We like this urban RV park very much. Nicely treed, with spacious sites on pavement. Wi-Fi worked most of the time, and the place was quiet. Newspapers at the office, good Verizon, good T-Mobile. We liked the Toonerville Trolley which runs right by the park office, and the free van which takes you into Temple Square. Just down the road (to the east) is one of the finest liquor stores I've ever seen, and we live in California! As to supermarkets, forget about it - it is miles to the nearest upscale market. The ones in the park neighborhood are all Mexican, which is okay unless you're looking for Starbucks coffee or bagels. All in all, we'd go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is in a great location to visit downtown SLC. There is a gate out the back to a park path along the river that leads to several other parks as well as an off-leash dog park. They have a two car/rv wash's one with 13.5' bays for big rvs. The laundry was big and worked well. It was very clean too, the staff were doing a great job at keeping everything clean, event the washers and dryers. The WiFi worked well 90% of the time, which is more than I can say for most parks we have visited on this trip. The trolly stops just up the street, so you could make it without a toad. We would stay here next time we visit Salt Lake City. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very beautiful, clean park with access to bike and hiking trails adjacent. Excellent Wi-Fi and public transportation was across the street. You could park here and not use your automobile. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
For being in the middle of the city (the not so good part) I did not expect much, but pretty darn nice resort. A huge resort, very nice staff, nice sites with plenty of room. and good location to visit the sites in Salt Lake. I would come again if I was passing through. One weird thing though I have never heard so many helicopters at night! But still slept well. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a great location for down town access. The campground is huge. Has a nice store. The sites are on blacktop if you like that kind of thing. Not really a grass area, a island with grass and a small tree. The only down part for me is that there are a lot homeless people walking around was a little worried being in a tent trailer We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is our second time here and now for a month. This place Is the place to stay in SLC. The trees are mature and offer shade throughout the day. Roads and sites are paved and pretty level. It is quiet and safe. There is no security and it is not in the best neighborhood, but we have had no problems at all. I even left my expensive road bike unlocked a few nights and it was still there. Don't let the area worry you. the park is 2.5 miles from the Temple, there are plenty of biking routes and great places to walk the dog. Commuter train and bus routes both adjacent to the park. We come to SLC several times a year and used to stay at the other place in town. This location and feel of the park is much better. Didn't use the pool or hot tub but plenty of people are. Most of the sites are long enough for a 40 plus toad to stay hooked up if just passing thorough We camped here in a Motorhome.
Reservation confirmation in email said the site was a 61 foot pull thru. When we arrived, the space is 42 feet at best. No problem as we had to disconnect the toad anyway. When we arrived at 7 PM on a Thursday, dinghies, trailers or tow vehicles were blocking roads as they unhooked. So we had to wait a lot. Not Rver's fault as the park is very tight. Obviously built when RVs were 30 foot at best and not towing. Utility pedestals seemed in poor condition though all worked OK except for fuzzy cable. Sat dish not usable due to big leafy trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very large RV park that is close to the city. It's perfect if you are planning on visiting Temple Square, etc. We found it nice for the kids to have a heated pool and pavement for their scooters. The train is very loud in the middle of the night, but a fan did help. We noticed a few full time residents had security cameras set up and there were signs to keep items locked up around your RV. Just an FYI. However, we didn't feel unsafe, just cautious. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry room had lots of washers and dryers. If we have business in SLC again, we will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The Salt Lake City KOA is a large park. One portion is for long term or permanent RVs and the other is for the shorter term guests. We were in the shorter term area but it still had workers who were living here for months at a time. The RV beside me had a license that expired 10 months ago. Our area consisted of asphalt roads and parking pads with sculpted concrete patios that you are allowed to park your toad on. There is also a picnic table on each pad but no fire ring. Our site was a pull through but not long enough for a large motorhome and a car. The hookups are what I call side by side. You share the hookup pedestal with your neighbor. This puts you about six feet away from the other RV. The water pressure is 110# so be sure to use your pressure regulator. There are lots of trees that have gotten tall over the years and they now provide nice shade but limit the use of satellite dishes. I moved our automatic dish all over the site but could not get DirecTV and since you are not allowed to put anything on the grass area I couldn’t check to see if the dish worked there. The Wi-Fi is strong and works well until the workers get home about 6 pm. Then it gets really slow. One problem with the trees is that they drop a lot of debris during the spring and it is not cleaned up by the maintenance people. They mow the grass areas and do not use a grass catcher so all the clippings and debris from the trees remains on the ground and oftentimes under your RV. This is definitely an urban RV park and it is about a mile from the airport and about the same to Temple Square. The light rail goes right past the front of the park. Unfortunately, the park is in a very low income, high crime area. I saw homeless people hanging around the front of the park. There is a very trashy motel adjacent. The train yards are about a mile away and they seem to put the trains together from about 4 am until about 7 am. Then they take them away. The trains blow their horns a lot during this time. Like many parks they seem to make lots of rules and then they do not enforce them. They have a 15 year age limit on RVs but there are quite a few old ones here. One across the street from me is 20 years old. The long term residents walk through our site all the time – as often as 5 or 6 times daily. This will not be our first choice for a return visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an urban campground, probably not in the best part of Salt Lake City. If you come here hoping for some peace and quiet, you will be disappointed. This campground is central to the city and city activities; it is close to the highways and is close to public transport. Yes, you will hear trains at night. We stayed here for nine days in early October after spending the past few weeks away from civilization. We were craving those city activities, those quick meals, those drive through Starbucks. This campground satisfied the need. We had a pull through with full hookups; the water, electricity, and even cable were all perfect during our stay. We did have a backed-up sewer pipe one morning but they resolved it within fifteen minutes of reporting it. The first weekend we were there the campground was very full, a conference was going on downtown. Other RVers surrounded us. Over the next week, the park emptied out and the following weekend the park was only 25% full. There was very little intra-park noise, but you do hear the light-rail, the airplanes, the helicopters, and the trains. Most of them are far enough away it does not keep you up all night, but you can notice them if you pay attention. The price to stay here nine days was reasonable and the onsite laundry was one of the better ones we have seen. The playground is smaller, but the toddlers spent hours burning energy on it. Would I recommend this park? Yes. Will we come back? Yes, if we are in Salt Lake City. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, level paved sites. Very clean, large restrooms. 125psi water pressure, so make sure you have a regulator on your water supply line. Quiet campground with easy access and quick check-in. Awesome dog area! You can walk your dog along a beautiful creek and even has a large off-leash area. Best we have ever experienced for our two med/large dogs! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Best KOA we've ever stayed at. It is very close to downtown with services very close. The best Wi-Fi ever. We were able to stream TV on our smart TV. Beautiful landscaping, level paved sites, great laundry, pool, & playground. Well stocked store in office. We hated to leave! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Crowded close together sites. If you are the type of RVer that likes to bother your neighbor, you will fit right in. We stayed here one night passing through town. Friendly staff. Good dog walk area on north end. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this campground for a midweek 3 day stay in SLC, and it is just about the only show this close to town. The rate shown includes the daily rate of $47 plus $6 in tourist taxes. The weekly rate is worth it if one is interested in staying that long. The park warns customers to lock up their bikes and a quick look in the neighborhood suggested this was good advice. The tram across North Temple street is very convenient for getting to Temple Square and all the interesting things to see and do there. For cyclists, the Jordan River Parkway Trail is right behind the campground and leads to other trails for many miles of off-road riding. Many of the sites enjoy day-long shade from mature trees. Sites varied in length and our 30 foot RV plus towed fit comfortably in a 57 foot site. Longer sites were available for the same price. Cable TV did not include public TV, so we used our antenna for over-the-air viewing. We enjoyed our stay in SLC and recommend this site in spite of the high cost. The next time we're in SLC, we'll probably stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shore Services 30/50amp, sewer good, water @ 110 psi. Wi-Fi is very good. AT&T cell phone is fair. Sprint Air & Verizon Air Cards work fair. Due to the fair the cell towers were very busy and caused access problems. Cable is good. The area we stayed, the sites are asphalt and there is an area to park your tow vehicle beside the trailer only it is very tight. There was enough room for my trailer, but the truck would barely fit beside the trailer. No room in front. Roads into the park are city street and inside the park are all paved asphalt. When coming into the park the light rail train blocks which way you can enter or leave the park. Your GPS probably won't be correct. You can enter the park from N 1460 W (Garside St) if you are going east on North Temple. If you are going west on North Temple you can turn north into the park from North Temple. Didn't use restrooms or laundry. To far from our site. Directv Satellite was accessible from our site, but some may have a problem with the trees. Payment can be by credit cards. They have built some new sites for monthly tenants which are very nice. Very long and double wide with a storage building on the site. They are suppose to be rebuilding the area between the main area and the new monthly sites. These will probably be monthly sites, also. The service area at our site and some others near by were in very poor repair. They need to inspect their sites and make proper repairs. This is the only place to stay if you want to stay close to Salt Lake City or go to the LDS library. The office personal were very nice and helpful. There is a free shuttle to the LDS library. Our rate is for a week @ $190.27 We would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really helpful staff , did everything possible to assist when I had to replace house batteries. Level sites, high water pressure, steady 50 amp power, great location, good roads and lots of trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow!! What a great KOA. Great sites that have a paved area for your toad or tow vehicle. Sites are close together on the hook-up side. Great WiFi, showers and bathrooms super clean. Pet runs for your furry critters. Huge campground which is quiet for sleeping except for a very few trains. Campground well kept with friendly, helpful staff. Lots to do in the area. Plan on staying for awhile. