The choices are pretty daunting within just minutes from the urban cores of Salt Lake City, whether its just for a relaxing afternoon getaway or 3-day camping trip.

I'll go here(Silver Lake Flats) several times a week during Spring,Summer and Fall. It's only minutes from the house in the city, and great for dates and barbeques with friends. This type of setting is almost unlimited in this urban area.
