Magna, Utah: Saltair - The Cursed Resort

"Saltair" is a strange, Moorish structure built on the shore of the Great Salt Lake, in the hope that someone will come. Still hosts seasonal evening events, from shows by Jane's Addiction to food bank benefit concerts.

A peek inside.

Saltair - The Cursed Resort

Saltair is all closed off and now they hold raves and concerts inside. I was lucky enough today to get inside as there were people there taking down from the rave that they had had over the weekend.

Not much to see. Whole place is fenced off.

While the Saltair building still stands, it has been gutted out. It now hosts Trash Metal concerts. There is a small gift shop inside. The cobblestone floor is still intact, as well as the large "S" on the main floor. Nice place to visit if you are into feeling creepy.

We were just there -- none of the old glamor remains, but the gift shop is adequate and has pictures of the resort's glory days. The odor from the Lake wasn't bad at all, but we didn't swim (quite a hike to the water's edge). Semi-clean public bathrooms, no fees to look around, and a place to picnic. The new trees are trying to make a go of it, just like the old Saltair.

Saltair is closed, unfortunately -- fenced off and accessible only by foot from the State Marina. Wouldn't recommend it though because the "great" salt lake is pretty fetid there.
