Cabin Reviews

Oct 30, 2012
We had a wonderful girls weekend in one of your Kamping Kabins. We were very pleased with with how well-kept, assessable, and clean everything was (kabin, bathrooms, dish-cleaning station, general store). We've already recommended KOA to our friends.

This was our first time renting one of the small cabins, and we really enjoyed it!

Our stay in one of the lodges was awesome. The little "extras" like a closeline above the shower and extra hooks for coats was appreciated. The lodge was in a new spot, so a bit muddy after a heavy rain, but the helpful staff notifced and brought carpets to help with the mess. Should be great by next year!

We were pleased with our cabin and Kampground generally. I knew what to expect. The "late night" arrivals disturbed our sleep. ( Too much auto noise )

Loved everything about the stay except the mattress in the master bedroom of the deluxe cabin. Very unbalanced, but everything else was fine.

The staff was extremely welcoming & made us feel very comfortable with our stay. We stay in one of the larger lodges & every thing was extremely clean & just how the pictures showed. We will be staying again soon!

Nice and peaceful. Very clean restrooms. Really need to have changes made so that they are ADA approved though. Our son cannot use the bathrooms at this site. Other than that it is very nice.

We have stayed here many times and love it. This trip was just as enjoyable, however, we were a little disappointed. The cabin was dirty I had to spend an hour cleaning it and we always enjoy the activities but there weren't any.

Very clean but website made it sound closer to des Moines than it was. Loved the dog park & playground. The sign on road said coffee at 8am; it was 9am. beautiful log cabin. Loved the trees and landscaping.

We had cockroaches in our cabin. Seeing 10+ running across the floor while making a trip the bathroom in the night is not how I like to vacation. Also there is a thick coat of dust on the fan and wall in the bedroom. We enjoyed our stay, the people and location until the roaches. We checked out a day early but didn't get a refund. It would have been enjoyable in a Tent or camper.

I hope you guys offer groupons for next summer! This is how I found out about you guys and ended up coming three times this summer. The store hours (only til 8 on weekends and 7 on weekdays) closed a little early for us though. It seemed like when we needed things it was too late! Also, I wish the gift shop offered more things specific to the Des Moines campgrounds or just KOA in general!!

Not having to punch the restroom code any more was convenient, but it was not a big deal the previous time when I had to do it.

We had a great time. The staff was super friendly and helpful, making the stay less stressful. The cabins were an excellent alternative to a tent.

We had a wonderful weekend (as usual). The other campers were awesome and we will be back!
