds are clean and well kept. Bathroom and laundry facilities are clean. The pool is nice but could use some work. We stayed on an electric tent site. It was very narrow with no shade. If I go back, I definitely would choose a different site. Overall great except for the barking dogs all night long. A place that is very pet friendly, too bad the pet owners weren't more respectful of others

Beautiful location, friendly staff, and sites had space between them.

Helpful and Friendly Staff - Connie enjoyed the activities for her 9 year old son. She didn't have to worry about him at all. What a very CLEAN and AWESOME park.
