As everyone has mentioned this is for Elks members and their guest. We stayed 5 days. Utilities are very strong. Have a water pressure regulator as it is 85 psi. Fifty-30-20 amp service. Strong TV on manual antenna. Wi-Fi is very weak at the RV. We used our Wi-Fi booster and got a decent signal. Near or inside the Lodge, Wi-Fi is excellent with a 15 meg download! Dinners are now on Wednesday evening. One of the nicest, most modern lodge we've been to. This is our second trip back. If all sites are full you can boondock near the sites for $5.00 We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is available to Elks Members only and is a great stop when traveling in this area. We have stayed here several times. Long back in full hook up sites in the rear of their building. Definitely will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Glad the previous review was available as we hadn't realized that the Provo Elks Lodge had RV sites. We had trouble finding it because it sits back off University Ave. You must enter between the KFC and Al's Barbecue. This is a tight turn but doable even in a forty foot motorhome. This is a very nice and friendly club. Their Friday night dinners are very good: full menu. The special tonight was prime rib and our meal for two cost about $24. Very nice service. The RV sites are wide but just on a paved lot, nothing fancy. We would come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice Elks club. Strictly for Elk members and their guests. The RV section is at the back of the parking lot and asphalt. The sewer hookup is a little difficult since it is elevated. Other than that it's a great place to stop. They give the new arrivals one drink at no cost. We will definitely come back here if we're in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love the dog park. My two dogs had not had a chance to run for three weeks! Nice park with easy access form I-15. When we visited, it was quiet. The staff was friendly. Lots of trees for shade. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice little park and very convenient to I-15. Being a straight-shot mile or two off the interstate, we found it very easy to get to, get around in (with our 40' coach with no toad), and get out of and back on the freeway. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the park itself if shady and peaceful - tho we did encounter a handful of young children enjoying the nice weather and park environs. The only downsides, from our perspective, were a somewhat sluggish Wi-Fi system and fuzzy cable TV. To overcome these issues we used our Verizon Mi-Fi and our OTA broadcast antenna. That said, we would certainly stay here again if we found ourselves in the Provo area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located a couple miles west of Provo in a rural setting. Very nice park with huge trees, paved streets, grass between sites, and excellent utilities. AC never went below 120 VAC even in the morning when temp was in upper 30s and probably everyone in the park was running at least one electric heater. Water pressure was 55# with excellent volume. Wi-Fi was marginal in the back of the park where we were located. Owners allowed me to hand wash my RV and truck at no additional cost. Very quiet park 24/7. Pull-through sites are easy in and out. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park. Polite, friendly check-in. Across from Provo airport. Larger jets, not regional jets! Nights were quiet. Walking distance to Utah State Park and Provo walking/bike trail. The Verizon signal was poor. The WIFI was decent. We were there three nights and the one small dumpster for the park was never emptied. Neither was the trash can full of dog poop at the large dog run. The RV spots are tight but fine for our stay. Lots of permanent residents and bordering on a "mobile" home park. At least three big school buses every morning to p/u kids in park. A few signs in front of trailers said " Beware of Dog". We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stay at this park whenever in the Provo area and it is one of our favorites. It has lots of large trees and grass and is very pretty. It is out of town so it is quiet. The park is full a lot because of workers who are using it to live in. They seem to be transient and move around a lot, so you might want to make reservations. We were surprised to find the park full at this time of year. Facilities are mostly clean, but problems are the fault of guests and not the park. We will stay here again. The park owners are doing their best to keep it nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We had stayed in another park just down the road last year and were inundated with bugs. Not so at this lovely park full of mature shade trees and operated by respectful and helpful proprietors. Were assigned a pull-through site which was fairly level and not so near our neighbors that we could put our slides and awning out as well as enjoy the picnic table during happy hour without feeling cramped in the least. Wi-Fi was a bit strained, no doubt due to the nearly full park. Pool was clean and enjoyable. Very cute ice cream/gelato trailer right on property. Lots of families but everyone got along and the ruckus that sometimes goes with children running amuck was not to be seen. Our next morning was started by observing a mini cattle drive by ATV cowboys going right down the street outside the park. Didn't think much about it until stopping for gas in Ogden and noticing the "leavings" on the motor home splash guards and the front of the toad. A good bit of water did the trick. It was only an overnight for us but we would definitely return for one or multiple nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has lovely shade trees, but lacks privacy of any kind. It has those darn side-by-side hookups, which do not allow for privacy. However, the hosts take good care of the grounds and the bike trail is handy in the state park next door. It is well located for activities in the city. Wi-Fi works well and we were distant from the office. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The turn into the park needs to be marked on the road before the curve, I missed the entrance and had to pull into the 2nd turn-in. Check-in was easy but the clerk was not the friendliest. The roads are paved but have cuts in them - not sure if that is for speed reduction or work that was done and never repaired. The sites are gravel, fairly level with a patch of grass between you and your neighbor. You share the electrical box with your other neighbor. (One camper had their electric accidentally turned off by their neighbor during the day.) The grounds are well maintained. Bring bug repellent since the mosquitoes are bad after dusk. The store is well stocked for most emergent needs--water, milk, cable coax, etc. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park but sites can be hard to get into and out of with a large rig as there are metal posts at the corners of the sites. Sites were alternate head-to-toe, so you shared a grassy area with your neighbor. Adequate length. In order to stay off the grass on one side, we almost couldn't get our slides out without hitting the posts on the other side. Park was well-maintained, pool and bathrooms were very clean. A nice dog walk along the river and a short walk to Utah Lake State Park ($2 per person to walk in). Friendly people in the office; very helpful. Quiet at night. "Snack trailer" to get ice cream, etc. Some shade. Gravel sites. Cable OK. Wi-Fi wasn't great. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly site. Staff welcomed us and we felted like part of the family. WIFI did not work worth a darn. Cable TV did work, although channel selection limited. We would definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Big park, nicely laid out, lots of grass. Long ways to the bath/shower area. Sites were level and well laid out for our trailer set up. The new dog run was a highlight for our dog. She hadn't been able to just run for over a week, so wanted to go there often. Ladies in the office were great. Can see why it was/is rated one of the best in the country. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you don't want your neighbor 3' away, and you care about your RV, don't stay here! Sites are back-to-back and very tight. Management seems to be more interested in the condition of their "grass" than in the comfort of their guests. They have in-ground sprinklers that saturate the ground by your RV and spray mineral-laden water on the sides of your vehicles. The sites are lower than the grass, so you end up with a pond at your front door! Electric power was not balanced (108v and 116v). Cable TV was very snowy - clerk blamed it on our cable. Cleanliness of the grounds was lacking. Office staff seems disinterested. And don't expect them to answer their telephone! Do yourself a real favor and stay somewhere else! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Close is not the word to describe the sites. The fifth wheel next to us could not open his slides. You sit side by side so you must share the small grassy area with another RV which may include seasonal people with a lot of stuff & animals. No satellite because of trees. Pull-thru was long enough for our 45 ft and Jeep. There are lots in the rear of the park that stay empty while everyone is jammed together up front. Good 50 amps. Park is clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Darling place. Lots of trees, which is great in the heat (already in the high 80's). Sites close, and some of the trees can be close for the awnings (our neighbors moved so they could put theirs out) but after looking at the other choices in the area, they were ALL close, and without the shade trees! I, for one, like the cute signs and little additions around the entrance, pool and office/gift shop areas (makes it friendly) and the staff is super nice too. Lots of bugs at dusk and the wind really kicks up, so no sitting out in the evening, but nice up until then. We didn't use the pool or other facilities, but they all looked good. TV was fuzzy, but found out it was our cable wires, so not their fault. This was a Good Sam rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful setting among tall cottonwood trees next to the Provo River. You don't see the river from camp but there's an elevated dirt walking path at the edge of camp that runs beside it that is super for the dogs. Nice pet run and lots of grass around for them, too. Its a popular camp because of proximity to the lake (at the end of the street), and the rigs are set close. it seems to be mostly full with some seasonal visitors. it is very well run and maintained. Wi-Fi was slow during the day because of park size. We couldn't get satellite due to trees. They provide cable. Provo is a beautiful city and surrounding area. They have a 16 mile greenway paved trail that runs from the camp, along the river, through fields and farms to the town and university. A delightful bike ride. We would stop here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park although sites are close together. Nice mature trees, grassy areas, level sites and good hook-ups. Wi-Fi and cable work well (except when it rains) cable is out of date (analog and limited channels)so I often went with my antenna. Rate reflects week discount and Good Sam. Grocery and fuel are readily available as are local attractions. Had no problem with the in-out of the sites. Pool and other 'extras' are nice if you need them - pool was closed in May - but for a one night stay they seem wasted. Nice place to 'visit' for one night or stay for awhile if you can handle the high rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Was given a "Pull-thru" for the one night stay, but could not pull thru due to tree branches hanging low. I was able to back out and go around. Wish the rating system rated the actual campsite and how they accommodate either motorhomes or trailers / 5th wheel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel and grass sites. Large trees. Property was in need of maintenance with limbs everywhere. Shared common area with adjacent RV. Cable and WiFi did.not work while we were there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an attractive park set 2 miles off of I-15. Roads are paved; sites are gravel. All sites are pull-through and are arranged side by side so you share a utility pedestal with the rig on your driver's side. The sites are definitely on the narrow side; if you and your neighbor both have slides you will have only inches between them. The park has lots of mature trees which prevented us from getting satellite TV, but they do have free cable. WiFi is free; Verizon 4G signal was strong and fast. There are lots of seasonal/long term sites, but the park is very neat and attractive. We were in site G-1 which was easy for us to get in and out of with our toad attached; not all sites would be that easy. It appears they try to put the transients in the #1 sites in each row for that reason. Not a bad place for an overnight on the south side of the Salt Lake City metro area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful setting just to the west of Provo and BYU. Rustic setting among mature trees. Very quite. Gravel with grass in between. Some of the sites look to be a bit tight especially is you have sliders. Restrooms were clean, but a bit dated with one of the three showers out of service on the mens side. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I echo the previous reviews and add the following. Located about 3 miles west of I-15, local traffic slows during the night and the park is relatively quiet. I measured their WiFi at about 3 Mbits/se. Adequate, but not extreme. The sites (ours was H1 next to the WiFi) are side by side. Follow the campground map so your utility side matches the park's utility setup. Many of the park's residents appear to be permanent so it has a cluttered look. Excellent for an overnight in Provo on your way through the Salt Lake traffic and not far from Spanish Fork Costco, if that wags your tail. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice long, level, shady pull through site that was back to back with lawn and picnic table between. All utilities were placed properly and worked very well. The staff was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our time here and will stay again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here before and would so again. The campground is quiet. The bugs noted by other posters is due to the nearby, fresh water Utah Lake. It is a good campground for visiting the Provo area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here previously and would stay again. Sites are closer together than we prefer. A picnic table and a grassy area is associated with each site. Our site was close to level and gravel. Not a lot of warning or visibility of the park as you approach, so be watching. Turn in is right at end of concrete barrier. Had a lot of bugs of an evening We camped here in a Motorhome.
Tight turns and very narrow sites. Cable available but very snowy. Didn't realize it, but if we had gone a quarter mile further, we would have ended up at a beautiful, roomy Utah State Park for less money and access to a lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice shady park, roomy pull-through. Quiet, good TV and internet. There was a large swimming pool and a small store in the registration area. Could not see the lake, but the Provo River is right next to the park, and Utah lake is about 1/2 mile away. Easy to get to and from I-15. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Was pleasantly surprised to find this family campground could accommodate a 40' motor coach, plus vehicle. We only stayed one night so we didn't want to detach toad. Site was level; water pressure good; Cable good; Wi-fi good. It was tight making the turns but doable. RVs were side by side, facing one another; hook ups located between the two RVs. Would have ranked higher but sites were too close; when slides were out there wasn't much room between the neighboring RVs. Bonus: Snack Shack had great ice cream and shaved ice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate shown is with Good Sam discount. Our site was a good gravel almost level pull-through and included a table. Our utilities were shared with another site. There was grass on the table side. Many mature shade trees. We didn't have a fire ring, but the row of tent sites did. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi signal was strong. For a view of the lake go next door to the state park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First, be careful approaching this campground. You'll come across a bridge, and the entrance is just past the bridge with a very small blue camping sign just prior to the turn which is all the city will allow. If you miss it, you can enter in the exit like we did. The CG has lots of shade. We only stayed one night, but I don't think you'll get satellite. They have cable. You are side/side with the pull throughs and close. Your 'front porch' opens to your neighbor's, and you share a common grass area. We only had one picnic table. We may have been in the CG's overnight space and not 'get' our own. The tables throughout the park were in need of a good paint scraping and repainting. If I traveled with little people, I'd definitely cover it with a tablecloth for use. It's been a cooler, wetter Spring, but the grass was a bit out of hand. We didn't use their WI-FI. Verizon worked great. The CG is on a road but the noise was not bad, and I'm sensitive to it. The airport is just across the road, but no bother there either - maybe we got lucky with the wind so the landing runway was not near us. The site was easy to level. I felt safe there. By the way, the lake was not within walking distance that I could see. The utility pole was in great shape. There aren't many good camping choices in SLC. They are right off the interstate. I do think this is the best 'natural' CG in the area and I am glad we stayed there. We'd definite use this CG for an extended stay or just passing through again. Happy Motoring! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate includes a Good Sam discount. When we arrived we mistook a part of the park for a storage. We've never seen a park where RV's were packed so close. Luckily this was the seasonal area. The transients area had the same design but was only 40% full, so we enjoyed a little privacy. Level was ok. Hookups in the right place. Lots of trees provided shade and there was a little trail around the park. VERY family friendly! Our kids are grown up, but if we had little ones, this would be a place to camp together. We would come back for a couple of nights in the shoulder season, but in high season only sardines would enjoy the stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a nice campground, due to bad weather we stayed for two days. Did find that the sites were tight, and we had to unhook as truck had to be parked behind trailer. The laundry facilities were clean. This park has a number of workers and families living there. Did find some of the kids to be disrespectful riding their bikes through our site, not really the fault of the campground. There was a nice walkway along the river with very large trees. It was early spring so can imagine in summer this must be quite pretty. Would consider visiting this campground again. Internet was super fast. Some staff were friendly, some others, not so much. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff very helpful and friendly. We were a long way from the office and the Wi-Fi was excellent and fast. The sites are gravel but level. Lots of cable TV channels. We would definitely stay here again. It is near an airport, but no problem with noise. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Lovely campground! Big, spacious full-service sites. Lots of "doggy" space for walking. 50 amp, water, sewer, cable, WiFi. Only issue, if there is one, is the WiFi is not accessible from some of the sites - ours, in fact! Too weak a signal. If it's important to you, ask to be put in a site closer to the office. While we were only here one night, I would definitely consider a longer stay here. Friendly staff at check-in, lovely surroundings, quiet park with comfortable sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall, this is a fairly nice campground. There are some problems as stated in the other reviews such as an airport located just a few miles away,and you are fairly close to your neighbor. But there are many nice things too, such as large shade trees, good internet, Utah lake park within walking distance, and one of the most beautiful walking/biking paths you could ever want along the Provo river that goes all the way into Provo Canyon. Access to this is just a block away. This is the third time we stayed at this park in the last two years and would stay here again. The rate reflects the monthly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was a nice place to stay. It was quite. The staff was helpful. The spaces are side by side which worked fine for us. We had lots of room on the door side. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
After baking in the summer heat elsewhere, it was nice to park under the lovely trees throughout the park. Enjoyed having a river walk and state park along Utah Lake a stone's throw away. Pads were gravel, side by side setup (very narrow), nice patch of grass on other side with picnic table. Water pressure was good, laundry facilities clean, and the office staff very friendly. Drawback was the very unreliable WiFi. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and weekly stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very unfriendly staff, noisy, utilities for two sites together so your driver side is practically touching your neighbor. 90% of campground full of permanent residents ~ school bus even stops here. Close to airport and busy road. We have a large RV. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I love the feel of this park with nice mature trees and grass. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are all nice. The staff is friendly. Cable is OK; Wi-Fi had some problems for a few days, but it seems OK now. BUT the way the hookups are set up, two rigs must share the same utility posts and thus, are only a few feet from each other. I HATE having to keep my windows and shades closed because our neighbors are three feet away from us on that side. It is just awful. It ruins our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff was friendly and helpful upon check in. Our spot was a pullin which was easily accessible from the office. The utilities were adequate but the shared pedestal with the side by side parking is something I totally dislike in a park of this price. Our slides are only scant feet from our side by side neighbor and that one thing causes me to downgrade the rating of this park. There is commingled recycling here, which I applaud them for. The park WiFi actually works which is a rarity in most parks. We do have a Verizon 4G connection if we need it. There are lots of shade trees but we still got DirecTV on our dish. