“Nice campground ”

Reviewed Feb 16, 2017

Overall Rating

This is another campground we have been to many times due to the location near our children. We have been camping here for over 12 years. We have camped in the H, D and C loops as these are the ones we prefer.

The sites are spacious, which seems to be the norm for COE campgrounds. Sites are electric only but there are spigots around and fresh water is available at the dump station also. We have never had an issue with the electricity even during very hot Iowa summers. Some sites do require a bit of leveling but not severe. This campground is popular and books up quickly. We have experienced some times where the bugs were bad, and others times where they were tolerable. Again, this is Iowa. The frustrating part due to popularity, is the wait time to dump as there are only two dump stations for the whole campground. The dump is easy to access though.

The campground has access to a local bike trail and biking through the campground is popular.

The shower houses are kept extremely clean and monitored during the day and cleaned daily.
Dog poop bags are stationed around the different loops so there is no reason to not pick up after your pet.
Prairie Flower is close to Ankeny and Des Moines with all the various activities the cities offer.
