This is a nice state park. It takes about an hour to drive through without stopping. The visitor center has a 20 min movie and there is a ranch you can tour down the road if you'd like. Plan 1-2 hours -- more time if you want to hike the trails or swim at the beach. We saw lots of... More

Another testament to how delightfully helpful people are- while gassing up in Salt Lake City, I asked a man at the next pump how we could get to the actual lake. We were driving through to move the Darling Daughter to Denver and were so close it would be a shame not to actually get right up to the lake.... More

I have visited Antelope Island State Park five times now, and every visit has been pleasant; very enjoyable for all ages. The main attraction here is the bison herd that you are bound to see, often up close! The island has about 600 bison and they like to loiter near the main roadway and the nearby water. This works out... More

We camped there for 5 days, at the White Rock Bay campsite. The joys of the place were the antelopes running by, the bison in the area, hearing the coyotes yipping at night and in the morning, the many birds, the quiet, the amazing sunrises and sunsets, the surreal beauty. Finding a long intact snake skin was memorable. The things... More

We anted to see the Great Slat Lake and stopped at a Visitors Center and they suggested Antelope Island. We had to drive 70 miles out of our way to get there. When we paid to get in- they did not offer any maps and said to go to the Ranch. We turned at the sign and drove and drove... More

We spent the afternoon at the visitor's center and hiking around the north tip of the island. The visitor's center was pretty basic. I didn't think it would take much to add some more interactive and educational information. We're average hikers, so it was easy to hike to places with incredible views of the lake and surrounding beauty. We saw... More

This is definitely worth the 30 or so mile drive north from Salt Lake City and you can plan on a minimum of 2 hours if you are there just for a drive. There was a $10.00 entry fee when I visited. It is a great and very scenic way to see the Lake. The drive out the Causeway provides... More

I had read some reviews of Antelope Island on Trip Advisor, so I knew that it was worth the time to drive out there. It took 30+ minutes to drive out there from our hotel at the airport. Once you get to Antelope Island Road, it's a few miles before you get to the causeway, which is a seven mile... More

I spent about 2 hours on the island. I took the route to the ranch. On my way I was able to see 30-40 bison minding their business on the land. The ranch was pretty interesting. It gave you an idea on how things were way back then. You'll have good views of the Bay and Lake, downtown Salt Lake... More

This is a good way to see the great Salt Lake in Utah, looking out from a large island in the middle of it. Antelope Island is now inhabited by small herds of American buffalo, i.e. Bison bison... they often walk up near the roads.http://www.bing.com/search?q=antelope+island+state+park&qs=AS&pq=antelope+island+&sc=8-16&sp=1&cvid=cea4ead2bdf54e759c9af7d634389785&FORM=QBLH
