Cabin Reviews

May 19, 2015
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.

Staff was very friendly and nice. They seems to be in process of some new updates around the campground and the bathrooms were updated. We stayed in their new deluxe camping cabin and it was perfect for our situation. We were in town just for the weekend, but didn't want to pack all the camping equipment since i'm 9 months pregnant and have two preschoolers.The kids enjoyed the weekend activities.

We had a great two day stay in a 4 person camping lodge! When we arrived the host was very helpful and pleasant. The lodge was immaculate and welcoming. Our kids made many new friends. They had a blast! They throughly enjoyed the numerous kid friendly activities and the bounce pillow. We plan to return soon!

Nice new cabin, very clean. Was pleased to see dishes and coffee maker, soap and dish towels. Better than a hotel!

The cabin we stayed in was very clean and cozy. We enjoyed the horseshoes and ladder golf and would have utilized more amenities if we had more time. The only thing we didn't love was that the water tasted mildewy. Otherwise, we had a great stay!

We had family staying in 2 RVs but we also used Lodge 1. Loved the location so Lodge family could be with the RV families. We also really enjoyed all the activities offered.

The campground was okay, campground and cabin was clean. Enjoyed the kids activities. The pool needs to be redone, it was dirty, hand railing loose, to deep for kids and needs to be resurfaced.

great people, great campground, easy access from I80. We stay in a camping cabin a couple of times a year and it is always clean

The cabin was very nice. It would be better if you didn't have to pack all your bedding and kitchenware on top of everything else. The pool was nice but needs to be renovated...the surface was very rough and tore our feet up. Playground equipment was for older children. Very friendly and helpful staff.

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!

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.
