The Salton Sea was a formerly dry lake bed located southeast of Palm Springs. The area was flooded as part of an effort to irrigate the surrounding area in the early 1900s, and is one of the largest lakes in California. It is also one of the saltiest and most polluted, due to agricultural run-off. During the 1950s, the North Shore area was a very popular vacation spot, and the marina was one of the largest in the state.
The Club was in operation until 1984, when it closed after being damaged in a flood. In 2010, the county of Riverside operated the Salton Sea Museum and community center from the main building. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2015.
