Campground Reviews

Jun 23, 2016
The people were very nice. Didn't have many shaded sites for summer visits and it was in the 90's. Also the right end site on our row was consumed with a huge rig which prevented all of us on that row from being able to come around and back into our sites. We had to drive on the row before all the way to the left and then back all the way to our site. This probably should be remedied.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The row you are in are all pull through 70' sites very easy in and out. Because it's an end row there is no way to back in? Thinking you have us confused with another campground on that part. You were in site 36. Glad you enjoyed your stay!

We had some dogfood that was left from the previous campers,the KOA staff was very good about taking care of the problem. Would definitely recommend it to others.

Very nice place to stay. A few trees could be trimmed and some oil put on the gravel road. Nice operator and will stay there again.

The hiway was noisy,campsites way to close. Asked to leave as quickly as we could as they had race fans coming in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We always remind our campers of check out time so there is no delay in checking in the next camper and ample time to mow and tidy up sites for them. Thanks for staying!

For a KOA it needs a bit of an upgrade. We did enjoy our stay and staff were very helpful.
Jun 18, 2016
Great little camp ground for over nite, sites were close but staff was great.looked like they were expanding new sites.Also close to Iowa race track

Boys liked pool. Folks were friendly. They are putting in brand new playground equipment including a jumping pillow. We enjoyed our stay!
Jun 16, 2016
This was our first stay at a KOA. We were very pleased with the facility and very impressed with the staff. My kids really enjoyed themselves.

very helpfull

Personell were nice and helpful. Some grass in the site. Howerver, sites were short (I needed 50 feet) and narrow.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! The site you were in was a 60' long site. Hope to see you again!
Jun 14, 2016
Very helpful, clean, and kids had fun at the pool. Can't wait to see there new playground updates complete.
Jun 13, 2016
The campground and the facilities were very nice. The only downside is the traffic noise from I-80.
Jun 13, 2016
OK for one night.
Jun 13, 2016
The hosts were excellent. We went to ice cream social and pancake breakfast. Had a great shaded site near everything. Would stay here again. Camped in a motorhome.
Jun 12, 2016
Nice, clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Easy on and off freeway. Close to speedway and other sights. Walmart close for anything you forgot.
Jun 12, 2016
Clean grounds friendly staff but sites are very close to each other.
Jun 11, 2016
Excellent stay, awesome showing the kids all of the lightning bugs!

Great hosts and campground

Little road noise but not to bad. Campground is a little tight for a 42' rig towing.
Jun 09, 2016
Pretty setting. Lots of lush grass. Nice pool area. Friendly staff. Lots of trees and shade. A bit noisy from traffic for tenters at least. Very slow wi-fi in my experience. Kept getting disconnected. Restrooms need updating in my opinion.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy you enjoyed the beauty of our park and the pool! The traffic noise is part of the give and take with being right off of I80 for convenience. We had lightning strike our internet and there was an issue for a day or 2. Restrooms were updated last year.
Jun 07, 2016
Nice clean and quiet stop!
Jun 07, 2016
We were out for the first time with our camper and suffered from CRS syndrome. (Can't remember shit). KOA Bob to the rescue!! Hehe led hook sewer, hot water and shower.he gave above andbeyond. And we were able to enjoy the rest of our trip (until brakes went out in colorado).thank you, bob

This KOA was closer to the interstate than any I have ever stayed at. You could see the traffic driving by and the noise was unbearable. This is a terrible place to stay. The only good thing was we were only staying one night.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Part of the convenience of being only 1/2 mile off of I80 is there is some traffic noise. We are sorry if that was bothersome.

While the campground is a 'nice' campground, it is definitely not worth the price of over $40.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We hope you enjoyed all of the amenities we offer as part of staying at our campground along with the clean facilities.

Sites very tight highway very loud. Wifi non working.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had lightning strike our internet and it was out while the company that is our provider was fixing it. It works fine again, it was one of those unforeseen things we are very sorry. The internet is free at our park.
Jun 02, 2016
The sites are way too close together with too small picnic tables and you have to ask for fire rings. The interstate traffic was a big issue for us at night. And didn't like that our visitors had to park by the office and carry stuff to the site.
Jun 02, 2016
No WI-FI connectivity even with very few campers. Person in office said " shouldn't plan on WI-FI in campgrounds", this, after advertising free WI-FI. Campground is so close to I-80 that noise was unacceptable - howling truck tires all night. Stay somewhere else!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Because of a lightning strike hitting our internet system we did have lags in it for a day, we are very sorry but it was beyond our control and addressed as soon as we realized it happened. Part of the convenience of being within 1/2 mile of i80 is there can be some traffic noise.

Many improvements from last time
Jun 01, 2016
Sights so narrow that sewer port was where next trailers stairs were. Awnings overhang not next site. Only one bathroom for all campground.
Jun 01, 2016
This was our first camping trip as a family and we had a great time. The location was great! The facilities were clean and we hope to visit again soon!

First time staying at a KOA over the memorial weekend. Kids had a blast, staff was extremely friendly, and camp ground is very well kept.
May 31, 2016
interstate is way close to the campground..so if you are a light sleeper this would not work for you...i however..slept just fine. the activities were not all set up yet up so my kiddos just enjoyed the pool :)very clean and friendly service though. :)
May 31, 2016
Only KOA that asked us if we wanted to use our points. Very nice staff.
May 31, 2016
The staff was great and very friendly. The main thing we were disappointed with is how old the playground was. The equipment was metal and pretty rusted. My kids were sad bc we would not let them play on it. Everything else was nice. 😀😀

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The current playground was older, however a brand new playground is being installed for the children to enjoy! However the older playground is safe.

Very load, from I-80 noise. Very crowded, drive through site was so close, there wasn't room for a fire pit. It appears there are a few nice sites, but mostly overcrowded.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We do offer portable fire pits on the sites that there aren't permanent ones. We are happy to set up for you. Holiday weekends the campground is full so it can seem crowded.
May 31, 2016
My 11 year old girls were not allowed to participate in the kids weekend activites. The cost of staying here easily could and should of covered the minimal cost for all the weekend activities. All around bad experience at this KOA and I have stayed at a lot.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry if they did not enjoy our activities for the kids, everyone of any age is welcome to participate and we ask them all if they would like to. We would never turn any children away. All of the planned activities are free to the children.
May 31, 2016
Staff were very friendly. We thought we were getting a extra wide site, but we couldn't even extend our Awning because it would hit the RV next to us. We thought we would have a fire ring, but not in our "extra wide" spot. Staff was friendly, but sites are to small. We won't use this KOA again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our sites offer a grassy area for a fire pit that we will gladly bring to you. With RVs becoming bigger with multiple slides it can feel crowded at times.
May 31, 2016
Sites were very tight. If someone had parked next to us we would not have been able to put out the awning.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

With RVs having multiple slides and larger awnings it can seem crowded.

This was first time in a camper (normally camp in tents). Worker Bob was awesome and made it an awesome experience for several reasons. He went above and beyond by showing how to set up our camper for first time then helped show us how to work several things this alone made us happy that we even got the camper otherwise it may have been not so fun of a stay.
