Tooele County Reviews

15 reviews
All Categories
I have been living in Tooele for 11 years. Tooele is a meduim sized town that has a very close helpful community. Since were are still a growing town we don't have that much stuff to do entertainment wise we do have a couple of restaurants, Movie Theaters, and bowling but that's about it. The main form of entertainment Tooele brings is being close to mountains and lakes especially the Great Salt Lake. If you are a outdoor type of person then you will love Tooele. Growing up half my life in Tooele I feel the School system out was decent but now amazing and most teachers did care about their students. Since Tooele is a smaller town jobs are more limited and harder to find. The majority of people in Tooele are nice and friendly. Since we are a smaller town everyone knows everyone and we are a tight community. Overall I have had a very good experience living in Tooele and I am glad that I live here.

If you're up to a family oriented area then Tooele, UT is for you. Lots of fun things to do with your family. Wish there were more clothing stores but other than that it's a great place to live!
This is a great area where the community comes together for those in need and is surrounded by amazing countryside, canyons and tiny mining towns tucked away in out of the way canyons that have been long forgotten by most. The majority of the entire area is all farmland and military zoned area (it is the largest testing range 801,505 acres together with the Utah Test and Training Range and together they form the largest block of overland contiguous special use airspace measured from surface or near surface within the continental U.S. (207 by 122 nautical miles). Cool place to live.
