BUGS AND AWFUL SMELL
Jul 2021 • Couples
If you like swarms of bugs and a sickening smell this is the place for you. If not, don’t waste your time, drive on to the salt flats. We read the bad reviews before we went and went anyway. It was a mistake., wish we had listened. Took some pretty pictures.

Salt lake city
May 2021
It was given three stars because of the lake itself. The park was extremely smaller than expected. And not much going on. Better off going to antelope island. If it weren’t for the lake being famous I would give it a 1. However the city of salt lake is very beautiful and a must visit for the backdrop scenery and food. Recommended stay of less than an hour is for the state park not the city

If you don't get to see the Dead Sea, this is the next saltiest body of water
Jun 2021
We visited on our way out of Salt Lake City to our next destination. It was around 9am so the visitor's center was not open (opens at 11am). We just parked and walked around the beach. There are tons of flies the closer you get to the water but the views are spectacular. Great place for pictures. We didn't get into the water though.

Worth a quick visit
Jun 2021 • Family
Great little place to stop and walk and dip a toe in while traveling. Only about an hour stop. Cost is $5 and do not be concerned with the gravel road, they are doing updates. The visitor’s center had bathrooms and a nice little gift shop. The overlook was nice and the walk out to the beach was quick. Beware of all the gnats around the water’s edge. Literally thousands of them. Spray your feet and legs with bug spray. Coming back, there is a place to rinse off your feet in the parking lot.

Access to the lake and beach
Jun 2021 • Family
Off Saltair Drive and 5 dollars to enter. Small visitor center. Access to the lake by boat ramp and beach access too. Lots of sand fleas or flies on the beach.

It’s a place to view the lake
Apr 2021 • Couples
Not much to do here other than look at the lake. There is a building with a few displays about the lake.

Worth the Drive for Nature Lovers
Apr 2021
What a treasure! We walked near the water's edge and appreciated the sights, sounds, and yes, even the funky smell, as it was new to us. The park was easy to drive into, the fee minimal ($5.00) and the scenery stunning. A short 15 minute drive from Salt Lake City, if you are visiting and haven't seen a huge salt lake before, I recommend the drive. The shades of gold foliage, blue green water, gray/white salt shores and snowcapped mountains... true perfection!

Salt Lake City Staple

Definitely worth visiting since it's the namesake of the SLC but be forewarned, it's a little underwhelming since there isn't much of a park. The entrance fee is $5 (cheaper than other state parks) and doesn't take much time to get through.

Nice little park on the Great Salt Lake. The store was closed due to COVID but there are plaques posted to talk about the lake and the copper refinery (which is across the highway). Sand/salt was soft in some areas but it was still easy to get to the water. Beautiful scenery to the north. Admission was $5.00.
