Beautiful park with amazing views, sites are gravel and our site (56) was a bit tight for our 45' rig. However, all of this is soon forgotten when you step outside and enjoy the big beautiful trees and green grass all around. The owners are extremely nice and seem to go out if thier way to make you feel comfortable. Lots of trees so the shade was welcoming, some sites would have difficulty with a satellite signal but we didn't. I don't have many negatives to say about this park, the grounds are well maintained and very relaxing. I would definitely come here again. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.

An average park that could be exceptional with updating and reconfiguration. Our second stay here while visiting nearby West Des Moines. This park has a great setting, not far from Interstate 80. Highway noise isn't too bad. The park is just older and has a strange, "KOA" like cramped layout. Facilities are older, and not that clean. If they would remove ~1/3 of the sites, it would make it easier to get around and really be worth the $$. I'd also put the long term, work campers in one section to create more space for the visiting campers. Heavy rains made the down slope sites soggy and muddy. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff is excellent. You are guided to your site and they help you to park. Roads are narrow and turns are tight. Sites are just long enough for a big rig. Car/pickup parking is elsewhere. It is quiet and the pool is nice. Notes on sites 70-90: excellent wifi and satellite TV. But these sites are quite unlevel, and there are no sewers. There is a dump station. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.

The good news the current owner just purchased the park in May of 2017. The park has been here for 45 years, rigs were much smaller than. He has purchased an additional 22 acres to expand and improve. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.

Timberline Campground in Waukee Iowa is our go to campground when we are in the area. It is a little expensive, about the same as a KOA, but its closeness to Des Moines and to Bob's family and friends make it worth the $. As it usually turns out when we have been somewhere before our GPS devices agreed on the route and brought us right to the campground. Sometimes, someplace we have never been before we might have issues, but not today. We were surprised to learn at checkin that as of May the campground has new owners. So far things appear to be as they were before which was encouraging. The interior roads are gravel as is the site. There is a concrete patio. This was the first time for us in the trees but it all worked out. We backed up enough in our pull-thru to get on the patio but still be in the trees somewhat with great satellite signal strength. We balanced all that and we are glad we were in the trees as we had some 90-90 days, highs in the 90s and humidity in the 90s. Just a typical summer day in Iowa. We had some rain and wished there was a little more gravel as the site got a little muddy. And we wished the sites were a little further apart. The hookups were convenient once we settled on our stopping point. The free park wifi was fairly good except in high traffic times. Since we are so close to Des Moines the Verizon 4g and cellphone signal strength was pretty good. As mentioned before this is our go to place in central Iowa so we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very freindly staff. The roads in the park are narrow. This park has a lot to offer, just needs a little TLC. Just far enough from the I80 to be quiet. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice pool. Amenities for kids seem ok. Dog park is a fenced in area of hot rocks baking in the sun. Not great for dogs' feet.

Loved the natural setting--roads have not been bulldozed into a "parking lot" scenario. Individual sites are fairly level. Fairly close to I-80 but no highway traffic noise! Pet park available but no grass--only rock in the fenced area. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a pretty good park, not great. We had full hook-ups but our site and many others weren't level, either side to side for front to back. Our patio was full of debris from nearby trees. Over-the-air antenna TV was ok. Too many trees for our satellite TV antenna and Verizon data signal was weak. Many seasonal sites so on week-nights many weren't occupied. Other campers were quiet. Lots of Father's Day gatherings. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful setting and close to metro Des Moines. Four miles to a spectacular shopping mall. However, if you need a full service pull-through site you will be very disappointed. Sites are short and extremely close to each other. If you have slides on both sides, good luck. We had trouble leaving in the morning due to autos and pick ups blocking our exit. If not for a good Samaritan, we could not have left. Water/electric sites are large and open. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.

We were so disappointed with this campground. We were given a spot that barely fit our rig, we had to move our picnic table and the one next to us just to get in our site. The only place to park was directly across, in front of our rig. We had to move our pickup when our neighbors arrived so they could unhook their pickup. If the neighbor on the other side had not moved his pickup the next morning for us we would have had to back out. Our sewer hookup was underneath the neighbors slide out. Check in was ridiculously slow. The park itself looks well maintained and some of the sites looked really nice. Wifi worked if you are in the office, Verizon signal was good. I do not know how long you have to stay here to get a site that you can function in but we will not be going back to find out. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice park with older but cared for facilities. Setting is nice, it just happens to have an odd layout resulting in most sites being "KOA" close. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed over night in pull-through. The park is very attractive, shady, quiet and well thought-out. A very restful place to stay. GPS directions are a little off so call the park to verify. I would come back again and stay longer if possible. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Motorhome.