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Shady, restful, good laundry room, helpful, friendly staff. Can't say enough good things about Family RV for onsite repairs while here. Only bad things - mosquitoes and flying bugs at night, and poor cable hookups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful shaded flat pull-throughs. Easy in-easy out. Plenty of space for 38ft. fifth wheel. Park well-maintained. Nice pool. Surrounded on 3 sides by small river: shaded walkway around it. In the evenings have snack shack open for shaved ice treats and ice cream. All utilities worked well: cable TV with lots of channels. Some channels are a little fuzzy but not bad. Surrounding area very pretty. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We liked this place. It is clean and seems to be well run. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Only complaint was the lack of bathrooms. They are only at one end of the park. Nice dog walk along the river. On the other side of the river is a great bike path. We stayed here for 6 days even though we wanted to get going, but it was fine. No problem with WiFi or TV. Sites are a little close. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Just stayed here one night. Lots of kids and families, so at times a little loud. Sites are close together too. Lots of nice trees and shade. Cable TV reception was fair to poor depending on what channel you were watching and Internet speed was just fair. If these things are not important to you, then this is a nice place to stay. Big rig friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very shabby and dirty with lots of old, not taken care of trailers with tons of junk outside. The only good part about the park is it was shady. We needed some work done on our RV and the mobile RV service listed in their brochure never returned our calls. When we asked the owner to recommend someone else he was not interested in helping. We will not return to this park due to the awful customer service and the shabby condition of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are a little close together. Our site had a gravel driveway, picnic table and grassy area. Campground is pet friendly with lots of grassy areas to walk in. Strong wifi signal at site. Staff was very friendly. Overall a nice campground! We camped here for a week in our motor home and would stay here again if in the Provo Area. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice park, but we were here only two nights and didn't use any of the facilities. There wasn't any water view sites, but you did have access to the river. There was a dyke that you had to walk up to get to the river. Would consider staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One of the nicer independent campgrounds we have stayed at. The campground is situated in a mature forest and while each pair of sites are close together, there are nice grassy areas in between. There is a pleasant path around the campground perimeter adjacent to the stream. Just around the corner from the campground is a miles-long, paved river pathway that is good for walking or cycling. The campground area stays nice and cool in the summer, with all the shade and the nearby Utah lake. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice place, a short way to the Lake, and on the Provo River. Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites were basically level gravel with some grass to side. Picnic tables. Situated among a grove of cottonwoods, so there is plenty of shade. Clean and well maintained all round. Very clean, good showers and restrooms. Our biggest draw back was the fact of so many resident: they had all the spaces closest to the 1 restroom/showers. Nice little store. The pool was here but we did not use it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice location, very nice owners, good-sized spaces. In the summer there are so many mosquitoes, though! The nature nearby is very nice - we saw baby great horned owls in their nest not even 50 feet from our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although the grounds around the office/pool/restrooms/showers/laundry was well kept, most of the long term residence sites are a mess. All pull throughs are side by side hook-ups & you share the small grassy area with the camper next to you on the other side - very tight. Turns are also tight for big rigs. All utilities worked well. I couldn't get satellite TV because of the trees, but their cable was OK. Nice walking/biking trail nearby. State Park & campground at end of road on the lake looked very nice, we would probably try that if we returned to the area. Rate with Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ok, so where is the lake? Oh, I see, a river. Slight exaggeration. Sites are "side by side" duplexes where two RV's share a pole, but point different directions. Although there is adequate spacing between the "duplexes," if someone is on the other side of your "duplex," you are in a "pass the mustard" situation. Fortunately, I didn't have to share a "duplex" the one night I stayed. There is a "group camp" area that looks like someone is using it for storage of old equipment. Lots of trees that provide shade if it's summer time. Cable is decent, good selection of channels. Wi-Fi is unsecured, no password required. Plenty of playground equipment for children. Good for an overnight stay, wouldn't stay here much more than that. Rate I'm showing is with Good Sam Discount and taxes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was below average to say the least. The services they provide may or may not be here when you get here. They are not in a hurry to correct it. The owner was extremely rude to me and when I was here. She was extremely rude to her employees. I would not recommend this camp to anyone, at least anyone who wants an enjoyable stay. Goodbye and Good riddance: you won't see me here again. I won't come within five miles of this campground/city. I would rather sleep on the side of the road with my doors unlocked. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
Nice location, friendly staff, clean restroom and showers, $1 laundry machines, propane available, scenic! Construction en route was the only downer. We decided to leave early to avoid new snow, and they even refunded the balance. This was very nice and much appreciated. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, friendly owners, lots of shade, Provo River walking trail nearby as well as Utah Lake access. Didn't have a problem with mosquitoes when we were there until late evening. Nearby geocaches if interested. Only problem was highway construction on I-15 made getting to the park a challenge. I think this one is much nicer than the nearby KOA we stayed at before. Would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our third stay at Lakeside RV Park. I noticed a couple negative reviews and wanted to let other travelers know this is a very pleasant park. There are lush green lawns around the sites and brand new playground equipment. We love the woodsy feel from all the trees around. River is there if you like to fish. Sites have all the amenities and propane is available. The staff is friendly, and it was nice to be welcomed back like friends this time. We will definitely be back with our motorhome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not sure how this park got such a high rating with Trailer Life. Sites were overgrown gravel and off level. Many were flooded and/or boggy from recent rains and there was a mosquito problem. Difficult to park our 34' fifth wheel in the pull through sites, as they are at a 90 degree angle from a small access road. And the neighboring sites are so close we could barely walk between rigs on the hook up side with the slides out. Road construction on the interstate in Provo makes driving a nightmare. We'll be avoiding this area and this campground in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Al-thought the area was enjoyable the RV park itself could use some improvement. The restrooms, showers, and pool are very clean but the there is a flooding and mosquito problem. The park Wi-Fi Internet access is unreliable. Cellular phones and data cards do not always work at this location. The manager and owner were very rude. There are a few other RV parks in this area and we would recommend trying one of them instead! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped in June. The sites are at lake level and are wet. There is a pond near by and lots of free standing water. Mosquitoes were abundant. We blew a 15 amp fuse and the store was all out. We will not be returning to this RV Park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice little campground I am sure when it doesn't rain. Unfortunately, that is all they have had this spring and many campsites are flooded. The Provo River borders these grounds and because it is only 1/4 mile from the Utah Lake, it can be a dangerous place to be when flooding occurs, especially when the snow melt comes down in June. Lots of trees, gravel site with grass, picnic table, friendly staff and nice store, pool. BUT side by side hookups means someone is "touchable" on your back side: too close for me. Very few mosquitoes now, but wouldn't want to be here later. Dogs barking and people walking through our site continuously didn't impress me either. Be aware that there is much construction at the Center St. exit and your GPS will mis-direct. Simply get off at #265 exit for Center St. in Provo and go south 2 miles to campground on right. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We made a reservation several months ahead to be certain to get a site when we arrived at the end of May. Upon our arrival we were assigned to a site which was very muddy and soggy with a huge puddle right where our entry door would be. The spring melt created much flooding and the park didn't seem to have adequate drainage. There were, though, quite a few sites which were dry and could be accessed. We asked to be moved to a different, dry site but were turned down. The reason stated for the refusal was that other campers were expected. However, it was stated that no sites are assigned until the actual moment of registration. Therefore, why were we told that all other locations were already taken? Since we'd made our request so much earlier, we couldn't understand why we would not be able to move to a dry spot. The women at the reservation desk were adamant about not being able to accommodate us and stated that our only option was to leave with a refund. I believe we would have enjoyed staying at this campground as it was highly written up as being a very pleasant stay. However, in lieu of the lack of hospitality, we decided to move to another location in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice quiet location with walking trails along the Provo River. There are a lot of trees in the park which is very nice. This place is hardly perfect though. Many of the sites flood in a rainstorm and do not dry out. We had to put concrete blocks from the door of the RV just to avoid going through 4" of water. The RV was completely surrounded by water. You could get to your car with the blocks, but could not access anything in the RV. The management seems completely unconcerned about this problem when you talk to them and makes no effort to put more stone down to raise the sites. This is a major problem and should be addressed at the park. To have your RV standing in this much water is very annoying and I expect some rust problems with the RV after we leave Lakeside behind. The next site over, which is close to us, has a dog that barks and wines all day. There was no response from the generally unfriendly staff at this campground regarding