If you haven't been there, it's worth a visit... once.
No shade, mostly flat and it starts to stink when the weather turns warm.
LOTS of annoying, flying insects, and they manage to get right in your face, but it's good to be able to...More
Glee over fir the first time during daylight. It is huge. And has many appearances of cliffs
Salt marsh, estuaries for birds and so much more.. really needs to be seen if you are near here. Attached a few airplane dots to pique your interest

There are several places where you can visit the Great Salt Lake. Although it gets smaller every year, it is still interesting to learn about and to look at photographs when it was years and people would float in the lake. There do tend to...More
A first trip to Salt Lake City must include a glimpse of the Great Salt Lake.We were told by a local that the best views were from the Antelope Island State Park.We were also advised to bring food since the only restaurant on the island...More
We learned that the great salt lake does not have an outlet and is very shallow. The average depth is only 14 ft with a maximum depth of 33 ft. Unbelievable that a lake that size is so shallow. We visited in October 2018 when...More
We stopped by while headed to the airport to pick up someone. It's only a ten minute drive or so to the visitors center. The visitors center is a small portable building but it has some good information and a short film about the lake....More

The Great Salt Lake is an historical and natural phenomenon. Most who try to swim in it would be shocked at how easy it is to stay afloat. I floated and swam in it many times and love the Lake. Some visitors do NOT enjoy...More

One nice view is to head west on Interstate #80 towards Nevada. That's where you will find the Great Salt Lake State Park. If you continue driving west on 80, you will see the lake on your right the entire way; there are also some salt companies harvesting salt (like Morton's). If you continue for an hour or so, you will come to the Bonneville Salt Flats where they race cars (bikes, airplanes, etc.) It is worth the drive.
yes, very close. go to antelope Island. our go around to the south side of the lake, it's not that much further and check out salt air. the building isn't what it used to be, bit it's very pretty to photograph on the... More
