Very nice staff, but this park was really bad. Couldn’t wait to leave. The sites are so crammed together you barely have room for your tow vehicle with your slides out. Small, 8x8 patch of dirt with a picnic area is the only outdoor space. Right up against the utilities and sewer of the neighboring spot. 90% of the lawn areas are dead. Avoid this place!

We came to this park twice, two weeks apart. It’s clean, has an excellent and friendly staff, and it was easy for local family to pop in and see us. The second trip through the office/store, pool and clubhouse were open. We definitely recommend it!

Best park and STAFF ever! We booked a two day stay just passing through and my husband got sick and was hospitalized. They all went above and beyond for me while he was in the hospital , made room for me to stay as long as needed, moved my 40 foot rig for me ,because I can’t drive it ,and showed me how to operate everything while he was in the hospital. They were just amazing! I can’t thank them all enough for everything!

Let me just tell you that I rarely ever take the time to write reviews because I have a full time job and juggle two additional part time jobs, thus, I pretty much never write a lengthy review for anyone or anything, but I had to take the time to laud Pony Express RV Park, its manager Ruben Zak, and his wonderful team. Even my kids, after a 3 week long road trip to 5 different national parks and a plethora of venues visited and outdoor activities experienced, listed their experience at Pony Express as their #1 best memory. Why am I writing such a rave review for an RV park? First of all, the entire staff is the friendliest, kindest, and most compassionate staff we have ever encountered at any form of lodging (RV resort, campground, hotel, inn, etc.) out of all of our travels. Before we even arrived, we had to adjust our schedule due to some hiccups in our plans and (simply over the phone) the staff did their best to accommodate us. When we arrived, the receptionists were very smiley, friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The entire park looked well kept, clean (especially the restrooms and showers compared to other RV parks), and well-run. No matter where you are placed, you are always within reasonable distance to a restroom/shower building. The pool area is clean; the tables, umbrellas, and chairs are all kept in good condition; the laundry room is literally the best we've ever seen (the best kept machines, the cleanest room, the most surfaces to fold clothes, has a coin machine that is well stocked, and has a detergent/dryer sheet machine for the users that forget to bring their own). The pool and laundry room are immediately next to several indoor bathrooms and showers and are very roomy and well-kept. The clubhouse has a really nice pool table and foosball table, plenty of comfortable seating, a big screen TV, books, games, puzzles, and a really nice common kitchen area for guests to use. They even have a great outdoor playground for the kids. Up to this point alone, we would have enthusiastically given Pony Express 5 stars. It was easily the best kept resort we have ever been to. The few reviewers that complained about the proximity of the RV sites to each neighbor need to understand that this is an RV resort in Salt Lake CITY, so the layout is meant to be maximized. That being said, the sites are NOT that crammed together as some reviews might give the impression about, and they are well maintained. THEN, we were juggling with some serious RV issues, and not only did Ruben have his staff help us out with no strings attached, but he went above and beyond to help us with alternative lodging that was amazing as we dealt with our misfortunes. We are very sensitive to imposing on other people and really try not to be an inconvenience to anyone, but the ENTIRE STAFF went out of their way to make us feel cared for. To emphasize this point, we got to know so many of them and are now blessed to call them friends. Shout out to Ruben, Christine, Ric, Suzie, Patricia, Barry, Jen, Emily, and Jimbo for your grace and kindness. To the rest of the staff that we did not have the pleasure to get to know personally, thank you for making this RV resort an awesome place to stay! Now, on top of this, if you are traveling and simply need lodging, not an RV site, their sports cabins are REALLY NICE! They have two bedrooms, a bathroom, a full kitchen, and a living room with great central AC . . . all for a VERY reasonable price. I cannot praise this place enough and I know our family will always remember our stay there. Please, do yourself a favor and take some time to stay here if you are passing anywhere through Salt Lake City. I sincerely believe you will have a GREAT time here however long your stay. We even met several long-term guests on site (we're talking many months up to a couple of years), and ALL of them were very happy with their time at Pony Express RV Park. YOU WILL BE, TOO!

I am tired of parks, especially those claiming to be resorts, to advertise wifi when they KNOW its not true. We have tried from 6:30 am to 11 pm for five dsys with no luck. The office wants you to "just forget the network and try to sign on again." I have reviewed hundreds of parks across the US and am tired of false claims. This park does not deserve s good review from me if they aren't willing to be honest about the amenities they claim to have and charge me for.

I like this park: it's clean and friendly, and the amenities are good, but it's really close to the freeway, and so it can be noisy, depending on your rv (not sure if the cabins are noisy). On our last visit (March 2019) it wasn't too crowded, but this time i saw how crowded it was. You are sandwiched in together! But people are basically nice and we enjoyed our neighbors. I would give it more stars, but it's not the owner's fault, it's the location.

The park is next to the freeway so easy access but noisy. It's in an area with very little around and the dust from the mountain quarry was thick the day we arrived. Expensive laundry, many permanent tenants but the biggest drawback was the showers. Hooks were next to the door - over 10 ft away from the shower, holes and tears in the walls, no where but the plastic shower seat which has had who knows backside sitting on it, to set things on. The staff was friendly though and gave us a nice little sanitation bag upon arrival.

Gated, quiet but packed, and office accomodating. Gated park with nice trail walk on paved path near Jordan River. Because of being so crowded people were not picking up after their dogs especially in large dog area. Laundry (expensive $2.00 per load wash or dry), showers clean, but WiFi horribly slow.

I should've looked harder for someplace else to stay. A very last minute trip but probably could've gotten into the KOA down the road (some people we talked with at the Aviary (awesome) said they only booked a month ago. Freeway noise, no place to sit outside the trailer except a patch of grass. It was quiet enough at night but was like camping in a parking lot. Sorry we had to stay for three days.