this problem. This park has excellent Wi-Fi, the best we have found anywhere. Overall, this a pretty park in a nice location, but the water problem is definitely something to be concerned about. Just make sure you find a relatively dry site unless you enjoy wading in 4" of water. Forget trying to access any of the hatches on your RV with the surrounding water. One of the questions above is do they have waterfront sites, we are certainly in one. There is a State Park right on Lake Utah just down the road, which might be a better option for a longer stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price was for electric and water (Good Sam's). We stayed here 2 years ago. Still a nice place with large sites with picnic tables and tall trees. Will stay here again when traveling through the next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park. We have stayed here before and would stay again if in the area. Plenty of room to maneuver. Pull throughs are long enough we did not have to unhook our 30ft travel trailer. Sites are fairly level. They are buddy sites - you will be close to a neighbor (if you have one) on your slideout side, but the patio side has more room with a picnic table. Restroom and showers are clean and nice. Laundry room is nice with 5 washers and dryers, $1.00 per load. Wi-fi worked well, and there were 36 cable TV channels. We were there the first week of May and only noticed a few mosquitoes. The pool and spa are only open Memorial Day through Labor Day. Mature landscaping with tall trees. Friendly office staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great park with friendly help. I would rate this higher if the WiFi was stronger. Was easy in and out with excellent pull through sites. It was very clean and well maintained. Plan on staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for more than a week and were sad to leave. The setting was beautiful with the leaves of the mature, well trimmed trees changing colors. The site was ample size and the park was very quiet. The park layout made maneuvering easy. We look forward to staying there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, nice people but I have never EVER seen so many mosquitos. It was a coordinated effort to get into the MH without allowing too many in at the same time. 6 out of 10 due to that, otherwise I'd give an 8. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park for an overnight. The WiFi worked well and the site was long enough so that we didn't have to unhook. Very quiet park. The buddy sites make for narrow sites, but enough room for our slides. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I gave this park a 8. The reasons: it's a beautiful park, and well maintained. The staff take a real interest in each camper and their needs. The office and store are well-stocked and very clean. We had something happen however that we've never run into before. We've taken many road trips with our two small dogs (not barkers). We've never had a problem with leaving our dogs in our RV with the air conditioner on, as we tour the area we're visiting or do our shopping. This park actually states in the pet rules that you need to take your pet with you whenever you leave the park. I was out of the park when I read this rule. I called immediately and asked if there would be some flexibility regarding this rule as we hadn't read it until we were in our car miles away. The man said it would be fine, and I left my phone number in case there was a problem. I just find it interesting that park owners expect campers to take their pets out and possibly leave them in a hot car while sight-seeing. The other problem we discovered was the thousands of mosquitoes that came out as soon as the weather cooled off. We could not leave our RV after 7:30 pm or so, due to these little critters. I realize that this park is very close to the lake and with all the foliage at the park it is normal to have some mosquitoes. We would camp here again, but probably not during the summer or early fall, due to the mosquitoes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park. They have a great pool and their campsites are just fine. Their internet got the slowest speed rating I have ever seen on Speedtest.net for an RV park. Our Verizon internet has an external antenna and is amplified. The Provo airport is across the street and jammed it almost completely. Late night check-in is epic. Had to stand in a swarm of 10,000 bugs to register. This is not an exaggeration. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is an average CG, nothing like the 10's that others have rated. The space we had had a lot of space on one side, none on the other. In fact it was one of those slots were one pulls in from one direction and the other from the opposite direction, so your slide on the driver side was almost touching theirs. Don't know where others found all their space who reviewed. The camp store was nice as was the pool and the staff was great. The park is tight for a 40' MH. It was also not that close to the interstate to make it a great place to get off and on if just passing through. There was a nice pasture across the entrance, with some really nice horses. I would not have a problem staying here again, but I bet you can find better in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have said this is a great park one of the best we have every stayed at. Yes, there are a number of permanent sites but well kept and you really could not tell. Employees very helpful and friendly. Park very well kept. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great site, cheap but nothing is compromised, has heated pool, shop and a great place to stay. Large spaces between sites. $29 full hookup with cable. Would go back again if in area We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice area. Park had a pool; about the only thing to do. Seemed like a lot of the spots had permanent residents. Not a very sociable community. But it was clean and had nice grassy areas at each site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here for an overnight twice before and as before, were very pleased. The comments stated, pretty much tell the story. Lots of residents here but that does not bother us for one night. They gave us an end pull through site, which was super as we just had nice grass on our patio side. Definitely would recommend it and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an excellent place to stay. Most of the spots have trees. The staff is friendly and courteous. There are treed places to hike and it is a quiet and restful place to stay. I would highly recommend staying here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park twice over the past three years. Both times we have been very satisfied with the overall park. There are a few pros and cons that we noted during our visits. Even though the park management sprays regularly, the bugs are bad, especially the mosquitoes. There are quite a few seasonal residents causing the usual eye-sore. The pads are dirt mixed with gravel. The pads are level with plenty of trees for shade. Large, easy access black top park roads, great Wi-Fi signal, friendly park workers, and the price was right. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a an old but well kept campground. My problem was with the free Wi-Fi which was painfully slow when it worked. Nothing is free. I'd rather pay a few bucks and get reliable and fast internet service. Other than the Wi-Fi, it was a good overnight park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites are spacious and easy to get into. They are grouped each 2 sites side by side, so if someone is parked next to you, it would be close on one side. Lots of tall trees and shade, with a walking trail along the river. Showers are nice with privacy, laundry very reasonable at $1.00 each to wash and dry. Nice swimming pool and a small play area for kids. Utah Lake State Park is a short walk down the road, and I-15 just 2 miles. Price is for full hook-ups, pull-through; it is cheaper for water/electric only, or tent sites. I would look forward to staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We chose this park because the other one in town got such awful reviews. This is a pretty park with lots of grass and big trees, plus it is out in the country so it is very quiet. However, the sites are extremely close together. Even though the park wasn't full, we were put right next to another rig. Why do parks do that? The park has an unkempt look and it just isn't a favorite. The owner was not very friendly when we got propane and acted like we were a bother. We would stay here again only because the choices are limited. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are a number of permanent residents here. While one can walk to the lake - and pay the park entrance fee - Lakeside is not BESIDE a lake. The "river walk" is on top of a berm built by the Corps of Engineers to hold back the lake during a past flood. The river is dirty and slow moving. I would think mosquitoes reign in the summer. For walkers and joggers, there is a nice walk along side to the left just before you enter the park. The best thing about Provo is Kneaders and The Chocolate. I'd keep on going to Salt Lake City otherwise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a campground which, unlike their name and website infers, is not on the side of Utah lake. Close (10 minute walk) but not on. The trees and flora are amazing (limits satellite reception for most) and for an older place, it could be charming. What really spoils this campground are the permanent residences in dilapidated trailers with personal possessions arrayed outside for all others to enjoy. They seemed have been placed together giving that section kind of a "skid row" feeling. Sorry to say, we probably will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A clean park with easy commute to Provo, Orem and surrounding towns. Sites are a bit close. My only issue is it rained quite a bit during the night and some sites flooded. The back of our site, where we parked the car had a large puddle of water. While I was in the office a fellow camper came in and said he needed another site since his rig was surrounded by water. The park is quiet at night. River walk goes along side and back of campground and is a wonderful place to walk dogs or yourself . The hosts are friendly and helpful. If we were to come this way again we would stay here, but I would inspect the site before setting up to make sure we were not in a site that has flood potential. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects the Good Sam discount. This place is excellent. It is located a few miles west of Interstate 15 in a rural area next to a river. There is a general aviation airport nearby and I think maybe a military training range also nearby because I saw a military helicopter fly over then the sound of automatic weapons fire shortly afterward. Fortunately it's quiet at night. This park has clean restrooms and a good laundry facility with 5 washing machines and dryers. It also has propane on-site which I wished I had purchased after running out later that night. It has a nice little riverside walk on the property. Be sure to ask about the new family of owls that have moved in. We are going to stop at this park again on our way back home. