After spending a good long time in beautiful Wyoming, after Labor Day, Pearl finally took us to a new state (for her): Utah! We had made reservations a couple of days ahead of time at Holiday Hills RV Park, solely so that we could ride the historic Union Pacific Rail Trail, and we're so glad we did. It was amazing!
But first, a little about the park. It was actually behind a motel in the small town of Coalville and nicer than I expected. The park offers full hookup sites for $29.10 per night with the Good Sam discount. We took advantage of their inexpensive laundry facilities, which at $1.25 for a wash and $1.00 for a dry were a great deal. They only have two of each machine, but the washers were huge!.
The park is right off the interstate for easy in and out, but there was some road noise, which is really our only "ding" on this park. There's a small convenience store where we checked in, and the town of Coalville and the rail trail are only about 1/4 mile away, on the other side of the interstate.
Someone does need Spellcheck, though!
All the sites are pull-through but are basically just parking places alongside the road, We got lucky, as some sites had full sun and very small grassy areas alongside. Our site was nicely shaded and backed up to a beautiful grassy "back yard" right along Holiday Creek. With plenty of shade trees and cows in the field behind, it was serene and peaceful, just the type of rural setting that we love.
Here's the view from our site.
There were lots of birds around, especially the Magpies that are so common in this part of the country (but still a bit exotic to us). And this massive platform nest, which might be an Osprey nest. There is plenty of water around, so that wouldn't be too surprising, though we never saw one.
Emily & Barry
We're a long-married, early-retired couple who are currently traveling as nomads with no fixed home base. After years of living in North Carolina (Emily's home state), we spent 18 months living oceanfront on Ambergris Caye, Belize, a year road-tripping the US in a Honda CR-V, a year in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and are now roaming North America in our 32' motorhome, Pearl, following warm weather whenever possible.
