Hello,

Thanks for reaching out to us! Usually when there is an electric hookup at a certain location it is RV accessible. If you are interested in a Federal recreation site, you can visit recreation.gov and search for your location of interest, this will tell you all of the amenities available.

Hope that helps, Thanks!

As far as I know, the salts are similar to that which you'd use in a home well water softener system, and should be harmless when in contact with bare skin, wet or dry.

At this time of year, I doubt you'd want to go barefoot, air temperatures of 90+ degrees can create very hot ground temps, possibly enough to cause fairly serious burns. Also, the crusty salt would probably be pretty jagged and hard on barefeet.

The Salt Lake City office of the BLM also advises, on vehicles or on foot, to avoid the outer edges of the salt flats when conditions are wet, both to preserve the ecosystem and prevent you from getting stuck in the mud.

Hiking alone is a great way to connection with nature and yourself! The fresh air is an excellent way to clear you mind and is safe as long as you hike responsibily and come prepared. Always hike trails that are to your ability to reduce the risk of incidents. Often, you will see plenty of other people while hiking on trails in the national parks. 

It is, however, important to inform others (a friend or family member) where you will be going, what route you will be taking and when you intend to return. If you are thinking about going off the trails into the backcountry solo, be sure to leave your information at a ranger station. Don't forget to bring proper gear and be prepared for changing weather. Maps and a compass are always necessary. 

In case of an emergency, people will be aware that you are out there. If nobody knows where you are heading off too, nobody would think anything is wrong for a few days at least.

It's a short day hike from Moon Lake Campgrounds to the Brown Duck Trail. There's plenty of camping opportunities in nearby East Basin. Please note some trail areas may be inaccessible due to winter weather. For more information, visit the Forest Service's page on Ashley National Forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/ashley. Have a fun and safe adventure!
