The store was well stocked. The bathrooms and my cabin were spotless. And the staff were great. They deserve a hug.

Need to have more available. Might add tv in the cabins


We're always adding new stuff throughout the year, but we're always open to suggestions, as well. Let us know what you'd like to see in the future, because we do our best to add new amenities.

We love coming here. The people are great, the camp ground is clean and the pool and cabins are fun! We live very close by but stay once a year as a family tradition!!! We love it!

This was my family's first chance to go camping, and everything was much better than expected. Events for the kids, comfortable cabins, and an overall clean park.

I love the little cabins! A good sturdy bed for my bad back, but I Can still enjoy the camp fire and grill. I love the butterfly bush helped me enjoy my two favorite things! Butterflies and hummingbird!!

Great location! Peaceful setting and cozy cabins. We used this as our family vacation for the year and are excited to come back next year!

Not as well landscaped as most others we have enjoyed over the last several days. Nice people though. Bath accommodations were not as nice. Good clean pool.

This was our first time staying at this KOA. We really liked it. The cabin was clean and cozy. The pizza delivered to our site was excellent and so convenient after our long drive.

Nice facilities, clean KOA grounds, friendly staff. What more could you expect?

After checking in I told my husband that the owner (woman) was the nicest person I had ever experienced helping me at a KOA. We had an absolutely wonderful time-from the wine tasting to the ice cream social, to our 3 time walk around the campground. We could have even ordered pizza which was very tempting.The cabin was clean & smelled like someone made sure it had not been closed up all day.

The staff treated us very well clean place we like to stay at this koa.

We had a good service. Everybody at KOA were concerned about us. The cabin and the bathroom were pretty clean. Thanks again for the good service.

I stayed in a Camping Cabin alone. I felt safe. Appreciated the night security lights as I walked to the bathroom at night. The pool and bathrooms were clean and cared for. Would have loved to try the pizza and wings. Maybe next time! Thanks, Carla Gray

The cabin was incredibly clean and had to have been new. It was perfect for our family of 4 and the patio area was just as nice as the cabin. My husband's only comment was that for the price of a hotel it would be nice to have a better mattress. We also enjoyed the organized activities throughout the weekend. Very family friendly!

The customer service was horrible. The lock on our cabin was broken and we were not informed of that. We were traveling with a baby and did not feel safe unable to lock the door. The staff didn't seem to care and just told us the Adel, IA is safe. We had to force a solution and told them we need a bar or something to put in the track so the door would not open. They finally gave us something.

Nice cabin and the staff was friendly

I liked the extra activities for the kids and the campground was very clean. The store could have been stocked a little better and open earlier in the morning.

The Kabin was clean but advertised amenities were not provided. The showers were ICE COLD. There was a sign that said to allow 2 minutes for the water to heat up but it never warmed up. The wifi was so slow and intermittent that it was impossible to even check email. The Kabin electricity was cut around 8am so we had no lights or air conditioning while packing up.

The cabin was pefect. We are looking forward to our next stay!

My son had a great time in your pool & playground. The only downer was the immense amount of flies everywhere. It was like being on a farm. Your people were very pleasant, and if it weren't fore the flies, it would've been perfect.

Very clean, pleasant hosts, great swimming, very clean cabin. Would say this was one of the best events of our summer!!
Jul 09, 2013
We travelled 3 hours only to discover that we had left our tent poles at home! Thankfully, there was an open cabin and our reservation was changed. All of the staff was friendly and helpful and we were pleased with our entire stay. Having a pizza shop on site is genius! We would love to stay here again!

We stayed in the deluxe cabin. Had a great time. Cabin was very clean. Our daughter enjoyed the loft all to herself. The pool was a bonus however there were LOTS of kids unsupervised and it was too busy at times. Staff was helpful and very friendly.
Jul 05, 2013
Amazing, as always! Nothing but good things to say about your facility!
Jul 03, 2013
The campground is very nice. We stayed in a new, very nice cabin. However, we did not know pillows,dishes and pots and pans were not furnished. the Website said to bring your linens. The owners were very nice and said they would update the website to add that you needed to bring those items too. The queen bed was too hard and needed a foam topper. Our stay was very pleasant other than that.

What a wonderful weekend. We will definitely stay here again. My 60th BDay was celebrated with family. On Saturday 40 members were present. The fishing was great. The kids caught fish after fish, including one snapping turtle. Grandma of course, spent much time baiting worms and releasing the fish :) All the employees were extremely helpful. A weekend I will always treasure. Highly recommend!!

Our stay was great. The location, fishing pond, and activities exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

Your camp site provided a variety of entertainment options-fishing at the farm pond-my daughters and I caught 6 fish:) Also we enjoyed the mini cabin accomodations, the swimming pool,meeting some of the fellow campers, and renting the bikes to tour the campgrounds. thanks also for finding us a grill cover to use at our fire pit. Thanks, Steve Johnson & family
