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

My husband and I visited Antelope Island on our recent trip to Salt Lake City area. It was a very interesting and fun quick trip! While on the island we saw plenty of birds, lizards, antelope and bison! The visitor's center has very cool architecture and is informative. We parked and walked down to the salt lake beach too. It's... More

We didn't look for wildlife as we had just come from Yellowstone, we had one goal- to float in the Great Salt Lake. Beautiful park, unique views and serene area. We naively walked down to the water and waded in. It is gross, there is a layer of tiny brine shrimp on the water and lots of bugs. However, we... More

Amazing place well worth the visit. Close-up encounters with buffaloes and you may also see an elusive antelope! Nice snack bar and gift shop. Great views and scenery.

We had a wonderful time here. We saw Pronghorn, Bison and numerous birds. We walked down to the lake at Lady Finger Point and had lunch there too. The self guided tour of the ranch was very informative. The no-see-ums were pretty bad in places and caused us to end a hike early though.

We fell upon this island during a business trip and we were thrilled with the many herds of buffalo, the sweeping vistas, the easy hiking and the gorgeous weather. It's the largest island within the Great Salt Lake, UT-- about 40 square miles-- lots of nice drives, visitor center, and lots of species of animals including big horn sheep and... More

Having lived in Montana, Idaho, Nevada, California and here and there I found Antelope Island a gem in Utah. A place to hike, mtn. bike, camp and hang with the buffalo, antelope, deer, coyotes and other wild ones. Although I visited in March and it was fairly quiet I suspect in 2 months it will be overrun with people so... More

This is a good place to spend 3-4 hours. You access the park via a causeway after paying $10 a car. We went to the visitors center to learn about the history of the island. There were 3 antelope grazing near the parking lot. We drove around and there was a small herd of bison in a meadow. We saw... More

We had a great morning out here. we saw lots of wildlife and the old ranch is incredible. You can touch almost everything including old clothes, farm tools etc. You get a wonderful feeling of what it "might have been like". I love this place and will visit again when we come back to SLC. I'd love to camp.

Pretty island which is home to large numbers of bison/buffalo herds. It was windy and cold the day we went, but I think this would be a lovely place to hang out on a warm summer day.