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This RV Park needs a lot of work. The electric box was falling down, the water connection was leaking and the grounds were unkempt. The showers were clean but they didn't have any hooks so you had no place to hang your clothes and towel. I phoned a week ahead and made reservations for a pull through site and we were put in a spot that was uneven, totally surrounded by other Rvers, very close together. A gentlemen came in behind me and said he didn't have a site reserved and we noticed he was in a nicer spot, lots of room and no other RV around him, so it doesn't pay to reserve. Unfortunately, there are no other RV Parks in this area so we're pretty much forced to stay here on our way home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good signage, tight check-in area. Strict dog rules, but overall pet friendly. Has paved roads, gravel sites, and is pretty close to level. Sites are VERY close together. Very little road noise, there's some noise from the local general aviation airport. Nice, central location, easy to get to metro Provo or Orem, but far enough away to be quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lots of trees and grass. Sites are a bit close together; ours was very close to level. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. High speed internet in the office and there is supposed to be WiFi in the park but I was unable to get any connection. Close to Provo airport but very little noise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park that we would definitely use again. There appeared to be several long-term residents but all sites were well kept and clean. Easy in and out with level sites and plenty of shade trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A great RV park. Provo is a quiet town but close to everything. The park is very shady and clean and staff was very helpful. A good location for visiting Park City, Sundance and the canyons. We spent a week there and would go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lots of shade trees. I got lucky and was in H7 which is "Satellite Friendly" but not many sites are. The Wi-Fi is useless Friday through Sunday when the park is full but mid week is marginal. It's your only alternative because 3G Broadband cards don't work out there and cell phone coverage is "1 Bar." You're pretty close to ponds and streams so mosquitoes would probably be a lot worse in warmer weather but they weren't too bad during September. It's a nice, well kept park if you don't need to be able to communicate via cell phone or Internet but that's a big requirement for me. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has paved roads and gravel sites with a table. Lots of trees, and grass between sites. The pull thru we had was 65 feet long, which was adequate to leave the toad attached. Side by side hook-ups are less than desirable. The numbers on the sites are hard to find from the road and you may be best to walk the road to be sure of your site. We didn't have a mosquito issue, I think that's more an early season problem. There is a nice walking trail along the adjacent Provo River (which is more like a slough here). The cable TV has 31 channels. Some sites are open enough to get satellite TV. Utilities worked fine. Wi-fi was generally very fast, better than Verizon air card. Pool was closed when we were here. Price is a weekly rate with taxes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a nice park close to Utah Lake State Park (walking distance). The interior roads were a little tight but do-able. The sites are side-by-side so you share your "yard" with the people next to you. It was wide enough but I can see where some people staying long term may not like this set up: we were just here for an overnight stop. We didn't notice the mosquito problem that others have commented on in the past. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an OK place for a stopover. We pulled in too late to get anything except water and electric. Those sites do not have cable. We were in the back of the park so Wi-Fi was a little weak. Sites were large and campground was well shaded. A number of permanent residents but everything was clean and maintained. Manager was a little grumpy and rules oriented. Given that, we were surprised when the Beverly Hillbillies pulled in next to us. Two people in a small class A motorhome, a pop-up, and two vehicles all jammed onto the site next to us. The pop-up was a storage vehicle so they didn't put it up. I am assuming that management didn't know they were doing this. If we don't have to be crammed in with that caravan again, we would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very cool and shady place to stay. The park is about 1/2 mile from Lake Utah State Park. Provo River runs on the north boundary of the RV park. Staff waters the grassy areas between the large sites daily. Some sites were a bit swampy. At sunset you had to stay indoors, the mosquitoes were as big as crows and very blood thirsty. There were some permanent resident trailers but the condition was fair to good. Nice staff. Near freeway I-15 but not too close to noise. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stopped here for a overnight with 2 families and discovered a lot of what has already been commented on. Notable good items from our experience: Friendly staff, good location, nice shade trees, good grass between sites, good (looks newly upgraded) power and cable TV. You can tell they make an effort to make the place a little homey with the various decor adorning the park. Notable negatives from our experience: The mosquitoes are bad, so bad you can't go for a walk or sit outside and relax which is a shame because it'd be a good place for both. You shouldn't be allowed to advertise wi-fi if it doesn't work. The sites are a challenge for those with toads. There's a small airport nearby so you see/hear aircraft periodically overhead. Also, as commented on previously there's a lot of permanent occupants there with extremely old and trashy motorhomes/trailers; if they'd clean up those eyesores we'd rate higher. Would consider for an overnight again no question but the mosquitoes are bad. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful trees all over the park. Mosquitoes are not a bother as long as you use spray to protect your selves. The management is friendly. Very quiet far away from the interstate. I got a good peaceful night's sleep every night we stayed there. The pool, bathroom, showers and laundry rooms were all clean! Recommends this place highly! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an old, trashy park. The spaces are side by side and very close together. It is woefully overpriced considering it's lack of ambience, poor roads, narrow spaces, and trashy RVs that look like they've been there since the Nixon administration. What made things worse were all the mosquitos and a power failure that left us without power for 4 hours. I would not stay here again and I would recommend to others to bypass any opportunity they may have to stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rating we have given is not a reflection on the campground itself but rather on the management of the campground. We found the facilities to be clean and reasonably well maintained. They indicate that they are "big rig friendly" however they have few sites that will accommodate a 40' motorhome only one of which could you leave the toad attached and still be able to maneuver in and out. Our stay was only one night on our way to Colorado for a 50th anniversary and we liked the campground enough to make a reservation for 1 night on our return trip. We elected to stay in Colorado 1 additional day to spend with family and called Lakeside more than 24 hours ahead to reschedule or cancel our reservation. They were unable to reschedule us and unwilling to cancel the reservation stating that they would charge us for the night anyway. Nothing on their web site or in their written literature indicates a no-cancellation policy in fact their web site indicates that 24 hour notice of cancellation will avoid penalties. We found that they did indeed charge us for the night on our credit card. We consider this a deceptive business practice and will never stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a very pleasant older park that has been well maintained. There are some long term residents, but in nice, well kept rigs. The large trees are lovely yet there are still plenty of sites with a good view for satellite TV. Cable TV was added to the sites on May 11th and was also being used to increase the bandwidth for the internet which was quite overloaded and did not work well for us. The owner plans to have the wifi upgraded by Memorial Day. The Sprint cell phone signal was highly variable. We called Sprint and were told a nearby airport was likely to blame. This might have also interfered with our wifi signal which was strong but could not carry the internet much of the time. There are lots of little extra touches make the park seem homey. All the facilities were very clean. We will likely keep using this park in the coming years as we have family in the area, but we will check the wifi first. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice older park. Check in was fast. It appears that there are a number of long-term residents but still looked good. A lot of large trees and grass. Sites really close together. Park is along a long bike path up Provo Canyon and close to Utah Lake. Could not get the Wi-Fi to work even when computer recognized their system. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice level sites. Easy to get in and out of. Office people very friendly. We just spent one night and didn't even unhook the RV. We didn't use the restrooms or laundry that was available. Would stay there again, easy access from Hwy. Pool was closed for the season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a lovely older park on the outskirts of Provo. The interior roads are a little narrow but we didn't have any trouble manuevering our 32' motorhome with a toad into our spot. Most of the sites have a lot of shade which we like. The office also features an old fashioned store and the staff is friendly. There are a lot of long term residents but everything is neat and tidy. Wi-Fi is excellent. The park is located about 2 miles west of I-15 in a quiet setting which is very nice. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park looks very small from the entrance - but the large sites are at the back. Long pull thru's, gravel, a lot of trees and cottonwood could be a problem if staying very long. Very nice park, easy access, not too far from the interstate. Would probably stay here again if in the area, but only for 1-2 nights. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paved steets, gravel level sites, flowerbeds, tables, mature trees (hard to get satellite), lots of extended stay but not junky, well-maintained, bathroom/showers clean but cramped,2 covered pavilions, river walk (river hardly moves), nice pool with covered area and loungers We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK for one night, but no more. This park is next to a stagnent river that breeds masses of mosquitos. Difficult to be outside. Cottonwood trees make a mess of RV, and back of Park has been turned into a ghetto by full time residents. (Furniture, tables, suitcases etc. stacked in front of trailers.) Nasty owner refused to let us move to another space. Porta Podies and dumpster at rear of park complete the scene. