A good friend and her family came for an impromptu visit last weekend. She declared she wanted to swim in the Great Salt Lake. She even mentioned it being on her Bucket List. I tried to reason with her. I told her that all I remember from my visit there as an 11 year old was stink and brine shrimp.... More

Stopped here on our way through Utah. Did not expect such a large, beautiful island to explore! There are apparently several types of animals to see, though in our brief (2 hr) visit, we only saw a few bison. The views are really incredible. It is possible to see Salt Lake City and the surrounding banks of the salt lake... More

I have lived in Utah all my life and have never been to this park. We decided we should take our kids out and explore. It was pretty amazing but very strange. Great place to spend a couple of hours.

If you get a chance to float in a Salt Lake, you might as well take it. Is fairly close to Salt Lake City. My kids had a great time and good memories.

We wanted to see the Salt Lake on our brief visit through SLC - my son found this on the map and we thought it looked like a good way to see the lake. Turned out it was a little out of the way, but worth it. The vistas are incredible, it had very light traffic, and the wildlife viewing... More

Interesting drive across the causeway to the island. Rather barren landscape at first but is actually teeming with wildlife. It would be a birdwatchers paradise. The visitors center was a little sparse in atmosphere but full of information.nbe sure to watch the film. There are numerous drives and scenic view points. We visited the ranch at the far end of...

I don't personally think that there is much to see here. Do you want a nice shady spot? It's not here. There are no trees on the island, I think. Boy Scout troops go out here to camp, but I don't know why. Still, you will likely see bison, antelope, and the occasional coyote. It is a very good place... More

This is a fun drive full of Utah landscapes. You will definitely see some bison. In fact you will see a lot of bison. We were fortunate enough to even see a coyote. You will get pictures of the bison but not of the coyote. The Antelope roam and are hard to get pictures of. If you persist however, you... More
