We now have Cable TV!!!
You asked for it through our customer satisfaction surveys, and we have responded! Stop by and see our new cable TV system. Watch your favorite shows from our list of 24 channels such as the History Channel, the Speed Channel, Lifetime, FX, Cartoon Network, A&E, the Travel Channel, HGTV, and much more! Tell us what you think!
Your GPS may take you on a tour through Newton, IA!
Some GPSs that RVers use may route them indirectly to our campground through the town of Newton. Though we are proud of our town and we think every visitor should see it first hand, there is a much easier way to get to our campground from I-80. When traveling I-80, just get off at exit 168 and travel north on Iowa Speedway Drive 3/4 mile and look for our Newton KOA sign on the left. When you see it, make a hard left turn in front of the sign. This will lead you into Newton KOA.
Services at Exit 168.
Newton has many services to offer.
- Do you need general supplies and groceries? No problem - Walmart is only a mile way.
- Are the kids hungry and you don't want to prepare a meal? No problem - you can order a pizza in the office and we will deliver to your site.
- Do you need RV repair? No problem - my business neighbor (Barney's Towing) can have you up and going in no time. Also, we have experienced RV technicians in the community who regularly make service calls to Newton KOA.
- Do you need fuel? No problem - we have 3 gas stations within one mile of Newton KOA.
- Do you need a good meal? No problem - there are several restaurants to choose from in the area!
New ADA Compliant Pool Chair Lift!
This year we added an ADA Compliant pool chair lift for our guests. If you camp at our park let one of the staff know if you need to use the lift and we would be happy to help you out!
Meet Your Hosts
"Hey - We now have cable TV!! Come by and check it out!!! Families, Friends, and Fun! That's what we're all about! As owners, Helen and I live on site and are ready to serve your RVing/camping needs. Come and enjoy our midwest hospitality."Helen and I were married in 1984 and lived for the next 21 years in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in a traditional middle class neighborhood where we raised our 3 kids. During that time, I worked as a mechanical engineer at the nearby nuclear power plant.
One day I looked at Helen and said "Let's do something different and exciting for a living while the kids are still young - something that involves the outdoors and will involve the whole family."
She agreed and, after packing up our old beat-up RV, we headed west for Yellowstone. During that time we experienced all the mountain states had to offer such as Devil's Tower, Roosevelt National Park, Custer's Last Stand, the Grand Teatons, etc. I remember meeting many RVers and was impressed with how friendly and free-spirited they were. It didn't take Helen and me long to determine that RV park ownership was the answer to our career pursuits.
In 2005, we purchased the park that is now Newton KOA and never looked back. Even after 8 years as a park owner, I never get tired of RVers - they all have a story to tell. Come share your story with us while on your trip - perhaps at one of our ice cream socials.
