This park is very nice, but it has some aging problems. The sights are gravel and mostly level. My wife and I have been coming here for about 10 years. Acorn is a alcohol free park. I talked to the ranger today and ask him why is Iowa's Army Corp parks behind as far as upgrading come pared to others that we have camped in, such as in Texas. He told me its a slow process getting money from the government. My wife and I like this park because its close to everything we see and do in Des Moines why we are here visiting. We camped at Acorn Valley COE in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground lots of shade in most site. The only draw back we noticed was that it was a perty good distanced to water hook ups, we had to run out about 150' feet of hose to fill our water tank. Other wise it was a great place to stay if you don't drink, There is No alcohol allowed in the park. We camped at Acorn Valley COE in a Travel Trailer.

I did not stay in the campground, but because it does not have a previous review, this one is being posted. My comments are based on a detailed inspection of the facility. This is a nice Corp campground. It has trees that provide some shade for most sites, but they do not interfere with the sites or the paved access roads. There are only 33 RV sites, the rest are for tents. The separate tent only area is also nice. RV sites are gravel and will accommodate most sized rigs, but the bigger the RV the more front to back leveling will be required on about half of them. All sites are 30A service and only a selected few have water hook-ups. There are community faucets for filling holding tanks. Bathhouses were clean and centrally located. There is playground equipment for the kids. All sites have picnic tables and fire rings/grills. There is a small pond in the campground. This appears to be a very quiet place to stay. We camped at Acorn Valley COE in a Motorhome.
