As with all my park reviews I'll start with the good. The large pool and area around, the lounge and game room, lobby, and laundry room rate a 12 out of a possible 10...as nice as you'll find anywhere! The grounds are keep clean of trash and if there are longer term renters they are hard to point out. The pads are large for our pull-through, with adequate space between slides, picnic tables, and very nice grass areas throughout the park. The major drawback for this park is the bathrooms. The bath/shower combos nearest our site was in need of minor updating. The painted concrete floors were in need of a re-coat, some baseboard tiles were needed a re-grout. More important...NO AC. Further, using old heat generating flood lamps. A sauna at anytime other than early morning. Walking out into the 95 degree Salt Lake day feels like stepping into a pop cooler! Also...with military/Good Sam discount our nightly fee was $50. With cooler and cleaner (repairs) bath this park rates a 9. Today I can give it only an 8. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park and very well maintained. Not much shade; the trees are still small. Everything worked well. Staff very friendly and considerate. We were taken to our site and assisted in hooking up. Although fairly close together, sites were very nice with concrete pad for motorhome and additional pad for car. There was grass with picnic table. Nice clubhouse and pool. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is VERY well kept. Sites are concrete pull throughs. It is well laid out with some trees that in the future will provide shade. Not too close, but not real spacious either. Paved roads, good hookups. Location is not "the best" BUT it is well positioned off of I-15 and not far outside the city in an industrial type area. Noise is not bad and there are many back roads into the city that will keep you off of the interstate, which is undergoing construction improvements. Great camp ground. Staff is helpful and courteous and as a plus if you ask they will allow you to wash your rig. (Ask first.) We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a relatively new campground, convenient to SLC airport. I stayed here for one night before and after I had to fly out, leaving my motorhome at the airport for five days in between. Sites are clean and paved, with grass and young trees in between. Very well maintained, but negatives are heavy freeway noise and what sounded like some sort of nearby race track one morning. Another irritation was the call center where I made a reservation. The first time, they put me into a very large space, which was corrected by the lady when I checked in and she noticed that I was in only a 32' vehicle with no tow. She put me in a smaller space and gave me a refund of $15. When I made the second reservation, I again was going to be charged $56 and put in a 40' space. Told the lady on the phone that I had been charged much less just 6 days before. So first she gave me the Good Sam discount and then when I argued some more, grudgingly put me in a 35' space for $37. I don't like those sorts of upselling games. but on the other hand, the office staff could not have been nicer, so I suspect someone in the call center is making these decisions. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Parking for oversized vehicles is available at SLC airport for same rate as car parking, but obviously, you cannot "camp" there. Since this campground is only 9 miles away via expressway, it was convenient for an early morning flight. Also, right next door is an RV dealer and service center, which is convenient.

This park is listed as a resort, and it certainly has that feel. The only reason I did not rate it higher is because they do not have any resort activities other than the pool and game room. It is near a walking/biking path along the Jordan River. Laundry room is clean and has plenty of moderately priced machines. Pool is large and plenty of comfy chaise lounges. Game room has pool table, large screen TV, comfortable furnishings, etc. Office staffers are cordial. RV sites are pretty close but adequate. They are level, cement pads with a cement patio and green grass area with a smaller tree. We easily opened four slides and awnings. Hookups are conveniently located at mid-point on the site. Water pressure and 50 amp electric service were reliable. We camped with a 40' fifth wheel with barely enough room to park our tow vehicle. There is overflow parking conveniently nearby if needed. Highway and airport noise was noticed, but not a problem. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Paved access roads and level, concrete sites flanked by a nicely manicured lawn, a picnic table, and a concrete dingy parking pad make this a delightful place to stay when you want to be close to Salt Lake City. Service was cheerful and even included an escort to our site as we arrived. Our pull-thru site was long enough for our 37' MH and connected toad, even without the separate dingy parking pad. Water, sewer and electric hookups were convenient, though 30' distance to sewer required a hose extension. WiFi was strong, but Internet connection was spotty and thruput was mediocre. Laundry was very clean and convenient. Price, net of Good Sam discount, seemed reasonable for the amenities offered. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a densely packed, urban RV park. It is NOT a campground. Units are pulled in side-by-side as close as the management feels it can get away with. That said, it is not necessarily all that bad for in town, close to the airport, stays where the purpose is not outdoor leisure.

