We have stayed here each winter as we head to Mesa for the past 12 years and have always enjoyed our stay. But we note some changes since KOA has taken over the operation. First the rates have gone up. $45/night including tax. No more discount for Good Sam or FMCA. Only discount is 10% with KOA card which costs you. No more free USA Today and other newspaper racks are empty. Office staff now made up of work campers. Upscale restaurant will be redone into a sports bar. Just what the world needs more of. No longer can you get your motor home to Lazydays thru the south portal. They still have security at the other gate from 4PM to 7AM. Nice. But still a great resort. Too bad it was half empty in mid March.

This is a gigantic older RV park which was recently purchased by Calam. We stayed free as we had stayed at a Calam park in Mese earlier in the year. It is need of upgrading and Calam has started the process, but has a long way to go. They are adding a huge recreation area with shuffleboard courts, etc. But the real negative is they charge for WiFi through an outside vendor, and the service is terrible. They offer WiFi service in the office (Free) and that is the way to go, but very inconvenient. We stayed in the pull through area and parking is on asphalt. No ambiance whatsoever.

All of the prior reviews are right on the money. A real fine park. But you should be aware that the free Wi-Fi is supplied by TengoInternet and is as slow as anything you will ever find. Slow to log on, disconnects, and slow loading web pages. Management is aware of the problem and is trying to get Tengo to fix the problem. In the meantime, be prepared to be frustrated.

This is a very nice park with paved streets and paved sites. A small problem is that it is located adjacent to a railroad track but very few trains come so sleep should not be problem. For those with pets, the walkway for pets around the perimeter of the park is made up of very sharp stones and our dog choose to walk on the curb rather than the stones. Also, the area surrounding the sites is made up of very fine red crushed rock and is easily tracked into the RV. Hard to avoid. But overall a very nice park to stay in for the train ride to the Canyon.

This park has been reopened after closing of Beaudry RV Park and has been spruced up and is in first class condition. The citrus trees still have some fruit on them and are there for the picking. They now offer free USA Today papers in the club house in the morning. Don't miss the full hot buffet breakfast for $4 which is served in an enclosed patio setting with silverware and cloth table linen. What a treat and a time to chat with other RVers. This park is fine for an overnight or to do Tucson. It may be a bit pricey, but well worth it.

This is a first class park and we stay there every year on the way south. Easy pull throughs. Easy check in and a nice club house The Wi-Fi worked just fine. This year there seemed to be more semi permanent residents, but everything was kept neat and attractive. Closeness to I-40 is not a problem. A great park for an overnight stay.

This is an above average RV park. They have many full sites as they are geared up for the Sturgis motorcycle rally each Aug. Almost the entire park is gravel but the spaces are nicely spaced. No side by side spaces that I noted. The Wi-Fi worked fine as we were fairly close to the office. Not too many trash cans-you have to walk to one central point. The park is right off the interstate. Convenient to get to, but you do get some noise during the day, but night should be no problem. Overall a good park to do the Black Hills area.

As others have said, good for an overnight stay. Right off the Interstate, but no noise was evident. Not too many eating choices in town, but a couple within walking distance. We were able to park so that our roof dish could catch a satellite signal. Very friendly on-site owner.

Overall, a very nice park, but the entry off the busy highway is real tricky as the entrance is small and then up a rather steep incline to the office. There is a small upscale restraurant right next store, but be prepared for big city prices. Ouch. The WiFi worked prefectly and never was slow. The park sits on top of a hill so the views are excellent.

We stay here almost every year on the way back North. The park is well kept and has not deteriorated over the years. The casino is fun, but you might want to pass on the restaurant and buffet as the food is not the best. Inexpensive tho. Best you make your reservations early as the park is very popular. Try to get a spot close to the lake. You can face your motor home toward the water and have a great view.

Overall, a first class park with excellent maintenance and all the amenities. The only downside for us was the daily rate. Even with the Good Sam discount the one night stay came to a bit over $50. Maybe the price reflects the fact that there is a KOA a quarter mile down the road, and we all know how overpriced KOAs are. But the park is an easy off the interstate and just a mile or two to downtown for eating and shopping. I gave it a 9 because of the price. Otherwise a 10.

A very nice park located on the North side of Salt Lake City. Not much is nearby so one must drive several miles to get to restaurants and shopping. Easy to get to from I215. The park is gated so be sure to make arrangements if you are arriving late and get the gate code. When we were there, 75% of the park was fifth wheels whose occupants seemed to be fairly young workers who would leave for the day. But everything was neat and tidy with no junk to be found anywhere. The park is very pet friendly as there is a walking path just outside the fence. (Look out for bike riders on weekends and in the evening). The club house is first class, however, it is closed to the residents use for such things as using the pool table when the manager leaves for the day (6PM when we were there). Overall, however, a fine park.

This is a super good park. Try to get a site that faces the park and the bay. You can put your motorhome in front first and have a have a million dollar view. (May need a long sewer hose or use the neighbors: ask first.) The only down side is that the shrubs line the spots and take up a lot of room. Tough on the slideouts and getting at the basement doors. But the ambience of the park is tough to beat.

Date of Stay:

This is a highly rated park, but probably because of the extensive club house. But it is an old park with narrow streets and orange trees that make it almost impossible to back in a 40 foot motorhome. The park models are mostly very old and not well maintained. Visually, it is depressing. Maybe good for overnight, but nothing else.

Another warning. If you prepay your reservation, best that you stay at the Park as scheduled. You will not get a refund if you cancel, notwithstanding their policy on the website. We have been waiting over 10 months for our refund, and don't even get a reply to our inquires.
