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. (Don't remember site number) We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We just stayed in the park area. Pilot gas station within half mile, RV park is next to the freeway for easy access. Noise did not bother us.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

There is access to Jordan river valley bike trail at the sw end of the park.

Legacy Event Center Dog Park great off leash dog park behind the fair grounds. Enter by the DMV and drive to the back.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

The Jordan River Recreational Trail is accessible directly from the campground and offers miles of paved trail for biking, walking or running. The campground is about 5 miles from the downtown attractions in Salt Lake City. It is also near the airport.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

We loved the adjoining bike trail and easily rode to downtown SLC, about 5-7 miles one way.

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.

This park would be excellent if it weren't for the area it's in. Specifically, the Salt Lake City Sewage Canal runs along the north side of the property and smells horrible. We were in one of the farthest sites from it, and we still couldn't spend any time outside. The management should alert potential customers to this. Besides that, the sites are paved, as well as the access road, and are very well-kept. Lawns are lush and well-groomed. Staff were very nice and helpful, and their community room is very nice (pool table, foos ball, card table, kitchen, etc). Water pressure was fine but the water is extremely hard and left concrete-like water spots on anything it touched. Power was an issue. Low voltage kept us from using more than two appliances per leg (50 amp) at a time. Wifi was decent to poor. The utilities were poorly located. It was the first time we've ever had to purchase a sewer hose extension (which they sold at the office for $20). A look down our row showed that everyone else had to do the same. The park has a security gate, but it's also right on the bike path. That would be an advantage for exercising, but a problem for security. My bicycle was stolen during the day, which prompted us to buy locks and chains for everything (bikes, grill, table, chairs, etc). The park is in an industrial section of town with smells and smog from multiple refineries next door. The price we paid was a monthly rate. We had one of the wider pull-thru sites, which was helpful. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The University of Utah is repaving the parking lot where the RV sites are so they have a limited number of sites at the Pony Express RV resort. Even without the discount, this is a very nice RV park. It is very easy to get the park from the interstate but the park is not noisy. They have wide streets and paved sites. There are different lengths of sites. We got one that is the second longest and there was enough room for the RV with the toad behind it. There was a picnic table at each site. The park is adjacent to a trail next to a river where you can hike, bike or take the dog for a walk. Everything was clean and well kept. We did not test the internet but noticed that there were different levels of internet access. You got the basic level free but had to pay for faster access. We enjoyed our stay at the park.

Love the RV park. Cement pads that are level, grass areas with picnic tables. Easy pull-throughs, pool and playground if you have kids. Very friendly staff.

When we were there they had a power outage that was not their fault. It was due to construction next door to them. However, our neighbors knew we had left out dog inside the RV and went out for the day. When we got home and found the power out my DH went up to the office to find out what was going on and was told that it had only been out 10 minutes. Our neighbors told us they went up to the office over 2 hours prior to our return and told the office they could hear our dog and were concerned about our dog. They say they were told that pets are not the parks concern. While I understand that they do not want to be responsible they had our cell phone number and could have called to let us know that this unusual problem was happening. Luckily our dog is fine. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We requested and received a spot facing South toward the open area bike path. A great place to walk the dogs. This park is very clean, well kept and nice to stay at with large spaces. Easy to reach off the Freeway, a little north of town but not inconvenient. This was our second stay there and we would gladly stay there again. This time we stayed there a week and found plenty of restaurants to enjoy and places to explore. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you can request a space facing the open area south of the park. Best spaces and no one in front of you to block your view.

This is a clean, well-staffed park that is convenient to the highway. They do it right here: ample room, well-groomed sites, and full hook-ups. The clubhouse is attractive, the pool is heated and there are bike/hiking paths just outside the property. The park looks brand new. The manager on site does a great job with his staff and he treats customers well. Great job, Pony Express! We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed our stay at this park. It is very clean, well maintained and the staff is very friendly. They have a "community" rom where you can sit on comfortable couches , in front of a fireplace and a large screen TV. Easy access in and out of the sites and park. Would definitely stay here again.
