Next to Hwy 215 with some road noise. The RV pads were narrow and close together. We had to park our F250 in the overflow lot in order to accommodate the slide out. Nice park, very well maintained. Lots of grass. Wifi is great.

Will stay here again, only because of its location to relatives. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We were visiting family nearby so didn't care much where we were located. Industrial area not close to anything. Nice walking path along the river. Closest store is 2-3 miles away - south on Redwood.

Stayed here 4 nights on our way to Bryce Canyon. This is our 2nd stop at the Pony Express and love it. Handy to downtown and everything Salt Lake City. Not the cheapest kid on the block but very good value for your money in service and layout. We had the supersize site in the front row. $4 a day more but worth it for the extra space. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need your rig cleaned, ask at the desk for a card for Clean Rite Power Wash. This guy is awesome and reasonable.

Don't forget to take in downtown Salt Lake City. Great place to spend the day.

Heard about this RV Park from a fellow traveler the day before we left the previous place and boy are we glad we did. It was about a 6 hour drive from Vegas but that was because of the awful traffic through Salt Lake City. This is a very nice smaller RV park with ample space to fit any size trailer. Our Premium Deluxe site had a large grassy area with a large concrete pad to park your trailer. We needed no leveling blocks. Because we were only 1 night we only hooked up water and power but if we had to hook the sewer we might have had to pull out the extension. The washrooms and showers are single occupancy rooms and very clean. There is no designated enclosed dog run area but they provide pick-up bags at all the grass areas. This is a very clean park with lots of space between sites. The owners did mess up our gate entry code so when we got back after dinner we couldn't get back in. Fortunately, there was a worker still there and he let us in. But all in all, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The city of Bountiful is close by with everything you need including restaurants, grocery stores, and gas. Make sure they enter your gate code correctly.

Very nice campground with cement pads. Easy access and surprisingly quite given its closeness to the freeway. This is not a place that families may enjoy as much as "senior" RVers. If in Salt Lake this is a very good option. We would return. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Surprised that no one has mentioned the need for at least 30' of sewer hose in order to reach the sewer pipe from a motorhome with the toad connected! We had a nice paved 20' x 60' site with grass and picnic table however the sewer connection is back alongside the toad. Everything else (water, sewer, cable, wifi) was fine although our water hose froze solid the night we were there. Nice clean private bathrooms with showers. No fenced dog park although plenty of grass to walk dogs. There was no odor the night we were there. There is an electric gate with code for re-entering the park. Easy access. Didn't have any issue with leaving the toad connected contrary to some of the reviews from April other than the need for a long sewer hose if the coach is pulled forward on the pad. Rate was with a Good Sam discount. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 nights so we could go visit the Temple Square in Salt Lake City. The park is beautiful with cement pads, picnic table, and a well manicured yard. For 42 a night we expected a wider site. Ours was 60x20. For 5 bucks more we could have had a little wider, but think they are executive sites and are only 15 of them. My husband made reservations and didn't pay attention to how narrow the sites were. We never stay in a park that is under 25 wide. Such a pretty park and would have rated it a 10 otherwise. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

An immaculate campground with cement pads and manicured lawn areas. Clubhouse is also topnotch and while not used, the pool looked clean and inviting. Traffic noise was noticeable but not overly objectionable for our site and equipment. The smell however was almost nauseating. I am not sure if it was the sewage treatment plant about 1 mile south or the nearby refineries or both but it was disgusting in the evening and nights (2). I think the owners and management really try to keep a great RV park but with the smelly neighbors, I would keep on traveling. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one weeknight in early August and had a level, cement, full hookup site with 30 channel cable TV. The cable worked fine on our bedroom TV but the front TV had a split screen for at least the actual cable channels (network channels were OK). Their Wi-Fi network was OK. Most of the sites in rows A and E are extended stay customers. Along with other sites throughout the park used by the long term customers, there are maybe 100 sites taken by such customers. Except for A and E, all sites are long, cement pull-throughs. There is also a separate area at one end of the park with about 10 cabins. In addition to the bath facilities (and laundry) in the lodge/office, there are 3 more bath houses in the park. Each has 5 or 6 individual bathrooms with sink, toilet, and shower. The pool is much too small for a park this large. I saw no recycling. Yes, there is traffic noise from the interstate and, with a wrong wind, a foul stench from a nearby industrial company. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed this park. It is spotless, quiet and very well laid out. The sites are spacious, and most of the rigs that stay here are higher quality. We didn't see any "permanent" residents. The office staff was very helpful, and made sure our stay was comfortable. The entrance is gated, which adds to our peace of mind about security. The neighborhood is kind of industrial. The mountain views are nice. It is extremely easy to get into the park and the sites, no matter how large your rig is. A couple of drawbacks. There is a refinery across the street, and if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction, there is an unpleasant smell. I'd also like to see them set up recycle bins in addition to dumpsters.

A beautiful, well-maintained park. It's only drawback is being close to the interstate and an industrial area, so it is very noisy. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A very clean, well kept park in an excellent location only 6 miles from downtown Salt Lake City. Sites have concrete pads and our site had ample length and turning radius for our 45' motorhome. Every site has a grassy area with a tree small enough not to effect satellite service and a clean picnic table. Gated entry. Easy access from I-215. Good 50 amp power. There are many shorter sites, therefore I recommend a reservation to ensure a comfortable size lot for your larger rig. There is a Flying J about 1/2 mile away if you need diesel.

We pulled in quite late without reservation and the on-site manager escorted us to a spot quickly. The park is extremely well manicured and the sites have concrete pads with spots to park a vehicle. The largest sites are 70' long. The trees are really small and provide no shade. Access was extremely easy and large rigs will have no issues. There is a pathway system that runs by the campground that is for walking/cycling. Great to take the pooch out for a run and the kids out on bikes. Wi-Fi did not work on Apple devices but the manager hooked me up to his personal Wi-Fi for the night. I am told they are fixing that issue. The laundry was excellent although one machine jammed when I put money in...it was immediately fixed by the manager. There is a pool table and lounging chairs in the main building so you can occupy yourself. The pool was not open yet but looked pretty nice. I was going to give 10/10 but for one negative point: The campground is close to some kind of treatment plant and the smell was fairly noticeable at times. Will certainly return on our way south next year. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Yes, the campground is next to four overpasses and we were parked right against the fence; however, we did not find the noise overly disturbing. Front desk staff was exceptionally helpful, assisted us get set up, offered extension cords, etc. There is also a long bike/walking path outside the grounds. It isn't a state park, but well located to explore Salt Lake City. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I have never been in a nosier place. Located at a major HWY intersection truck and cars all day long. Staff is so so except for the I guess maintenance people who must have been fired from Walmart. Left with water spots on the side of the rige due to lawn sprinklers. The land scaper was even here working on them and when I said something to him he just shrugged and said noting he could do. In place the park is falling apart and it's not that old. Best part is the nice long pull troughs biggest problem is they won't let you into the park with your toad hooked up so if your just planning on spending a night passing through you still have to unhook. THERE'S BETTER PLACES TO STAY Oh I forgot the two refineries very close by and the mesquites from there swamp next to the office. Nice smell We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.
