Stayed 4 nights for business. Stayed in a deluxe cabin. We just couldn't get over how spacious it was.Love the jumping pillow, jump shot and the mining. The bath house is stunning! You can really tell these owners have put a lot of thought and pride into this park.

Was in the area for 4 days for a business meeting and was really impressed with the entire experience. Cabin was clean and well thought out for placement and comfort. When traveling I usually try to stay in cabin at campgrounds rather than hotels and this is one of the best I have been to.

KOAs run the gamut. Some 'pack them in' but this one has spacious long sites with good hook ups. Staff pleasant and helpful. Nice dog park with two sections. Nice rest rooms and pizza available at the office. We would camp here again. Wifi only can be used for emails. Verizon reception OK

This is one of the best KOA facilities we have seen, even though it is a small rv park. Of course the prices reflect the few Des Moines area rv parks. Lots to do but some of the extras cost extra. Pool was good. If you don't like having you neighbor 3 feet away, don't take a 30amp "buddy" site...
