What a nice surprise! Large lobby. Lots of vending. A coffee place upstairs. Clean restrooms. We've passed there several times and didn't realize it was an information center.

Clean and not so creepy like other ones... Also across the street from 2 gas stations, and there's a casino in the same parking lot area! An all in one rest stop.

I Love this rest area!! I am a truck driver, and believe it or not, for a rest area, there is a lot to do here. There is a Casino, gas stations, and restaurants all within walking distance. I love staying here when I get the chance!!

Always friendly staff and clean facility. Nice gift shop and small cafe serves pie and hot chocolate. I had some fresh legs today was great.

Super sweet staff. Very homey feeling, even so far from home. Nice shops upstairs. Informative and helpful.
Elderly gentleman was very caring and curious about our trip. Made sure to tell us to get rest and be safe. Very kind.
Super clean place, bathrooms cleaner than I've ever seen any public area.
I'd visit even if it was my hometown.

This is the nicest rest stop welcome center you'll probably see. Always comfortably heated or cooled. Back in January we had to stop for several hours during a terrible blizzard with our four kids. It really wasn't a bad experience at all. There's a casino and a burger King, along with a few gas stations within walking distance too!

It's a fantastic place for everyone in the family to stretch their legs, use the bathroom, and get a quick snack.
The upkeep is professional park level and you're going to feel welcome and safe.

Great stop for lunch. We parked and walked across the street for burger king and took it back to the rest area to eat. No smoking through the entire place.

One of my favorite stops between mn and Iowa. It'd always clean, when you see staff they ate friendly. There is the map on the wall as well as Iowa maps to take with you. Well lit and comfortable. Also right next to a casino and gas station if you need more than a rest stop.

Very nice rest area. We stopped here to have a brief feeling of what Iowa is and found a special building with great stuff to tell about it. It's an old red barn, typical to the Western US. Helpful information at the desk on the second floor. Down on the grass, slocal artist made homage to women soldiers. Beautiful face if Iowa!
