Right next to the railroad and the airport. Was just an overnight stop and was not very restful. Kids loved the pool! We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
Handy to use Trax to visit downtown; Temple Square shuttles are also available (free) for those wishing to take a tour, attend church on Sundays, or attend Music & the Spoken Word (Tabernacle Choir Sunday morning broadcast)

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.
Close to rapid transit.

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.
If you are doing genealogy, the Family History Library is the center of the universe. The experts there will help you get started, or help you with the most arcane questions. Ride the free shuttle to the front door!

Older park but very well maintained. Driveways we narrow with plenty of room for our 38 foot class A. There's also room for a toad either in front of or behind your rig. The water & power is near the front of the site which may cause some confusion. Standard 30 foot power/water cords hook up with plenty to spare. We would definitely stay here again with its close proximity to Temple Square. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.
The light rail Green line is across the street and goes to Temple Square and downtown. No need for a car to these areas. There's also a shuttle to Temple Square. Don't miss either the Choir or organ rehearsal/recital.

Camping right in the middle of the city seems crazy but we enjoyed it. It was noisy-- close to busy street and airport. Clean restrooms and showers. It's a 2 part shower with a dressing area which was great because I'm a mom camping by myself with my young son. I was able to shower privately while he sat in the dressing area of my stall. Staff was very friendly and helpful to a single mom camper. The tent sites were pretty big with a paved parking spot, a picnic table and tent pad. They also had water and electricity in the tent sites. No fire rings but you are allowed to bring a fire pit with legs. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Tent.
Bring your own grill or fire pit ( must have legs)

Pricey, but the nicest KOA we have encountered. If visiting downtown Salt Lake, it is very convenient, right on the light rail line, with just a short ride into downtown, for a reasonable $ 1.25 (senior) one way fare. Sites are roomy with a nice patio and table. Utilities are easily accessible and work fine. Lots of trees. We couldn't get satellite, but they have cable although they don't carry ESPN for you sports fans. If we were in SLC again, we would stay although expensive. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very old park conveniently located near downtown Salt Lake City. It is in a very rough neighborhood and if you have children you need to be with them at all times. You would not want to walk around at night. Some of the spaces have been improved and are very nice - others are really cramped together. It has a tiny dog area that is all mud/dirt and they could do much better. Garbage overflows the dumps ters and the playground is in an area behind the office and hard to see/find. We will likely stay again because of the convenience but for such a large park they could do much better regarding security and cleanliness. A larger dog park would be nice as well. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.
You can walk about 1/2 a mile down the canal to the most wonderful dog park imaginable. But be prepared to see lots of people camping along the canal. Don't walk it alone unless you are walking your huge guard dog or have a concealed permit.
Grocery, fuel, etc. all close.traveling • November 2014
There is a nice public path along the Jordan River accessible through a gate at the far end of the RV park where one can walk the dogs to an off-leash dog park.pebru • April 2015
The Family History Library is incredible. Bring a little info (or none) and you get a personal tutorial. Then go to the research floor and the 1-on-1 help gets even better. After that you can work from home. And it's all free! Dirty Johnson's (a bit of a drive) did a decent grooming job on my dog.slowspokes • April 2015

Very close to all of the normal touristy sights to be found in Salt Lake City. Close to a grocery store. Close to the metro line and there is a free shuttle/tour van which will take you to see important LDS church sights.shovelguy • June 2015

VERY HIGH WATER PRESSURE: Use a regulator. If going downtown, use the train directly across the street. Information in the office. I give extra credit for recycling. I carried my recyclables across SD and WY.Michael47 • July 2015
They have a free shuttle to Temple Square, but the light rail comes every 15 minutes. Also, beware this is Utah - wine is only available in the state liquor store, and lucky for many there is one located across the street and one block east of the campground.SeaTeacher • July 2015

The campground is located next to the fairgrounds and it was easy to get to but a bit confusing on where to turn-in. Turn at the stop light and they have plenty of parking to the right near the office. The Temple Square provides a free shuttle but you must inform the office personnel that you want a ride. Nearby is the best Mexican Restaurant we have ever eaten at... the Red Iguana. You will probably have to wait for a table but it's worth it.dandg • September 2015
There is a great path out the back and along a river where you can walk the dog or ride your bike without any traffic. We had a very pleasant bike ride but there is also an off leash park there. We spent one day at Temple Square but don't miss the Capitol building. It is spectacular too! Interesting shopping and area at Trolley Square. SLC is a very clean city and traffic isn't bad at all for a city this size.thekites • September 2015
