We really enjoyed our stay and this was one of the nicest campgrounds we have visited. The owners have really paid attention to details, escort to site, wood delivery, friendly and prompt service. There are many seasonal campers, but the weekend sites were very spacious and well maintained. We especially enjoyed the pool, lots of seating and umbrella tables. They have a pool basketball hoop and a lot of pool "noodles", which we enjoyed. We camped with our young grandchildren and one of the playgrounds was directly behind our site, which was a real plus for us. The park is very spacious, and it appeared that most of the seasonals had golf carts, which did not affect us at all. Unfortunately, we are used to riding our bicycles throughout the campground, but the roads were not paved, and there are some hills to contend with, so it just did not work for us. Even so, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this campground.
We really liked the park, close to I-40 and yet very quiet. They had a really nice gift shop and the owner could not have been friendlier. We were there on the last night for their seasonal barbeques, which was really good. We would definitely return.
This was a beautiful state park. The sites are so spacious. The scenery was absolutely beautiful, especially as the sun is setting. I never saw such a stunning color display. They do lock the gates at night, it is very secure and quiet.
The very best part of this park is the landscaping surrounding the pools and hot tub. Very well done and so relaxing. Also, the staff were very pleasant and eager to help. That includes the gift shop staff, also. The cites are narrow, but level, and we really did not spend a lot of time sitting at our site. It is a busy place and I would not stay in the first row on the south side of the pools. There was too much traffic noise. One row back would have been much better. It was a little pricey, but worth it. Would definitely return.
We stopped overnight during a road trip out west. The camp is easy to find, not too far off of the interstate. The office staff was very friendly, and we had no problem with pulling into our site. The restrooms were very clean. During the overnight, my husband had a medical emergency, which thankfully turned out well. I cannot say enough about the genuine concern of the camp host and the emergency squads. The campground is about 20 minutes west of Des Moines and it definitely has a small town community feel to it.