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used this park for an overnight stop, so we didn't have to go in to Salt Lake City at rush hour. It was clean and safe so we could go to town and re stock our trailer. Lots of trees and shade, pool looked nice but we didn't use it. We would stop again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice place. We would have rated it higher if they had cable television. Our site had so many trees that we couldn't get satellite reception and it would have been nice to be able to watch the news and weather while there. We were able to pick up a few channels with the antenna but the stations were very fuzzy and couldn't be watched. On the plus side, there were very nice grassy areas to sit on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was just checking out places we stayed in '08 and am astonished to see less than great comments about this park. We stayed here for 4 weeks. and loved it. The location is phenomenal for Salt Lake and Provo and there is plenty to do in both towns. Great to shopping too. The bike path that starts nearly at your campsite is very long and very beautiful as it winds its way along the river. You can't see Utah Lake from your RV but you can bike or walk to it and can swim from the nice beach. It is beautiful to look at. The wildlife is spectacular all around the area. Only drawback I can think of is that there is no sewer. However, I would go back in a heartbeat. Loved this place. In the spring and early summer it must be fabulous. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a good five day stay at the Lakeside RV Campground. Only two complaints. First because it is near the river and lake, there were a lot of mosquito's, mostly in the mornings and evenings. Second, the Wi-Fi would slow down to a crawl in the mornings and afternoon (4-6); not sure why because it was good the rest of the time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Older heavily treed park near lake and river. Narrow gravel and grass sites. Slides are literally only a few feet from the RV next to us. Truck parking is difficult. Friendly, helpful staff. Although we managed to get the satellite up, it might be difficult in most of the park. Their wifi is strong and fast. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Although it isn't on a lake, this park is near a lake and right next to the Provo River. It's a charming place with wonderful landscaping and lovely spots. We enjoyed walking along the bike path down by the river. The view of the mountains across the pasture land was exceptional. We'd definitely stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A large campground with large sites and plenty of shade trees. A large pet walk around the perimeter of the park. Over the air TV reception was good. The WiFi worked well. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicely shaded, fair-sized sites, and lots of large trees. Off the interstate and except for the airport noise, very quiet. Side-by-side hookups were OK, and the free WiFi was very strong. A busy place as it is a popular stopping place judging by all the rigs that came in and left the next day. Very well stocked store and professional staff. We enjoyed walking the trail along the river in back of the park. Some of the permanent residents need to be moved out or cleaned up; but these were generally located in the area not used for overnighters. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed for an overnight; lots of trees for shade and quite nice. Staff was very good. Seem to have lots of long term people for the lake use, but no issues at all. Would stay here again for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our third time for this campground. Very clean, quaint, plenty of room, a great "river walk" for you and your pet, friendly service, a worth while general store. In the Salt Lake City area, this one is the place to stay! Will be back next year for sure! Bring your insect repellent! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park with lots of shade, close to Utah Lake. Easy access for big rigs, great owners, helpful staff. Only complaints are bugs and mosquitos (not campground fault), large trees block satellite access in most sites, many permanent residents but this not detract from overall rating of park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an attractive park with grass and trees. But even with the trees, there were sites that were satellite friendly. The dog loved the grass and river walk but the river side sites were plagued by mosquitoes. When walking in the evening, we avoided the river. The park is mostly inhabited by permanents but it appeared that the management located the overnights in their own section. The sites were situated back to back resulting in very close proximity street side and a large shared front yard curb side. WiFi worked well and was free but no cable TV and off-air signals were weak and snowy. Staff were very helpful with finding a satellite friendly site and with sightseeing suggestions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This could be a beautiful campground. Very green and a nice play to walk the dogs. It would take some cleaning up and modernization. No cable TV and very few channels with amplified antenna. Too many full time residents for my liking. I felt like I was in a trailer park or some Jeff Foxworthy routine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall atmosphere was pleasant. Several miles from I-15, so there is no highway noise. We paid the weekly rate. Easy access to all the shops and great restaurants in Provo and surrounds. Good base for day trips into Wasatch Mountains. Utah Lake State Park is an easy walk down the street. The campground has lots of trees. We were able to use our satellite internet (tripod) by getting an end space near the road, though even this space was still tricky. Sites are very close together and all have side-by-side hookups. Don't count on having a lot of space. Had the park been full, we probably wouldn't have stayed here with our 37-foot fifth wheel. About 30% to 40% of the rigs are long-term, but it's not a problem as the park has strict rules against shabby appearances. Not our favorite kind of park, but would stay here again the off season. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I have to disagree, with the past reviews. Basically this is a trailer park, full of permanents, with some old trailers. With some overnight lots scattered around, and at one end of the Park. Could not get Satellite due to the large trees. The best thing was the free hi speed modem hookup. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly people. The owner provided me with a step up to my 5th wheel as the ground was muddy. Lots to see, walking area at Utah Lake and bike/running path nearby. We have camped here many times and always return if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice, shady place! The staff was great. Pool is great for the kids! Close to restaurants and shopping without feeling close to a city. Restrooms and showers were very clean! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Lots of shade and easy to access pull throughs. Grassy sites with tables. Nice pool. Very knowledgable staff about surrounding town and places to eat and shop. River walk on perimeter of park was nice. We stayed here twice, on our way up and on our way home. Ask them how to find "Goodwoods" for great BBQ food in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice family oriented park. Our grandson made quick friends and had a blast in the playground and pool. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
We only spent one night here, but the park appeared to be well maintained and was clean. The river is just across the walking trail that runs around the park, so there are no really waterfront sites. The owners/managers were very friendly. There is lots of grass and the sites were fairly large with plenty of shade. We camped here in a camper.
This is an older park but in a nice setting with trees, adjacent to a small stream, and next to a big playing field. After-hours check-in went smoothly. Bathroom was old with plywood walls but was clean and roomy. A few TV channels available by antenna. Several free Wi-Fi connections available but it was somewhat difficult to connect to. Park was too small for good dog walk so we used the adjacent playing field. Swimming pool was being worked on. All in all, a pleasant little oasis in an urban mess so I would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Every conceivable construction was underway on I-15 and surrounding areas, and we still made it to the RV park okay with the directions provided. Check in was easy and the staff attempted everything to get me an additional night. Sites are pea gravel and sand and are quite level. Bathrooms and showers were clean and will be newly constructed next year. I recommend going to Bridal Falls and Timpanogos National Monument (Caves). Both are a short drive (20-30 min) from the park. I would stay here again: after construction ceases. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our stay here. The present owners have owned the park about a year. They are making some major improvements. Rebuilding the "satellite " restroom and shower, re-doing the pool and many other things. This is an older park so some of the roads are tight. Our spot was perfectly level. Gravel sites, paved roads. Showers old but very clean. More than helpful at the front desk. The river is "right there", but it is only about six or seven feet across as they take most of the water to northern Utah and Southern Salt Lake Counties for their use. It is nice little park and it is getting better. We were here for three nights and would have readily stayed longer, but we had to get moving. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Under new management, they are working to fix some broken/closed functions (laundry, pool, toilets in back section, etc.). There was no price break on the rate while work goes on. This is a plain KOA with lots of trees and narrow un-level sites. No picnic tables that we could see in our section. Since our site was very narrow I don’t know where they would put one anyway. During the week, the office is open 8-10am and 5-7pm so plan arrivals accordingly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great overnight KOA. Easy on, easy off (construction no longer a problem). Very friendly owners/managers. Long level (60+ ft) pull-thru site with all the hook-ups. Wi-fi worked well. Would definitely stay here again when passing thru. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is really a nice little campground, and I emphasize little. Even though there was a large diesel pusher parked near us I would not want to get a large rig through there. We only have a 25 ft fiver. A tree blocked us from opening the awning and sites are pretty close together. About 10 or 15 permanent residents, but, they were quiet and nice. River was very pleasant. Convenient for travel through the area. The lady at the desk was very nice and store had necessities. We will stay there again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Didn't like this campground. Some full time residents, can hear the trains and freeway. Kind of run down. If you have a big rig, the sites are real close together. Under new management and they say they have a lot of new upgrades coming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only good thing about this park is the enthusiasm & politeness of the new owners and employees, but they have a seemingly impossible task on their hands to get this park in shape. The sights are so narrow there's barely enough room to walk between rigs with the slideouts out. Even low conversations can be heard from your neighbors. Some freeway/train noise. WiFi is nearly non-existent. No cable, but we were able to pick up a few channels with the antenna. It is close to a paved bike/walk/jog path, and a beautiful park--when no one's there, we let the dog run free. Lot's of "cotton" from the cottonwood trees, so take your allergy pills. