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!!

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.

Amazing, as always! Nothing but good things to say about your facility!

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!!

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

It was wonderful. Though we only spent one night, the cabin was clean and a great place to stay. Arriving late we wondered how easy it would be to check in. When we got there our key and a map were waiting for us, it made our night a lot less stressful knowing that we could get there late and still have a place to stay! Will definitely be staying there again and recommend it to anyone!

Camping -- with a pool, playground, laundry and activities -- it doesn't get much better than that. We enjoyed the amenities of a lodge with the fun of outdoors. It was a great stay.

Once again a long drive to a great KOA cabin. Campground was nice and clean. Showers were clean. Great wings for diner which were delivered to our cabin. It had AC & I would stay again.

Very good KOA - easy to get to. Needs a bit of updating to compare to others we stayed at along our journey, but overall pretty nice. Wondering why the parking to cabins requires campers to negotiate trees and bushes to get to your cabin.

KOA is the perfect place for friends and family of all ages to be together for some good, wholesome fun and bonding time!

Lovely campground and helpful staff. We stayed in one of the new cabins and loved it. We hope to stay again in the future when traveling west.

We had a bad night when we camped in our tent the first night, due to drinking campers, and noisy campers who set up camp after we were in bed. Once we switched to a cabin, it was great! The owner is very personable and accomodating. Very clean bathrooms and cabins. We'll probably stay again next year (we are from WI), but not tenting!

Friendly staff. Clean park. Great location, far from interstate noise. Suggestions: deliver firewood to site. Educate campers - don't cut thru campsites & quiet hours.

We enjoyed the spring weather that finally arrived in a very nice new lodge. Lodge was very comfortable and quite. We enjoyed the lovely brick patio and some evening fires.. The staff and owners where very friendly and hospitable. Great location off I-80 just west of DesMoines. Thanks for the nice environment you provided.

Beautiful, clean, well kept. No trains, no traffic noise. One of our favorite KOAs countrywide! Chris honored our frequent camper rewards card, even tho it had expired one day before our arrival. Excellent customer service - we will definitely be back this fall. Thank you!!!
