Re: Headed to Oregon in 3... 2... 1...
I stayed in SLC last summer with the SMB for vacation/work and I have 3 recommendations.
1- Stansbury Island- close to SLC but far enough away, small dirt road leading out the the island, and plenty of boon docking opportunities.
2- Hwy 196/Skull Valley Road Exit just west on I-80. Head south and you will see a large hogback to the west. There are dirt roads all around this big piece of rock but it does get a little more traffic based on the proximity to the road. Not sure of the official overnight camping policy though.
3- National Forest to the west of Grantsville Reservoir- great area with little traffic, head back on the forest service roads until something catches your eye. Still relatively close to Toole and Stansbury for supplies.
I would have to say I like the Natl Forest the best and have stayed out there 3 times but Stansbury Island's location jutting out into the Great Salt Lake made for an amazing sunset!
