Was fairly easy off freeway to find. Staff gives you a lot of information about the park. Office area in lobby for guests. Has car/rv wash, good cell, and wi fi. Park sits in town, with buses, or light rail just outside. Uber service is available. Park does have fulltime residents. Park has lots of shade trees, so your satellite might be iffy, but they have cable. The plus to this park is it's in town location, and would stay again. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed out stay. Our site was clean and easy to access. Staff very friendly and helpful. Friday and Saturday breakfasts were a plus! Like many KOAs, a bit pricey. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

A very nice park, well laid out, trees at most sites. Most pull-thru sites have a grass area with two picnic tables, shared by two sites. Park is close to downtown, and easy to get to off I-80. This is one of our favorites. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have a big rig (approximately 65' with t0w) and definitely had to disconnect to 1. Park the rig and 2. attempt to get our Explorer off the road. It wasn't until we were there for a couple of days that a staff member told us it would be ok to park on the grass. The space between sites is narrow, although the services are fine. The WIFI was excellent, which we appreciated since more often than not, that's just not the case. While it is incredibly close to downtown if that's what you are looking for, itdoesn't leave you feeling very safe. Think next time we'll look further out. Anyone with a big rig (42 ft or greater) may want to pop for one of the 6 more expensive, and slightly longer sites at the Park. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a good place to stay to go downtown on the light rail system or just go downtown in general.

Security seems to be a big deal here because of proximity to the city. However, they do have a strong presence of monitoring from within.

The pool was fine. The hot tub is small.

We had to have the RVDoctor come out to fix our fridge. He said this was the best place to stay of all campgrounds in SLC in comparison to others. (Highly recommend the RVDoctor as noted in KOA campsite pamphlet. He answered his phone at 11:30 pm and was out to us at 8 am. Spendy though ($160) but we needed the fridge fixed. Super nice guy.)

Campground was a bit loud and sites were a little narrow/short. But it was fine overall. The only thing I really think they could improve upon "right now" would be the litter on the site. That litter that has been lurking over time: wrappers, cigarette butts, other little things that have built up over many weeks. The security guy zipping around in the golf cart was very nice and asked if he could give the dogs a treat.

In summary, good for in and out of town. Wouldn't want to stay more than a night because it's very "urban." We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Not sure the light rail is worth the money to go downtown to see temples at night (beautifully lit up). $20 for four people and I don't think parking would have been that much. I would inquire at the desk first, I think before buying light rail tickets. Also, restaurants close fairly early in the evening in downtown SLC. Lots of panhandling and signs saying not to give money. Interesting.

This big park was busy when we visited, with lots of kids and traffic. We were offered an escort, but declined and found our site easily. The park was clean and well-tended and we had no trouble negotiating the roads or getting level in the site. All utilities worked as expected; we were warned of high water pressure at check-in, so we used a regulator and had no trouble. Wifi was solid and free. Wish the K-9 park wasn't located right next to the dumpsters, showers and camp vehicle maintenance bay -- it's hard for pups to mind their manners when there's so much noisy activity around. But we wouldn't hesitate to stay again. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is on Temple Ave a short distance from downtown. Sites are about 15 feet apart. Plenty of room for awnings to be used - not that it was needed - there are plenty of shade trees. Restrooms were clean as was the dog park. Others have complained about the train noise. It is a little louder than we are used to living a few miles from a train but did not keep us up or wake us in the morning. No noise from the International Airport a few miles away - planes must take off away from the city. It was nice to have a motorhome self-washing station on the premises after a long drive. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

Wonderfully shady, especially in certain areas of the park. For an urban park, this is an excellent choice - centrally located, close to the interstates so it's easy to get to (and to get around to the suburbs), and right across the street from the Trax public transportation. The folks in the office are friendly & helpful, and the breakfasts on summer weekends are a bonus. Our one complaint is that our electric cord came unplugged during a very hot day, when we were away for the day visiting relatives, and we suspect it may have been due to the outlet not being a good tight fit anymore (probably from heavy use). Otherwise, a very pleasant stay. We have been here multiple times and like to use it as a base camp when visiting the area; we will return (and be more careful about the power hookup!) We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice shady urban park. Huge tree canopy killed my sat radio and TV. Pool very nice. Staff very nice. We had an end site with patio which was nice. I stayed here with my parents in 1972. Easy access from I-80. Expensive, but close to the downtown attractions. Would stay again. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

Lots are very close to each other. Personal were friendly and helpful. We were able to get into the lot while hooked to the toad, but had to back out of the lot. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here before but were disappointed this time. The office staff were more interested in ordering lunch than being friendly. We were rapidly given instructions and information, had a map and a dog package thrust at us (no question as to how many dogs we had, and we were uncomfortable correcting) and sent out to find the site on our own - no escort. No trash pickup provided. Sites were occupied by obviously permanent residents who have another set of rules than those we were given. We saw many sheds in the permanent area as well as decks.

We stay at many KOAs, including KOA Journeys, but the Salt Lake City KOA is off our list. The price is high for the service you receive. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We had not been to SLC for quite awhile, so we wanted a place to stay to do some touring. We went with the KOA, but were not too impressed with it. While the roads and sites were paved, fairly rare for a KOA, it had some negatives that were tough on us. Probably the biggest one for us was the noise level in the area. A train track nearby had a seemingly constant supply of freight trains going by. Many in the early morning hours, like 2 or 3 AM. And each and every time the conductor would sound the horns as many as 9 or 10 long blasts going by. And then there was the noise from the nearby airport as jets took off and landed regularly and helicopters circled at random. The park itself is huge, with over 1000 RV spots, most of which are permanent or extended stay rigs. That makes for quite a bit of traffic in and out around the clock. The park does offer free WiFi and our air card signal was good here. The views from the park of the snow capped mountains were very nice to look at. I needed to use a remote satellite dish though as the many large trees make the vehicle mounted dishes useless in most cases. There is a pool and small hot tub. I chose not to use the hot tub though as another camper that had 7 small children and was camping in a pop up camper used the hot tub daily as kind of a bath for all of the kids. We were recommended to a local Mexican food restaurant down the street, the Red Iguana. It was a great recommendation, as the food and the service were fabulous, and the prices were reasonable. There is a nice paved walking/jogging path next to the park that we did use to run on one day between the rain drops. I probably wouldn't come back here if in the area, just too many negatives for us. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice older KOA in the middle of Salt Lake City. The park has lots of mature trees for shade so satellite use will be hit or miss and you will need a portable unit. The cable is typical 30+ channels of SD TV. Our site was their deluxe pull through which was long enough to easily accommodate a 45' motorhome and connected toad and wider than the usual KOA site. The utilities are placed mid-site and worked well with very high water pressure. The park staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a free shuttle to Temple Square and the public trolley runs just in front of the park. While there is some street noise the nearby airport and train noise was very minimal. This KOA could be a 9 if it wasn't for the sporadic WIFI and the tight turns and narrow roadways you have to use when maneuvering in the park. Large rigs will find it tight going while getting to and from your site. As with all KOA's the site pricing is very high for what you get. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

This very large KOA is similar to most other KOA facilities, in that it is extremely over-priced, though with very good facilities. Our rate includes a 10% KOA discount, for which you have the pleasure of paying $27 annually. The only reason we stay here is the free shuttle (provided by the LDS Church, not the KOA) which goes directly downtown. Note that the tree coverage is quite extensive, so you might not get a good satellite shot. The laundry was reasonably priced and clean. We will probably stay here again (unfortunately) since it is more or less the only game in town if you want to get to Temple Square and the Family History Library. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