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We found this park to be VERY BUSY and crowded, with narrow roads for access and egress. Not difficult to find or get to, but the street naming in SLC is for the birds. Although I chose this park for the name (KOA) and the location along our route, I will probably not stay here again due to the crowding. Sites are long enough for a truck and 32ft trailer, but the side to side is narrow (be friendly with your neighbor!) We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you want to visit the Salt Lake City area, this is a very nice park to stay. Long, level, and concrete pads. Most of the sites were shady also. The staff was courteous and helpful. It is a very good KOA; better than many other KOA's we have stayed in. It has all of the amenities of a KOA with a free shuttle into town. Also had a clean laundry area and security at night. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We stayed here in a 37 foot fifth-wheel. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Big KOA. Easy maneuverability for big rig. Outstanding Wi-Fi. The location is ideal for sightseeing in Salt Lake City (SLC). City Tours will pick you up at the campground and provides an overview of the city and Mormon life and is worthwhile. The free KOA shuttle will take you to town and on Sunday take you to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir presentation. It's also close to the Red Iguana which has superb Mexican cuisine. Get there early or prepare to wait. Would have given 10 stars to the campground except that each site's picnic table is almost on top of its neighbor's sewer. Yuk. Even with that, it's one of the best KOAs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best KOA I have ever stayed in. Lots of shade & plenty of amenities. Right in SLC with a Trax light rail stop right across the street! You will not be sorry you used this KOA to camp in. You will lack for nothing......except maybe a river & a forest to wander in. Be sure to drive Big Cottonwood & Little Cottonwood canyon roads!! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Wonderful park for people who like the Salt Lake Area. Close to rapid transport, airport and downtown. We enjoyed our week and a half with lots of exploring. The camp itself was very well laid out, clean and quiet. A little pricy, but worth the price. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We will come back when we pass through this city. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff and helpful. Campground was clean. services were well placed. Interior roads and camp sites were paved and could handle our large motorhome. New fenced doggie yard. Large trees, well trimmed. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here a month while doing genealogy research downtown, so the nightly rate reflects the discount for the month's stay. This is one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at. Sites were paved and level, entire place is well-managed and very convenient to downtown SLC and interstate access. Staff is very attentive and helpful; good convenience store; good handling of mail and packages; two onsite car washes; very good laundry facilities. We would have rated this a 10, but the WiFi was very erratic. That should be corrected soon, as the park has a major WiFi upgrade that is supposed to be completed later this summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very old park with tall trees. The spaces are close. We were able to find an end of the row site that was good. They have a nice pool. There is a wonderful dog park that is about 1/2 mile from the park that you can walk to along the irrigation canal. The drawbacks are that this is in a high crime area. I do not think the park is that secure. We saw bums living along the canal behind the park. Saw them using dope. The pool is supposed to be open only to guests but some of the guests were so offensive that we felt they were probably street people. We also experienced theft of property at the pool. When we complained we were told that they had problems with theft there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Campground was clean and services were well placed. Interior roads and camp sites were paved and could handle large RVs. The only negative was that the WiFi was spotty. We had stayed here before in the winter of 2012 and WiFi was much better at that time. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Extremely nice park with paved roads and sites. Each site is perfectly level with a nice grassy area and mature trees offering lots of shade. The restroom/shower areas are very clean with great water pressure. The park location is excellent with several restaurants within walking distance plus being only 5 or 10 minutes to Temple Square. A free shuttle from the church will pick you up & take you to the square and back to KOA every 30 minutes. There's a super nice shaded path along the river that runs behind the park that's great for walking the dog. There are plenty of street lights throughout the park which is really nice when you have to take out the dog late at night. This is one of the nicest parks we've ever stayed in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the cabin while visiting my sister who was in an RV. Park was very clean, wi-fi was spotty so we did not use it much. Cabin was comfortable. We would stay again. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Clean, neat park with good power and high water pressure. (Be sure to have a water restrictor when you stay here and use it!) Very restful stay and conveniently located to the attractions in the area. Note that the space was tight for our 43 ft. motorhome and tow vehicle so plan accordingly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were pleasantly surprised at this campground. It is well inside the town, but is a sprawling complex with easy access, nice staff, and good facilities. There is a river walk through a gate at the rear of the park, and a very large and very new off-leash area about 1/4 mile down the river walk. The width of the spot we were assigned was the only issue preventing a higher rating number. We would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a big park with a pretty good layout. Sites are level, close together with hook-ups in a good location. While the park was clean overall a lot of dog owners did not pick up after their dogs. This is the dog owners' responsibility, but the park needs to enforce it's pick-up policy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm giving this KOA a 10 even though the roads are a bit tight. If you can't maneuver through it, you shouldn't be driving a big rig. The park was clean and well trimmed, and the desk person was great. The only downside was that the water pressure was very HIGH and I thought my 12 y/o built in regulator could handle it... Wrong...Blew the hose fitting loose. Oh well, I was planning on replacing it anyway and did. They also have a car wash next door and it has the same high water pressure and was great for getting the green stuff off of the toad after a winter in WA. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This rate was based on a weekly rate with our BCAA card. The internet was free courtesy KOA and Tengo. Now I'm normally not a fan of Tengo, but this park had numerous towers through out the park, which made for a fairly decent speed and signal strength. The park borders on a nice river walk park, which was nice to take the dog out for a walk. The Hot tub was operational though we didn't use it. The location is very convenient to the downtown SLC and the temple. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The patio and the game room were nice, but the restrooms were not very clean. I was a bit freaked out about the surrounding area. The security was pretty good though. I won't be going back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
From a big rig perspective this KOA needs some work. It's biggest problem for larger rigs is the trees and shrubs. While these are nice to look at and add a certain lushness to a park they are totally in the way for getting in or out of a site. I had to blackout of my space because I could not turn clear of a tree and big bush. It would have been tight regardless as the interior roads while paved are very narrow. They have a sign warning everyone to use a pressure regulator as the water was over 100 psi. Very noisy as trains go nearby constantly. It is convenient to downtown and I will consider staying again for this reason only. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very urban park, but close to everything. Sites a little tight. There are trees, but we were able to get satellite TV. AT&T and Verizon worked well. 50amps and water pressure were good. Internal roads and sites are asphalt, with picnic tables on grass. Helpful staff. Train whistles are frequent, but not too loud. We would stay here again for the campground's central location and convenience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects an extra long premium site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Conveniently located to city center and major attractions. We did not hear any noise from the airport. They have a free shuttle to temple square. There is a nature trail just outside of the campground, which goes for miles along the river. Great for the dog. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
On the top of the list for KOAs. Large spots, lots of grass, fantastic water pressure, fresh hookups. Large park with adjacent park for long term guests. It's in the center of town, 14 blocks from Temple Square and 3 blocks from fairgrounds. Beautiful riverside walking path just outside of gate. Near airport but plane noise is minimal, there is a train nearby but seems to be true in every town. Rapid transit just outside of park. Clean pool and lovely spa. Large staff with night security/caretaker patrol to assist any way possible. Would gladly return for another visit. Stayed in a 39ft motorhome with tow car. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fantastic staff. The KOA is very large, very green, good TV, lovely pool and spa, great water pressure. Good location for touring. Lovely nature trail behind park along the river, goes on for miles. Lots of grass and large RV sites. It is near the airport, and there is a train somewhere nearby; however, I was not bothered by either. A rapid transit system is just steps away to take you to the center of town. I will indeed return to Salt Lake City KOA We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very urban park, in an industrial area but convenient for city activities. Lots of "long term" campers, but in general we were pleased being here for 4 days. Sites are not on top of each other, TV worked well as did internet. We thought there might be more of a feeling of security as the state fair was going on right behind the campground. They didn't tell us there would be fireworks the first night we were here, and in fact, one camper lost 2 dogs out of fear. Fortunately our dog was inside by then. One night while walking our dog in the early evening, one of the long term campers' dog tried to attack our dog. He was on a leash, but broke off when we walked by. My husband has a tooth mark on his leg trying to protect our dog. The camper was not nice. We reported it to the office just as they were closing. We had to ask that our site be checked more vigorously by the security person during the night as we no longer felt safe. The office took a report but beyond that didn't feel any obligation to us. It's a park that's been around for years, and because of its convenience and the permanent trailer park next door, perhaps doesn't have the same attention to the campers that we're used to. Not sure if we would camp here again. However having said that, there aren't a lot of campgrounds in the city area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a huge RV park, very clean. We stayed only one night. The staff was very good. Overall a nice place to stop. We had a 10% coupon reflected in the price. The location is close to everything in the city. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a beautiful park close to town. They had a pool and hot tub which was nice after traveling all day. If you want to see the attractions in Salt Lake, this is a convenient location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would have given this campground a 10, but I didn’t like that I booked a larger pull-through site on line, and when we got here, we got a short site without much room to put up a small dog pen and two chairs, never mind our 10x10 screen room. Also, while camping here, they ran the sprinkler and all the water went under the slide-out, getting the tracks wet. When ask them to stop watering while we stay here, they did stop; but we were asked if we could water the lawn while here. Not for $42 a night we won’t. Other than that, it was fine. It is a huge campground, very convenient to everything. This is the second time we were here. I would camp here again, but I would request a different site the next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good location for area attractions, although road construction makes for challenging entry and exit from park. Paved roads and RV sites. My only complaint is the location of large evergreen trees near the front of pull-through sites that make it very difficult to leave the site without getting into tree branches. Friendly and helpful staff. Wi-Fi worked fine. