Salton Sea State Park

Located on the northeastern side of the Salton Sea, the Salton Sea State Recreation Area offers hunting, fishing, swimming, and camping to visitors.

In the 1970s, most of the buildings constructed along the shoreline were abandoned due to rising sea elevation, including the city’s marina. In the 1980s, the Imperial Irrigation District took proactive water conservation measures to reduce the flow of unused canal water into the Salton Sea.
