  • This is a fun little walk to take your kids. It is about a mile long all the way around the boardwalk. When we went there wasn't much wildlife to see. But, depending on the season that could vary!!  more »
  • Came out here to take some family photos and take a stroll along the boardwalk. It was a great trip other than I believe the observation deck should be closed off until they get the wasp issues under ...  more »

  • This was such a fascinating park to explore. The water is so saline it actually reacts differently to skin and even rocks which skip incredibly well. There is a variety of unique wildlife and fascinating geography. It reminds me of the Scottish Highlands. The colors of the land are unique. I am glad I went.
  • Beautiful Time Of Year To Go Visit The Great Salt Lake 😁 The Beautiful Snowy Mountains Over The Lake !
  • Well... I don't know what I had pictured in my head but it looks like any other body of water for the most part. However, the smell is bad... it's not the salt either, it's the waste from the brine shrimp and brine flies. If you go in the center there is a video that explains the lake and it's once very populated vacation destinations and many islands. There were once lots of people out on a pier with bathhouses, and roller coasters. The carousel that was once there was moved to lagoon, the nearby amusement park. I put my feet in... so interesting to learn about both the geology and history of the great salt lake.
  • So unique and beautiful. There is a wide variety of land around the lake that is very fun to explore.
  • Go for the sunset in summer. Breath taking views