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an older but well kept park with mature shade trees all over the park. There is an older section with full timers in back in sites that does have some bumpy roads, but we stayed in the pull throughs and had a great site and wonderful shade. Wi-fi and cable were good. Free shuttle every half hour to Temple Square eliminates parking fees in downtown Salt Lake. Park is a little tricky to get into because of construction, but I got specific directions from staff, who were very helpful. Pool was not always as clean as I would have liked, but in all fairness there were gusty winds blowing trash into it daily, so I don't think it was the park's fault. We definitely would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My only issue here was a bright light coming through the bedroom shades. So I draped a towel over the window to block it, no problem. Relatively easy to return to I-80. A train could be heard in the distance if you were outside. But we never heard it inside. I've been surprised at the number of full-timers permanently set-up at some parks. This place was well-maintained, very pleasant place for a few days touring. Don't miss the copper mine. Pretty amazing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second stay at this park and it is a nicely kept city park. The staff is helpful and friendly and it is located near the things that folks come to Salt Lake City to see. The sites are a bit narrow but we made it work. Currently North Temple is undergoing construction so getting in and out of the park is tricky but that will not last forever. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with paved roads/sites. Appreciate the shade trees and although the sites are close together, the angle is good and one doesn't gaze directly into the ones next door. Do NOT appreciate, at this or any other RV park, the many "speed bumps." No RV-owner could EVER think about installing them, as no matter how slowly you drive, everything in cabinets is moved around. Just post speeds and make a big deal of it when rigs check in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I loved this campground as soon as we drove in. Nicely laid out with grass and shade trees. Nice clubhouse and appropriately sized pool. A cash-operated RV and car wash on site. Friendly, efficient staff. Free shuttle to Temple Square (but you must be visiting the Square, which makes sense, because the shuttle is run by the Church). We took it all 3 days because there is so much to see on the Square and the driver and accompanist provide lots of friendly information, which is interesting. (We also saw a parking lot that takes RVs on the corner of North Temple and 200 West, a few blocks from downtown for $3 a day if you prefer to drive, which is quite easy in Salt Lake City.). Next to Temple Square is City Creek Mall, which is very nice. This park is a very convenient base for visiting the city, and we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
I was apprehensive about staying here because it is right in the city and I thought it would be loud. But oddly enough, it's one of the quietest places we've stayed. It is very close to everything you want to see, the staff is friendly, the laundry is large, clean and reasonably priced. They have a shuttle that will take you right downtown. We really enjoyed our time here and would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Price reflects internet special - stay one night, second night half price for a pull through site. What we liked: Shaded pull through reasonably priced with the special, free shuttle service to Temple Square (which is actually a service of the Mormon Church). Once construction is finished the park will be right on the light rail line, weekend all-you-can-eat pancake breakfasts for $3. What we disliked: Wi-Fi was difficult to connect/maintain, holes in asphalt, water hoses sprinkling continually on our site, trees planted too close to site exit making right turn difficult for big rigs, inconvenient dog walk in area filled with fox tails, missed turn due to construction and had to make our way through the trailer park and turn around at the actual park entrance when we found it. We will most likely stay elsewhere next visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground with large pull through sites. Nice trail along the river to walk our two dogs. Spent three days in Salt Lake City and had a great time. Will stay here next time we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place is depressing. We only stayed here because it was close to the airport. Sites are asphalt and have lots of holes from jacks. Pricey for what it is. No view of anything and you have to walk your dogs out the back of the park on a trail in order to not intrude on people's campsites (though that's not a rule). Laundry was clean but pricey. We would not stay here again since a new park opened in North Salt Lake only 6 miles north. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate reflects the KOA discount. This park has a great location for visiting the sites around Salt lake. It also has a free shuttle to temple Square and friendly staff. Our site is a pull through with nice shade. It's a larger park with two sections. One with permanent residents. A car/RV wash is located at the entrance. One dollar for 2 minutes and 20 seconds, so you must work fast. The park has activities planned for most nights, and a small pool and laundry facilities which we didn't use, so I don't know the cost or condition. We Didn't use the showers either. The biggest negative with this park has to do with the major construction work going on at the entrance making it difficult to find and difficult to get into local businesses along the main artery to downtown. You are warned to use a pressure reducer for your water line as the pressure is 125 without it. The Wi-Fi is good and cable has 28 stations. Because of the location we would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a clean, well kept park, convenient to the city. The LDS shuttle was very convenient, but there was much confusion by the front desk as to the schedule of it. Although at check-in they mentioned the AAA discount, they forgot to give it to me. Verizon and AT&T cell and data worked well, which was good, because the Wi-Fi at the park was so pathetic, I used my hot spot. When I mentioned the Wi-Fi to the front desk, she mentioned how much they had spent on infastructure and that people hog bandwith by streaming movies. Whatever the reason, I wasn't happy about it. The only other complaint was the hot tub. It was overrun with tons of little kids every time I wanted to use it. I would look at other options next time we are in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here as an overnight stay on our way home. This is a well-managed campground that was clean and easy to navigate. A little pricey, but we were happy with the site: which was paved and totally level. Lots of grass and trees plus all of the good campground amenities such as a pool. The campground store was a little pricey, but it was well stocked. Some areas look tight but they had other areas that were large and open for big rigs. Typical KOA quality except for one thing. Wi-Fi was the most frustrating I have ever seen. It’s a TengoInternet which has a poor reputation. When I mentioned this to the staff at registration (they were very friendly) they gave me an 800 number to call. They had 6 connections throughout the park, but none could hold a signal. You get on and within 5 minutes it disconnected. After two hours of this I finally called the 800 number but was told something is wrong with MY laptop. Oh well. New Dell laptop but doubt it has a problem. We would have given them a higher rating but feel a 5 is in order as the Wi-Fi is beyond terrible. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed it here. We received a happy welcome. Our site was pleasantly shaded. We found it quiet and peaceful. There was a leafy walk out the back. Free transport could be arranged to and from Temple Square courtesy of the LDS, which was a very nice touch. Only downside was the extensive road works that were going on outside the camp, which resulted in different road diversions being in place on the two nights we caught cabs back from SLC. It was a bit of a giggle ($5 worth probably) going round extra sides of a square to find the way in. We'd definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with a lot of trees, asphalt streets and gravel fairly level sites. Wi-Fi was free and pretty good. Why the very low rating you ask? Part of your experience in a park is the front office people. While nice, I found our checkin personnel incompetent. We had asked for a satellite friendly site and when we get to our site there is a huge tree and a utility pole right next to the site at the rear of the site where our dish is on the roof. All the sites had trees at the rear of the site so we moved to a site with a much smaller tree and also a utility pole. Being so close meant that even with the tree just starting to bud there was too much interference so the dish could not lock onto a satellite. The trees were all over and we could not even get a signal on our portable automatic that we moved towards the front of the site. When we call a place and are told, no problem with the satellite, we expect no problems. When you pay KOA rates you expect above average everything: we just did not get it here. Utility hookups are a little awkward as I don't like to have the water hose under or over the sewer hose. Needed two sections of our sewer hose due to the layout. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice park, clean restrooms and showers, very helpful and friendly staff. Great location. They have a free shuttle offered by the LDS Church to go to Temple Square. The construction around the entry is miserable but what can you do? Easy to find from I-80. I hope to come back again to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As usual, this park bent over backwards to accommodate our rig which is 65' in length with an extra car. We had 80' site with patio and the whole nine yards. Real nice. The tour vans were out in force. Many shuttles to the Mormon Temple for research. North Temple street is pretty well torn up with new train tracks going in so pay attention to the directions given. Office staff was up to date on all info. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Salt Lake City KOA Friendly and helpful staff. At check-in we were advised of 110# water pressure and offered a loaner pressure reducer. The welcome pack included a two page single spaced directory of stores, services, and attractions with marvelous turn by turn directions; the best we have ever seen. We were very pleased with services of a nearby IHC InstaCare Medical Clinic. Good laundry. Paved level pads and wide paved streets make for easy parking. Grass and mature trees between larger than average sites. A table at each site. A good place; we would come here again. Free shuttle buses to Temple Square run from the RV Park. Good single stream recycling program; cans, cardboard, newsprint, milk jugs, paper. No glass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and very convenient location to downtown Salt Lake. I was visiting the Family Research Center, and the LDS Church provided shuttle service free of charge. This is located in the city, without a security fence. I didn't have any problems but would have felt more secure with a fence. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the best KOA parks we've ever seen. Only complaint is they need to reduce their water pressure, which was 120psi. Great trail for walking your dog. We stayed here 9 days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great CG if you plan on sightseeing in Temple Square or anywhere else in downtown SLC. The roads and sites are paved and were long enough for our MH and our toad. Some of the roads were a bit on the narrow side, but it was easy to make the necessary turns. There are lots of trees, but we were able to get satellite reception; on some sites this will be difficult. There is free cable TV usable Tengonet Wi-Fi. What is nice is that the Wi-Fi code is valid for up to a month instead of having to be changed each day. The staff at the office were very pleasant and organized when we checked in an provided us with one of the best information packages we have received anywhere. The road in front of the CG is torn up by construction and will be for the next year or more due to a new light-rail line being built. However, it is passable in a MH, just dusty and slower than normal. All in all, this is one of the best KOA's we've been at and a very good CG regardless of "brand." We camped here in a Motorhome.
