What's to be said? When in the area you simply must visit it. it's interesting when you think about it but a whole other thing to stand at it.

You travel on the I15 for a bit and have to know where to turn off as they don't even advertise it widely. Through this old neighborhood and suddenly you get to the Causeway. Just $10 entrance per car, and once you start crossing the causeway, you enter a different world altogether. In summer it's buzzling with people going to... More

this is a great place to go if you know what you are getting into. yes, the bus and spiders are awful. I don't go there to swim. but, to go walk around and enjoy sunsets or to take amazing photos, this is the place to go. fun gift shop too.

You can walk a great distance on the salt bed as the lake has disappeared from the shore. The smell is quite unique as is the felling of the salt bed on your feet. There is lots of parking to visit the lake and when I visited quite busy.

With time to spare I made the drive to see the great salt lake if just for bragging rights alone. Nice drive while viewing Antelope Island.

Lots of salt! Been there many times. I have always enjoyed visiting out there and seeing the vast amount of salt and water.

Driving by the Salt Lake was amazing. Seeing the Salt manufacture and knowing where it comes from is incredible! There are parts of the Lake that look like a mirror! I don't know if it was because it was cooler outside or if it is always like that. I felt like I had left reality and time for a while,... More
