Very nicely situated by the body of water. Sites were neat and well maintained. The staff went above and beyond being helpful when our camper developed a problem while on site.

Easy on/off for a big rig!!

Beautiful campground, helpful, friendly hosts. Far enough from Des Moines Metro area and interstate to be quiet, yet close enough to be convenient. We are Full-timers and plan on using your campground as our "home base" when in the area from now on!

We only stayed one night but it was very clean and quiet!

Nice wide sites, pleasant and knowledgeable hosts. VERY quiet, away from the main highway but easy to get to.

Very nice and friendly staff. We were there early in the spring so they were doing their spring cleanup but the park has a great potential. We would stop back and stay again.

Very surprised after staying there a year ago much of the camp ground is still not functional including bath rooms, cable and wifi was unusable.

Other than the internet going in and out, it was a great stay.

Great Kamp ground and the owners and staff were fantastic. They went out their way to locate an auto parts store for us so we could find a repair part for our motorhome.

We came in late on Monday eve Oct 20 2014 and were extremely tired from travelling all day. Went right to bed but were kept awake by someone's dog continually barking for about 2 hrs! We were in site 11 and the noise was from a trailer over by the cabins. It was not a very restful night and am sad that the dog owner was not very respectful of other campers! We have always enjoyed your koa.

The place was great! Everyone, was so nice! We love that you all sell pizza. It was a life saver! The only disappointing was the amount of dog poop we had to dodge in our campsite. We'd still come back just don't want to dodge the poop.

Actually, we stayed 2 nights. This KOA has gone the extra mile for amenities: the best dog park we've seen plus a fishing pond and a great playground. If we pass that way again, we'll definitely stay here.

I wish they would post the rates so campers would know weekend rates are higher. No complaints about the park or staff. Very friendly & helpful.

Limited office hours are not ideal. The stay was good and we will return again when in the area.

Really didn't stay at the campground much...mainly just to sleep, but the little bit we were there we liked it! Great customer service! Love the fact that you can have pizza (including breakfast pizza) delivered to your camper! What better way to serve breakfast on the morning you leave!!

Best Dog play area we have seen, and we've seen many. Really friendly and helpful staff. Got the Pizza and some wings delivered to our door. Both good and a welcome end to a long driving day. VERY quiet, as it is about a mile from the freeway. VERY nice grass and excellent sized spaces. We we wishing we could stay at this one longer. WiFi worked pretty well. Only thing missing was cable.

Located about a mile off the interstate so pretty quiet. Good access to pull thrus. Level gravel sites with good spacing. Laundry is VERY limited (4 Washer/Dryer).

Thanx to the Boss for helping me with the apartment

Everything was great with the facilties. The only frustration was the WIFI. When we phoned in advance to ask, he told me it was all working great, but when we arrived at the campground she said they were having trouble with anyone with Windows 8. I have Windows 8 and couldn't get on. I needed to do some things on Internet that night and would have appreciated knowing the problem in advance.

The West Des Moines KOA was perfect for an overnight stay - convenient to the interstate, level sites, well-stocked store and a large laundry. The owners were welcoming and helpful. One caveat - if your computer is a PC go to office for help on connecting to the Wifi.

I stayed at this campground two years ago, and really enjoyed it, but not so this time. In fact, we left one day early because of no internet service. The internet would come and go. Totally not dependent, and I work as a independent consultant, and have to have e mail. I wont stay here again until this is fixed.
