This campground is amazing! We have been here in the past but not since the bathroom remodel and other additions. Everything is always clean, staff is always friendly. We will definitely be back and recommend this to others!

One of the nicest KOA's I have been in. Bathrooms were super clean, kabins were nicely landscaped with bushes, and they served up a delicious breakfast pizza.

The pizza is awesome, the staff is very helpful and friendly. I had a girls nite out with friends in a deluxe cabin...totally worth it. It was like a slumber party for adults. Lots of fun!

Nice cabin and reasonable rate but couldn't figure out how to get the water unit to work. We had arrived after 9 pm and our access information was available on the bulletin board. Perhaps some directions for the water unit could be printed out and taped to the water unit in the cabin so campers would know how to obtain hot/cold water.

Two nights of quiet and a peaceful view of the lake was just what I needed, and received at the Des Moines West, IA KOA. What a great place with great service.

Cleaner than many hotels I have stayed at!

Everything was great. Rain made things tough...other than that it was perfect.

Great new restrooms and showers, lots of kids activities. They charge ectra for all the activities including the pool. Would rather pay more up front, feels like being nickle and dimed to death.


Hey Michaelann, maybe you're confused with another park, but we don't charge for the heated swimming pool...never have...never will. We also don't charge for our organized activities, outside of the occasional craft that includes a product that costs money.

Stayed in the cabin right across from the pond. It was ideal for our young boys first fishing experience. He caught more than 5 small fish and he was so excited! The owners and staff where so friendly and accommodating.This campground was an oasis for children and adults alike. I will definately return again!

We had a wonderful weekend with our children. Our kids range in age from 8 to 17 and they all had a great time! We made lots of fun memories and will definitely be back.

Thick bushes overgrown at cabin entrance. They got us and our gear wet when we entered cabin. There was a lot of mud on road. Hard to walk thru mud getting to shower house.

This was our first KOA stay and it was wonderful! Not far off the interstate, it's quiet and had all the amenities we wanted. We enjoyed our lodge that fit out family of 4 perfectly- large deck with fire pit, propane grill, picnic table and porch swing. The grounds had plenty of attraction for our kids. The bathrooms and laundry were clean and neat. Only frustration was that our stay was too short

Excellent facilities and very friendly staff. Air conditioning in the shower rooms was great. Pizza and wings were very good. Cabin was very clean. Did not have the grandkids along but they would have enjoyed all there is to do.

The cabin we stayed in KL14 was amazing!!!!! Just upset when we came the pool wasn't filled and nobody called to let us know it had been emptied. The staff gave us a discount which we really appreciated. All in all It was a great experience and plan on bringing my husband and children for a stay this summer!

Great place to spend the weekend. We will definitely return.

There were 10 of us(6 adults, 4 kids)in a motorhome, 5 wheel and camping cabin. Weather didn't cooperate-but didn't stop us from having a great time! Activities for kids were great, facilities in awesome condition and staff wonderful. Will return! Thank you.

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.
