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.
This KOA is in town, next to a soon to be completed light rail line. Nicely kept and the people are nice. I am a light sleeper and the freight train line, nor the airport bothered me. However, in cold weather, they turn off the ventilation in the clean men's showers leading to high humidity and smells. Plus there is a long term resident, who leaves the toilets totally gross. Somewhat expensive.
Given this park is in the heart of SLC it should come as no surprise that it's quite busy. It's also pretty noisy all night from constant train activity. This park will work in a pinch but campers wanting more peace and quiet might be better off with sites well north or south of SLC.
While the park is huge, the eastern section is a park for permanent residents. All the spaces are pull-thrus and there are lots of trees, all of which have been trimmed up far above where any RV might hit them. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are 2 sites that are designated as patio sites (I assume they cost more); these have a swing, a patio set with 4 chairs and a fire pit. First time we've seen that!
The sites are relatively spacious, each with a picnic table. The best bath house as designated by an employee is very clean, with tile walls, floors and ceiling. In both the men's and the women's there was one of three showers out of order. Unfortunately, in the men's the handicap shower was closed because tiles were falling from the ceiling and one of the other showers had a nice seat and 3 hooks to hang your clothes. In the other, the seat was missing. If the real estate principle of location-location-location applies to you, this park is only 2 miles from Temple Square, the center of SLC.
The Red Iguana (excellent Mexican restaurant) is only a little over a mile away. There is a shuttle from the park that takes you to Temple Square; you DO have to listen to a half hour tour of the Square in payment. There are a number of buses that go to Temple Square as well.
This is a Good Sam Park.
