Great day trip!

It is so fun to drive out on the causeway to the island. Love the historical ranch and the buffalo burgers!

The park is huge and it is beautiful. Unfortunately when we were there if you got anywhere near the water it just smelt like sulfur and dead fish. Dogs are not allowed on the beaches though I dont know why. For a 100 degree day in late June the place was empty. All in all it was good for one... More

We've visited the island for a couple hours - visitor center, walked to the lake and browsed the ranch. All kids loved the ranch experience. Also, enjoyed a nice view of a bison herd on the way to the ranch.

I visited Antelope Island on July 4th 2015 and took my wife and 6 yr old daughter. It was by far one of the worst experiences we've had since moving to Utah. Let me be clear, the scenery is excellent and you get some great views of the lake but if you are going there to swim at the beach... More

My husband and I had a few hours to kill before we had to catch our plane, and we were interested in seeing the Salt Lake. The visitor center recommended we visit Antelope Island. It was a 30-45 minute drive from Salt Lake City. Admission to the island is $10. It was very interesting to see the lake, we had... More

This place is desolate! Very hot on the day we visited. The Brine flies are really bad, so bring repellant. There are a number of animal and bird species on the island but it is not a pretty place

Driving North to South in Utah, I couldn't see the Great Salt Lake from I-15. At the Utah Welcome Center, I asked the trip advisor how to see the lake and he told me about Antelope Island. We found the exit off of I 15. You drive through stores and sub divisions and then out a causeway to the Salt... More

As a kid, we took a vacation to the Great Salt Lakes. However, the place off of I-80 west of Salt Lake City that we enjoyed decades ago is no longer available for swimming. We were directed to travel north of SLC to Antelope Island. You cross a 7 mile causeway to reach the island which is home to bison... More

We just live 5inutes away. Every time we go we feel like we have stepped back in time where the deer and antelope play. The island is beautiful wetter you want to go for a relaxing drive, hike, or float in the salt water there is plenty to do. I highly recommend visiting the farm and museum.

Drove around antelope island with my girlfriend, it was an extremely hot day so we didn't do much hiking but the drive was great and we saw plenty bison, one walking right in front of the car over the road! The historic ranch on the southeastern side gives a great insight into the history of the island, and signs posted... More