We stayed here twice in ten days, two nights each time. We have family in SLC and spent our time at their house, not at the trailer. In addition, our Grandson flew in to join us and the Salt Lake airport is a major hub, making his travel simple.

There are pools, laundry and clubhouse available, but we didn't use them. We will stay here again. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, newer RV park, paved, concede pads, manicured lawns, helpful staff. The negatives were freeway and airport noise, non level pads, and the smell of sewer gas emanating from either the open sewer connection adjacent to our site, (there was no cap or seal on the pipe) or possibly the refinery located to the East. In spite of this it's the nicest park in the area we've seen although it's a bit pricey for off season. We would stay again.

ATT worked fine, we did not use the cable or wifi, satellite reception no problem. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful campground, plenty of room, dog walk area. Service was excellent and can't say enough about the Manager Ric. We had problems with our electronic hitch and Ric showed us how to fix the problem. He was friendly and extremely helpful. This is our third time here and it is one of our favorites.

Very attractive property with security gate entrance. All paved pads with well groomed grass and small trees at each site. Long pull throws. Nice people and accommodating manager. Large laundry room w adjoining comfortable lounge area. Swimming pool for summer months and nice play area for little ones. We would definitely stay again.

We wanted to visit SLC and needed a Big Rig accessible park. Location convenient to I215 & I15 but also between refineries and airport so quite noisy. Though several grassy areas (with pet waste stations) to walk your dog there was no fenced off leash area. Pull thru roomy with concrete patio and grass. Though a secure gated access there is a New RV Rental facility being built next door and parts of the fence were down during construction. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This would be a perfect overnight park if the front desk staff were well trained. But they are bored and inattentive, both on the phone and in person. The park itself is very clean and well designed. The sites are long and wide and easily fit our 42 foot class A with attached car. Easy to get in and out of the campground. Some highway and airport noise. This would also be a good park to stay in if you were interested in touring Salt Lake City. There is a Flying J at the exit for the campground off I-215. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a well groomed & nice park with a few caveats. You choose the length (& cost) of your site when you make a reservation. Sites range from about 30' to 70' long. We had a premium pull thru that was about 60' long. All sites are level concrete and all interior roads are paved & wide enough for easy in/out. The more expensive, longer sites include a parking pad for your car. There's about 10-12' of grass separating RVs so you're pretty close together. Grass throughout the park was manicured & green. Hookups worked fine although the sewer is at one end of your very long site so park close to it or bring extensions. Cable TV worked well. Free Wifi is Tengonet and it curtails your bandwidth based on even minimal usage. There's no shade as trees in the park are young, but that's good for satellite. Both ATT & Verizon had adequate signals (2-3 bars). I'd agree with a previous reviewer that the staff doesn't care much about patrons. When I checked in, they had signs posted saying power would be out the next day for maintenance. I stayed at the RV that day waiting for power to go out (turn things off, etc). Well, the work was postponed & the staff didn't change the signs or bother to tell anyone about the change. That's pretty inconsiderate. Road noise is pretty constant from the freeway next door. As this is an industrial side of town, you have to drive a few miles to restaurants & stores. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We've stayed at this park 6-8 times and have always been pleased with everything. This year however, we called to book and were told that we would have to pay more, because of something they called "dynamic pricing". As it was explained, that if they had limited space they would dynamically change the prices on the spaces left. I was told had we booked earlier we might have paid $42 and then 10% discount, but our rate due to "dynamic pricing" would be $50 which supposedly included the 10% discount. So during busy times, beware you can be dynamically paying more.?? They indicated that hotels do this all the time, so now they are adding this to their procedures. You CAN say that you paid more this year and the park staff told you that this was because they vary the price depending on how full they are. If you look at other reviews which I did, it does appear that we paid more than others who wrote reviews for the same time period.

There's not much need to get a pull-through. The sewer is at the very back of the site, the electric, and water at the front of the site. So unless you've got lots of connections to put out, it's not possible to stay hooked up. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times. It is quite a ways into SLC so it's not real convenient. The park is well maintained but we were not happy with dogs that were running. We complained but one of the people said leashes were not required, yet another said they were. We wanted to use the pool with our grand daughter but the pool was filled with friends and relatives of employees and we were not comfortable. We noticed that there are quite a few more permanent campers than before. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.
