Revel in Andy Adams Reservoir
From sunrise to sunset, Andy Adams Reservoir is a haven for water-lovers and outdoor adventurers. Use the ramp to push off for a day paddling around the reservoir. Keep your eyes open for the different kinds of birds that love to visit the area while exploring the expanse of the area. The Andy Adams Reservoir is located on private property and requires walk-in access.
Paddling at Antelope Island State Park
Antelope Island State Park offers more than visiting the herds of bison and hiking. It’s a great access point to the Great Salt Lake where the saline water provides extra buoyancy — perfect for floating. Set out into the water just west of the marina on the north side of the island near the causeway or from Bridger Bay. Paddle serenely along the calm lake with beautiful views.
Even if you don’t have your own gear, there are plenty of places for you to rent paddle boards, kayaks, life vests and more. Check out these places for your aquatic adventure needs:
