The site was clean, the staff was friendly, and the bathrooms were always in great order.

My husband and I stayed at a tent site without electricity. The folks there were absolutely wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The site was excellent, on level ground. They did have a pool, which was in great shape, and afterwards read a couple of books they offered in their game room. Overall I loved our stay, brief as it was. I most certainly will keep this KOA in mind in our travels.

Tanya was very accommodating to our schedule and gave us easy-to-follow instructions and great tips for how to best enjoy our stay at the campground. I enjoyed the beautiful landscaping, trails, and pond and found the campground to be clean and very convenient.

This campground was gorgeous, close to where we needed to go and the people were extremely nice.

The lady was very helpful, we are a small family of three with a toddler staying in a tent only on a rainy night and she offered to gave us a covered shelter for our use near the office in case the weather gets really bad. We stayed in there to get our dinner but we went back to our tent but she was really thoughtful for offering us that place.

Great rate for tent camping. Large and well kept K-9 area. The best K-9 area out of the five KOAs that we stayed at during our road trip.

Cons: a lot of interstate noise. Pros: staff, cleanliness, close to food and fuel!

Tent sites are just a big grassy field so we had dog poop to avoid while setting up - no tent pads or division between. Bathrooms: very old and dirty with lots of bugs and webs - but like that they had a/c.

There are a lot of positive features about the campground. However, my experience sleeping outweighs those positives. The highway was horribly loud and annoying. And the people in the campsite next to us were loud and rude starting well after quiet hours and keeping me up for hours playing music and swearing. I would never return.


We are very sorry about the noise from your neighbors. If we had known we would have spoke to them to respect the quiet hours. We hope you stay with us again.

My stay was very good overall. the facilities were very clean. If your tent camping I would recommend ear plugs for the camp is right off I80 and the road noise is very loud.other than that nice place to stay.

My husband, myself, and our two boys have stayed in SEVERAL KOAs in the past three years. This KOA is BY FAR our favorite! Bob and June are so incredibly sweet and very hospitable. We will be returning for a long time to come and will be referring this site to friends, for sure! Big, BIG kudos to Bob and June!

Great stay!! I didn't need more than a safe and clean patch of grass and I got it. It was nice to relax by the pond before going to bed.

I was travelling with the Hot Rod Power Tour and this camp ground was a great place to rest ! The ladies that checked me in were the nicest people! Thanks for great place to stay !

Friendly & helpful staff. Our tent area was well marked out and ample sized. Loved the pond & trails through the woods. My only complaint is the mirror in the women's rr was not the greatest for a short person to use. A full length mirror would be a nice addition.

Clean and friendly. Traffic noise is high but KOA staff can't control that.

Had traveled from Spearfish SD & made it to Newton KOA after bs. hours. Slept in car over night before leaving early the following morning. It was great to have access to bathroom facilities later pm and early in am. Stayed here a year ago about a week earlier after finishing work contract at Yellowstone. Glad to stay @ this KOA!

Great staff and facility

It was nice and clean, however the grass at the tent sites had not been cut in some time (over 6" tall), soaking everything with dew in the morning.

Nice place. A lot of highway noise, but great views of the night sky. Clean washrooms with super roomy showers.

When tenting you need two things-water and a picnic table. Worst table ever. Dirty paint peeling really poor
Aug 08, 2016
The grass really needed to be cut. Overall, it was definitely not a place set up for tenting. People were friendly and the lots were spacious, if poorly defined. It simply seemed like tents were an afterthought.

Incredibly nice people. Gorgeous area of Iowa and lots of features at this Koa. Bathrooms need work compared to others I have stayed at.


Thank you for staying with us! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The bathrooms were remodeled last summer, I wonder if you have us confused with another park for bathrooms? Hope to see you again!

Boys liked pool. Folks were friendly. They are putting in brand new playground equipment including a jumping pillow. We enjoyed our stay!

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.


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.

We had kids church treasure hunt/hot dog roast. Owners were very accommodating. Kids and adults both had a blast
Sep 28, 2015
The staff was very friendly, the campsite was clean and well suited for our tents. Bathrooms and showers were nice, and the only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars was the Interstate noise. On the positive side the KOA was easy to find!

The hosts were very accommodating.
