Campground review

Our first stop on our trip, other than a truck stop/ rest area, was Crystal Hot Springs rv park in Honeyville Utah. We chose the site for its proximity to Gold Spike National Historic Site; 32 miles.

I think there may be something closer but I like this park .

1) the price 25$ per night for full hookups – sewer/water/electric
2) There is wifi but only near the office, not in the campground area.

The rv section of the park has about 80 sites, all back in. some have larger trees for shade, but overall its nice.
There is an older swing set for kids to play. Nearby a shower/bath room. The woman’s shower was clean but older. There are 2 stalls and 3 showers. One of the showers is missing a shower curtain. I did not use the shower so can’t say about the water pressure etc.

There is a large tent area and many tent sites on the perimeter. The park also has several hot spring fed pools. One very large Olympic size that is shallow all the way across the maximum depth I think was 5 ft.

Thee are 2 Jacuzzi type pools, a small kiddie pool depth I think about 2 ½ ft. and another soaking type pool depth of about 4 feet, with waterfall features.

A big attraction for the kids are the 2 water slides. They are 365 ft long hydro tube twisty slides. Very fun.

All the pools are heated by the natural hot springs in the area and they claim the highest mineral content found in any hot spring in USA.

The swimming/ slides are an extra charge from the camping, though they do give campers a small discount when asked. Swimming only= 6$ swim and slide 10$. Pools stay open until 10pm during summer.

On the perimeter of the park is a small pond with a few ducks. At the back edge runs the train tracks and the trains rumble through periodically blowing their horns. This could be at 2a.am or 4 pm,

We were here over the Fathers day weekend. We arrived on Wed. and by Friday night the park was full- Lots of group tents camping, Families in rvs for the weekend, Sunday afternoon many had left, by Monday morning the place is pretty empty.

Overall the employees were all pleasant and we liked this park.
