Visitors to this state park will find swimming, picnicking, wildlife viewing, boating and group picnicking opportunities available. The lake seldom freezes so most activities are possible year-round.

Location
The Great Salt Lake Marina lies 16 miles west of Salt Lake City along Interstate 80. The park is on the southern shore of the Great Salt Lake.

Climate
This state park lies at an elevation of 4,200 feet within the Great Salt Lake Basin. This area receives relatively mild winter weather in contrast to the mountains surrounding it. Summer temperatures can soar well past 90 degrees F, but the elevation (and afternoon thunderstorms) help to cool the air slightly at night. This region, like the whole state, is generally arid. Most of the precipitation comes in the form of snow, during the winter months, and thunderstorms during the late summer.
