Enjoy out of this world scenery and enjoy one-of-a-kind swimming experience.  

Drive 1.5 miles into the salt flats andyou'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 filledwith crystal clear salt water. Hop on in and you'll experience whatit's like to float on water! On hot days, the heat waves will riseoff the salt creating mirages that will have you wondering if whatyour seeing is truly real! After your dip in pools you can try yourhand at salt boarding, which is what we did as we made our way to ourcamp. After mid-August parts of the salt flats have been graded forthe 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 byvehicles. Be sure to wash your vehicle thoroughly after your visitsince the salt is corrosive.
