“Great but has some issues”

Overall Rating

We would love to give this a higher review, but the campground has some flaws that prevent that. Let's start with the PROs list....

As ususal, military facilities (FamCamps) are great places to stay. They are usually smaller than standard RV parks, which mean less people. They are ALWAYS clean, the people are friendlier and quieter, and the military community has a family feel amongst all who pass through. The added bonus is that you have full use of the base facilities as well, including a commissary, exchange, gym, parks, etc.

This particular campground is really nice. They have their own dog park, as well as a larger one on base. They have a really nice rec. room with movies, books, comfy leather chairs, free wifi, and office space to work semi-privately. There is a small laundry room with 4 washers and 4 dryers and a free ice machine. The camp hosts are EXTREMELY nice and helpful and keep the facilities immaculate. There is a large park next door, with a kids splash area, covered picnic benches, and plenty of room to have your own football game. There are walking paths that lead to duck ponds, trees and grass every where, sidewalks along all the streets, and several gas stations, fast food places, and banking facilities on base. It is typical of what you would expect from an Air Force Base.

The Cons.....

FamCamp, like most RV parks, is located right next to a major road. The road is busy most of the day, and doesn't really quit down until after 10pm. It's bearable, but a bit annoying at times. Also, Hill AFB is home to the new F-35 fighter jets, which are cool to see and watch, but after the first day or two get extremely annoying with their flying (because the are SOOOO loud). If you can get past the noise (which we learned to ignore) the biggest CON here is the RV sites. Although you are on level asphalt and have full hookups, what should be one large pull through site is actually two sites, butt to butt. Not only do you have a neighbor at your rear end, the space between sites is fairly small, so you feel like 4 RVs are parked in one RV location. (Hope you like your neighbors). The water and electric hook ups are also located in odd locations, in relativity as to how they have you park. Make sure you have at least 30-40 feet of water hose, sewer hose, and power cords.

There are a few sites, along the back road next to the track, which are single pull through sites. If you can reserve these, you would have a much better experience. They have plenty of overflow area, so if you don't make reservations, you will at least have a place to dry camp until something becomes available. Overall, we really enjoyed Hill AFB and the surrounding areas of Salt Lake City (plenty of things to do here). We would stay again, but would definitely reserver a back row site.
