Not having a car, I took an UBER to the Marina Section of Great Salt Lake. It was a beautiful place with great views of the Lake. On a short walk, I got stuck in the mud!!! Luckily, I was able to get out with...More
Visited in the afternoon so our two boys could take a dip on the Great Salt Lake. $3 to enter - well worth it. There is plenty of parking and a path takes you down to the shoreline. It smells a little but not too...More
I went to the small Visitors Center located at the State Park and was able to speak with the ranger there who was a font of knowledge regarding the salt at the Lake and Bonneville Salt Flats. The Lake itself is huge and is used...More
The Great Salt Lake is a MUST SEE....something we always heard about in school. However, the State Park leaves much to be desired.......being senior citizens on 'Senior Day' our admission was $1.00 for the car.
The "visitor center" is small but does have some nice...More
While we were heading to the Great Salt Lake State Park, we saw a lot of lakes with salt.
We had to pay 5$ to get in.
The great Salt Lake is the biggest remnant of salt in the world. Three rivers flow into the...More
We were staying in Salt Lake City and took a drive to Antelope Island. It’s a scenic drive of Salt Lake and we were able to tune to the suggested radio station and learn while we drove. We saw lots of bison.
Had to do it because when we were growing up it's the only thing we ever learned about Utah, - THE GREAT SALT LAKE... There is a small marina, the visitor center is a small double wide (we did not go into it). There is...More
The visitor center there has a film about the history of the Great Salt Lake and its resorts, as well as the Kennecott Utah Copper mine. Being that the mine's visitor outlook at the pit is still not open after the landslide a few years...More

Hi, huiling s. I went to Antelope Island last July. I doubt that you can get to Antelope Island by public transportation. It is about one hour and forty minutes' drive north of Salt Lake City. You have to get out to Antelope Island by driving on a causeway. Once you are on the island there is a long road leading to intermittent beaches. It is car-friendly, but not pedestrian-friendly. I did not see any bus stops or bus shelters on the island or in the vicinity.
That said, I also went to the Great Salt Lake State Marina, which is located about 20 minutes' drive west of the Salt Lake City airport and has Silver Sands Beach. I did not mention it when I wrote my review, but there were many Chinese tourists both times I went. They seem to have come on tour buses. Obviously, there is some private way to get to these beaches without driving yourself. Unfortunately, I do not know what private bus companies go to the Salt Lake beaches. Good luck.
