We are halfway through a month long stay here. We have found this to be a well managed and cared for RV park. As others have said, it is not a quiet rural location. You'll hear traffic and airport noise. We did not find it annoying or bothersome. The Park's road are well paved and wide making navigation easy. We had a premium pull thru and we're glad we did. It fit our truck on the parking pad and our 43' tour hauler and both motorcycles with ease. WiFi was OK but we upgraded to the premium service dues to telecommuting work needs. There is a full array of stores just to the north plus a Flying J. We'll be back when in this area. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed four nights. First, this is your basic parking lot of RVs and you are definitely close together. We got a Deluxe space and I'm glad we did - most of these sites both had a cut-out space for your car, but also every site had a mature tree on it which provided shade. The less expensive spots mostly didn't have the trees which in the sun and heat are more prized than even the parking spaces! Otherwise, they have some resort features - a pool and nice kids' area, but really nothing else. You're off the freeway and there's a bunch of noise, especially if you're in the cheap seats. Due to the fall slump, there was a nice discount offered, and I would be very unhappy paying much more than what we spent. The main good thing was that you're very close to downtown Salt Lake City, and not far from I-84, so the location, even if mostly industrial, is workable. The bathrooms were generously sized and with decent water pressure, but the hooks were rather far away, rending it a bit awkward for showering. Not a big deal, of course, just a quirk. We might stay here again, but it's a pricey place for sure. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Temple Square is definitely worthwhile. Whether or not you are LDS (Latter Day Saint or Mormon), it's part of our history of the Western part of the country. Plus, check out the Family History Library across the street. Even if you're not into Genealogy, it's great fun for the whole family. Nice open air mall right by the Square for eating and drinking. Also, the Bonneville Salt Flats - yes, it's 120 miles west of the city, but at 80 mph, it goes fast.

Except for the cost, I think this was an excellent RV PK. This is the third time we have stayed here. It is close to the interstate, level paved site, FHUs w/ wifi and cable, grass between sites, very neat and well maintained. We did not use pool, their bathrooms or shower. The interior roads were very easy to navigate with our 40' mh w/toad. There is road construction on that exit but there are traffic lights. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park and as others have indicated it's close to Temple Square and the Capitol, both worthy of a visit. Price paid was for a premium pullthru on the front row. Easy access and level. All utilities worked. I feel the rate is a bit high but it seems to be the way "resort" parks are now going. We were here for 3 nights and didn't use any of the facilities but enjoyed our stay. We did not notice any road noise and had no issues. We wold stay again if we were in the area. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Tabernacle in Temple Square has free Organ recitals daily at noon which we would recommend. A meal at the Red Iguana is also worthwhile, really good Mexican food, they are known for their different Mole's, just be prepared to wait at any time of day!!

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.

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.

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.
