Discover Salem


Salem is a small city in Utah County, in the state of Utah, and also a suburb of Salt Lake City. It was originally settled in 1851. Early Native Americans called the area “Summer Spring” but the settlers named it “Pond Town”. It was later renamed Salem in honor of Lyman Curtis, who was the prophet Joseph Smith's bodyguard. Curtis first arrived in Salt Lake Valley in 1847 and is credited with developing water irrigation canals from Spanish Fork Canyon to several sites in the valley, including the site where Salem now resides. He also constructed a lumber yard, and for his efforts and accomplishments, the town was named after his birthplace, New Salem, Massachusetts.

RV rentals in Utah County are your introduction to this very unique state in the heart of America. Other notable cities worth visiting include Sandy, Orem, Provo, Santaquin, and Eureka. Orem has 19 city parks, some of which have water facilities and wall/rock climbing structures. Provo has a year-round moderate climate, and its proximity to nearby mountains equals great skiing by day and more reasonable temperatures by night. Your RV rental in Salem is the bridge to some or all of these places.

The Great Outdoors

Spanish Fort Peak is a popular hiking destination, with serene valleys and forests leading up to the peak, where panoramic views look in all directions. The higher areas are quite steep, but there is the opportunity to view the wildlife that lives in the area. Be sure to pack water and food; proper hiking shoes are recommended, as loose rocks could result in twisted ankles. Park your Salem travel trailer rental nearby and all the comforts of home will be waiting for you after you are done.

Santaquin is home to a number of orchards growing cherries and other types of fruits. Some of these farms welcome visitors and are open to showing their guests around. Visitors here can purchase fruit directly from the farm after sampling some of the produce that is available, and your Salem RV trailer rental will be the perfect place to store and enjoy it for days to come. Make an afternoon of soaking up the sun, fresh air, and fragrances that these venues have to offer.

Utah Lake is a fantastic destination with an extensive list of available activities. Visitors to this area can rent jet skis, kayaks, paddle boards, and more. They can go on fishing tours, take sailing lessons, or go bike riding or swimming. It is an amazing resource for bird watching and photography, or just taking in the view while picnicking.

RV Parks

Most of the RV resorts in the area have restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, and camp stores. The sites within each campground mostly have big rig and pull through access, and Wi-Fi. Rent a motorhome in Salem and your vehicle will be perfectly suited for Utah conditions.

Lakeside RV Campground is a larger family-owned RV park with a heated swimming pool, a recreation room with pool tables and video arcade games, and a dog park. It has access to Provo River and Utah Lake for swimming and boating, and trails for hiking and biking, among other activities. It is open all year round.

Springville – Provo KOA is a larger RV park with a clubhouse, a swimming pool and playground, a community fire pit and pavilion, and much more. There are some tent sites and cabins, but the majority of sites are for RVs only. Some sites are pull through, some back in and all have electrical outlets; the campground roads and individual sites are paved.

Big Mountain Campground is a midsize RV park with a swimming pool, a playground, and a recreation room. Some sites have full hookups but the rest are water and electricity only. The sites also have gravel pads with grass between sites and plenty of shade. Guests can explore the recreational trails for hiking and biking, or go fishing.

Exploring The City

Salem is very much a family-oriented city, and nothing says “family” louder than miniature golf (if only other sports could learn how to make everyone look this good). Salem has a good selection of bowling alleys, another family-oriented sport. Those with kids in tow will want to check out the local fairgrounds (there are several) within a short distance of Salem; these attractions offer a blend of history and culture along with midway rides and the oh-so-important cotton candy booths. Artistic types will rejoice that Salem has an arts scene with painting and photography venues; visitors can browse the local art or pick up supplies and get their own creativity on. Shoppers will want to visit Sandy, Utah, which is a good location for window shopping, cafes and splurging on those designer clothes that are too nice to leave behind.

When the dinner bell rings, this is one city where you will want to be. Restaurant prices in Salem are reasonable to cheap, so dining out shouldn't be a burden on the wallet. At least one restaurant serves up Argentinian food, with entrees such as empanadas (chicken or beef wrapped in pastry) and lomito Argentino (toasted sandwich with thinly sliced lomo steak, veggies, spicy chimichurri sauce, and fried egg) that by themselves are worth the trip to Salem.

You will also find Peruvian and Mexican food here. The Peruvian restaurant serves gorditas, thin cornmeal bread slices served open face or as wraps, with a variety of toppings. More conservative foodies can check out the Chinese establishments, with familiar dishes served in large portions (and there is your lunch for the next day). Bring the leftovers back to your Salem luxury RV rental or pick up some groceries and throw together a good home cooked meal, the possibilities are endless.

Frequently Asked Questions


What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Do RV rentals offer delivery?

Having an RV delivered to your home or destination is a great way to simplify your trip. Many RV owners offer delivery and setup services, usually for an extra fee or within a certain distance of their location. Each listing shows whether or not delivery is an option.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership.
