Lakeside RV Campground
Lakeside RV Campground is located in Provo, close to Utah Lake. The first time we stayed here we were very new with the RV and had a difficult time with navigating the roads. They are average sized for most campgrounds. Now, they are no problem to navigate. I like the location as it is close to friends and family. We knew when we started this journey, the first year we would be staying close to home. We jumped into this lifestyle very quickly, a few months after deciding to buy the fifth wheel and travel, empty the house, rent it out, and now here we are! Appointments, two weddings, vacations, plans with friends and families that were scheduled already and the ability to travel very far away is yet to be down the road.
Timing is everything in Provo. Utah Lake and the surrounding areas have a lot of mosquitos at certain times of the year. Usually in the spring. The first two visits we were lucky, no mosquitoes. The third, a usually hot time of year, but some summer storms and rain for several days and the mosquitoes were out! The campground is a little older, but they are kept clean and manicured, there are some long term residents, but the spaces they are in are nice, and not at all trashy looking. Office staff have been friendly and helpful everytime we have called or went in to the office. We scheduled our reservation wrong and were reimbursed for the days we overscheduled on our second visit without any problem. Lakeside RV Campground is located a little ways from town, so no walking to any restaurants or shopping. It requires a five to ten minute drive into town for the stores and restaurants. They do bring in food trucks regularly, we were there a week, over the 4th of July, and they had four different trucks during that week. Five minutes up the road is the best steak sandwich shop around too!
The general store, laundry, showers, restrooms and pool are all located in the main building, as well as a smaller shower out building located at the lower level of row H. The laundry room is small, only five or six washers and dryers. I have not had any problem with getting access to them on any of our visits, but it could be an issue if there were busy times. Parking at the main building is limited.Space at your site is enough to park, your tow vehicle at your site, that is a big thing for me! There is also a river trail alongside the park with steps up to the trail. What we really like about this campground is the many mature trees and the shade. There is so much natural shade around, it is very nice. You can hear the water from the stream when it is quiet.
Although we know we will return due to the location close to family and friends, our ‘will we return’ meter is at 75% as the space between the rigs is a little tight, the mosquitoes on the last visit were rough, and the cable did not have great reception at site G11. There is room for improvement, but it is still the best RV Campground in the area in my opinion! So this will always be our first go to when we need to go back to home base.
