Today was a long drive as we headed south through Montana seeing roundups along the way, then on to Idaho checking out crops and crop dusters, passing Malelucca (one of our favorite companies) in Idaho Falls, admiring the scenery in Pocatello (one of our favorite towns), and on into Utah! We quite enjoy this drive!
We headed on in to Layton to an RV Park across from Hill AFB. Hill is the Air Force’s second largest base by population and geographical size and is home to the 75th Air Base Wing and the flying activities of the 388th and the 419th Fighter Wings (F-35A and F-16s). Their mission is to Build Trusted Airmen, Create Resilient Infrastructure, and Deliver Combat Power.
Valley View RV Park is fairly new and as its’ name suggests, it DOES provide a view of the valley. It also provides easy access to both I-15 and the base and is about 35 minutes north of Salt Lake City. It provides lots of great viewing of the jets as they take off, fly around the valley, and land. If you don’t like jets and the noise then don’t stay here. Otherwise it is a terrific place as you get to hear the Sound of Freedom and watch an air show from your RV!!!!
RV Park: Valley View RV Park
Location: Layton, Utah
Site: 34 (pull thru)
Comments: A nicely maintained RV park with easy access to both I-15 and Hill AFB. The park is full of amenities and also offers terrific views over the Salt Lake City valley and the Salt Lake.
There are several roads of sites all of which have some kind of view. It is a typical RV park with sites close together but all have paved spurs, full hookups, grass, and picnic tables.
The Club house not only has the office and check-in area but a small store, a gym, several sitting areas, and a game room.
Outside there is a pool, sauna, kids playground, two pickleball courts, and a nice seating area with a community firepit. The whole area has terrific views of both the Wasatch Mountains and the Salt Lake.
And yes, there was a storm in the distance. Luckily it was short lived and did not interfere with our plans but it did stop the jets for a bit.
YES! The Sound of Freedom! Thank you!
