Provo River Property
2 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents1 acre · Provo, UTThis is a beautiful area! We plan to build our dream home on this lot but in the meantime, we want to share the amazingness with campers!Learn more about this land:***Please read this entire listing! We want you to have a great time and for this to be a great fit for you!***DO NOT BOOK UNTIL YOU'VE READ EVERYTHING! It serves no one if you don't have a great stay. **TEMPORARY NOTE- We're in the process of enclosing the lot with an 8' concrete privacy fence. The listing is written as it will be when the fence is done. As of now, most of the fence is done but we have to remove a few trees so there are some gaps in the privacy fence. When it's all enclosed, I'll take down this temporary note.***If you read the listing and still have questions, please reach out! I've improved the listing based on feedback from reviews on our other listing, and I answer ALL messages with pre-booking questions.PROs: Convenient location! Park Bathrooms (in the summer)! Locked Gates! Great Price! Next to a city Park! CONs: Next to a city park. Possibility of nighttime noise disturbances for those in a tent.KEEP READING!This is a fenced-in property right by the Provo River and the city park. It's surrounded by trees and the fresh smell and sound of the rushing river. You'll have access to the private driveway, the gated entry, and you can place your tent or camper anywhere on the lot. (Tent campers- this is not a quiet area. Tent camping not recommended unless you sleep like the dead.)We're steps from the Provo River trail that takes bikers and joggers to Utah Lake or up into Provo Canyon. It's great for taking long beautiful walks along the river. The river is just 100 feet away! You can make your way to the edge and sit with your feet in the fresh flowing water. There are many places where you can easily step into the clean river and swim, raft or fish.The park located right next to us is heavily wooded with lots of private spaces for meditation or exploration. The small duck pond is home to many beautiful wild ducks that will be happy to accept your food offerings. HipCampers who love the space typically want a safe but urban area to explore, relax, or work as part of their nomad lifestyle.*SET UP: You may set up camp anywhere on the lot.. Our trailer is the one with the little flower planters next to it. We don't mind if you park close to our trailer. We're not there every day. Please note that we do use our fire pit sometimes so park away from that if you don't like smoke. *NOISE: Please note we are close to a train track and you WILL hear the train sound in the night. We are also in proximity to a freeway which is not visible but sometimes able to be heard. You may hear people talking in the parking lot and vehicles moving.*SECURITY: Both gates lock. We are in a safe albeit public area. There is one streetlamp that lights the bridge going across the river to the bathrooms. Other than that, it's very dark, so bring a good flashlight. Because of the lack of lighting at night, it feels very private. Some guests have reported it feels sketchy at night which is understandable for someone to feel when in new surroundings. Yes, people use the path and sometimes the parking lot during the night, but we're in a very safe area compared to other cities. We keep all gates locked at night and when the property is vacant during the day.*TOILETS: Toilets are in the city park and are usually open, though they close for the winter season. There is a park just a little further down the trail that also has bathrooms. It is better to plan on no toilet services during the winter. We are not responsible for the city toilets so if you plan to judge your experience on them, please don't stay here. ;)*WATER: Drinking water is available on our lot. Provo city water is safe to drink. *POWER: 15 or 50 amp power is available with the purchase of the power "extra" at checkout. You MUST pre-order this add-on. Power is locked but we will give you the code if you have purchased the extra. The prime spots to park are up to 100' away from the power. You MUST have at least a 50' cord if you plan to use power and ideally a 100' if you want to park in the shade and still have power.*PRIVACY: Our lot is completely enclosed. On the public side (park and trail), we have a 8' tall concrete fence. Immediately outside our gate, you'll have access to the park and trail. The playground/pavillions/duckpond is on the other side of the river across the bridge. Provo residents are very friendly and may greet you at the park or on the trail, but they won't bother you when you're inside the private lot. *PETS: We are so sorry but pets are not permitted anymore. We have a little flock of chickens and ducks that call this lot home. We also have a parrot we bring when we are camping. We’ve had problems with guest pets so we have to say no more. *NEIGHBORS: We have a caretaker living on the lot. You will see his camper when you arrive. He keeps an eye on the property, feeds the critters, and is willing to help you if needed, but his job is not caring for Hipcampers. He will leave you alone.*ABSOLUTELY NO parties, no drinking, no drugs, no loud music.*NO GENERATORS. No you are not an exception. Yes, they are ALWAYS too loud. If we hear it or get a call from a neighbor that you are running it, we will ask you to leave with no refund.*NON-WATERED WEEDSCAPE WARNING. The grass in the park is green. Our lot is a 1/2 acre without a sprinkler system. Please don't arrive expecting everything to be green. We keep some area in the shade green but the rest is let to do its thing (which is die in the hot summer sun). Thanks!*CHECK IN TIME- is anytime after 2pm. If the site won't work for you, please cancel before 11pm for a full refund. ****THIS LOT IS PERFECT for you if you:-are boondocking (dry camping) with a self-contained vehicle or tent (and are not a light sleeper.)-like the convenience of our location-need a quick and easy and safe place to sleep as you make a road trip stop. (we're close to gas and the freeway)-have read all the transparency in the listing and think it'd be a good fit****THIS LOT is NOT perfect for you if you:-Are recreational camping and want a mountain or remote setting. Remember- this is within city limits.-haven't read everything above. Because guests who don't read a listing all the way through but still make a booking may be disappointed. **FREE CANCELLATIONS till 11pm!HipCamp's super flexible policy allows for free refunds up till the time of check-in. We've set our check in time to 11 pm to allow ample time to cancel. If you arrive and it won't work for you, simply cancel! If you do not cancel before 11pm, I'm sorry but there are no refunds. We tried to make things as easy as possible for you to get all the information you need. Please cancel by 11pm on your arrival date if it doesn't work for you.
