Great Salt Lake State Park

Events

 

Saturday, August 25                     Full Moon Walk                          8:15-9:15pm

 

Join a park ranger for an evening stroll across the expanse of Silver Sands Beach. The walk will begin at sunset, and we will watch as the full moon rises over the Wasatch Mountains and casts its reflection over the Great Salt Lake. During the walk, you will hear strange stories of the lake from times past, some true, others merely being tall tales.

Meet at the observation point just past the visitor center at 8:00 pm. The walk will consist of approximately 1/2 mile along relatively flat terrain. Flashlights are recommended, though we will keep them off for much of the time.

While the event is free, we do still ask that everyone pay the $3.00 (per vehicle) entry fee to the park. Dogs are welcome.

Saturday, October 13                      Kite Flying over the Great Salt Lake                 1:00 – 3:00 pm

Actually an inland sea spanning over 1,000 square miles, it’s often windy along the shores of the Great Salt Lake. So let’s have some fun with the breeze and fly some kites! We will have about fifty kits on hand, but feel free to bring your own if you have them.
 
Meet under the Yacht Club pavilion, to the left as you enter the park. After the kites are made, we’ll go fly them on the beach. The kite building kits will be provided free of charge, but will be initially limited to one per group on a first come, first serve basis.
 
While the event is free, please note that there is a $3.00 day-use fee (per vehicle) to enter the park.