We chose this campground because we had blasted through SLC several times but never stopped to visit. There is a free LDS shuttle that will take you to Temple Square and back for free. Check-in staff were polite and efficient. The site was level and the campground is shady. There's a state park out back to walk the dogs. We heard the occasional train and plane during the night but generally quiet. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of our favorite parks. Lots of shade, grass and walking opportunities, especially along the river. Showers are well maintained. One of the things that is exceptional about this park, is that shuttle service is provided to the Mormon Tabernacle to hear the choir and orchestra rehearse on Sunday morning and then record a live performance of "Music and The Spoken Word." If you love sacred and classical music, you should not miss this opportunity to hear top shelf musicians and singers perform. The most surprising, no one asks for a donation: in fact, the shuttle drivers even refuse tips. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Level, paved and clean sites. Restrooms seem overburdened-this is a very large and busy CG. Staff very helpful and friendly. Lots of train horns but we like trains. Close to airport and downtown. Wi-Fi works well, but cable TV is pitiful. Lots of construction on entry and egress, but negotiable. We have stayed here twice in the last two weeks for a total of 5 nights. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice KOA. Lots of grass, paved parking, pool and everything was is in good working order. Some of the sites were not level, however, so be ready to level you rig. Highly recommend this KOA. Staff very friendly, and helpful. Located right next door to the State Fairgrounds. If you are there in September you might want to attend the fair. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another overpriced park that i had to use but for only one night. I could very easy give this place a one because of my disgust for there pricing but once you get past that the park has some pluses its just overpriced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great campground, and very convenient to downtown. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is a courtesy shuttle to Temple Square. Only minor beef was their internet was a little pokey and they had North Temple under construction. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the 3rd year in the last 4 years we have stayed here in Aug/Sept for three weeks each time. We return because this is one of the best KOA's we have ever visited in almost 35 years of camping at KOA. The grounds are well kept, the facilities clean, the pool area is well maintained and the store is well stocked. But, the best reason for coming here is the staff from the front desk to maintenance staff to those who offer you a ride in a golf cart to your sight or to the office. They are willing to try and answer any question you might have whether it is where the local market is located, a movie theater or a sports bar, which bus to take, how to find local TV info, etc. They are friendly and considerate of everybody. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a city RV park that provides the services as advertised. The shuttle to Temple Square was very handy. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only complaint with this park was the Internet Service (Tengo). We were here 3 nights the first 2 days we had no Internet. I complained to Tengo at least 10 times with no results. The park attendants were helpful but not IT service people. The 3rd day at the site the Internet performed flawlessly. Same computer that worked at all other access points in the park. My real complaint is with Tengo you pay for this service one way or another and they pretty much tell you its your problem. Deal with it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A typical KOA that is geared for kids, many kids. The office staff was very friendly and had lots of recommendations about the area. This is a very large property with many long term, perhaps full time residents. The gravel pull through was long enough for our 37 footer and a gravel spot to the side for our tow. The pool and hot tub were refreshing. The laundry room was very clean. The overall rating was a 6 but I gave them an extra point because they recycle. Point of interest: If you can be in Salt Lake City on Thursday night, the Moran Tabernacle Choir holds their rehearsal at 8 PM and you can sit in for free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only stayed one night on our way to Elko, but were very pleased with this KOA. It is very clean and neat, large pull through sites, all I could see were shaded and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this park and would stay again. We did make use of the shuttle to the Temple Square and this was a very good way to see that area of SLC. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had trouble with the Wi-Fi which was TengoNet. We had to call several times over 2 days but the problem was resolved. The free shuttle to the Mormon Temple was great since parking is not easy to find in the area. There is a major construction going on but not impossible to negotiate. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would camp there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Internet in and out. Cable somewhat snowy. Spaces adequately sized and easily accessed. Park is well laid out and convenient to downtown area. Trains blow horn once or twice each night. Road construction somewhat bothersome but workable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an enormous campground near I-80, I-15, the Salt Lake City Airport and the fairgrounds. It is about 2 miles from Temple Square. Even though it is an urban campground there are lots of trees, flowers and grassy sites. This KOA has a pool and small hot tub in addition to a recreation room and a nice playground. The camp store is well supplied with food, snacks, drinks and basic camping items. There are two restroom/shower/laundry buildings, one up front near the pool and office and the other towards the back of the campground. Restrooms are accessed with a door code. A TV/game room is located near the office and there is an exercise trail through the grounds and access to a nature trail just outside. The sites are large, many are pull through and can accommodate very large rigs. They are nicely spaced with table and fire ring, free modem and PC, free WIFI and cable TV. A large RV/car wash and a Mexican restaurant are also on site. The entire place is kept immaculately clean by staff who can be seen grooming the place. We stayed at this KOA in a Class C motorhome but there are a few cabins and many tent sites. A group tent site has a sink for dish washing. A very nice feature was the free shuttle service to and from Temple Square offered by volunteers from the LDS Church every half hour from 9 a.m. One may just use the shuttle to get to and from downtown Salt Lake City or if desired a free tour of Temple Square can be arranged. We took the tour and were impressed by the articulate, friendly young guides who shared information and answered questions without proselytizing. The tour can be as brief as 20 minutes or as long as an hour depending on your preferences and you are free to walk around on your own. We were also given a coupon for 10% off at several restaurants around the Square. We would definitely recommend this KOA to tenters, RV'ers or those wishing to stay in the cabins. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the virtual epitome of perfect campground planning. What can I say. It has everything we can think of, including friendly, helpful management and employees. The grounds are clean and well laid out. We felt safe even though we were practically in down-town Salt Lake. The ONLY negative (temporary) is that there is major road construction outside the gate on West Temple making Interstate access difficult. We enjoyed touring the city and will certainly stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this facility many times. It is an older park, but well maintained and with lots of grass and big trees. I would have given them a 10 but the construction around the area makes it difficult to manuever. I also had several uncomfortable encounters with a camp host who actually chided me not not attending an LDS Event, after politely telling her we were of another faith. I have not encountered this in SLC in the past 20 years and would suggest KOA stick to doing what it does so well and not evangelize. We'll stay at another park when we return in the fall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Front of the campground is very off-putting, but once you get inside the campground, it is well maintained with plenty of trees. There is a lot of construction on the road the campground is on. Very close to downtown Salt Lake City and is the perfect place to camp if you are planning on site seeing. Staff was very helpful and pleasant. The only complaint about this campground is the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi does not work and the "free computer" that you can use in the office does not work either. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the best campground we have stayed at in a long time. Level sites and lots of trees. Decent space between campers. Everything has been updated. The staff was excellent. We will stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lots of road construction getting to the park. The friendly and helpful staff will tell you how to avoid it when you leave. Well maintained with lots of trees and greenery. Close to downtown Salt Lake City and is the place to camp if you are planning on site seeing. Level sites and decent space between campers. Everything has been updated. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very comfortable, clean, and convenient to many incredible tourist destinations. All the utilities worked as advertised. Staff was very helpful and professional. Dog walk was along the river, and a great off-leash public dog park a short walk away. With all the things to do in SLC, we were very happy. We came for three days, and ended up staying 3 weeks. Wonderful city, wonderful KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wish someone had written a more accurate representation of this KOA as I never would have stayed here. The only redeeming quality is its proximity to the Temple and the shuttle to take you to the sites. I can overlook the road work as it looks as it will improve the area. What I can't overlook is how close the trains are to the park. Both nights we stayed here, we heard train whistles at various times in the night (12:00AM, 2:30AM, etc.) As the on-site store was unstocked, I asked the staff if they knew of a market close by to purchase groceries, and they gave me a sheet of paper with directions. I would not stay here again, but if being close to downtown is important to you, the convenience could outweigh the negatives. Not for me, though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is highly recommended especially if you plan to visit downtown Salt Lake City (SLC). You can get free shuttle to downtown right from the campground. The campground also provides tours. They pick you up and drop you off at the campground. This campground has it all. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. You couldn’t ask for better service. Our pull through site was long enough to fit our 38 foot fifth-wheel and truck. There are trees, a picnic table, and a grassy area on every site. There is quite a lot of room between sites. All sites and roads are paved. Cable and satellite reception were great. Our Verizon cell phone and wireless internet worked fine. Campground has RV service on site. Bathrooms and showers are spotless. Pool, hot tub, and laundry were also very clean. The campground offers movies and entertainment on the weekend. There is a Wal-Mart close by and many restaurants. In addition to visiting SLC we visited Antelope Island State Park during our stay. I highly recommend this park. You will not be disappointed. Make reservations in advance because they sell out early. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is a good option for folks who want to visit downtown Salt Lake. A shuttle runs to the Temple area and right now light rail is being constructed right across the street. Construction makes travel there a bit tricky at present. Sites are laid out in an interesting pattern, not bad, just different. There are lots of trees. Wi-Fi is Tengo which I dislike, but it is available and free. Dog area is too far away so our dogs ended up going at our site. More dedicated dog area and/or a park would improve my rating. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is typical of a KOA park for amenities. But this was one of the nicer KOA's we have stayed in. The park was clean, the sites are good size, and the pads are paved. No patios at the sites though. There is road construction in front of the park, but navigating through it was no problem. All of the trees in the park have been trimmed up so travel through the park roads was easy. There is a section for permanent residents, but it is sectioned off from the daily sites. A short walk next to a stream out of the back gate of the park leads to a huge dog park. Even though there is water not far from the park, bugs were never an issue. I will come back to the area to explore Salt Lake City further, and I will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park for visiting Salt Lake City. Caution: there is heavy road construction in front of the park and part of the intersection that you use to get to Highway 80 is closed. Call the park for the status on the construction before you get there. There is a shuttle bus sponsored by the Mormon Church that picks you up and takes you down to Temple Square and back. Convenient to the tourist spots. Everything is clean and well taken care of. Lovely flowers and grass everywhere. Huge park...it is a hefty walk from the back of the park up to the pool and laundry room. Cable was fuzzy, but they said they are working on it. Wi-Fi was so-so; you get kicked off a lot but it's fine when it's working. Laundry was clean but maybe a little small for the size of the park. Pool and hot tub were sparkling clean. Media room with book swap. Nice river walk out a back gate; good for dogs. Park was very quiet at night. We definitely would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our stay here. It has a perfect location for visiting Salt Lake City and is right on the Jordan River Parkway, a paved biking and running trail. They have big pull-through sites that can accommodate huge rigs, with full hookups. The hookups were in odd places, though, so we had to pull our rig to the middle to reach the sewer, and then our truck barely fit in the site, but it wasn't really a problem. The sites are well-kept, with green grass between each site that they keep nicely-groomed. The price, while not cheap, seemed fair for a campground in a city. They have a nice pool and laundry facility. The park is absolutely enormous, with row after after row of RVs, so you are not going here for serenity, but we didn't find it noisy at all. The one downside is that the park is connected with a VIP Permanent Resident park, so a lot of the people are living here full-time, and there are some in mobile homes, rather than RVs. This wasn't a problem, though, and everyone we met seemed friendly. We planned to stay 3 nights and wound up staying five. