Kind of a weird place. We arrived at 5:05pm and found the office closed at 5:00pm (during high season?!?). While we were perusing the after hours check in information the staff left the office, locked the door, and walked passed us without a word or any acknowledgement. Pro: Appears to be a well-maintained facility. Showers and restrooms were clean. Laundry, pool, and activities. Seems to cater to long-term snow bird residents. Cons: Extreme distance from camp site concrete pad to pedestal hook ups and dump. (Used every inch of my electrical cable. To use the dump I had to maneuver off the pad to reach.) No cable TV. No over-the-air TV. Multiple WiFi access points but we were unable to connect to any of them using provided log-on info. Very unlikely that we will return.

Negatives: - Price: This is one of the most expensive places we've ever stayed that wasn't in a resort area. The campground and amenities do not support the high price. WiFi: During a 24 hour stay, wifi was usable for about an hour. No cable TV. Location: Campground is immediately adjacent to I-15. Lots of highway noise all day and all night. Tight quarters: Most customers appear to be long term residents. Lots of old cars and trucks. A German Shepherd was running loose in the space next to us. Nit-picking: $5 penalty to use American Express. I understand AmEx merchant fees are higher but $5 is called gouging your customer. Positives: Clean restrooms and showers. We frequently travel to Salt Lake City. There aren't a lot of campgrounds in the metro area. In fact, you'd be better off showering at the Flying J and parking overnight at WalMart. This was our first and last stay at Mountain Shadows which is just a poor value.

Individual private toilet/shower facilities are exceptionally clean. Park grounds are clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Although close to I-215, we were not bothered by road noise. WiFi is adequate but could be better. Easy access and just a few minutes from downtown. We frequently travel to SLC and there aren't many RV campgrounds in the metro area, but this one is our favorite.
