Black Rock Access

Due to construction along I-80 working on replacing a bridge, it was decided the best solution to protect people and construction equipment was to block vehicle access to Black Rock.

Pedestrian traffic is still allowed.  If you wish to visit Black Rock, please to park on the side of the frontage road as to not block construction traffic and then walk in to Black Rock.

If you have further questions, please Park Staff at the Visitor Center.

This State Park provides boat slips, public viewpoints of Great Salt Lake, sail and motorboat access, and a search and rescue operations center. The lake, which is two to seven times saltier than the ocean, is also a popular destination for bird watching as it is a major stop for millions of migratory birds.
