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.

Only thing I didn't like was that there was no cable tv. And the internet was really slow.

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.

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.

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.

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean site and restrooms. Easy pull through sites with some trees for shade. I would go back.

Service was excellent. The owner showed us to our site and even took our pizza order! The pizza was good too. Nice location about a mile off the road, so no road noise. Very family oriented KOA. Recommended.

We only stayed one night on our way home to Kentucky from South Dakota It had rained and we had to drive through mud and the sewer pool was stinking so bad we could not set outside.

This KOA has the friendly works of all the camp grounds I have been to. The park is alway clean and neat. We like the idea that you could order a pizza and or chicken wings are they would deliver to your site. This park is a family friendly park , a lot of attivity . We had a great time.
