Bonneville Salt Flats

A dry, open area near Lake Bonneville known for car racing.

Reviewed By Hawaii32 - Winnetka, California, United States

We stumbled upon this accidentally--stopped to use the restrooms and then were amazed when we saw the signage!! We watched people wade into the water a bit, then got back in the car and headed out to the actual Flats. My husband was tickled to see this after all his years as a car enthusiast! This was right on the highway between Utah and Nevada, in Wendover, NV. Take a look if you're out that way!

Peppermill Concert Hall

Reviewed By funnytraveler1 - funnytraveler1

When I was given tickets to see Box Skaggs at the Peppermill Concert Hall, I was expecting to visit a venue that fits Wendover - small, mediocre and disappointing. Boy, was I wrong, This venue is incredible! Start with free parking that is close to the front entrance, then move to the incredible bar. It has friendly bartenders and the most incredible beer dispensers (magnets) I have ever seen. The seats are wide and comfortable, with plenty of legroom. Sound system was flawless as was the entire show. My friends who gave me the tix have been to numerous shows here and have loved them all.

Historic Wendover Airfield

Reviewed By Patricia G

We went to the visitors center when we arrived in Utah and decided to take a side trip to this airfield museum. What a history lesson and so appropriate for these times of conflict between US and Korea. The history of the 509th Composite Group (Enola Gay & Bock's Car) which trained for the first and to date only atomic bombardment of one nation against another. There is a monument that stands as a symbol of hope that mankind will reason and work together for the ultimate goal of world peace.

Wendover Will

Reviewed By 499theresas

Wendover Will is on the opposite side of town from Montego Bay, but really only about a mile away. We drove to it at night the first time. The kids thought it was really cool to see a 30 ft lit up cowboy in a "gambling" town. Completely different from our town. :) There is a grassy area at the base, so you may take pictures. We parked in front of it, just a little off of the road, which is probably not what the township wants you to do, but the traffic was very light. We hopped out very quickly and took a quick picture.

Resort at Wendover

We have visited Wendover resorts many times and have always enjoyed our stay. The shuttles will transport you from one casino to the others. They will also shuttle you to a market And the museum. The food is excellent in the fine dining restaurants.

Knolls Recreation Area

Reviewed By tmleader - Riverdale, Utah

Knolls Recreation Area is one of our favorite places to ride and camp. It's only 82 miles from Salt Lake City and 43 miles from Wendover, Nevada and The Bonneville Salt Flats.

Located just off of I-80 in Utah's west desert with nearly 36,000 acres of sand dunes, hills, and mud flats, this place is the perfect OHV play area. The dunes are not as large like at Little Sahara but still fun. If your looking for speed the mud flats are the place, you can drive long distances on these flats and rarely feel a bump. For a casual ride you can explore the many Knolls (hills) which the area is named after. There are trails going in every direction, pick one and explore the desert at your own pace. However, while exploring this area be sure to stay in the boundaries. If you travel south you will come to a fence, if you cross this you will be entering the Dugway bombing range, not a good place to be. So stay in bounds and watch for the fences, which are clearly marked, and you'll be ok. There are meandering trails throught the hills with some decent hill climbs as well. Here at Knolls you have all kinds of diverse terrain to ride. We personally do not ride paddle tires here. The dunes are not that big and you are also riding in hard pack and rock pack as well.

There is a fee of $6.00/per day per vehicle. The check in station is an envelope pay honor system. Bring cash and change. The place is patrolled by rangers and they will hassle you if you try to stay without paying. These fees are necessary in order for this place to stay open. All bikes, buggies or whatever must be stickered and have up to date registration. Once you enter you drive into the heart of the riding area on a graded dirt road and you can park and camp anywhere you wish. There are vault type out-houses closer to the road camp areas that are kept fairly clean most of the time. Many people choose to park way out in the desert flats. Here you would need to be fully self contained. There is no water available anywhere in the recreation area. You can have open campfires but wood with nails or pallets are not allowed (and they do check). You are responsible for all your trash and carting it out. There isn't much in the way of rules regarding quiet times. Gas or provisions are either at the first exit to Wendover at about 43 miles west on I-80 or the Sinclair station at Delle about 30 miles east on I-80. Fireworks are not allowed nor target shooting or hunting.

Most weekends offer plenty of room to camp while the big weekends like Easter break, Memorial and Labor Day weekends will get fairly crowded. If you have been to Sand Mountain in Little Sahara is not nearly like that as far as crowds go. They do however host desert races from time to timeas well.

From Salt Lake City take I-80 west about 82 miles and take exit 41. Turn left over highway and follow road as it turns right and continues west on the side road for about a couple miles until you see the entrance sign.

Overall it is a great place for quick riding weekend with a bit of different terrain for everyone. And close enough for those one day excursions.

You can internet search Knolls, Utah for other sources, pictures and information.

10 cousins from SD took a Wendover Tour of the Flats and surrounding area.
Bryan gave us a super tour. Very knowledgable of the area. Courteous, and gave us extra time for pictures and questions. We will definitely arrange another tour with him when back. Highly recommended, get out of the casino and get some Utah/ Nevada fresh air with Bryan!
Thanks, Bonnie

Sun Tunnels

Reviewed By artnik - Brooklyn, NY

I visited both the Sun Tunnels (an “Earthwork,” or “Land Art,” by artist Nancy Holt) and Spiral Jetty (also an Earthwork, by Holt’s husband, Robert Smithson, on the Great Salt Lake, Rozel Point, Utah) recently, and have essentially the same thing to say about each of them: I cannot add to the critical dialogue of the pieces. If you’re interested, then make the time, plan, and go. But go smart. I can offer a few logistical tips based on my experience: Good directions can be found on the Utah Museum of Fine Arts website. Try to be there at sunrise or sunset. Take a LOT of water. Take snacks. Drive slowly on a washboard road for many miles. When you arrive, park your car a distance from the work, don’t drive right up to it and interfere with the viewshed. Think about what’s happening as you walk towards the piece. Take sunscreen, bug spray, a wide-brimmed hat. It’s very hot there now and there’s no shade other than inside the tunnels. The white surface of the land is highly reflective. You won’t have cell service. Don’t leave garbage. There is no porta-potty, so if you’re going for any length of time, take toilet paper with you and a plastic bag to carry it out in (no garbage cans either). Unlike Spiral Jetty, there are no big rocks or anything that offers cover if nature calls. The closest bathroom, food & drink can be found at the Cowboy Bar in Montello. Stay long enough to see the light change on/in the piece. It’s not just a photo opp, it’s an experience. Enjoy every minute.
IMPORTANT: as of 6/1/17 there is major roadwork on Highway 30 due to a dam break in Montello this spring. Parts of the road near the turnoff to Sun Tunnels are closed, though locals are driving on them. Do a little research to find out the current status, you sure don’t want to go all that way and then not be able to get there. A high clearance vehicle is recommended.

West Wendover Welcome Center

Reviewed By Ron H - Okawville, Illinois

You may be inclined to pass right through the Wendover area, but do yourself a favor and stop at this visitors center to enjoy a little history of the area. It goes back to the time of Wendover AFB, where training occurred for the ending of WWII. There are lots of great photos and interesting artifacts, giving you a real sense of the times. The folks are friendly, knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. It's not your regular "travel through" resting place and you'll enjoy spending an hour to give yourself a stretch break. I give them an A+ and highly recommend it.
