Great spot! The Mountain views were lovely and I parked right by the “ocean” for a great little desert water side visit. Hosts were great, I was comfortable and felt safe. Will visit again if I come this way!

We decided to stay here for a night and, boy, was that a mistake. First of all, it was not a very comfortable stay. The "camp site" was near the road so you could hear trucks passing by all night long.

It was nice that they offered showers (you have to be in your bathing suit since it's in a public area), but the entire area is infested with mosquitoes since there is a lot of standing water around. After showering, we were getting our tent up and felt like something was biting us. Linda, the owner of this site, preemptively offered bug spray to us without us asking. That was nice, but that just meant that she knows this area is a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Once we realized we were getting bitten by mosquitoes, we tried our best not only to cover up, but also made a camp fire to try to deter them. By morning, I had at least 8 bites. It was such an uncomfortable stay that we decided to leave immediately when we woke up the next morning and didn't bother trying to have breakfast there.

Two days after leaving this camp site, one of the bites on the back of my leg was enflamed and I ended up having a high fever. We tried going to Urgent Care, but they said it looked infected so I had to go to the ER after. The area where I was bit was swollen up and was the size of a baseball. I've been out of commission all week and have been on antibiotics. While Linda is very nice, I wouldn't recommend this location as a camp spot due to all the mosquitoes and its proximity to the road.

Linda and the employees of Utah’s mini “ocean” were very nice and respectful, and very helpful for me as I am on a road trip across America! They offered me advice on what to see and say with me and took the time to explain the area to me to travel. The fish “pedicures” were amazing and the tropical fish were beautiful!

Our host Linda was super nice. And we were already to set up our tent, when we realized we left our bags at home. LOL duh. So we ended up having to go back home. But Linda was very sweet and she said we could come up whenever we wanted again without pain. She is great! And I can’t wait to do you some scuba diving next time!

Very interesting location in the middle of a salt flat. Hosts were kind and welcoming, very secluded and private site. There are definitely some little gnats so bring bug spray! Good stopover point for traveling through.
