Location is a bit far from walkable restaurants and nightlife. The television in my room did not work and although the staff did everything they could to help make it work it just would not.
Limited room service options. Late night dining not available. Rude Manager that would not honor an email I received that confirmed a sleeper sofa. We were up charged for a roll a way bed.

Clean and friendly staff. Very clean, the pool was warm which was a plus. Was great facility with excellent accommodations and service. The breakfast had a decent amount of variety. The room was clean. Breakfast included was very well done. Lots of great options offered and food was fresh. Location to Airport, Cleanliness, staff was fantastic!!!!!! It was a privilege to stay here. The staff was friendly abd nice, the room amazing.
The hit breakfast was better then I expected. Not fancy, but very clean and quiet with good amenities. The guy in the breakfast area was a little over the top.
He was a bit growley pushing people through like cattle. We lost electricity for a few hours one morning which would have been troublesome if we had an important meeting to be at. The fire alarms also went off at one point. The hotel was smoke free, but there were smokers hanging out within 2 feet of the door pretty much at all times, at all hotel entrances.

The room was clean and comfortable. The mattress was quite hard but the down comforter and pillows made up for it. The restaurant had friendly bartenders and good drinks.
Didn't try the food but saw what others near us were ordering and it looked yummy. Overall we had a great hotel stay and I would go here again. Once we were in, however, the food and the coffee were just fine. We had a double bed room and both beds felt completely worn out.
The mattress' dipped in the middle. Could not get comfortable, poor nights sleep.

Almost like boondocking except they have electric hookup. Need to go to North end of parking lot opposite road entrance and you may need long 30' extension cord unless you are only RV there.
Free parking but a donation would be reasonable. Would definitely stay again. Not an "RV Park" but much better than Wallyworld. The most positive thing I can say about our time here is that the camp hosts were super nice.
Stay away if it has been raining or is expected to rain, especially if you are a heavy rig, as the place becomes a mosh pit. Other reviewers have provided sufficient details. Excellent for big rigs or smaller rigs and campers. The entrance is in front of the cemetery on Dean St or you can go through the fairground. You could get shaded or not shaded spots and they only have a few sections that are 50A.
There were a few trees we had to avoid so it wouldn't scratch the coach but it was overall perfect. Lots of places to walk and also close to downtown Des Moines. This is my second review. We stayed for another month. They now offer a monthly rate! If you're here when there's not an event going on, it's like having your own property.
Don't anticipate the campground entrance gate on Dean Avenue to be open; usually only open when big events are going on. Drive east and turn right on Hoover Ave to head up a hill to a campground gate. If you turn on Vermeer Lane, that's okay too. This brings you in Gate 5 on B Ave. The campground host no longer lives in the house office in the campground. I was told there are only FOUR sites with 50 amp full hookups. We got an adapter that had 2 amp male to 1 amp female.
Most of the posts have 2 or more amp outlets. This time we camped in row C of Area 2. We haven't explored much of the other areas, but Area 2 and 3 are the most popular and probably the most level. We had no problem leveling our 40' fifth wheel. If parking below a hill, beware of water runoff during storms. We ended up occupying about sites with our extra vehicles; the host never confronted us. Someone was out mowing pretty much everyday.
If the grass is getting too long around your site, flag down the mower and they'll take care of it. Very nice staff all-around here. Great place to watch fireworks during July 4th. Quiet here except during the holiday and the car show. The biggest issue I have with this campground, where we've stayed in teh past, is that approaching from I, the entrance road is almost impossible to see and the sign reads parallel to the road Adventureland Drive such that you're passing it before you see it.
Other than that, we really like this for a one or multi-night stay. If the tornado alarms sound, as they did last evening, head for one of the cinder block bathrooms called comfort stations on the campground map. Fortunately, while we got lots of wind, rain and some hail, the tornadoes which precipitated the alarms bypassed us! Entrance is difficult to find, and others have complained about it.
Adventureland signs are confusing and some are inaccurate. The only telephone number I could find for help was the hotel reservation at Adventureland Inn. The receptionist there was untrained, had no idea of how to direct me to the campground, gave inaccurate directions and instructions three times, despite the fact that i was only yard away. When I eventually got to the campground office, during check in I felt that the person checking me in didn't have time or the interest to answer my questions reasonably, because the office closes at 5 and it was 4.
Most campers arrive for registration late afternoon early evening. So it makes no sense in a big park to close the office so early. I reserved a pull through with 50 amp, water and sewer which I got.
But 5 minutes after I plugged into the power it shut off. When I examined the box, it had thrown the 30 AMP breakers!!! In a 50 amp box. I called the Adventureland Inn, which is your contact after 5 PPM, but the receptionist knew nothing about the campground or maintenance??? She tried calling the campground office, despite me telling her it was closed.
Eventually she asked someone, who knew how to send out maintenance. Sure enough, maintenance showed up and said someone had installed 30 amp breakers in a 50 amp box. They changed the breakers and power was fine. The fifth wheel to my left had two vans and a truck parked?
The fifth wheel to the right had a van, a truck and a Harley, and three dogs staked outside. The camper opposite has a dog outside yapping non stop. This campsite could be really good, but appears to lack strong management. Very difficult to find entrance.
Amusement park, hotel, and casino make it hard to get around, especially in the evening when you have to check in at the hotel. Rules allow late night noise which is not good for those traveling through.
Sites are spacious and shaded. CG is usually full on the weekends. We camp there a number of times every year and usually have to get there Thursday AM to get a site.
Restrooms are cleaned every day but with the usage of the CG they get messed up pretty quick. All in all it is a very nice CG. There is a large pond, recreation area for the kids, horse shoe pits, hiking trails, boat access to the Des Moines River, large tent camping area, ball fields and a number of shelters available for rental.
We realized going in they did not have water and sewer hookups, but still enjoyed the place. Friendly campground host, came to our site and visited - got acquainted. Would certainly go back again.
