Suggestions in Utah

We're in a sweet little park in Glendale, UT exploring the area for a week. We're headed up to Grand Teton but don't need to be there directly. Looking for suggestions along or near Rt 89 on the way, maybe at the halfway point. We like full hookups and places that are relatively quiet.

Any ideas ?

You are at a great campground right now. I love the views up the canyon from the place. Two suggestions: Temple Hill in Manti and Mountain Valley in Heber City.

Manti is a beautiful SMALL town on 89. Temple Hill campground is next door to the Mormon temple which is beautiful at night. The camp sites are tight quarters. Good amenities. Should be VERY quiet.

Heber City is close to Park City and is a larger small town (they have a Walmart!) and has more of a resort feel. Mountain Valley is a brand new resort and is very nice. Beautiful area. Lots of restaurants. You would take 89 north to Spanish Fork. Get on Interstate 15 for a few miles and then 189 up Provo Canyon to Heber City.

Are you planning on seeing Salt Lake City on your way? The list of things to visit there is huge. There's a very nice KOA on W North Temple, a mile or so from the airport (but not under the flight path- can't hear anything). We wound up staying there for 6 weeks a couple of years ago when medical issues altered our plans. It was actually quite a nice place, and a rather pleasant stay. There's a restaurant a few blocks from there- also on W North Temple- called The Red Iguana. Kind of sketchy looking, but very well reviewed, highly regarded, and hugely popular (long lines at lunch in 100* heat). And not expensive, either! Bill themselves as "pre Hispanic Mexican". We went back a half dozen times. No waiting if you do the "late lunch" thing-- around 2:30. Absolutely great.

Park City and the past Olympic venue is very interesting to check out.

We made reservations for Mountain Valley RV Resort. If it's as nice as the pictures and the reviews we'll be more than happy. We plan to explore the surrounding area while we're there. It will only be 2 nights and then off to Grand Teton

Thanks to all for the suggestions
