Quiet and peaceful, nice roomy sites.

We’ve stayed at a lot of KOAs. This is one of the nicest facilities I’ve seen. Newer amenities, level sites, friendly staff. The pizza and wings delivered to our site was a perfect touch.

Staff were very accommodating when we asked to be moved. Bath houses were modern but could have used some re stocking and cleaning.

The only thing that would make this campground better is if there was concrete instead of gravel.

Only 1 nite, but plenty to do if it's a bit warmer

Very friendly staff, clean restrooms and showers, and a very safe place to stay. Has all of the amenities you need and want. We will definitely recommend it to others and we will gladly stay here again.

The staff was nice. Had to wait a long time to check in because worker was making a multi site reservation Reserved a cabin, mold was in the bedroom. Staff kindly moved us to another cabin, mold again and it was getting late so we all slept in the loft area. Showed staff next morning pics, they said they’d take care of it

Third time here and always an easy in, easy out. Plus, it’s always clean and well kept. The quiet rural setting is great, the dog loves the place, and we do too! Don’t miss going into to Adel, a lovely town, and having some great food at the Brickyard. A special place, this KOA, and open all year!

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! Larry, the maintenance man went above and beyond in helping us to secure our bikes and kayaks to our RV. He rocks!! This was done on his own time! We love Larry!

We spent two nights, just pre-season. Workers were busy preparing for opening, but they and staff were very available, friendly and helpful. Very nice, well kept camp. Easy access off interstate, in the country, but very close to DesMoines, cute little town of Adel (restaurants), and Winterset (John Wayne birthplace) and a beautiful Arboretum...all definitely worth seeing if you have time.

I'm beyond mad—I'm livid. One morning, a rogue dog (known to you but not to us) attacked our LEASHED dog. The absolute lack of follow-up or any semblance of concern from the KOA owner was such a slap in the face. No apologies, no checking in on our injured pet, NOTHING. You failed us on every level. We will not be returning.

We stopped in March right before Easter on our way north to Minnesota. Off the freeway far enough you don’t hear traffic. Half the park was open, water, sewer, electric. They still had winter hours so they closed at 5. Lady at desk was nice and so were the guys driving around working on stuff. Pond has bass, they weren’t biting for my daughters and me but it was nice. We will come back s

Very nice campground. Appeared meticulously maintained. About a mile off I-80. No freeway noise. Beautiful country setting. We were here in March and it was nice, can only imagine it in summer and fall. We plan on making a fall trip here to meet family for a long weekend.

Good place to stay. They seem to be putting efforts (money) into improvements which is evident in how the campground looks like. Pads by the pull thru are cement, large and have a swing and bbq.

Beautiful KOA park. I only wish we would have been closer to the bath house since we had no water in our camper due to the very cold weather.

This place is huge, I stayed before the main season but there are so many amenities bathrooms were clean. They offer pizza to order on site. I only stay at Koa campgrounds since I'm a long time member and this was definitely one of my favorites. I will be definitely be coming back here during the more busy season to see how it is but my experience was great!! Two thumbs up and definitely worth it!

The site was easily accessible, but we showed up for after hours check and they didn't have us on the list because we booked online. Glad they answered the phone after hours and were able to confirm the early afternoon online booking and get us a site.

We enjoyed our stay at the one room cabins, very clean. When booking the reservation, the lady on the phone was super helpful in getting us booked and making sure we knew where we would be going for our late check in. Bathrooms and showers were very clean! Thanks for a great stay!

We arrived in the evening and the office was closed. I called Brian and he was so helpful and quick to check us in so we could get out of the cold. The park is so well maintained and you can tell they take great pride in the park and the KOA name. Great place to stay for a night or site see the covered bridges.