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on our first trip out with our travel trailer. First problem was that the sites are VERY small. You can whisper and your neighbor will hear you. There is no room to put your awning out. There are also an abundance of ducks. The camp store is only open limited hours and has very limited supplies. There are no fire pits. The pool is located in the "attached" trailer park and looked pretty nasty. There is a walking trail that has an entrance from the park but this also means the park isn't completely secure from passerby's. The back half of the small park is permanent residents and is a little scary. This is by far the worst KOA we have ever stayed at. The only reason I rated it a 2 was because I heard it just got new owners and I feel it has the potential to improve. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground accepted our request for a 3-night stay after we had been evicted from a different park. The KOA graciously took us in and gave us a dry, clean site with all the needed facilities we requested. The park manager personally directed us to their last available site and made certain we were comfortable. We recommend this site to anyone who needs a hospitable, welcoming park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first KOA experience, and we weren't impressed. Not a good value for the money. We got in after hours and selected one of the "Pull-thru" sites. Access to the site was by a very narrow gravel road occupied by a lot of sleeping ducks. We had to get out and chase them away. When we got to the site, we weren't able to pull in due to low overhanging tree limbs. We went around the loop and ended up backing in. Barely enough room for the 5er and our truck. Probably wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here as a quick overnight stopover. The campground is like no other KOA we've been to (no warm welcome or help with checking in, no activities or pool within view, LOTS of ducks hanging out near the office, kind of a dark 'foreboding' atmosphere). The owners were not present when we arrived at 6:00 pm, and the office is only open a couple of hours in the morning, and again in the afternoon. We 'guestimated' the cost and left a check in the self-registration slot in the office door. A campground resident was kind enough to drive my husband around the grounds to find a spot. Although relatively clean and comfortable, it definitely had the feel of a park for mostly permanent residents. We did feel safe. We did not hear any planes or trains and, this time of year, we were pretty bug-free. We do not plan to camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I'd say the other reviews are pretty spot on accurate. Very bad fly and mosquito problem as well. Near airport so you will hear the planes spooling up for take-off. Tall trees, forget your satellite dish from working. Seems this park caters mostly to monthly rate residents. Kind of bizarre grounds and employees, but OK for a layover pull-through 50 AMP spot if you're in route someplace. Definitely not a destination park or for traveling single women unless you like the Stephen King novel kind of atmosphere. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is a nice campsite with good hookups which serves as a mid-way point on a trip to Yellowstone. The campground was packed fairly full and the tent campers next to the RVs tend to get up early. The management left instructions taped to the door for a 8:45pm arrival. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is part of a permanent mobile home park. The pool and laundry facilities are shared with the mobile home park. At least 10 of the sites have permanent residents that have converted their trailers into mobile homes. The attendants did not escort or help you park in the extremely tight spots. The attendants never left the office unless they were out to smoke. One attendant had his KOA shirt unbuttoned to his navel with his chest exposed. It was definitely not like any other KOA I have experienced. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This has to be the oldest and worst KOA RV Park. I am amazed that it is still sanctioned by the KOA home office and system. The entrance to this park is quick, narrow, and not RV friendly. We arrived at 3PM and the office was closed. See us at 4PM. There was the usual instructions and map to select your own site, etc. We wanted an electric only site for our 29 foot Class A which was hard to find as many of the electric boxes had no plug in connectors. All were very short or had overlapping trees. How often have you had to go from site to site with a digital voltmeter trying to find a place to camp? We finally found one but had to raise the front end 5 inches to get level. I could get connected with the park’s wi-fi but did not have the code word. Some one opened the office at 4PM, but they were fill ins for the owners who were at the football game. They fed the ducks that dirtied the entrance and took our money. Later, after spending an hour trying to get connected I ask about the wi-fi. Their answer was to bring your box down to the office and try it. We are less than 40 yards from the front office. While I write this we see several big rigs, towing, come in and are lucky to find a way to turn and exit. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Other comments were pretty accurate. Bathrooms were OK. I had a site right next to the office so my Wi-Fi was good. I was able to pick up Dish satellites OK through the trees. River right next to the park so tons of ducks that folks feed. A 9 mile hiking trail called Provo River Trail right next to park so good to exercise but don't do it at night since it is not the best of the neighborhoods in Provo. Stayed for one night. They did give me a 10% discount without a KOA card. They were actually priced in line with other CG's in the area. 5 minutes from I-15. I would go there again for an over nighter. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I am a big KOA fan but this was not a fun place. The park is long and narrow, with gravel sites. What I did not like was the units were jammed together so there was little space between units. We stayed over night but once was enough. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here without reservations and were put in a space in front of the office, very near the main road. Noise was not really a problem, though. We took a ride through the rear of the park and did see a lot of permanent trailers - some in poor condition. We saw a pool, but did not use it. There was a small park for children next door within walking distance. Internet access was available but we had to sit on a picnic table outside the office to access it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nicely treed park. It is a little challenging with a big rig (we had to unhook the toad) but doable. The dog walking was limited, but just south of the campground is a nice park so it wasn't an issue. There is a camp store, but when I was there it wasn't well stocked. We would look for a different park that would accommodate our rig better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is between two small streams with mature trees, very relaxing after a day on the road. It is close to the railroad so use your earplugs at night. A good place to stay if passing through. there are only a couple of fast food places nearby. Very pleasant grounds overall but our site was littered with butts from the previous guest. The pool was closed for the season. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We decided to stay here as it was just off I-15 on our way between Yellowstone and Grand Canyon. The stream that ran behind our popup was populated with many ducks and geese, which came waddling thru the campsite many times per day, leaving behind many feathers and droppings. When you went to the bathrooms and showers, you had to avoid the droppings all along the way. We were given a spot next to a small trailer that had a blue tarp over it and looked like it hadn't been occupied in many weeks. (Covered with cobwebs) The pool was located in an area that looked to be shared by the adjoining trailer park, as was the laundry facility. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
For being in a city, it certainly has a nice "hidden" feeling to it. Lots of trees. Right next to the Provo river. The site we were at was not level, but the other sites looked ok. Lots of ducks keep the guests company during the day. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Best parts were the scenery and the showers (hot and powerful). Spaces were spread out well. Excellent options for walking: there is the jetty around the lake, the nature trail (short and a bit scary) along the river inside the park boundaries, and the trail along the river just outside the park with horses that goes for miles. A couple of downsides for me were that there was lots of litter and a couple of times there were people idling their vehicles in front of the bath house. Once the truck was there for at least 30 min. The second time it was the guy cleaning the ladies room. And, yes, the bugs were bad. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had a pull-through site with water and electric. Blacktop sites and roads. Nice big sites picnic tables with canopies. Nice views of the lake and some mountains. The lake is pretty big. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We shared a two-site space with family. There was more than enough room for both vehicles - a 40' motorhome and a pickup/camper. As others have noted, be prepared for the bugs. Our screened-in bug tent fit right under the site's picnic table canopy allowing us to sit outside during the day and evening and enjoy our meals - bugless! Campground host (a full-time RVer like us) was very friendly and stopped by to notify us of problems and fixes with the water system. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have mentioned, the bugs here can be pretty intense. We enjoyed our stay here. The sites are well spaced, and it was very quiet during the week. Lots of opportunities for boating and water activities. Our Verizon MiFi has worked well here. The scenery in this campground is outstanding with the lake and mountains. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were inundated by a variety of large winged bugs on our overnight stay. Perhaps the nearness of the lake is what causes this. Staff at gate was friendly as was camp host just across from our site. Showers needed a thorough cleaning and small trash pick up. Only a few sites have tree shade (and only in the afternoon)although every site has a picnic table under a ramada. Appears to be mainly geared for folks enjoying the water sports on the lake. We would be hard pressed to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice State Park with paved roads and sites. Most sites are long enough for big RV's. We had a spot on the lake, which was nice. It is close to the city, but with very little noise. Great place to relax for a few days. No problem with services and the dump is easy to get to when you leave. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was an okay stop for a couple nights, but it seems like budget cuts may have taken their toll on this park. Trash dumpster was left to overflow for two days. Ranger presence was very limited. Mosquitos were a problem which is to be expected this close to a shallow lake. Not everything was negative. All sites were well spaced with plenty of privacy and all utilities worked well. No cable or Wi-Fi was available but we had plenty of on air TV channels. We may or may not stay here again on future visits. It depends on the season and what other options are available. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are well spaced. No shade. When we were here, there were very few sites taken. There was no grass but lots of cut weeds. Toilet was fairly clean but could have been better. We had expected to be able to see the lake and had expected lots of grass. Wrong. High water plants blocked an view of the water. We were going to stay 4 days but stayed 2 as we had prepaid. Would only stay here again if we could not get in any place else. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are big and easy to get into. Lots to do in the park. There is construction on Route 15 right now though so you might want to check with the park about how to get there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in site A10. Cons: this site had a covered picnic area but the way the sun hit, there was absolutely no shade from noon til sundown. It's a bit of a hike to get to the beach. The worst part are the bugs. Even if there was shade in the afternoon and evening, the bugs make staying outside impossible. Pros: easy pull through, semi private, price per night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was disappointed that the lake only had a small 'beach' area - the rest is rocks and the park is adjacent to the boat ramps. Quiet at night and the ranger presence was always there, although no-one ever checked us in or asked for our permit. Office was always closed. Very convenient to Provo - just a few miles down the road. As is usual for a state park - no sewer hookups but one is conveniently located at the entrance to the RV area. Was here 4 days which was probably just perfect. The dogs loved exploring the park area We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, large, paved lots - typical of a state campground. 30 amp breaker tripped early several times when the hot sun was on the power pedestal. Showers in loop A only. Showers have no temp control. Was scalding hot one day, but OK the next. Loop B men room lights were out of service. Front gate was not manned during all hours - suspect they may be understaffed. Beach was not bad, but more litter than you would expect in a State park. Nice park, but could use some TLC. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small campground on shore of Utah Lake outside of Provo. Extremely quiet with good spacing between sites. Good place for big rigs. Showers were not particularly in good shape. Would stay here again. Satellite and TV reception was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice "warm up" weekend site. Good in spring and fall, a bit hot in summer. Fair bit of boat launch traffic and in warmer weather day use traffic. Close to town for those last minute items. Clean, open, affordable We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overnight stay, mosquitoes were waiting. Lake is above normal levels with some camp sites breeding ground for the pests along with an odor. Moved sites to the only one with afternoon shade b08. Hosts were helpful. Showers only at loop a. Mosquitoes waiting in restroom too. Lakeside campground seemed to have more shade than here. Did not plan on fishing as it was an overnight on way to idaho and yellowstone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice little state park campground with large sites. There are paved pads with a covered picnic area. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. However, there is currently a HUGE mosquito problem. Don't camp here without DEET repellent and even then you will still get bit. We camped here for four nights and are all itching. The beach area is currently flooded and inaccessible. If you don't have a boat there isn't much to do. Very nice flat biking area though. However, bring flat repair stuff because there are little thorns around that can cause havoc on your tires. Over all a fun trip but wish the mosquito swarms weren't there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It is a nice State Park with a small roofed area for outdoor eating at each site. The roof antenna pulled in several local tv stations. The evenings are cool near the water on very hot days. It needs more trees for shade and privacy at each site. I would stay again if passing through the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This state park is located about four miles from the freeway. We stayed in Loop B. Each site has a picnic table and metal shade awning. The pull throughs were all too short for our 32 foot fifth wheel. The back-in spots varied in length and width but you should be able to find a spot that could accommodate almost any size RV. The sites and roads were paved. The single-loop road was a bit narrow but do-able. We stayed here mid-week and there were only about 12 sites being used in both loops. Therefore electric was good but I can’t say how it would be when the park was filled. There are only two showers for the entire park which is not enough if it were filled. They were clean but lacked ventilation. Verizon air card and phone worked well here on Broadband access. There was no camp host on duty. The park was OK but it seemed to be a little rundown. With no camp host present, there appeared to be lack of maintenance during our stay. There is no day-use fee like some states charge in addition to the camping fee. The midge bugs were out in force during our stay. Bring repellent. We might stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here during a weekday and had no reservations. Park was about 1/3 full, but you would probably need reservations on a weekend during the summer months. Park has little shade. A number of sites would accommodate larger rigs. Roads and pads are asphalt with covered picnic table. Easy access to the park from I-15. A good place for spending a night or two while in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Average state park, right along the marsh bordering (freshwater) Utah Lake. No beach or lakefront access, but park has large marina and boat launches in another area. Can be very windy. Near an airport, but far enough away that light air traffic won’t bother you. Widely-spaced paved sites with all paved roads. No sewer connections, use dump station on your way out. No shade trees at all. Nice paved picnic area at each site, with table, BBQ, and large steel canopy to keep the rain/sun off. Acceptable bathrooms and showers, but only one per 30-site loop. Bath building in B loop not open May 2010, but supposed to be open by June. No Wi-Fi, phone or cable. Save the Internet reservation fees during the winter months and for weekday stays in April and May. We stayed Sunday and Monday nights, and the camp was only 10 percent full. April and May weekends are another matter, the campground host says, with the camp about 80 percent full. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Widely spaced sites with no trees, but each site has a covered picnic table. Roads and pads are asphalt and are long enough for larger rigs. We had no problem with our 38' MH and toad. Restrooms and showers were clean, maybe the previous poster was just there on a bad day, or Utah State Parks read their review. The Park host was quite friendly and was around to collect, saving us from going back out to the entrance to deposit our envelope and payment. Allow washing of your RV, which needed done when a wind storm blew through. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The camp sites are good, large, widely spaced. Broadband internet and satellite TV were great here. But we have used pit toilets that were cleaner. Two days into our stay, the restrooms were power washed, but they were so dirty to begin with, that didn't help a lot. They didn't even empty the trash in one after they washed it. The showers were OK after the power wash. There was a lot of litter that had not been picked up. This makes us leery of going to another Utah State Park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice state park with wide spacing between sites that are paved and flat. Covered picnic table was a plus. Antenna pulled-in local channels. Park is close to all the stores. It was very quiet when we were here and only about 30% occupied. Great spot to walk or ride a bike. We spent an extra night just to relax. Spent 3 nights. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Adequate spacing and flat sites. Quiet except for a very occasional plane from the nearby small airport. If there is a nature trail for the birds, we were not able to find it - not well marked. Lots of mosquitoes! We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is the place to stay if you are in the area for 2-3 nights. The price is right and it is quiet. There were maybe 2-3 other campers the whole time we were there. Mosquitoes are bad at night so close up early but the days are fine. Spots have 30 amp service and water there was a dump station on the way out. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice State Park covieniently located just off I-15. It was a quick stop for us while traveling north but they have a very nice marina and other facilities for boaters. We will stay again next time through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great base for exploring Utah, and conveniently located off I-15. There's not a lot of shade trees, but each site comes with a covered patio. the views of the mountains are excellent and the small marina is within the park. There's a very nice bike trail that goes clear to town. Quiet except for the small aircraft training facility adjacent to the park. You'll here those during the daytime. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very good state park and is convenient to the freeway and Provo. The sites are very adequate. We used a pull through with our 38 ft MH and tow. The campground filled after 5:00 PM. It was quiet except for the birds and frogs which we really enjoyed. We used it for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice park to stop for a couple of nights. All sites have fire pits. Bring your own wood. Hookups very easy. There is a dump station by the entrance. Most sites would be a tight squeeze for 40 foot or larger. A very quiet campground with strong Verizon cell phone signal. Camping World, Cabelas and Harley store are just up the interstate a few miles. Our gps did not like this location for some reason. It lead us on a wild goose chase to find a Cracker Barrel. The Camp Host was very helpful and an asset to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super convenient at only 5 miles off of I-15, Utah Lake State park is a terrific value for an overnight stop or even a stay over. There are 55 RV sites, mostly pull through and limited to 40' RVs. The park features a large marina along the 96,000 acre lake which is known to be a pretty good spot for catfish and other fish. For us it has always been about the convenience since Provo makes a handy stopping point when traversing Utah from top to bottom, or vice versa. Nice to pull in and refresh before or after facing the notorious Salt Lake City freeway traffic. Sites are level, have a small shelter and easy access to hookups. Plenty of room to walk about, visit the marina and stretch the legs. A bit of noise from the adjacent Provo airport but it's not that busy an airport so no big deal. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice State Park with beautiful views of the mountains. Sites were level and roomy. There were no extra amenities, but for the price, it was a nice place to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