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Paved road and sites. Lots of vegetation. Big Rig friendly but Be Careful of the trees. Very busy: we arrived prior to 5 pm and there were limited sites available. Good location for visiting Salt Lake. Be aware major road construction on Temple and Redwood for June 2011. We had to detour to enter and exit KOA entry We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice KOA campground on the west side of downtown Salt Lake City. Sites are close together, but the campground is very convenient to the downtown area and has easy access from the Interstate highways. Many sites have lots of shade. Cable TV is virtually useless as it is so snowy you can't really see a usable picture, but you can pick up local channels just fine with your crank up antenna. The big plus for this park is its location close to downtown and the highways. There is also a free shuttle service from the park to Temple Square downtown, which is a terrific deal for sight seeing. The rate shown reflects the weekly rate of pay for 6 nights and get the 7th night free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This KOA had flat clean slab sites with grass and a picnic bench. The store was well equipped and had the right fuse we needed. The management gave us directions and invited us to the numerous activities the camp had to offer. There was a river walking trial and BBQ. Many families were here but the park was large and quiet where we were. I wish we could have stayed longer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A wonderful location if you want to visit Temple Square. The LDS church provides a free pick up and return van. Our site was level, and long enough so we did not have to unhitch. Grass, Grass and wonderful trees. Good to excellent space between units. Long term residents where also neat - it was big propane pig that gave them away as you drove to your site. They have 12 ft tall wash bays to wash you RV and truck! Yes, you can come in off the street and do your thing! The only item that prevented them from a 10 was the poor TV cable they provided - snowy in the lower channels - I assume they have telephone cable from their telephone service. Any time we are traveling through Utah we will stay here- we enjoyed the tranquility at the KOA and at Temple Square. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Finally! A nicely maintained KOA! Friendly staff! Too many trees for using our satellite system, and their WiFi didn't work really well sometimes. One would think it would be noisy in the middle of the city, but it wasn't bad. There is a train nearby and the KOA is under the flight pattern for SLC airport. Didn't bother us, though. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great RV park. Upon check-in you are given a list of grocery stores, etc., with directions. The spaces are very clean and there is ample room for awnings. There is a gate that takes you out of the rv park to a great city park and a wonderful dog run. Definitely worth staying there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this park. Visually appealing, and everything worked well. There is a fun trail that runs along the river, a great place to walk the dog. I would happily stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has it all, including a great location near downtown SLC and easy freeway access. Sites are a decent size and well maintained. Lots of trees through out the property and it is adjacent to a creekside path that runs along the back. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great price at $42 (no discounts) for the amenities and location. We originally reserved one night and end up saying for two. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place was our first KOA experience, and we were thrilled with the state of the park, as well as the management. Coming from California where people don't make eye contact, we were overwhelmed by the friendliness of the staff. They went above and beyond to make our stay a good one. We stayed for three nights during a monsoon, so we spent a lot of time indoors. The Internet was fast, the cable TV was good, and the bathrooms were in immaculate shape. The store was well stocked, and there's a big laundromat on one end of the property with a couple dozen industrial-sized washers and dryers. There's also a free shuttle service to Temple Square, which we didn't use, but which would come in handy if you didn't want to detach your rig. There was a ton of construction going on right here on Temple Street, where the campgrounds are located, but when it's all done, the KOA will be a straight shot to downtown (North Temple goes all the way to Temple Square). It takes 10 to 15 minutes. The only downside to this park is the proximity to the rail line. Trains were blowing their whistles all night, and it woke my husband and me up at times. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Highly priced, but accept most discount cards, so was a great place to be for a couple days. Well maintained facilities in every way! Don't like the price, but tolerate it because it's so close to every thing you'd want to do in this town! Site sizes are not measured properly. We are just under 60' if stay hooked up. The first site assigned was supposed to be 62', but was more like 55'. We moved to a (truly) 65' site after we discovered we could not get satellite reception (due to tree obstruction). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great KOA close to downtown. We loved the pull thru sites, well tended grounds, and the shuttle to temple square. However it was a bit noisy in our site. Not sure if you can hear it towards the back. Overall a wonderful park and I would highly recommend it. Rate is approximate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I rate three things each on 1-3 scale: Cleanliness, facilities, general ambiance with a bonus point or not for extraordinary reasons. This place gets 3/3, 3/3, 3/3 and the 1 for a total of 10/10. Clean, friendly, well kept, big easy entry sites all paved, flowers, grass and great staff. Its a mile from downtown and Temple Square. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great KOA. Lots of things to do. Liked the 80' RV sites. We took the shuttle to Temple Square. Really nice time with lots of wonderful staff members to help us with directions or hook up problems. Glad we chose KOA and used our value card here. Will return for another vacation. Keep up the good work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would say that this park was more of a 7, but the location earned it an 8. We enjoyed the Good Sam discount, even for a weekly rate (it kept the price in line with the amenities). Also, we are giving them the benefit of the doubt: we had problems with the Wi-Fi (and Tengo's customer service was poor), the cable TV, and the water. The cable and water were due to switching companies and maintenance, so I do not think they are normal occurrences; however, the Wi-Fi issue seemed common (other guests complained that it "came and went") and our experience with Tengo is that there are normally problems. We enjoyed the shuttle to Temple Square, and that the KOA is on a bus route for those times after the shuttle is not running or to go to other locations. The laundry and restrooms/showers could use work (for example, in one shower stall all of the hooks had been pulled off the wall). The laundry is at the front of the park, so while a good size facility is a bit inconvenient (the large dryers that start with a quarter are great, though). We did see some high-speed traffic from the permanent folks, but not much. Most of the long-term RVs seemed in good shape, there was one in the short-term area that seemed to have more caution tape and tarp than fiberglass. The part of town was not the best, but we felt comfortable here. If you stay here, Temple Square is a must see (the most popular tourist destination in SLC) and the Choir rehearsal is excellent. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a typical KOA. Very nice park and close to everything. Most sites are pull thru side by side, have 30/50 amps with no dips in power, water, sewer, table, plus close to level. Sites are marked on way to pull in and with large number on site pads. Site had a place to park the tow. Roads and sites are good asphalt. The Wi-Fi worked very well and speed was good most of the time. Number of sites are back in. Playground equipment the kids. Staff was nice at check in. Some road noise from street in front but not to bad. Verizon cell and air card work well. You do have long term people in back, sites were clean and neat. Cable TV had 25 channels. Rate was on Good Sam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is very packed, so be sure to make reservations. I loved the shuttle into Temple Square and the downtown area. Super friendly, helpful staff. It is not a traditional "camping" experience, more like a mobile home park, but if you want to see Salt Lake City, this is a safe home base. Yes, there's long term people on the outer edges of the park, but they are mostly summer visitors in nice coaches & trailers. With the number of employees all over the park cleaning, trimming and helping, we didn't feel a threat at all. We spent the extra money for a patio, swing and table. It was nice and gave us a little extra space. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The RV park is close to a State Fairground which wasn't a problem. There are quite a few residents on site. Pitches are close to each other but good for parking a tow vehicle. Park has a swimming pool and spa, clean restrooms good Wi-Fi and cable TV. They run a shuttle bus to Temple Square every hour. Staff very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second stay at this park and we really like it. It is close to downtown, all pads are concrete, level, the staff are very nice, and accommodating. However, we did use an RV service to find an electrical short in our motorhome which turned out to be a simple loose connection. This Mobile RV Service took 4 hours to find the problem and charged us $400. We felt like we had been taken to the cleaners. So although the KOA is very very good, do not use Mobile RV Service for anything. This 1-man shop is not that knowledgeable, otherwise, it would not have taken him 4 hours to fix a simple problem. We would definitely stay here again and definitely would not use this man ever again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well kept RV park with narrow paved roads and narrow paved sites. Best sites for large rigs are in the back half of the park, away from road noise up front. Back of park is attractive with grass and trees. Length of site was barely long enough for our 40' rig with toad attached. Electric and water worked well. Did not use sewer because would have required an extension on our 20' hose. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are several of us that stay in our RV's because work has brought us here. Nice overall park, but for monthly stays, it is different. Rules are not the same for everyone. They are not pet friendly. They charge you more for the pet spaces than renting a small house or apartment: $715.00 for medium to big dogs. They say for the other pet spots, your pet has to be under 30lbs, or if you have more than one, the combined weight not to exceed 30lbs. The manager is also not very nice. She has no people skills, always very sharp and nasty, several have complained. The summers at the pool are a joke. There is no supervision. Outsiders with lots of kids come in, they even let kids (as little as 3 months old) in the hot tub. Several of us leaving to another park that welcomes medium dogs at a lot better rate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A large park but well run. We had a very nice pull thru at back area of park with some shade trees. There was train noise but didn't keep us awake. Close to city center and freeway but no traffic noise. A clean and tidy park. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I am writing to review this RV park because it has been unfairly reviewed by some I see, these people must have the wrong campground or something. We booked 4 nights with them, then thought later we forgot to read the reviews, so I did, they scared us so we tried to cancel. But we talked to the girl at the desk and she assured us they were safe and a nice place to stay. She was so nice we decided to go and see for ourselves. This RV park is beautiful, just a short walk to town and had beautiful tree lined streets, grassy sites, friendly staff and was very clean. They have a great pet walk behind the park right on the river, we loved it!. Nothing to be scared of here! The only one thing I didn't like is the middle rows of sites are all "buddy" sites, my husband and I dislike buddy sites unless you are camping with people you know. We felt like every night we had to say hello to our fellow camper next to us as their picnic table and ours were on the same side, I would have liked more privacy. I think these sites should be cheaper by a little bit than the extra large sites on the left side that are beautiful and you don't have to picnic with anyone else. BUT having said that they were more than willing to move us over to another site without that issue, we didn't move as we are almost at the end of our stay but they were so nice about it, there was a Spanish man who was so nice, and the girls young and a little older were so nice too! We would stay here again in a minute and we are picky type, thanks KOA for the great stay From Canada. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We've stayed at this KOA several times and consider it to be one of the best in the system. It is an extremely busy park, but well laid out and well run. There are great walking trails, the staff are friendly and helpful, there are shade trees and grass at most sites, and it is conveniently located to Temple Square and Interstate access. Yes, it's in the middle of an aging part of town and you can hear the trains, but the good far outweighs the bad. We've tried Pony Express, but keep coming back to KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great place to stay while vacationing in the Salt Lake City Area. The staff was knowledgeable and very customer oriented. The park itself is well shaded with many trees. The shower house / restrooms were kept immaculate! Extra amenities included an all you can eat pancake breakfast for $2.50, and a free shuttle down to Temple Square. I would return here in a minute. