Salt Lake City KOA – Utah

We really enjoyed the park-like feel of this KOA. There were so many great trees here. Plus, they even had grass, a welcome change from gravel parking lots.

Per the suggestion of our traveling friends, The Rookie Roadsters, we couldn't resist scheduling a chocolate factory tour at Mrs. Cavanaugh’s.
