Ice is Never 100% Safe! — Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on the ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out. Click here to learn more ice safety tips.  

Road Conditions:  The road is going through repairs from the earthquake damage but is open.  

Other Information:  At 1,700 square miles, the Great Salt Lake is the largest U.S. lake west of the Mississippi. Storms can be violent and waves can approach 8 to 10 feet. Check weather forecasts before launching or boating. We fear no quagga’s here!

The lake is low.  Only very shallow draft boats can launch right now.  Launch at your own risk.
