Iowa State Fair is soon coming!

ImageIowa State Fair 2012 runs from August 9-19, 2012, located at 3000 East Grand Avenue, Des Moines, IA. Acts this year include: TobyMac, Larry the Cable Guy, Miranda Lambert, Hank Williams Jr., Journey and many more along with many other events!! Check out the event schedule at for grandstand events!

Newton KOA is only 30 miles east of Des Moines right off of Interstate 80 (Exit 168). Very close and convenient for camping during the State Fair yet out of the fair traffic and crowds. Come and relax in one of our 30 or 50 amp sites or pitch a tent in a tent site in the shade and relax. Our pool is very refreshing and we have free wi-fi along with many other amenities.

Race Weekends!

With Iowa Speedway being right on the opposite side of Interstate 80 (exit 168) from us, we always have the privilege of having a campground full of race fans on race weekends!  It’s a very exciting time for us when the fans begin pulling in the night before the big race and setting up their RV’s or tents for an action-packed weekend!

Seeing familiar faces is always a pleasure as is meeting new faces for overnight campers that are on the road and need somewhere to park on their trip and weekends when campers want a campground with a lot of ammenities!

Located just 30 miles east of Des Moines, Newton KOA is the perfect spot to set up your rig or tent and still be close to so many Iowa attractions.  Located just off of interstate 80 on exit 168.
