Took my daughter out by old Saltair to take some pictures of the sunset with her new digital camera. Very disappointed because there isn't anywhere to really go. There used to be beaches all around you could walk around, some brave ones actually used to...More

I was always wondering what the story of the Great Saltair was until we took our daughter-in-law there. The person that welcomed you had told much of the history of the building through its long existence. The great gathering place in the early 1900's. The...More

We were staying in Salt Lake and wanted to see the Great Salt Lake. It was getting later so this was the closest reasonable place. Easy to access Historical spot but all locked down. Still lots of cars with folks hiking out to watch the...More

We stopped, frankly, for a restroom after going to the State Park / Marina. There is a small gift shop with the history of the building. The employee was super friendly and was eager to share the history of the Saltair. It indeed is interesting,...More

I wanted to see the lake from somewhere besides an airplane and had a short time to do it. So, I rented a car and drove out to Saltair and the state park (about 20 min. from the airport). I had read about the heydays...More

The current building is not The Great Saltair that was built in 1893 and drew people to bathe in the salt lake for their health. This building with minerets has suffered from the drought which has caused the lake to recede. It is an all-ages...More

This is a must see. A breath taking moment. You can walk below on the beach. It's 3.00 per. Car it's an honest policy just put the money in an envelope.
