Very expensive cost/night vs. value. We stayed here because we enjoyed this resorts sister campground in Moab, UT. Although it appeared well laid out, half the roads were dead-ended, which meant one could not easily get to the parking space beside the site after disconnecting the trailer. The sites are quite close to each other, and we needed to park beside our trailer. On our first night the sewer fragrance made sleep quite difficult. We were in between two storm sewer grates. Once we moved, we found out on the subsequent nights that it was not the grates, but a sewer sanitation plant nearby. Mosquitoes were hell at night, since this area was once swampland.. The traffic from the I-215 was loud in the morning and evening, but the killer was the highway construction going on at the nearby interchange as well as I-215. The work went on ALL night. Apparently, because of the heat and the deadline, the work often goes until 3:00am or 5:00am. This is not, of course, the fault of the owners; but made for a less than satisfactory sleep. We did ask for an additional discount to compensate for this, and received it. Laundry was one of the cleanest we have used. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would be a very good place if the price was at least $15 less per night and construction was not taking place on the Interstate beside it. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Absolutely one of the best parks we've stayed at - clean, spacious sites with concrete pads, full hookups, friendly staff, and great clubhouse and pool - what more could you ask for! Now part of the Sun RV resort chain,this park is also only 10 minutes from Downtown Salt Lake. We'll definitely be back. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is very expensive for what you get. We had to pay $10.00 extra so we can park our car next to the RV, which ended up to $54.94 because of military discount. If you don't pay the $10.00 you have to park somewhere and I was told it is first come first serve. The RV entrance was not very well marked so we drove into the RV Sales and were not very well treated. At least there was a way through and we could get to the park. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice big, long sites, but ours was not level. Close neighbors, but not as close as some places we've seen. The sewer is located at the rear, so bring a long hose. Our picnic table was right by the neighbors sewer hose, so we moved it, as that was not a pleasant place to eat. The park has some nice amenities, but we wouldn't call it a "resort." There was a pool, but only one umbrella, and no other shade to speak of. In the mid-90s, some shade would be nice. They assured me they had ordered another umbrella when we asked if they had any more. So when it comes in, there will be a grand total of 2 shady spots by the pool...huh. No pool toys for community use--you had to buy them in the campground store. Easy to maneuver, nice wide roads. This RV park was just purchased by Sun Resorts, so they transitioned the internet while we were there. It still worked well, but they have you sign your understanding that it is not to be used for gaming or streaming movies (bummer). No shade in the hot summer sun at the sites. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

1.75 hours to Bonneville Salt Flats rest area and Speedway. 10 miles west is the historic Wendover Airfield, where bombers trained before using Fat Man/Little Boy. Independence Day and Con Air were filmed at the airfield. Climb the original tower and see the Officer's Club and museum. The town of Wendover will eventually have a Bonneville Speedway museum. Antelope Island is a fun stop, and we ignored the nay-sayers and swam at the beach. It was fun, even with the brine flies and shrimp.

