It was a lot of fun. The only thing I would change is to offer the kids activities during the week in the summer. My kids were bummed they didn't get to do the slip & slide.

My girls would have done your gem stones search until all of my savings was gone! I do see some construction. I am concerned that my tweets are growing out of your campground. Is there a plan for a bigger pool in the future?

Good time for my children. Very family friendly. Enjoyed our stay.

A tidy little cabin and quiet campground. It seemed to have lots of activities for kids and we saw lots of happy people. A lovely stay

We stayed in a cabin that was nice but needed a cleaning you could see the floors weren't moped for a long time and there was some loose trash around the campground.

"These restrooms are better than most hotel restrooms!" -comment from another camper that I totally agree with :) Nice clean cabin & bathrooms. Pool was the perfect temperature. Friendly staff.

Lovely campground, spotless and comfortable Kamping Kabin, and SO many wonderful weekend activities for the kids!! This was our first stay... and it won't be our last. Thanks to all at the KOA who made it such a nice family destination. :)

We had a very nice reunion. It was during the Christmas in July weekend and we participated in many of the activities. The staff was kind and helpful.

There were 35 of my family at the camp ground from 7/26 - 7/30. We all had a great time. Our kids were entertained by the staff. The adults found the staff to be polite and accommodating. Thanks for the great weekend! We will be back at a KOA next year!

Loved it, everything was great!

Great place to relax and enjoy doing nothing. Plenty of things to keep the kids occupied and have fun, too.

I don't have a reference to compare it to but we were pleased. Mostly pleased that my children didn't break anything. Thank you for the clean cabin.

Super - SUPER Friendly staff. Fun activities for the kids. Delicious pizza and buffalo wings. Nice pool with numerous chairs and loungers.

Super clean. Very friendly and inviting. Great location to tour the covered bridges. Lovely shaded K9 park for the pups....with scented bags =)! Quiet and inviting. Thank you!

Loved the place although its showing its age. Also it let someone bring in a school bus full of little kids to the pool and that was disruptive--we wanted more peace and quiet. Customer service was awesome though! People were amazing. Laundry machines were from the 70's and the pool was old as well and very small.

We were disappointed when we arrived a little early and our cabin wasn't ready. The person said they would get someone right on it. We waited on the patio over an hour for someone to show up to start cleaning. The campground is very well maintained and a great place to stay. We have had better interaction with staff in the past. We only had one staff member make us feel wanted

Great place only a couple tweeks we'd recommend...put a sliding door lock up high on inside of front door to not allow kids to reach it and possibly a short 5' wall between deck areas.

We had a very good time. The cabins were nice and much better than being cooped up in a hotel while we visited Des Moines. The restroom facilities were quite nice and the kids enjoyed the activities. The pool was too small for the number of guests and the cabins and some sites were way too close to each other and it feels more like a parking lot than a nature type camping experience.

Thanks! Had a wonderful time!

Great campground for kids! Ours had a blast. Sites are a bit small but manageable. Staff was great.... they worked their butts off all weekend long. Planning our weekend for next year already. This was our first KOA and it was a great experience.

Cabin was very clean, most staff is extremely nice, and we will be back. The pool could have been cleaner.
Jul 11, 2017
the cabin was very nice. water would not get very warm for a shower. it was also frustrating you had to pay more to get into some activities for the kids. the campground was nice and clean.
Jul 10, 2017
We LOVE this place! Activities and amenities are awesome. We take our grandkids every summer now. Thank you for your new improvements, especially the Gaga Pit!

Our kabin was nice and mostly clean. We had dirty dishes and a dirty microwave which was kind of gross. Also, lots of kids activities but an additional fee is required.
Jul 10, 2017
We had a great time, the staff were all very helpful and friendly! We will definitely come back.
Jul 08, 2017
Great site with lots of activities. Very clean, well maintained facility. The soil is clay, so it can get mucky when it rains.
Jul 06, 2017
Super clean and friendly staff. Very kid oriented. Will be back.
Jul 06, 2017
We enjoyed our stay. The kamping Kabin was very comfortable!

Very clean. Tons of stuff for kids to do. We will be back!

Was a great relaxing time. My son had a great time in the pool and on the jumping pillow.

Our stay was great. Cabin was clean. Kids had a blast. Staff was nice. Can't wait for our next year visit unless we can squeeze another weekend in this year.

I was pleased that the cabin I had requested when I made our reservation way last January was actually held for me. It provided a central gathering area for other members attending our family reunion, who were camped nearby. It was important to us to have the specific cabin we had requested. With service like this we are very likely to continue holding our family reunions at this KOA campground

Stayed in the new 2017 cabin. So nice! Our 4 boys were entertained the whole weekend. $10/stay per child wristbands were well worth the money. The weekend themed activities were so fun. Shower house showers were nicer than my house. Can't say enough good things. Definitely be back and tell our friends.

Very clean and nice.

I love the cabin but I wish the parking spot is in front of the cabin. Easier for unpacking and packing. Maybe add a ceiling fan to circulate the cool air from the a/c. Thanks!

Great hosts...super stay.
