Campground Review - Utah State Park

We love camping in State Parks and National Parks when we can. The only downside is there usually are no dumps at your site, but this can be worked around for a few days! We stayed at Utah Lake State Park for three nights!

Nearby attractions - 7- Very close to Provo and less than an hour to downtown SLC.

Staff - 7 - Talked to campground host once. Nice older gentleman.

Natural surroundings - 10 - Right on Lake Utah, the largest fresh water lake in Utah. Lots of trees around. We camped right next to a marsh. Not many bugs this time of the year, but there might be more in warmer months. We saw tons of birds including pheasant, killdeer, amazing magp

ies, yellow-headed blackbirds, coots, herons, geese, grebes, ducks, California quail, robins and other songbirds. The sounds from the marsh were a symphony of calls and cackles. Check out the video below to hear some of the calls of nature.

Value - 9 - We paid $20 a night for partial hook-ups, water and electric, pull-through site.

Bathrooms - 7 - New and clean but out of TP a few times. Showers were hot but tight for changing and made for folks under 5'7"

Roominess - 9 - You really can't compare RV Parks with State Parks. State Parks are generally so much roomier.

Facility fun - 8 - Small playground, beach, boat rentals, fishing.

Cleanliness - 9 - State Park clean.

Facility usefulness - 7 - Dump, picnic table with shelter, grill and fire pit at each site.

Overall - 9 - We really enjoyed our stay here. Really nicer than an RV Park.
