Newton KOA is only 30 miles east of Des Moines right off of Interstate 80 (Exit 168). Very close and convenient for camping during the State Fair yet out of the fair traffic and crowds. Come and relax in one of our 30 or 50 amp sites or pitch a tent in a tent site in the shade and relax.
Our pool is very refreshing and we have free wi-fi and cable tv along with many other amenities when you aren't attending the fair.
