Enjoy out of this world scenery and enjoy one-of-a-kind swimming experience.
Drive 1.5 miles into the salt flats and you'll find yourself pulling up to one of the coolest places in Utah! Sitting in the middle of the vast flat landscape is a pool filled with crystal clear salt water. Hop on in and you'll experience what it's like to float on water! On hot days, the heat waves will rise off the salt creating mirages that will have you wondering if what your seeing is truly real! After your dip in pools you can try your hand at salt boarding, which is what we did as we made our way to our camp. After mid-August parts of the salt flats have been graded for the world famous speed week (roads marked by cones and blue paint) this allows you to travel safely across the landscape and help preserve the flats.
A word of caution, stay off the salt if it is wet. When wet, the surface is easily damaged by vehicles. Be sure to wash your vehicle thoroughly after your visit since the salt is corrosive.
- WATER (you'll need to enough to drink, clean your mess kit, and wash off after the pools)
