We have stayed here at least 4 times on our way across the country - one night stays. One of the nicer KOA?s based on location. We have found it to be quite nice and clean. We have a class A motor home and the pull through spots are gravel covered but level. the spots are a reasonable size - last two times we have had an end site with a nice grassy and shaded area for the dog. We have found it very quiet and peaceful. Easy access from the freeway but no freeway noise. The little lakes are nice to sit and look out at. Prices keep going up so it is on the high end for the Midwest which is the reason for the 3 rating.
Planes, trains, and automobiles - not exactly quiet
This park is located right off of a major roadway, airport runway, and train tracks. If you're looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place. The lots are so close together you hardly have any privacy. If you are tying up the dog he will easily be at your neighbors trailer or checking out other nearby dogs. The rocks they use for the roads are the big rigid ones, so leave the bikes at home. That was a disasterous combo for the kids. Boat rentals were not operating during our stay, so that was disappointing. Pool was okay. Walking paths - once again covered in large 'ankle rolling' rocks. Website highly overstates what the park actually looks like.
We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.
Did not meet expectations
We have never traveled to the Quad Cities area before. Found this KOA close to the airport and highway and decided to stay there for a month. We made it 10 days (10 days too long). Upon entering the park, you can see the hot tub and pool area. People were sitting in the hot tub smoking. YUCK! Checked in and were escorted to our site. After parking the RV I specifically asked if the traffic was "always this bad". I was told that it calmed down at night and that it is only local traffic. Um...NO! All hours of the day and night you see and hear the roar of traffic. I (fortunately) got to leave for 6 days while he stayed there. Upon my return, I walked the grounds like I do every morning and I could not believe the trash scattered about. The "private" area is unsightly and the backside of the lake is storage for old trailers and RV's. On the other side of the maintenance shed is supposed to be more walking area but the trailers of trash and debris and the unkempt areas made the bugs and stink so bad I had to turn back. I walked through the middle area of the campground, which I guess is reserved for nightly campers, and it seemed okay. Tight spots, some concrete and some pull through. Upon returning from my walk, I went to do some laundry. The doors are locked with a keypad (says open 24 hours). I walked back to the RV and then up to the store to inquire. After battling my way through a cloud of cigarette smoke (not 25' from entrance as per law), they were not there - said out on the property or something. Would have been nice to have the code when we came in. Ended up going to the laundromat that night. On the website they indicate an entrance gate. Not operational at all while we were there and the exit was not for the most part either. Don't worry about sleeping in on Saturday mornings, the trains will get you up early enough. Very few spots (except maybe the private area) has a view of the lake - the map is deceiving. I think that is enough said about the property. Needless to say, we got out of there as soon as we found another place to go.
