Pony Express RV Resort
1012 Recreation Way, North Salt Lake, Ut 84054
Site # C 33
This was a smaller rig site, our rig fit, but our truck did not. We had to park down the road. The overflow parking was sometimes hard to find close to us, plenty available in the park, but a nice walk to our spot. The bigger rig spots were large and nice for the bigger rigs.
Amenities: Full hook ups, laundry, pool in season, small store. Showers and restrooms at several locations. Dog run, playground, horseshoe pit. Grass in between spots. Cement pads for easy leveling. Gated entrance.
Would We Stay Again? Good as a short term stay, or as a stopover point on the way to a final destination!
Pony Express RV Resort
Pony Express RV Resort located in North Salt Lake Utah. A little difficult, needed navigation to find, but is close to an RV dealership with service and parts. The closest town for shopping and restaurants is a fifteen to twenty minute drive on the freeway. Freeway access is very easy from the site. Freeway is seen and the noise is also heard. An industrial plant is also close by, so at times some obnoxious odors can be smelled. The resort itself is very clean and well maintained. The cleanest I have seen. Grass is green and no weeds, all sites are concrete, level with a moderate strip of grass, picnic table and large streets to navigate. Cabins are available for camping, no tent sites. I liked it better than Collin did, he thought it was a little too concrete jungle. It was easy for me to walk at lunch, close to the Jordan Parkway trail, had bikes and carts to rent and nice staff. I looked at reviews from several sites before we booked here. They all had all only three stars. All were for the freeway noise and the intermittant smell of the refinery. These two things are something the park cannot change, and they are doing everything else right. We both at one time or another have lived close to this area and did not really notice the smell. Freeway noise doesn’t bother me much so the noise wasn’t a big deal for me. The negatives for me was the sites were all pull in the same direction so the sewer lines were at your picnic table. And the distance to town.
We stayed here last minute as we were planning on a boondocking site for the time specified and the site we had planned was flooded out. Spring and summer camping in Utah can be difficult to obtain sites close to the Salt Lake Valley and we had our daughter’s wedding so we had to be in the area. All area campgrounds were full due to the start of the camping season. We called at the last minute and they were able to find us a spot that was a little smaller than we would normally fit, but we were very happy to have it! There were also not as many full time living here as in some of the other parks we have been in. Only a few of the many spots had full time people in them.