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in during our 4 years of RVing. Friendly staff, free movies some nights. Free shuttle to Temple Square. Neat and clean. Plenty of room in the pull through for rig and tow. Did not use pool or bath. We did purchase good barbeque at poolside. Breakfast also available for purchase. Would not hesitate to return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had been to this campground 5 years ago and were hesitant to return after reading previous reviews. It is still, in our opinion, a great KOA, convenient to downtown and easy to get in and out of from the freeway. Workers were always out pruning, weeding, and cleaning. As far as long-term units, they were off behind the hedge in another section. Dog walk in the area behind the campground next to the river is awesome. Don't miss the daily noontime organ recitals in the Tabernacle or just walk around Temple Square. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our space was a pull through, asphalt site with grass and a tree on each side. The asphalt was so uneven; it took two boards to level my 30 foot trailer side to side. There was a gravel parking spot in each site since the spots were not long enough to accommodate my trailer and truck. The pool and bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. I had trouble logging on to the internet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I realized that I had not been given my KOA discount when I checked in. I went back to the office and was rapidly taken care of and the problem was corrected. The staff was also very friendly and provided maps and suggestions for what to see in and around Salt Lake City. For the price, $50.00, I felt the sites should have been level, and the inter-net should work well. I liked the campground and had no concerns about the neighborhood. The staff wanted our stay to be a pleasant one. I would return if passing through Salt Lake City since the KOA is close and convenient to most of the local attractions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is a large campground inside Salt Lake. There is a free Shuttle to Temple Square. There are several different informational sheets given at check-in for things in area. It features clean, well kept sites. We did not feel it was on safest side of town but for an in town campground it met our expectations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really nice KOA in a run down part of Salt Lake City. The pool is one of the nicest/biggest/cleanest pools we have ever used, and along with the excellent hot tub, we were happy after a long day of driving. Our site was in a row of very nice sites with lots of shade, and the grass had been recently mowed. Check-in was stress free, and they had a nice packet with local activities and a free shuttle to the Mormon Temple Square. We did see some long term residents but the sites were well maintained with no skirting allowed. Nice fence surrounded the park, and in no way did we feel unsafe as there were very few empty sites in this very large park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were a bit wary after reading previous comments but were pleasantly surprised - very convenient and visitor-friendly campground. Staff was friendly and helpful, and materials handed out were very useful, especially when we needed to find a pharmacy on short notice. Our site was not near the section of permanent sites, but we found the campground to be clean and quiet. Shuttle and tours leave from the campground that are great for sightseers. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Seriously overpriced KOA - they all are, of course. We only came here because there's a free shuttle downtown to the Square, and we also wanted the extensive cable TV for one day (no other area park has that). Unappealing, unsecured outside area but park has nice grass and shade trees, though many paved sites are narrow and short. Sewer hookup was next to the cable box and unusable. Laundry room and showers cramped but clean. Residential area had cars zipping from there thru the park. If you must stay here more than a night, pray for a good, safe site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been full timing for over a year now and this park is so far the highest priced and the worst park we have stayed at! There are pit bulls and other types of large dogs in the park. The path to the bike trail is littered with dog excrement and no one cleans up after their dogs. There are many permanent residents who pay little attention to park speed limits etc. A local clerk in a grocery store nearby said this whole area has drug and vagrant problems. Even the park advises locking everything up at night. We will never stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This KOA is large and very centrally located to downtown SLC. They had a shuttle to Temple Square, which we appreciated. The spaces are close together but we were able to maneuver in and out without much difficulty. Everything is clean, but seems a little worn down. We would return again, since it is so close to the center of town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Good size sites with easy hookups. Has WiFi, cable TV and very accessible to the city. Lots of staff available. There was a full time park adjacent. Train horns in the late evenings and early mornings but the location is within minutes of Temple Square. We walked to a restaurant down the street. This park is next to the Utah State Fairgrounds. We didn't realize it until the last day that there was a trail on the north side of the park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Oh wow. This park is one of a kind. The positives are near down town, next to bike trail, good family pool, most amazing Mexican food in the US right up the street. The Red Iguana is a must stop. Negatives; Over priced !!!! Huge park w/ LOTS of full timers, awful ghetto bar in front of park, smells of sewer (3x instance of sewer regurgitating), lots of perv old men living in their cars, & all around just icky place to be. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The worst KOA I have experienced. The young clerk was congenial but very deceptive. She said that I needed a pressure regulator, but rented me an anti-siphon valve calling it a pressure regulator. There was lots of traffic noise from full timers. It is a dingy place, and gives KOA a bad name. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient location for downtown Salt Lake City. Sites were level and clean. Our only concern was that a large area of this park was given over to full-time residents, and the units in that area were in pretty poor repair, and we had some security concerns. Although we didn't have any difficulties. We would not stay here in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Centrally located for touring Salt Lake City and the outlying areas. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the RV sites clean and the facility is green (double entrendre for the grass and the recycling program). Pleasant walk along the Jordan river adjacent to the KOA, and dog friendly. Clean up facilities were in excellent shape: both the showers and laundry room. A car wash sized to include RVs in adjacent to the site. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Its a huge CG in town, and we were surprised at how quiet it was. You could hear the train at night, that was it. Clean bathrooms and laundry. It is very central for everything, Wal-Mart, restaurants, the temple, tabernacle etc. We tried to find a restaurant open on a Sunday night, not easy. but after driving around for a long time we found a gem. Coachmans on South State Street, we had a 4 course meal $20 for 2 people. Great service and staff, give it a try. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here before and once again I agree with most of the positive comments about the park. While I can understand how things like site size and urban noise can cause some folks to downgrade a park, I would still like to know why some reviewers denigrate the area where the park is located? See my 08/07 review. I did have a Wi-Fi problem that was probably due to customer usage since the park was quite full. This is a very good park in a convenient location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice park, sites are a little tight. I just don't like KOA's. This park excepts Good Sam. It is convenient in Salt Lake City for Tabernacle tours. Twenty-nine would be a good price. I wish they had skipped the emails asking if I enjoyed my stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has a lot to offer: hot tub, pool, playground, rec-room, and store. Level pull-through sites on asphalt, with picnic table and grass. Wi-Fi worked great, has cable TV and friendly staff. Restrooms were clean, with three individual locking stalls. We went to Temple Square, Clark Planetarium, and the huge copper mine. Only complaint, which is out of their control, is the noise: several trains, few airplanes, and distant freeway vehicles. We will stay here again when we come through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This used to be the only RV Park close to Salt Lake City. As a result they could get away with charging $40.00 a night. Too late I learned that a new RV Park has opened in North SLC: 6 miles away. In any event, this park is OK, but I was less than impressed with the staff when I checked in. When I made my reservation 2 weeks ago, I specifically asked for a site that was not under trees. Guess what, they put me under the two biggest trees in the park. When I went back to the office to change sites they told me it was too hard for them to keep track of which sites have trees. I don't think I'll be staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is in the city on a heavily congested road. The check-in building in located in the front and the campgrounds are behind it, so it seems somewhat secluded from the hustle and bustle. Very nice pool and picnic area. Very well maintained and clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is your typical KOA. It was not in a very good part of town, though there was easy access to downtown Salt Lake City. It was crowded with narrow streets and close sites. In addition to navigating to our site, it was difficult getting in and out of our campsite with the many trees and the location of newly planted trees and shrubs. The campground appeared old with many permanent/seasonal residents, and your typical older KOA that has done nothing in years to keep up with the size of newer RV units. The hookups were at the front of the site making it very difficult for us to connect electricity. The woman that showed us to our site was very uncooperative and rude, when we mentioned the hookup problem. We would not recommend this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shore Services: 50amp, Sewer good, Water 50@ psi - AT&T Cell Phone: Good - Sprint Air Card: Good with Freedom Antenna - Verizon Air Card: Good with Freedom Antenna - Cable: Good - Site: Blacktop and close to level. - Site Size: long enough to park trailer but could only park out tow vehicle sideways in back of the trailer due to the location of the services. - Site Closeness: Enough room for Awnings and has grass between sites, however these sites are pretty close. - Roads: Asphalt - Long term tenants: Numerous long term tenents. Some of them are very cluttered. Could not believe that they allowed the site to be so bad. - Directv Satellite: Good - Discounts: KOA discount - Payment: Credit Card - Additional Charges: None - Additional Remarks: This is a decent park. The paved road and sites with good grass between them helps. The length of our site was short and the shore services were in the middle but the sewer was so far back that we did not use it. The office personal were nice and helpful. It is close to downtown and if you want to go to the Latter Day Saints genealogy this is a good place to stay. This is an above average KOA. We would stay here again if we come to Salt Lake City. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground located in downtown Salt Lake close to airport. Lots of city noise from traffic and airport. Lots of long term tenants. Very poor internet service. However, friendly staff and very service-oriented. Gave us several handouts showing where everything was located, right down to the nearest COSTCO and Home Depot. Would consider staying here again for passing through town. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great place. Paved roads and roughly 80X40 paved pull-thru’s. Unfortunately we were only there for the night, but our neighbor, who had also stopped for the night, had arrived six days earlier. I guess they were impressed also. My only complaint is that their KOA sign was easy to miss. City ordinances would not allow them to place their sign nearer to the street, so watch closely, as you approach the address. Easy to miss, but well worth looking for. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here 3 nights while sightseeing in the area. It is a great location close to city sites (14 blocks to Temple Square, with free shuttle service, if desired). The services worked well. The water pressure was high, requiring a rented (or your own) water regulator. The pool and hot tub were super! The WiFi worked well; when we ran into a problem with connectivity, the office staff worked hard to get it resolved (which it was). For such a large park, it was very quiet. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was one of the better KOA's that I have stayed at. I was here for 6 nights for a tradeshow and was pleased with the service location and services. The Wi-Fi worked well at my site despite a few dropped signals. The sites were a bit close but I never felt cramped. The pool felt small because it was always busy. The bathrooms and showers were kept clean for the most part and the staff was friendly. Directly adjacent to the KOA is a full rock-and-roll sports bar which had live music and entertainment everynight. All and all I would stay here again if business brought me back to Salt Lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice spot but a little pricey. Couldn't tell you much more than that. Would I stay again? Probably not, to much$$. