Stansbury Island - Search Nearby - Added by Eric Bennett

Unique scenery you won't find many other places. Amazing sunrises and sunsets. Incredible reflection photography shots.

Rarely will you ever see another person at the underrated Stansbury Island, the second largest island within the Great Salt Lake in Utah - even though a dirt causeway connects it to land, it is still considered an island. The lack of crowds make this a very chill place to camp out, shoot photos, and enjoy the sunrise or sunset. Just about an hour drive from Downtown Salt Lake City, you will find Stansbury Island and its many lakes. The lack of crowds also includes a lack of rangers or maintenance so the place is pretty rugged - as always, be careful and stay safe.

There are no official campgrounds at Stansbury Island but you'll see several camper-made fire pits around. The majority of the land is BLM owned, which means camping is allowed virtually anywhere. There are small plots of private property so keep an eye out for signs and be sure to be respectful of these land owners and not camp on their property. During the winter months it gets very chilly and windy here so bring good, warm gear!

Awesome Salt Lake Stopover

Got to Stansbury late after a day of driving. Enjoying the quiet with the full moon over the rolling hills was a in once in a lifetime moment of peace!
