RV Reviews

My wife and I prefer to stay in KOA's as we travel because they are usually close to the Interstate Highway, upscale accommodations, wifi and cable hookups (we don't have to deploy anything), and friendly managers. The Des Moines KOA was no exception. It was a very nice campground and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would stay again when traveling through the area.

Very nice as always

This was our 2nd time at Des Moines West KOA - just as good as 1st. Very friendly, helpful staff who allowed us a different space than the one they had selected for us so we would have southern sky for our satellite tv. Laundry room clean; Our dog Bailee loved the big, grassy K-9 Camp - best dog park we have ever seen at any KOA or other RV Park. Thanks for a great stay!

Great staff. Sites really close together. It rained and was pretty muddy outside the door. Clean restrooms.

Interior roads are too narrow. The serpentine exit route is challenging especially with all the cars and golf carts parked everywhere. Make sure that Big Rigs are parked on a Big Rig site.

Awesome park...fantastic activities for families, nice big & wide level sites, extremely well kept, always adding new amenities...perfect for our month long stay.

Wonderful stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Please be sure and ask staff about the Rusty Duck

A little more shade would have been nice, but there were plenty of things to do and it was very quiet, despite being close to I80

This KOA always rates a 10. From the inviting entrance and welcoming staff, comfortable sites, the best-stocked store, we're always glad to stay here. The laundry and the pool are clean, there's a case of chilled beer, ice cream, and hot pizza delivered to our door. What's not to love?

Everything at this KOA was perfect; one of the best we have ever stayed at. The internet never was any good during our eight night stay so I recommend that you take your own hotspot.

A very nice park. Wide spaces, long sites, close to John Wayne's birth place, Madison County Covered Bridges. All in all a great KOA park for site seeing in and around the Des Moine area.

We had a pleasant nites stay. Very friendly staff clean showers. Also very quite when it came time to sleep

The surroundings were nice. Nice off leash dog park. Pretty pond. Other campers were rather invasive, however, cutting thru occupied campsites. Rather steep price wise. Pool needs replacing desperately!

It was quiet, not far off the highway and good amenities. We ordered the pizza and wings for supper and unfortunately the pizza was overcooked and we got wing bites instead of wings. We were hungry and ate it anyway. Would not order again.

This was our second stay here and we always find the facility nice. We stayed in a 40ft fifth wheel. Our site was large enough to deploy our awnings and spend some time outside.
Aug 18, 2014
Only thing I didn't like was that there was no cable tv. And the internet was really slow.

Nice stay

I always enjoy staying here. the only thing this time was there were a few tent campers that decided to be drunk and loud. that was my only disappointment.

Two days. Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Loved the park.

We always enjoy our stay at this camp ground. The continue to make improvements. The new shelter was great to host a cook out for friends and family. The one suggestion I have that I think is really needed is to install at least one chair height toilet in each restroom so that it would not be so hard for us senior citizens to use the facilities.

Spacious, clean, and friendly. Convenient to I-80 too!

We had a great 12 day stay. Fun activities for the kids and comfortable for the adults. Wi Fi did not work so good and a little muddy after the rains so hopefully in the near future a couple upgrades are in order.
Aug 15, 2014
we were in side by side and it could have used some rock on both sides to make it wider. With to days slides it was kind of close.

Staff did not follow published rules regarding speed limits and intrusion through occupied sites. The resulting dust and lack of privacy was very annoying. Nice facility, but a bit remote.

Excellent facilities/property and very friendly staff. We have stayed at this location before and will do so again. The only amenity I would like to see added is cable TV. The available over the airway channels from Des Moines is minimal at best.

Great Wings
