Lake Point, Utah Details
The first settlers were Mormons, but after three years of crop failures most of them moved elsewhere. By 1870, the railroad ran from the mining area in Stockton to the south shore of the Great Salt Lake where it connected to the steamboat that went across the lake to Corinne on the north shore. This connection prompted a developer named Jeter Clinton to try to create a recreation area called “Clinton Beach.” He built a temporary building, called Lake House, providing showers and refreshments for tourists. This building was quickly replaced by a hotel, but there were few customers and the steamboat service stopped in 1872. In 1892, the Buffalo Park Land Company bought the property, mapped streets, landscaped, built cabins, and added buffalo. This idea also failed, and the buffalo were sent to Antelope Island.

Places to See and Things to Do in Lake Point, Utah
The Great Salt Lake
The Great Salt Lake is 75 miles long and 35 miles wide and offers a lot of recreational opportunities such as swimming, kayaking, sailing, and floating, which is easy because of the salt water. Even motorboating is allowed on the lake. The lake is on average only 20 feet deep so moderate winds can cause rough sailing. There are also opportunities for hiking, road biking, mountain biking, and exploring areas such as Antelope Island where a variety of birds and wildlife can be viewed or where you can sit on the beach and watch the sunset.
Temple Square, Salt Lake City
Temple Square is a three-block plaza built by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It encompasses 20 sites including the Salt Lake Temple, beautiful gardens, and the Family History Library. You can also attend the Sunday morning concerts or the Thursday evening rehearsals of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Temple Square is open from 9 AM to 9 PM every day, and docents are available to give free guided tours.
