They ran out of thin crust pizza, No rules for children's etiquette for respecting others Too far from anything

We are not super experienced in the camper world, however this KOA was exceptional. The value was great. The spaces were well kept and roomy. Chris and Jamie have put a lot of work into this KOA. We will be using it again when we come back through.

We were pleased to see that they had a pool and things for the kids to do. Also very nice that they had pizza and wings that they delivered right to our campsite! Super friendly!

Very nice park. Nice size sites,pretty view of pond at our site. Best pet park we've seen, and very nice people. Pool was warm and we had a great time. It was a long walk to bathroom was the only downside. We would definitely stay here again.

loved the dog park, it was huge and divided into two sides. all REAL grass. sites were nice, all had tables and trees. staff was awesome especially Wendy who gave us instructions in case of a tornado ! the night we were there it was storming with a tornado watch so we were a bit unnerved but they had a plan if needed. they were a lot of fun.

The sites are easy to enter and leave. The grounds are clean. It's quiet. It has two nice enclosed pet yards. The pizza is excellent. Finally, the staff are wonderfully friendly!

Many things for the kids to do to keep them from being bored. Didn't experience any mosquitoes. Surprised that there was very little noise for a lot of people being there.

Nice, well kept park. Fun for young children, easy for Big Rigs to maneuver in and out.

Our GPS had a hard time finding this campground. All was well after arrival. There was a wine tasting at the office. Many amenities for kids & families. Restrooms & showers clean. Our overnight stay met our expectations.

This KOA was rated great (clicking on the star did not work) We only had hoped to be able to spend another night in the same spot and not have to move.

Shade was appreciated. Site was long and wide enough for our rig - and level without assistance. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Everything was great but I don't like the pull throu parking arrangement. I don't like having to keep my shades drawn because my neighbor can see right in.

Friendly staff, nice and clean, new owners are reworking some of the sites, very nice K-9 park - room for dogs to run. If we are in the area again we would stay here

Just GREAT as always

staff was friendly. A few trees, grounds good for those with satellite. Cable was good. Wifi an issue was unable to connect. instructions weren't clean. Never able to get to page to enter password provided. Have added a few premium sites with paved patio, swing, new grills, patio table/chairs. Cabins were the best looking we had seen at a KOA and were adding more. We camped here in a Motorhome

This is our second time at staying at this KOA. We were greeted by friendly and very helpful personnel who accommodated our needs. Great facilities and fenced dog park. I will definitely recommend Des Moines West KOA.

Easy pull through sites. Prices for fun pass rather steep for an overnight stay.
Jun 15, 2015
Wonderful activities for the kids. They were busy all day. The nicest campground bathroom/shower house you will ever use.
Jun 15, 2015
Stayed in space#4 - guests have no concern for site privacy. Constant flow of kidz & dog owners cutting thru our site to dog park & playground. This needs better enforcement! Will not stay again.
Jun 15, 2015
great staff!!!
Jun 15, 2015
Great people and nice neat campground
Jun 15, 2015
Nice, happy patrons. Good sites. However, they should not charge extra for use of pool - especially since it wasn't clear on the amenities descriptions.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We've never charged for the heated swimming pool...sorry for the confusion.

Amazing updates from the last time we stayed. Can't wait to go back!

We had a very nice spot but it rained almost the whole time we were there so we didn't get out much. The only things wrong was that my husband sat on the picnic table bench to rest for a minute, and the whole table started to collapse. I do think that they were in the process of replacing them.

Great restrooms!
Jun 12, 2015
We just did NOT have enough time to spend at this campground! We had our two grand children with us and there were SO many activities to keep them busy. The campground is very clean and well run. The office staff couldn't have been more helpful. Although we did not eat there, the pizza smelled delicious and the ice cream would certainly be a treat! We plan to return when we have more time!

Always love our stays here. Owners and staff go out of their way to make you feel at home and provide a nice, fun, place to stay.
