5 Reviews of Newton / Des Moines East KOA
Family Friendly

We tried to stay here on probably the hottest day of the year. It was just wayyyyy too hot so we made sandwiches and decided to drive through the night, but it wasn’t this KOA’s fault! Very friendly staff. Tons for kids and families to do. My only complaint is that where we were, tent spot #1…there wasn’t really any soaration of the tent sites. People moved in beside us and were literally in our site because there wasn’t anything stopping them. Probably a better place for RV camping over tent camping.

Our Favorite

The owners are fantastic! The campground is well maintained and the stocked pond for fishing is a relaxing spot. Stop by and spend an evening. Well worth it.


Newton KOA

This is the primary location for camping in Newton. It’s right off interstate I-80 and is very close to the Iowa Speedway.

There are places to go tent camping but it’s primarily setup for rvs. The tent camping spots have a picnic table and fire pit.

The RV sports are pretty nice, most have the usual hookups. This place can get pretty busy when there is a race going on.

There is a creek in the back and some pretty easy hiking trails to explore. There is a fish cleaning station near the creek. They do also have a pond with bass and bluegill. They also have a pool by the office but it’s currently being painted.

Overall this is a pretty nice KOA and it’s very clean and maintained. You can hear the interstate but you get used to it.

Great Place

We were able to stay in a great spot. WiFi was great and the area was clean. Campers near us caught a couple of bass in the pond. We saw a lot of overnight campers come and go. There is I80 traffic noise, but didn’t become obnoxious. The on-site facilities were closed due to COVID, but was still a fantastic weekend.

First to Review
Close quarters..

Stayed here the weekend of the Indy Car race. Site was very small some people didn't have room to put out awnings. The sewer pipe from our neighbor was at the end of our picnic table!!! Sewer connections were uphill from the sites

Cost was $65 a night.

The pool and facilities were nice and clean. Staff very friendly
