“Waste Land”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

If you are looking for an era gone by look no further ..... but it is desolate. But isn't that what an old salt lake should look like. If you a crystal hunter then this is your place, though.

“Crystal Digging”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I was told the digging for crystals was easy...well we had a hard time for about an hour. After an hour a family left, so of course we took there hole and found the digging and crystal finding much easlier. On our way back to the car we found crystals just laying around on the ground and of course we snatched them up. Why coudn't we havce fond them sooner.
I had fun, but it was deathly hot and we did not see any of the migrating birds. I think it will be awhile before I go back there. It is in the absoulte middle of nowhere.

“Very disappointing....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Not much to do there with a shallow lake with no swimming areas. The crystal digging area is unique....but is beastly hot when you are there in the summertime.

“Crystals and Salt Plains Lake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Dig for Selenite crystals in the only place in US. Stop over place for the migrating Hooping Cranes. A very quiet area and almost sereal area--the Salt Plains themself are very interesting!
