Nice park in the middle of a corn field! Since I'm a farm boy I felt right at home. Extremely large pull through sites and a lot of them. The park can accommodate any size rig. When you are in Amana be sure to hit the local German restaurants! We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate averaged for our stay including PA discount. Nice quiet park with some quirky hookups. Sites are long but designed for 2 rigs end to end. If you get to the site first, you can pull thru. If not, you back in. If the first rig is not forward enough, your connections may not reach the pedestal and you'll have to ask for another site. Getting another site is usually not a problem since this place is so big and has so many sites. 4 rigs can connect to the same power and water pedestal. Your water and power connection may be on the passenger side of the coach. All utilities are at the rear of the site. Water pressure and volume were good. Roads are gravel. No fenced dog area. I walked my dog up and down all the roads and it took me a little more than 30 min. Wifi worked well for email and Facebook. Antenna picked up several stations. When you turn off Rt 151 onto C St, get ready for a LOT of porpoising. The concrete road surface is fine, but the slabs are VERY uneven. At least it is only a 1/4 mile to the park entrance. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

"Field of Dreams" movie site is about an hr away. Lots of people there on weekends. Amana Colonies are worth a day to visit the shops.

Campground host was very friendly and we were escorted to our site. Although the park wasn't even close to half full, many sites were reserved due to a rally. We were given a site where we backed in and shared a buddy pedestal with the folks behind us who were already parked. Their toad trailer overlapped into our space which normally we wouldn't mind. But it affected our ability to get close to the buddy pedestal. Our hookups were on the wrong (passenger) side and our electric cord and water hose *barely* reached. To add to the frustration, despite being in a gravel "pull thru", the site was very muddy from recent rains. A real mess. Lastly because of the split hookups, using the sewer dump at the site was impractical and we used the dump station on the way out of the park (which was convenient and easy).

There were many sites still empty the next morning and we don't understand why we couldn't have been assigned a more practical site for our 42' motor home. But we were told this was the only site available.

On the plus side, the rate through Passport America was very good at $19.

This is our 2nd time visiting the Amana Colonies and our first stay in their RV park. Because of the impractical buddy hookups and the mud, we would not stay here again. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

As said before, basically a large field with long sites back to back, but they try to use them as pull thru if not busy as was the case while we were here. The hook ups all good, no cable but ok over the air signal. Staff very friendly and helpful. We joked about a site with shade but she did face us so the afternoon sun was behind us to enjoy sitting out under the shade of our awning. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Huge park with grassy sites. With Passport America the cost is very reasonable. Perfect for going to visit the Amana villages and or a quiet rest stop. Our dog loved this park as there was so much grassy area I took him off the leash and threw the ball for him for a while. Our site was quite a bit un-level. Our auto level system kept hunting. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very large park. We were there when it was sparsely populated. There is grass between each space and some trees. The pull through sites are very long, even the largest rig and tow can fit easily. Convenient location to visit the Amana Colonies. We had EWS which were good locations. WiFi did not work well. Laundry was reasonably priced and clean. We would stay again. Quiet. We stayed in a 28' motor home with tow. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a huge campground with facilities for events and gatherings. I was there in early May when there were only a few RVs in the park. We were scattered around the park so everyone had plenty of room. I can't imagine what it'd be like if full. I was escorted to the site in drenching rain and the man was very helpful getting me hooked up. The laundromat was excellent and the bathrooms OK but nothing special. Good wifi. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Our second visit in three years. The utilities were good and it is fine for an overnight or a couple of days. On this visit the wifi did not work, strong signal, no connection to the net. Office seemed unconcerned, it must be my computer as no one else complained. I had no trouble the night before or the night after at other parks. I realize there can be problems but the attitude was less than satisfactory. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here three nights 9/25, 10/2 & 10/3. and really enjoyed our stay. One of the three days the dust was quite bad but the other two it was not an issue. They move a LOT of campers through here and do a great job. There were rally's going on while we were there and while we were not part of the rallies we met some great neighbors. We had full FHU's and all worked well. We would stay here again especially during Octoberfest! We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

Have stayed here before for access to the Amana Colonies, Kalona and area. We don't mind the open field feel, but the non-stop dust from the gravel roads remains something the owner should have figured out by now given the consistent negative comments. Other than the roads, it is a very good park for the local sites. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed first weekend of October for FROG rally. Park in good shape with hookups placed in middle of four sites. All utilities worked well although some folks might need longer shore power, water, and sewer hoses due to placement of utilities. Close to the colonies for shopping, eating, etc. Good place for rallies with building and tables and chairs for rally use if needed. Fire rings with wood provided and staff friendly and will lead you to your site. Good time at park and rally. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second stay here. We just happened to hit it for "October Fest" weekend, so no passport america was accepted, used good sam discount. This is a very nice park, very well maintained & clean. Most sites as level grass. Some are full hook ups - but the sites farther out are water/electric only. There is a nice 4 station dump station. This park hosts lots of activities & rallies. There are nice events centers. Staff is very helpful. You will enjoy your stay here. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dont miss seeing the amana colonies. Lots of interesting history & shops to find unique items. Especially liked the 1868 meat & smoke house. I believe it's the longest continously open meat shop in America. The brats & sauerkraut is the best we've had. :)

We arrived to find two Rally's in progress and Octoberfest. The gravel sites were all taken so we were parked in the field, but did have 50 AMP electric. They were picking corn close to the park so air was full of corn dust. Plenty of roads through the park to walk the dogs. Very convienant to downtown area. Would stay here again.

Went for 3 days to attend Oktoberfest. Made reservations online MONTHS in advance, yet were still put out in the back 40, grassy area, with maybe 10 feet between our door and the camper next to us (though the park was only 3/4 full). Twice in a row they have done this to us, though there were much roomier sites available. Opening our awning it was literally less than 2 feet from the neighbors slide out. (Last year we couldn't open our awning, no room). Trees are almost nonexistent in the RV parking area, and you have to drive around and find your own picnic table and fire ring as there aren't enough to go around. The cost of $32.00 didn't include online reservation fees - and was for electricity and water only ($35 includes sewer). Nothing to do at the campground itself - must go into town for activities. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
