This was the best place we have stayed to date in this retirement celebration journey of 5000 miles. It was easy to access and had lots of activities and a beautiful lake. We only stayed one night but could easily have stayed a couple of weeks. The site had easy access and was level with picnic table, pavilion, and fire pit. The sunset was remarkable. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
While this campground is adjacent to Utah Lake, the water level was so low we could barely see the water. Fortunately each site has a shade over a table on a concrete pad since it is very hot here. Some of the other sites in Loop B have some afternoon shade from trees. The staff members were very friendly and accommodating. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Utah Lake State Park offers its RV and camping guests clean, spacious campsites within a picturesque setting of high mountains and farmland. The park is just 3 miles from downtown but be aware that the front gates close and lock at 10pm each night. The only quirk about the grass on the property is that the entire campground is peppered with goat-head thorns. We camped for 2 weeks with two dogs and enjoyed our stay in a pull through site. No sewer sites and good quality 30 amp. For the area, this is the best gig in town for the price. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Great fishing and cycling in the area. Nearby shopping and restaurants but you feel like you are out in the country with quiet nights and fresh air.
Best parts were the scenery and the showers (hot and powerful). Spaces were spread out well. Excellent options for walking: there is the jetty around the lake, the nature trail (short and a bit scary) along the river inside the park boundaries, and the trail along the river just outside the park with horses that goes for miles. A couple of downsides for me were that there was lots of litter and a couple of times there were people idling their vehicles in front of the bath house. Once the truck was there for at least 30 min. The second time it was the guy cleaning the ladies room. And, yes, the bugs were bad. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a pull-through site with water and electric. Blacktop sites and roads. Nice big sites picnic tables with canopies. Nice views of the lake and some mountains. The lake is pretty big. We would camp here again. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

As others have mentioned, the bugs here can be pretty intense. We enjoyed our stay here. The sites are well spaced, and it was very quiet during the week. Lots of opportunities for boating and water activities. Our Verizon MiFi has worked well here. The scenery in this campground is outstanding with the lake and mountains. We would stay here again.

We shared a two-site space with family. There was more than enough room for both vehicles - a 40' motorhome and a pickup/camper. As others have noted, be prepared for the bugs. Our screened-in bug tent fit right under the site's picnic table canopy allowing us to sit outside during the day and evening and enjoy our meals - bugless! Campground host (a full-time RVer like us) was very friendly and stopped by to notify us of problems and fixes with the water system. We would stay here again.

We were inundated by a variety of large winged bugs on our overnight stay. Perhaps the nearness of the lake is what causes this. Staff at gate was friendly as was camp host just across from our site. Showers needed a thorough cleaning and small trash pick up. Only a few sites have tree shade (and only in the afternoon)although every site has a picnic table under a ramada. Appears to be mainly geared for folks enjoying the water sports on the lake. We would be hard pressed to stay here again. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
This was an okay stop for a couple nights, but it seems like budget cuts may have taken their toll on this park. Trash dumpster was left to overflow for two days. Ranger presence was very limited. Mosquitos were a problem which is to be expected this close to a shallow lake. Not everything was negative. All sites were well spaced with plenty of privacy and all utilities worked well. No cable or Wi-Fi was available but we had plenty of on air TV channels. We may or may not stay here again on future visits. It depends on the season and what other options are available. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice State Park with paved roads and sites. Most sites are long enough for big RV's. We had a spot on the lake, which was nice. It is close to the city, but with very little noise. Great place to relax for a few days. No problem with services and the dump is easy to get to when you leave. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are well spaced. No shade. When we were here, there were very few sites taken. There was no grass but lots of cut weeds. Toilet was fairly clean but could have been better. We had expected to be able to see the lake and had expected lots of grass. Wrong. High water plants blocked an view of the water. We were going to stay 4 days but stayed 2 as we had prepaid. Would only stay here again if we could not get in any place else. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed in site A10. Cons: this site had a covered picnic area but the way the sun hit, there was absolutely no shade from noon til sundown. It's a bit of a hike to get to the beach. The worst part are the bugs. Even if there was shade in the afternoon and evening, the bugs make staying outside impossible. Pros: easy pull through, semi private, price per night. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are big and easy to get into. Lots to do in the park. There is construction on Route 15 right now though so you might want to check with the park about how to get there. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, large, paved lots - typical of a state campground. 30 amp breaker tripped early several times when the hot sun was on the power pedestal. Showers in loop A only. Showers have no temp control. Was scalding hot one day, but OK the next. Loop B men room lights were out of service. Front gate was not manned during all hours - suspect they may be understaffed. Beach was not bad, but more litter than you would expect in a State park. Nice park, but could use some TLC. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
