After leaving Grand Junction, Colorado, we continued on I-70/50 home.  Our next stop was Antelope Valley RV Park in Delta, Utah.  This park is under new ownership and the new owner is working on improvements to the park. 

In the middle of the park is a large grassy area that a lot of the sites back up to.  As you can see from the photos, there are lots of larger trees for shade.  They’re all full hookups, cable, laundry, cement/grass in most sites.

Delta is a city in Delta County, Utah.  This town was settled as a farming community in 1883 and incorporated as a city in 1901. This area is located along U.S. Route 50 in central Delta County, between Deseret to the west and Fillmore to the east. This is the center of an agricultural area known for wheat farming and for livestock raising, particularly dairying.

This small town in central Utah has a population of just over 3,000. It’s located near the Delta Reservoir, which provides a great opportunity for fishing, boating, and hiking. The town is also home to a number of historic buildings, including the Old Delta Courthouse and the Delta Pioneer Museum. This area is a great place to visit if you’re looking for a relaxed pace of life and stunning scenery. There are a number of bed and breakfasts in the area, as well as several restaurants serving traditional American cuisine. This area is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy some time in the great outdoors.

Delta experiences a semi-arid climate with hot summers and cold winters. However, temperatures are moderated somewhat due to the overall elevation which is much lower than that of the surrounding mountains on all sides but the southwest where it backs up into part of Millard County’s Sevier Desert. As a result, overnight lows are often 30 degrees cooler than in nearby desert valleys.   On average January/February brings this towns coldest temperatures with highs averaging between 37 degrees.  However, highs occasionally exceed 60 degrees even in mid-winter due partly to chinook winds which bring warm air from over the Great Basin Desert on occasion.
