As the seventh-largest city in Utah, Ogden is a location that is known for its beautiful view of the Wasatch Mountains. Waking up in the town in an RV with the mountains in view can be a pleasant experience, but the first thing that you need to consider before taking a trip is the RV that you are going to rent. When it comes down to it, there are two basic types of RVs that you can rent, which include:
If you need more assistance finding an RV that fits your needs, RVshare has an RV classes page that you can use.
Whether you have a luxurious Class A RV or a pop-up camper rental in Ogden, you are going to need to find a great place to stay. Golden Spike RV Park and Lagoon RV Park are great options to inquire about. In fact, paying for a stay at Lagoon RV Park will net your family access to the Lagoon Amusement Park nearby. RVshare has an Ogden, Utah, campground page with more options if you are looking for something different.
Even though there are five national parks in the state, they are spread pretty far apart from each other. The closest option to Ogden is Capitol Reef National Park. It is an area that is filled with rock formations, bridges, cliffs, canyons and more. There are over 2,700 fruit-bearing trees in the orchards. There are more than 15 trails in the area that you can look forward to, all of which vary in levels of difficulty.
Sometimes when you are not going to be in the area for a while, you are going to need to have a place nearby where you can keep your RV. In the town of Ogden, Millstream Storage and RV Parking and J and J Leasing are both great options to check out.
With any Ogden RV rental, you are going to need to locate a dumpstation where you can dump your sewage without an issue. Most campgrounds or dumpstations will allow guests and fellow RVers to pump out their sewage for little to no cost. Smith’s Food and Drug and the State Trailer RV Supply are free to use, and so are some of the state parks in the area.
If you are looking for attractions that you can explore in the great outdoors, then Waterfall Canyon is a great scenic trail that offers three miles of waterfalls. There is even a 200-foot fall that you can see along the trail. If you enjoy fishing, Cold Springs Trout Farm features seven ponds that visitors are permitted to fish in. There is also a Railroad Museum in the town that may be of interest.
There are quite a few sports teams that you can catch in the area. The Ogden Raptors and the Ogden Knights are great options to watch while you are visiting the area.
Right outside the Ogden airport, you will find Interstate 15 and 84. Routes 89, 37 and 169 are also in the area. If you need to get to a campground that is on a local road, there are plenty of connecting roads that are RV and big rig accessible.