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent two nights at this typical KOA camp. This site is good for a base camp for Salt Lake City sight seeing. There isn't much to do at the park except the pool and playground. The sites are OK and average width. Hookups are old but OK. There is some decent shade trees. Camp fires were not allowed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice clean campground that is well taken care of. I did not expect that given the number of sites it has. If there was one negative it is that with the size of the city there are no KOA signs guiding you in. So getting there was a little tricky since we did not know the city at all. One nice feature of the campground is that there is a free shuttle to and from Temple Square. You can then use this to not only tour the Square but to walk to the downtown area as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've found in our travels that KOAs can be iffy, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a really good one. The staff was friendly and helpful (like a concierge), the park was well maintained, there were lots of shade trees, the sites were level and the WiFi was at each site and was strong and fast. There is a really nice walking path that snakes around a creek behind the park. We stayed here a week and were totally comfortable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A HUGE KOA park. As such, there are plenty of amenities - most we've ever seen. Showers and bathrooms were top of the mark. Site was level and shaded. Everything worked. However, it's located in a very odd part of town. Close to downtown but also a rail yard, industrial parks and not exactly high rent neighborhoods. We did not feel entirely comfortable at this park but there are few other options available near Sandy, UT where we were visiting friends. This is a great, old KOA but could be a lot nicer if located in a better part of town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a little tight for big rigs but manageable. The pull through sites are long enough to leave the toad attached if you are passing through and the concrete pads are level. The park has a lot of amenities and is quite close to downtown. A private caterer serves breakfast and BBQ dinner at the pavilion. The BBQ is not bad and is priced right. The park is easy to get to if you are passing through Salt Lake City. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Tight, but big rig accessible. The sites are close together. It is a good location to visit downtown Salt Lake City. The utilities, including WiFi, were good. Staff seemed OK, but we were not led to our site. It appears to be a good place for kids. We stayed here two nights and would return if in the area. Rate reflects Value Card discount and tax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was in a good spot to explore Salt Lake from. It is a nice campground with good facilities. The pool and spa are clean and well maintained although like most KOA's full of young children. They have a great basketball court and equipment is free to hire. The internet is provided by Nomad and although free, didn't work for us even though we had full signal - we have found this typical of Nomad. There is a RV wash on the property which may be helpful if you have a dirty RV. All sites are well shaded and have picnic tables. Staff were friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW is the only word I can use for this park. It's right in town; concrete pads, trees, very organized staff, free shuttle to downtown. We would definitely stay here again and next time, for longer! Excellent RV park with lots of activities; especially for a KOA. We've never seen a KOA like this! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Water aerobics was fun and the instructor was very friendly. I wish I could say the same thing about the "Customer Service" lady who escorted us to our site. When I stopped at a turn to let my wife out to watch my back-end, the "lady" go very agitated. She sounded irritated that I didn't blindly trust that I would not cause damage with my wide swing out (I have a 45 foot rig). She blurted out that she escorts Prevosts with long trailers every day, which I took to personally to imply that my rig was not up to her high standard. Well, after that, she appeared so mad at me that she could barely utter her required speech once we got to the site. I assured her that this wasn't my first RV experience and released her of her responsibility. She is probably worn out by new tourists every day and should probably be re-assigned to a non-customer service position. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground had a lot of positives! It's a wonderful green, peaceful oasis, right in the middle of Salt Lake City! It's only a few blocks from the Temple Center. And it borders the Jordan River, which makes for a very convenient and pretty dog walk area!! We'd definitely recommend this place to others staying in the area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We only used this park as a late night arrival and early rise departure so we did not get to use the facilities. Wi-Fi did not work. Cable was acceptable. Resort was typical of UTAH. Had many of the typical KOA amenities, and was clean, although in a city environment. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Its position close to the interstates and to the city make this a very good 'city' RV park. The excellent shuttle service provided by the LDS church members makes access to Temple Square and downtown very convenient. This is a large park but the layout of the sites and access to them makes for easy use. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. Our stay here made the visit to SLC a very enjoyable one We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA was fine. The full-timers are mostly in a separate section. Grass & a tree at every site. It was a little tight getting our 35' RV with a tow car in. After we got in there is a gravel place to park our car right next to RV. Free shuttle to Mormon Tabernacle. Dog walk area is WAY in back about 1/2 mile away from our front spot. We just walked our dog in the grass around our RV and cleaned up after him. I felt safe here. No problems at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Helpful and friendly campground staff. On site BBQ was nice when we pulled in late due to a flat tire en route. The campground is in the not-so-nice end of town, but it seemed fairly isolated and safe. There is some city noise, but more from the frequent comings and goings and the number of people present in such a large camp. Also, the Wi-Fi is seriously under-provisioned: A camp this size will consume as much Internet bandwidth as a good sized neighborhood. The WISP (Nomadix) chokes at any time other than early morning and late evening, so it's clearly not adequate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is very nice and very busy. The staff is excellent and the setting is lovely...lots of trees and nice landscaping. The cable TV and Wi-Fi are great and the hookups are fine. The city has high water pressure so everyone is warned to use pressure regulators upon check in. It is very convenient to the downtown and Temple Square which is an interesting place to go whether you are a Mormon or not. The sites are paved and level with small grassy areas in between, however the sites are rather narrow so you are close to your neighbor. But this is a city park, so space is at a premium. There is a small barbecue food service truck on site which was recommended by our check in person...we found the food to be mediocre at best and not worth the cost of the dinner. However, there are plenty of restaurants nearby if you want to eat out. The laundry is clean and large...no waiting for machines or dryers. There are car and RV washing bays right in the park, too. It seems that this park is near the airport as there was both airplane and helicopter noise, but nothing that kept us awake. I have no idea what the previous reviewer meant about not feeling safe here. The surrounding area is commercial, but does not appear the least bit dangerous or troubling in any way. There are very few RV parks in Salt Lake City, so we would gladly stay here again and consider the cost fair given the amenities and the location. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice RV park, but very crowded and busy! We came in without reservations but were given a nice spot. The staff in the office were very helpful. The sites are fairly close together and the streets kind of narrow, but we didn't have any trouble getting our 35' fifth wheel maneuvered in. There were some pretty large rigs here, too. They have a gate to a nice walking path behind the park that runs along a river or canal. They call it a dogwalk but people use it for hiking and walking. It runs into a well-kept little park behind some state office buildings. We didn't have any problems with the area of town that the park was located in. There were no "undesirables" lurking around and we didn't hear of any crime taking place recently. The other half of the park is for full-timers. It's convenient to downtown and easy access to I-80. We'd certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. Great location to downtown SLC which is a few minutes up the road. Nice management. Clean bathrooms/showers. Nice views of the mountains. Borders a stream that has a foot trail for walks with dogs. Stayed a week and would go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Overall a very good experience. Check-in clerks were very courteous and accommodating. Being January the camp ground was covered in snow (to be expected) and we did not use any of the facilities. The location is very convenient to the airport, downtown and the ski areas. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I don't understand why there are negative reviews of this rv park, it is very clean, great cement long pads, beautiful landscaping, nice picnic tables and the staff was helpful and friendly, easy to enter and exit. They honored our discount card without a hitch. There is some traffic noise but not excessive. I almost passed it by because of some of the reviews and glad I didn't. Thumbs up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for three nights. This is the most convenient RV park to stay at since it is minutes from downtown and Temple Square. This KOA is showing it's age, expecially since this was there busiest time of the year, it was looking tired and worn out. Park needs some updating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a fairly large RV Park located conveniently near downtown. The campground was clean and the staff (mostly) friendly. WiFi coverage is spotty. It was very slow for us (better than nothing). It did work well if you went to the office to use it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great park to stay in while in Salt Lake City area, close to everything and lots of activities planned. During the week, there was water aerobics in the morning, games, movies several times per week in the evening, ice cream social on Saturday. Staff was friendly and helpful in all areas of the park. There is also a free shuttle every hour to Temple Square from the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For an urban campground, this one's not bad. Pretty much shade, convenient to downtown and to major roads (even on the city bus line), small pavilion used for family reunions & other gatherings, large staff. Bathrooms in the main building tend to be sloppy during the day & evening due to all-day pool use next to them; the satellite facility seemed cleaner & nicer. Laundry area large & convenient (if you're camping close to the main building). Campground roads & pads paved (asphalt) with smallish strips of grass in between - sites tight, and not as level as one might expect. Definitely the most conveniently located campground for Salt Lake City and for access to entire range of Salt Lake Valley area. Computer in office for guest use, limited time, sign-in only; Wi-Fi also available for those with their own computers. Nice pool, with water aerobics several weekday mornings, and lots of use all day. The campground is surrounded by a mobile home park, many of which sites are occupied by longterm RV rentals. Very busy, heavily used campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pull thru sites are paved with adjacent gravel pad for vehicle parking. Sites are separated by well maintained grass. Nice size pool and hot tub. We stay at a lot of KOA Kampgrounds, and this is the first one I recall not being escorted to our site especially since three yellow shirt workers were sitting on the golf cart at the entrance. We were not greeted until we got inside. No problem, but not the norm for a KOA. The campground is located in a metro / industrial area close to the airport. Noise was not an issue and being close to the interstate was helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great for young children! There is a pool, spa, playground equipment, a game room with TV, and more. Although there was a bit of confusion among the staff as to which sites were vacant when we arrived, the staff were helpful and friendly. The Park seemed to be located in an area of the city which is a bit run down, but we felt safe in the park as there were so many families there and the staff were buzzing around in their carts checking on things throughout the day. There are decent, free showers that are not all in perfect shape. There is free internet access via a guest computer in the office. The trees next to each site are mature and provide a nice amount shade. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is nice and well kept. The sites are paved and the location to downtown Salt Lake City is excellent. We did not know that the VIP part of the name means that this RV park is in the middle of a very large community of people who live in their RV's permanently. They were nice RV's and it was not a threat or problem. It had a car/RV wash on the premises which is nice. Our problem was that the enormous center part of the park with maybe 100 pull-through sites was completely empty and they crammed our big-rig with 4 slides in the two side rows that were completely full and a little tight because people parked on both sides of the road. We came to ski Park Valley and Snowbird so the pickens were slim. We probably would return, but would lower our expectations. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The restrooms and showers were filthy! A lot of drugs and drug dealing going on inside and just outside of the park. Spaces ere crammed in pretty tight. Bad area of the city with a lot of known gang violence. Would definitely NOT stay here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park with nice managers. Most of the sites are pull throughs and the ones toward the back have smaller trees and the ones toward the front have larger trees. This can be important if you have a satellite dish. The sites are wide enough for our triple slide rig and still be able to walk on the pavement. I would recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a large park but it is nice. The staff was friendly too. The sites and streets are paved. We could get satellite service. It was close to the Family History Library. