2017 – Cherry Glen ACoE Campground, Ankeny, Iowa

This is our third stay at this campground, so my review will be a short one.

Previous reviews: from 2013 and from 2015.

However, it is nice to visit family and friends too – and that brings us back to some places again and again. I’ve been reminded that there are advantages to that too. On previous visits we learned the campground and this time we put that knowledge to use as we made advance reservations for a site we knew we would like.

As you might guess, not much has changed since our last visit. The campground is still a great one with big, shady sites. We got one of the sites with water so we didn’t have to fill the fresh water tank upon arrival. The 50 amps came in very handy as we endured some 90 degree days.

One pleasant change is that my Verizon 4G signal is better than on our previous visits. We got a fairly solid 2-3 bars.

The place was packed out over the weekend, but rather empty during the week – something to keep in mind as you consider staying here.

This place still gets a thumbs up and will be our northern Des Moines campground of choice on our next visit.
