The Great Salt Lake is the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River. The lake and its islands provide outstanding scenery and recreational opportunities in northern Utah. Sunsets over the lake can be breathtaking, as you’ll see here and over at Antelope Island. There are two state parks on the Great Salt Lake: Antelope Island State Park and Great Salt Lake State Park. And we can’t forget to mention Spiral Jetty, Golden Spike National Historic Site, the Shorelands Nature Preserve, and the remnants of Saltair.
A remnant of the massive Lake Bonneville from millennia ago, the lake is now landlocked and its waters are salty.
