Photograph the Great Salt Lake
Utah › Great Salt Lake Marina
Added by Phill Monson
Capture diverse landscapes in a geographically small area. Due to its proximity to Salt Lake City, this is an easily accessible photo adventure where you can get some of the best sunset spots in Utah.
The most popular place to get out to the Great Salt Lake is by way of the Antelope Island Causeway. While Antelope Island has some great locations, the Causeway provides some wonderful views, as well as a way to photograph closer to the lake. To access, take the Antelope Drive exit in Layton, Ut, and head West until you hit the entrance booth.
Another location is via the Great Salt Lake Marina - take I-80 West out to Salt Lake and follow the signs to the Marina.
Depending on the season, you'll need different items - Spring Summer and Fall are warm and full of bugs - not kidding. FULL OF BUGS. Bugs that bite and swarm, so bring plenty of bug spray and long sleeves/pants.
- Camera with a good tripod
- Good shoes for hiking
- Utah State Park Pass, or $10 entrance fee
