The owners and workers at this KOA are super people. They were very helpful and quick to act if there was something that needed attention....a great place to stay!

We requested two spots that we could park awning-to-awning, and we were accommodated nicely. There was much to do with the grandkids (aged 4, 3, 2 and 1)..they especially liked the bouncy area and the pool. I do wish there was more room for those campers who are actually staying for the amenities as opposed to those who are just stopping for the night. They aren't outside and using the fire pit

Very friendly and efficient check-in process even though they were very busy. Easy in and easy out. The campground is only a mile and a half from the interstate highway so it's easy to get to but it's far enough that you don't hear any road noise.

Very friendly staff & there were many activities for our grandchildren to choose from. The convenience store had many things to choose from for our possible needs.

Only comment would be that some of the sites are smaller and campers looked packed together.

The two woman working there were great, we got pizza and chicken it was delivered quick and hot and was very good. Everything was clean and welcoming...just thought having to pay extra for the bouncy was a bit much.

The employees were great. The location was very quiet and easy to get to and back to interstate. Site was very level and clean and the restrooms were well maintained. I would use this as a sleep stop on my way to other destinations in the future.

Best KOA campground we have stayed in and as KOA VIPs, we've stayed in plenty. Kid and pet friendly, organized activities and themes for kids, serene fishing pond, spacious sites, wonderful staff, manicured and well maintained park environment. Even makes & delivers delicious pizzas!

We stayed four nights during our last stay in July 2015. We stayed here previously for two nights. The staff are friendly, the campground is well supervised, the bathrooms are modern and clean, and the area is very quiet with no planes, trains, or highway noises. Our teenages enjoyed the pool and the bouncing pillow. We prefer to stay here when in the Des Moines area.

Should be called - Limited Free Wifi. You were asked not to use Netflix, ect. This was an issue for us. Bouncing pillow was great for my son.
Jul 28, 2015
We had a great stay. We really liked the improvements they have made over the past year! It really makes paying so much for a campsite worth it. We would like the jump pillow to be just part of the rate instead of having to purchase even more when we arrive.

Very nice people and loved the pizza.

need more shade trees

Very nice campground with lots of family activities especially for kids. There are plenty of theme weekends throughout the season--ours was Christmas in July which was fun to observe. Also a nice local wine tasting was a fun experience. A heavy rain in the middle of the night did not seem to affect the area the next morning--drainage must be excellent. It is a bit far from the metro area but quiet

Not only was there adequate staff, but they were a bunch of great people! The facility was clean and modern. We will be returning with the Grandkids next time because of the many things for them to enjoy as well. Did I mention the staff!!!! Thanks for a great stay. Jim

I am an insurance adjuster and travel all over the United States.The best KOA I have ever stayed at. The people there are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure that everything is just right. The owners are doing a magnificent job on representing the KOA family you should the proud of them. Kenneth Lode 817-821-4893 Fort Worth Texas.

This koa was a pleasant surprise. We were going on the Boone train ride and other tourist attractions. This koa was centrally located. We loved the two area dog run,the spacious pads and cleanliness. We plan on coming back.

Des Moines West, IA gets an A+ in all facets of the camping experience for the travelling camper. Customer service was as good as you can get. Friendly, courteous and helpful. This was our second visit and will stay again if in the area.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful very nice park. would stay again if we come through there again.

Lovely little campground close to a quaint old Iowa town (Adel, IA). Perfect for a stopover. Nice folks, superclean bathroom and shower.
