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.

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.

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

Sights so narrow that sewer port was where next trailers stairs were. Awnings overhang not next site. Only one bathroom for all campground.

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!

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. :)

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.

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.

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.

Friendly staff. Good for an overnight stop. Nice kamp if only the I80 noise pollution didn't interfere.
May 26, 2016
We will stay at the Newton KOA every time we pass through Iowa!
May 26, 2016
Not the normal KOA, no staff assistance to site. Grounds nice but sites need to be more level. Everyone was leveling at their site. Close to HWY hear trucks. Bathrooms nice, pool great hopefully expansion will have larger& flat sites.
May 25, 2016
Would have liked a sound barrier for the road traffic
May 25, 2016
The campground is ideal for short stays while on the journey. Clean, very well maintained with extremely helpful personnel. We have stayed here before and would not hesitate to stay again if I am traveling across the interstate.

We enjoyed our stay. The host was friendly.
May 23, 2016
Felt welcomed and met the most friendly employees ever. But...We are country folks and weren't used to the I-80 truck traffic all night. There is no buffer between you and the highway.

A little noisy next to I80.
May 21, 2016
Very close to highway. Loud trucks all night. Sites very close to each other. Not likely to stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

One side to being easy on and off of I80 is there is some noise from the traffic.

Everything about the campground was fantastic except for one thing that was the sound of the vehicles on I 80 basically kept us awake all night
May 17, 2016
Only stayed overnight.Owners very nice people.Excellent wi-fi
May 17, 2016
Had a great experience and enjoyed the area. You were very accomadating and super friendly. Thank you.
May 17, 2016
Would really like to see the power hooked back up at the tent sites. I have sleep apnea and unfortunately need to sleep with a breathing machine...meaning I need power 😩 While camping. Unfortunately also do not own an Rv. The tent site were laid out nicely with trees and a fire area but the power unhooked. I understand tents aren't where the money is at. still awesome stay will b backTha

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have tent sites with electric and primitive which are both readily available.

Very accomidating we had a birthday party and they gave us a spot with a large side yard to accommodate my guest's, friendly staff, clean grounds, and facilities.

Only downside is the traffic noise.

Very helpful staff. The entry from the city street is very rough and needs to be repaved!
May 06, 2016
This as a nice KOA. Friendly Staff and nice camp sites. Pet friendly with a dog park on site.

Easy in easy out.

The staff is friendly and helpful. The park is neat and clean, well maintained. Although the park is close to I-80, traffic noise is just white noise.
Apr 27, 2016
Located near an interstate creating traffic noise. Campground and personnel are very nice and helpful.
