Campground Reviews

our stay was ok but the guy with the pony tail needs to clean up and not have a cigarette hanging out his mouth all the time was a little put out with this

This is the best KOA has to offer. I have only stayed in one other KOA that equals this one. (Not that there aren't others). The Deluxe sites are level and spacious, as well as the Executive sites. Everything well kept, people are great and amenities are plentiful, especially for children. The short distance to Adel or Desoto is no further than most people drive to dine out or grocery shop.

Very clean and comfortable. The Wifi could be a little more consistent. But other than that we really enjoyed our stay

It was awesome! It was very nice of the owner to give my kids a day pass to the jumping pillow and go carts because the pool was being fixed. We really liked the newly remodeled bathrooms too.

The campground was nice except for all the mud from the rains. Need to put more gravel on roads and campsites. Overall the park was good and very quiet. Restrooms were clean.

This is a great campground. They have made major upgrades including the restroom. The sites are very nice and include a picnic table and fire ring. The ice cream was a new addition and was fantastic! Lots of activities for children. I really like this campground and will return.

There were 10 of us(6 adults, 4 kids)in a motorhome, 5 wheel and camping cabin. Weather didn't cooperate-but didn't stop us from having a great time! Activities for kids were great, facilities in awesome condition and staff wonderful. Will return! Thank you.

The staff are always very friendly and welcoming, and we have already stayed here several times over the past few years. We often tell people about your campground and look forward to coming back. In addition to the positive customer service experience, it's such a peaceful place to stay.

Love all the changes that have been made. The staff as always is wonderful and very helpful.

Put us way out and in a double site when there were not that many campers at the time. Roads were very hard to walk on because of large size gravel used. Easy to turn an ankle. New upgraded restroom/showers were very nice. Wine tasting a nice touch for the adults (lots of things for kids). The pizza was delicious and delivered to boot. Very nice.

Facilities were clean and well maintained.

We had a great time even with the wonderful Iowa weather. Just one thing there are alot of children at this campground and I would suggest perhaps the man with the pony tail may want to slow down when driving the golf cart
May 26, 2015
I love this camp ground it is very clean, the staff is always great and I love all the activities for the kids.
May 25, 2015
This is a nice quiet KOA that we've used in the past, but the bathrooms and showers were out of service, waiting for parts. Staff was very nice.
May 25, 2015
The stay was great! .lots of fun things for kids and small extras like garbage pick up that make it a better stay. how but a recycle pick up for cans and bottles?
May 25, 2015
We tent camped on a site with electricity- fun! We always have a great time at the KOA and my boys never want to leave!
May 25, 2015
Very enjoyable.

Great owners, and I'm sure usually it's a great place to stay, grass was nice to set up the tents. Unfortunately, very muddy, and no trees so we were totally exposed to the sun, the other campers, and no privacy. And in a muddy messy because it rained (the car almost got stuck bc there's no real parking spots at the tent sights). Lastly, the sights are REALLY close together, no privacy at all!
May 23, 2015
The staff is amazing and the park is top notch. Will definitely recommend to others. Allready have as a matter of fact

We rented 3 of the one room camping cabins for our girl scout camping trip. Chris and Jamie also allowed us the use of the pavilion for our bridging ceremony and parent pot luck. We had a great time and our Kabins were warm and dry even when a terrific thunderstorm rolled in.
