About Salt Lake City

salt-lake-city, UT

Some of the campgrounds surrounding Salt Lake City are so cozy and luxurious, they border the comforts of "glamping." The Pony Express RV Resort, for example, offers a pool, a game room, and a clubhouse, as well as all of your usual amenities. East Canyon Resort offers similar luxuries. However, for campers looking for a more rustic experience with fewer amenities and more scenery, Salt Lake City has you covered. Though Spruces Campground is only 10 miles from downtown Salt Lake City, once you arrive you’ll feel like you’re in another world. With an elevation of 7,500 feet, the views are stunning no matter the time of year. This campground has something for all campers, whether you're a hiker, mountain biker, a climber or a fisherman.

For a truly rustic experience, try visiting the underrated Stansbury Island. Though it is actually connected on one side, it’s considered the second largest island in the Great Salt Lake. Stansbury Island offers colorful views of the sky at dawn and dusk, reflected on the mirror-like surface of the lake. Even though the island does not have any official campgrounds, camping is allowed nearly everywhere, so be sure to spend a night there to truly be immersed in the beauty and fresh air of this island. 

Once you’ve satisfied your adventurous side, it’s time to get your fill of the city. The city is best known for Temple Square. Here, you can get tours of the extravagant Salt Lake Temple, numerous museums and performing arts theaters, festivals and some live music. Liberty Park is also very popular; make sure to carve out some time to visit this 80-acre park which houses attractions such as an aviary, a greenhouse, and gorgeous, winding pathways. Salt lake City isn't known for camping because it's a bustling metropolis, but it is a great spot for your next outdoor adventure, but also has excellent historical and cultural attractions.
