Great Salt Lake State Park


Great Salt Lake State Marina is home to the Great Salt Lake Yacht Club, which boasts the saltiest sailors on earth. Visitors will enjoy the beautiful views of Great Salt Lake, nearby Antelope Island State Park, and Black Rock.

It’s difficult not to notice the nearby Saltair Resort, a modern-day remnant and symbol of the original Saltair, and built on pilings over the shore area of Great Salt Lake. The new resort offers concerts and a concession service for souvenirs.

In 1980, the marina was enlarged with new boat docks.

Opened to the public as a state park in 1978.
Park Elevation:  4,200 feet

Take a look at our visitor center! It’s a great place to stop and learn about Great Salt Lake, buy a souvenir, and take plenty of photos.
