Worth a stop!

After seeing all the ads and commercials, it was nice to step foot on the actual Flats. It was warm and flies every where but the view was pretty and glad they had a bathroom!

Flat out on the flats in the middle of nowhere! This place was fabulous for me! I was able to open up my throttle and run my charger wide open! Bucket list item. This entire region is an amazing spectacle! Another marvel of the universe.

If you find yourself in far western Utah on the interstate get off on exit 4. Head about four miles to the north on a paved road and you'll end up at a paved parking lot at the edge of the salt flats. We made a special trip from Salt Lake City in mid May and were greeted by wet... More

This is a must see site in Utah. We stopped her for a break during our cross country trip from NY to CA. You can walk on the flats and they have hoses so that you can rise the salt of your shoes and dog paws before getting back in the car. Also a great location for guys who are... More

We drove to the Salt Flats in April there was nothing to see except for the sign at the end of the paved road. It is an awesome place that hold a lot of history but if there is no racing there is nothing to see. It would have been nice if there were some signs or billboards depicting the... More

I made the salt flats in August of 2011 satisfying a life long ambition. To witness the collection of cars/bikes/trucks that had made the pilgrimage to this most awe inspiring place to pit themseves against the clock was unforgettable. The racing has a level of responsibility placed on the racer /spectator alike you simply do not see in places like... More

Nothing to see but miles of salt. There are many car races that take place here. Our son-in-law would love it!

As expected Bonneville Salt Flats are an expansive table top of salt. Fascinating views in all directions of white, shimmering heat, and salt. We visited in mid-September arriving from Nevada (west). On US 80, the drive drops from the hills (Wendover) and you can see the expanse of the flats. Our GPS led us to the correct exit for the... More

Go to Speedweek in August. The world's wildest cars running over 400mph. Do be careful with rental cars on the salt though. They have to be thoroughly cleaned before return and the salt gets everywhere! Accommodation needs booking WELL in advance. Do not miss...
