My husband & I are new to Utah. Checked out Antelope Island on a whim one day, didn't see all before it got dark. A few weeks later we went back with my brothers three grade-school aged kids. They enjoyed exploring the farm, watching horses play, lassoing wooden "cows," having a picnic we packed, and running their energy out. We... More

There were a lot of Bison, seagulls, lots of other birds, coyote, and antelope. It was a nice day to be visiting. Great views of the Great Salt lake, but the lake is lower than in past years. On a clear day you can see so much around. There is a lot of hiking, but I didn't have time to... More

You will always find Buffaloes, deer and other animals as you drive around the island but depending on the weather, you will see some of the most beautiful scenery. Even cloud formations with their varied colors are hauntingly beautiful. Not sure why, but during stormy days it becomes a beautiful place to be. The sunsets are fantastic!

We had time in Salt Lake City before our flight home. Our hotel desk clerk made some recommendations, one of which was Antelope Island. It was a wonderful way to spend time in the area. Antelope Island is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. If you are 62 or older you get in for $5 instead of the... More

We have been to the island several times in the past year and every time is so fun! We have hiked, camped, grilled, explored, and visited the ranch and each time is a memorable experience. Wildlife is everywhere on the island so take a camera! Plenty of fire pits at the campgrounds provide ample opportunity to enjoy a campfire and... More

We drove from Salt Lake City to visit Antelope Island, hoping that the visit would be worth the 1 hour drive and it certainly was. We saw probably 100 buffalo and about half of them had babies, we were absolutely thrilled! Twice we had to stop and allow buffalo herds to cross the road in front of us. We also... More

We hiked Frary Peak on Antelope Island with our family of 6. We had 4 kids 8 and younger. As you can imagine, it was quite the experience. About 6 miles round trip, with pretty views. We made it about up and back in 3 1/2 hours. See more about our Antelope Island Experience at http://www.whymoms.com/why-you-should-take-a-hike-part-1-antelope-island/

Nice Visitors Center. Very helpful staff. Saw 50+ buffalo. If you go nearer to dusk, they often come out of the fields (where they are still quite visible) and cross the road right in front of your car! Also say mule deer, an antelope and two coyotes. All with a beautiful mountain backdrop on the island, the Great Salt Lake... More

If you are 62 years old or over it only cost $5.00 to enter the park. The wildlife we saw was awesome, bison, coyotes, birds, antelope. We did this thinking we were just killing some time before heading to the airport on our last day in Salt Lake City but we were impressed with what we saw. To quote my... More
