Cabin Reviews

Very nice campground and cabin. Staff very helpful. Quiet and peaceful!

Cabin ok. But, when checked in computer did not work, lady at the counter seemed confused and extremely disorganized. Your campsite store did not have very obvious supplies.Have firewood, no firestart We had a fire first night. There were holes in the fire pit and leaves that were damp and smelled terrible. Office closes at 7pm which I think is unprofessional. Should be open at least til 8 or 9

Great stay. We were treated so well. We called to say we would be late getting in. They stayed until we got there. So Cool. The cozy cabin was very clean and comfy.

I'm a return guest. I really enjoy this campground; love the location and the kabin! I was really disappointed, however, that the dog park had been (I've been told temporarily) closed down and replaced by a bouncy pillow (fee for use). I wish I had been advised that the fenced dog park feature was not available when I made my reservations, by phone, for a kabin that allowed dogs.

This KOA is kept clean and the campsites are well maintained. We stayed in a camping cabin and is was clean inside. The outside was very well kept, nice plants and other greenery. We loved the swing and the covered porch. Thank you for doing the stay one nite get the 2nd nite free offer it makes it a little easier on the pocket book for our trip to Des Moines.

It was a great stay. The campground was clean and easy to navigate. A staff person was there to meet me even though I arrived at 9p. I only wish this location had more bathrooms.

Our family did a fall campout in the cabins. They were clean, staff friendly and plenty of fun for all.

No heat in the bathrooms. The shower head fell off the shower and got my daughter's clothes wet. Campground was quite noisy. Other campers did not observe the 10pm - 7 am quiet hours even after I reminded them. At 10:25 pm I called the KOA main number and left a message about the noise. To my knowledge, no one came to the campground to resolve the problem.

Nice facility. Friendly staff and campers. We bought some fire wood for our stay and the woman brought a couple of small dry branches for us to use as kindling...great customer service!

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!!

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.
