A great spot for viewing the lake. Spend the day picnicking and wading in the Great Salt Lake.
- Great Salt Lake State Park has been popular with bathers since the Mormon Pioneers first arrived in the basin in the middle of the 19th century. Although no swimming ability is necessary (the high salt content of the water keeps even non-swimmers afloat), bathers should be aware that the super-salty water may irritate throat, eyes and nose. A small visitors' center offers a museum, local information and a video about the lake, while the private SaltAir development provides a few shops, some food outlets and space for concerts and other events.
