We visited on a beautiful December day, went to the Fielding Garr Ranch to see what life was like on the island back when this was a working ranch. We also enjoyed hiking the nearby trails to get a great view of the lake and the mountains. The park is open year-round but the visitors center is closed on Thanksgiving,... More

Definitely worth the drive from Salt Lake City. $10 to get on the island and from there you can drive to the different scenic spots. We nearly ran into some bison on the rode as soon as we drove onto the island. The views of the lake and the mountain are amazing, too. I could see how it would be... More

Antelope Island is beautiful no matter what time of year you go. I love seeing the bison and other wildlife. On a hike my friend and I almost got stampeded but other than that, great experience! Just have to be smart :) I think there is also camping in the State Park. If you aren't interested in hiking, driving around... More

Great visit especially if you have never been there. It is a bit of a drive from Salt Lake City but it's the closest place to the capital city to see Bison and Antelope.

We visited in July and it was a beautiful place to see the sunset. Be sure to stop at the visitors center where you can learn some interesting facts about the island. We didn't allow enough time and didn't cover much of the island, but we did see some wild animals and we took a short hike. There's a huge... More

Unless your travels take you to Yellowstone or the Badlands this is a great place to see Bison. Some of them were right next to the road. It was worth the drive out to see them and the Island itself. Some great views of the lake and surrounding area.

Beautiful scenery with bison and other wildlife everywhere and the park rises way up so you can see a lot of the lake and the skyline of Salt Lake City. This is definitely worth the 30 minute drive north of the city.

It's not often that there is a chance to be totally removed from what we know and learn something that it totally foreign and unexpected. Antelope Island is one of those rare experiences. The stats alone will bogle your mind and then when you wrap your head around how old this basin is, it is truly a natural wonder. I... More

We walked around the Visitor's Center and perused all of the info boards and displays. We watched the video presented so we could fully enjoy all of the sights on the Island. It was a chilly day so we stayed in the car for most of the visit, but we were visited by so many buffalo that I was most... More