Well run and very clean. Some hwy noise from I-215 but not too bad. Great amenities with a clubhouse, pool horseshoe pits, playground and more. Had a little trouble with WiFi but they were changing providers that day so they get a pass on that. Just 10 min from downtown SLC. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very nice park. Pros: Close to the city. Very clean. Sites were not crammed together. Sites were concrete and very level. The spaces were well maintained with a grassy area next to each site and a newer and well maintained picnic table at each site. The roads were large and easy to navigate. The camping area is gated. The clubhouse includes a pool table, foosball, nice little store that carries essentials, RV supplies, and gifts at reasonable prices. Other amenities included a pool, horseshoes, a nice fenced playground, outdoor chess, free coffee, and satellite showers and restrooms. Cons: The park is close to a freeway and freeway noise can be loud especially when the trucks use their engine brakes. This is more noticeable in the sites in the back rows. The park switched to a new internet service during our stay and it was very slow during peak hours. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The park is on the north side of SLC. Very convenient to shopping (e.g. grocery, Target, Walmart, Costco) and many of the attractions to see in the city. Very close to the interstate highways, so there some road noise. However, when inside our camper it didn't bother us. The sites are concrete pads (and not quite level either) with asphalt roads. The sites are VERY close together and the many of the sites are very short. We had a 27 foot travel trailer and it just fit. We could not park our tow vehicle at our site (we were warned when making the reservation this would be the case) and had to park it in one of the overflow guest parking lots. The vehicle parking areas are also very tight and getting in and out was challenging. Fortunately, in our case our neighbors were accommodating and moved their vehicles to give me more room to exit. Despite the crowded conditions, the campground charges a reasonable rate and is very convenient to SLC attractions. The bathrooms were completely private (e.g. sink, toilet, and shower.) The campground is security controlled with gates on the road and combo locks on all bathrooms. The campground seemed secure, safe, and well lit. There is a oil refinery close to the campground. However, the prevailing winds are from the west and the refinery is to the east, so it was rare for us to smell anything from it. We would stay here again. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Olympic Park is a nice place to visit and worth the 1/2 day or so to travel there and tour the park. We also saw their ski jump show which was totally worth it.

Overnight stay and park was excellent. Park is located in industrial area and behind a RV Dealer in a court and very close to I215. Beware lots of construction in area , on I215, and the off ramps to the park. In fact only complaint is exiting from the court to Redwood Road is a bit difficult due to one lane each direction on Redwood and lots of traffic. The park itself has paved roads, speed bumps, and cement pads. Entry into the park is by a coded gate, 24hrs a day. Our site had full hook ups and was pretty level with little shade trees. Park also has cabins for rent. Pool, clubhouse, outdoor large chess board are just some of the things we saw as we drove thru the park. Although close to I215, we did not hear freeway traffic in fact it was very quiet at night. When in Salt Lake Area, I will definitely stay here over the other parks in the area. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is an RV Resort, and they do have nice amenities, clean pool, clean air conditioned laundry ($2 wash, $2 dry) playground, giant chess set, nice community room, 50 amp service, concrete pullthroughs, good water pressure and sewer. We couldn't connect sewer for the 3 days because the connections are at the far rear of the site and electric and water are in the middle. It is just off a major highway, near SLC airport and also in an industrial area with lots of trucks. Noise inside the RV isn't bad, but outside is pretty noisy. Office staff is very nice. Cable worked well and wifi also pretty good. The view of the mountains is pretty nice too. They are now part of Sun Resorts. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to go to the Temple in downtown SLC, learn about the parking beforehand. Most parking is underground, and we drove around and did not find any open entrances. If you need to go to Walmart, go to the Centerville one about 7-8 miles north. It is fairly new and in a very nice area with close mountains.

Second Time to stay here and got 1/2 price for the one night we stayed through Enjoy America but worth the full price anyway! Excellent place to stay in Salt Lake City. Level concrete full hookup pull thrus 30/50 amp sites. Grass between sites and excellent cable and wifi. Directly on hike/bike path along creek. Will stay again.

Very close packed, but they put me in a spot that fit us. Grass between spaces, with concrete pad for RV and vehicle. Some spots have shade trees. Centrally located without being in downtown. Easy freeway on and off, quiet to us. Major road construction as you enter from the north, but no real issue. Enjoyed our stay. Good launching site for touring SLC and surrounding areas. Staff was excellent and very accommodating. Did laundry there and was quite crowded on Sunday afternoon, but the pool is adjacent, along with the Air Conditioned clubhouse, office and small shop that it was no problem. Other campers were very cooperative, and we all got our washing done. $2.00/washer (32 mins) or dryer load (.60 mins) We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Great park. Spotless grounds and facilities. Friendly staff. Convenient location. A great place to rest for a couple of nights. I wouldn't call it a destination park but I can't think of a bad thing to say about it. I only gave it a 8 instead of a 10 because of the proximity to the freeways with regards to the noise. Not loud but you do notice them when sitting outside. Will gladly stay here again when heading through SLC. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.