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pulled in here for a one night stay. Probably got the last big rig pull thru available. The campground is not far from the center part of the city, such as Temple Square. Most sites seem to be fairly close together, but we had no trouble getting in. Apparently near a train, because we heard train whistles all night. Staff tried to be friendly and helpful, but because the place was full, they seemed a bit frazzled. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were pleasantly surprised about this park as it was in downtown Salt Lake City and we normally shy away from KOA parks as being run down and too expensive. But this park was very nice and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We have a 40' motorhome with 3 slides and the site was a little tight but we could get in and put our slides out. We would stay here again as it is centrally located to get around the Salt Lake area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well cared for park and very organized. Most sites are shaded with grass and paved pads. It is 14 blocks from down town yet noise is not a problem. Free shuttle service is provided to Temple Square. We base camped here for 10 days to explore the area. An extra bonus is an on-site cafe run by an older couple. They are open for breakfast and dinner and have a selection of home cooked items. It's very convenient and a good value. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Have stayed here before, but this time was just over night, so they put us in a nice long space so we didn't have to unhook. We were near the long term (monthly) folks that ring the outside of the main part of the park, but the sites were nice and clean. The office staff is very nice and gives lots of information. The Utah State Fair had just opened that day right down the block and we could hear the announcers, but all was quiet by 10:00 pm. Not a great neighborhood overall, but close to the downtown area if you want to see the sights. Will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this park while attending a conference at Salt Lake City. It has great access to downtown. The site we were provided was fine for our motorhome and tow vehicle. Staff were always helpful and the overall attitude within the park was a very friendly one. There is what should be a very pleasant walking trail along the river behind the park but, unfortunately, some campers who simply will not clean up after their dogs make the path a disgusting, filthy mess. Rubbing their noses in their dogs' "leavings" would be a fitting punishment for these people. We booked a spot for 2008 before leaving. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I initially was not going to review this park because I basically agreed with most of the positive comments. It has nice sites and very good facilities. What caught my eye was all the negative comments about the area around the park - "thug haven, bad side of town, industrial area, not a great neighborhood." I took an hour plus walk up and down the the main street and saw nothing but shops, small businesses, fast food places, etc. and one large modern 4 story office bldg. I was still befuddled by other reviewers' negative comments until I realized that the only other pedestrians I saw on my walk were Latinos. Sad to think that was the basis for those negative comments. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A large park, well maintained with several permanent residents. Caters to all types of camping from tents to motorhomes. Very mature with lots of grass, trees, paved sites, on-site RV wash station. Even has air compressor for your tires. Store has relatively good supply and has several RV items. Staff seemed friendly and helpful, especially the work campers. Park has arrangement with Temple Square for free tours and vans run back and forth fairly frequently. If you're staying on a Sunday morning, you can take a shuttle to the Square and sit in on a live broadcast of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. All in all a good place to stay even though it's such a large park. And oh yes, you will hear train whistles all through the night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for one night on a cross-country trip. The park was crowded and noisy, primarily due to it's location in an industrial area of Salt Lake City. During the night, we heard train whistles and in the morning we heard loudspeaker noise from a nearby factory. The showers were not clean and should really be maintained more than once a day due to the high volume of use that they get in this large park. Additionally, the game room was not open in the morning at the posted time. On the plus side, the park is located near a nice park and fairgrounds. It is near many fast food places and grocery stores and 14 blocks from Temple Square. The Square is not walking distance and hard to get to if you don't have a vehicle available. The staff was friendly. I would only stay here again if I was interested in doing things in Salt Lake City and wanted to be nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Salt Lake City KOA is a very pleasant KOA. I would say it is above average as far as KOA's go. The store is small, however the trees are mature and with paved roads and level sites, our overall experience was very nice. It is located in the older part of town, however we did not experience any difficulty finding it. The staff was friendly to us, and there is a fitness trail and running path next to the Jordan river which runs directly behind the KOA. The pool is clean and the park is clean as well. There are no fire pits..., however that was not a deal breaker for us. Loved the park, and would return anytime we are in the area! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would rate this park as average. The sites were black top. Maneuvering a 40' motorhome through this park was difficult. The WIFI was low power and very slow. In fact it did not work part of the time. The park is 14 blocks from the LDS Family Library. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I am very unhappy with our stay at this park the staff was very rude and the park is located on the bad side of town. Our car was broke into while we were sleeping and the park didn't even act like it was anything new when I informed them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow, talk about a huge campground! The pool was great - cold water on a hot day, misters on the deck to keep watchers cool too. Sites had shared picnic areas - only drawback. Level sites with pavement, good water pressure, cable with lots of stations, etc. Loved it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is kept up very nicely with pull through sites that have a small grass area and a tree. For how close it is to the downtown area, we were very happy with the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Over priced, overrated and rude. I made reservations 4 months in advance and it took us 2 hours to find the park. It's located in thug haven, right downtown Salt Lake City. By the time we got there, they had us placed in a site that was to small for our rig. I was so unhappy that we left without even inquiring about a refund. I found another park about 15 miles south and they accommodated our stay very nicely. I will never return to this park the staff was rude and they were to busy with teenagers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large and very busy KOA with many permanent/semi-permanent residents. Access roads and pads are paved. Our extra-cost but not Deluxe pull-through site was long enough for our 40' rig and towed vehicle. Office was busy and somewhat cramped for the size of the park. Park staff was OK, but workamper was terrific! Nice location to downtown SLC. Train noise is constant, but not too bad depending on your location in the park. Pool use is restricted to residents. We camped here for four days. We paid $40 per night with our KOA Value Card discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very large park with a lot of permanent residents. Reception desk personnel not extremely friendly. Good for overnight while in Salt Lake City due to excellent location to downtown area. Trains can be heard all night. Would stay again only for proximity to everything. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Generally concur with other comments--large well-maintained park with level spaces adequate for big rigs. Near airport but no airport noise, and no traffic noise. I didn't hear the trains that some mentioned, but the park is so big, I could have been much farther away from the tracks. The east section with lower-priced long term spaces is more of a trailer park, while the west section is more short-term and more like a typical high-turnover RV park. The park is located in an industrial area, but it's not scary. I walked/strolled downtown in about 30 minutes. Two things to be aware of: (1) I deposited outgoing mail in the group of mailboxes long-term residents use--about halfway down the main road through the park. That mail never got delivered; I don't know if it's still in there or lost somewhere or what. I called the office from our next destination, but the girl who answered the phone didn't understand much about mail (probably a teenager thing). (2) The park's web site claims a self-service RV wash that will handle the biggest rigs, but the clearance marked on the bay is 11'8"--not big enough for mine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've been back to this park more than once. It's always best to call ahead because the best sites get taken right away. Nonetheless, on this last visit, we got one of the last phone sites and we were very satisfied. We had done the tourist-bit on previous stays; this was just a couple nights to rest well along the road. The park brochure is one of the best sources for directions to get to and from the major highways. Twice I used their directions to reach I-15 North and South and - lo & behold - their suggested routes were easier than ones I had taken in the past! We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon making the initial reservation we spoke to two different people and got two different rates. At the time, we did not realize there were two different sections and this was not explained to us. The KOA side monthly rate we were quoted was $600 full hookups and the CampVIP side was $335 full hookups. Of course, we chose the less expensive price. When we arrived we went to our assigned space. After putting our slides out we almost touched the trailers on either side of us. The "grass" between the sights is full of weeds and stickers. The "full hookup" does not include electricity and cable. We heard train whistles all night. We came here to go to the Family History Library and this is the only convenient place to camp in the immediate area. We will tough it out but will not stay here again. Lesson learned to make sure to ask enough questions before you commit. We've used this site as a guide as we travel and it has proven to be quite accurate in its assessments. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a very large park, with high use. It is very centrally located to Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake. Was easy to find. Office staff was friendly and efficient. I appreciated the cable TV and the WiFi internet available through KOA. Although sites were close together, it was a quiet,well-maintained campground. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice older Park. Lots of Rigs in and out, Nice staff, helped us out on finding things around Salt Lake. sites are a little close to each other but not a big deal. Would go to again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park. Clean and well maintained. Concrete pads with grass between and nice trees. A lot of permanent residents, and the VIP side of the park did not look as nice. Great pool. Seems to be located in kind of an industrial area close to the airport, but no problem with airport noise. Only 14 block from main downtown area of Salt Lake so location is very convenient. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clueless teenager in the office, but a sharp guy in the golf cart in the park. Nice folks and a clean older park. It was packed when we were there and they were sending folks to WalMart, so make sure you call ahead. Pool was clean and the sites were well kept and lots of green grass. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient park for SLC. Friendly young people in office are efficient and accommodating. Wi-Fi worked with no interruptions. Clean spaces, hot tub and pool. Pool is not heated and all close at 10pm. Many sites have mature trees. Park has area for long term renters adjacent to RV Park. They host dinners each night of week for reasonable amount. Didn't try, but sounded like good home cooked meals. Would not walk outside area at night, but saw no problems here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The best of the 3 parks in the SLC area. Nightly price seems expensive, but weekly rate w/Good Sam or AAA is $162 (2 nights free), so that brings it down to $23/night. The only park of the 3 with wi-fi, although a pay service, we paid for the month-to-month service which is only $16.95 and cancellable within 1st month. The park is clean and kept up. Even has a restaurant of sorts from a mobile trailer & serves up home cookin'. My only complaint is that there's train tracks all around, so the train whistles are frequent, including at night. I'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Huge park, very well kept and clean. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Rates are high, but definitely worth it if your looking for a full service campground with all amenities. Will visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice campground for a major city. Sites are not too narrow, some have grass for your chairs. Pool was large, store was well stocked. Close to the city to go site seeing. Everything you need for the city. The wireless internet does not work from my camp site and I had to take the laptop up to the pool area to use it. But once there it did work fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super location for access to downtown SLC, and to serve as a base camp for the local area. Staff was friendly and the park was well kept and clean. Paved pads with grass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park that is well kept and clean. Paved pads with grass. Good "Big Rig"
access in the spaces available for them. A good "base camp" for the Salt Lake Area. I'd stay again with my 42 footer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a good place to stay couple days or weeks. Staff was nice, place was clean, and we had no problems. We camped here in a camper.
Large park, convenient to downtown Salt Lake, the freeway, and bus stops. It was quiet. Gets busy during summer. Good for winter or off season long term usage. We camped here in a camper.
