About a 1:15 drive from Park City but definitely worth the drive. We wanted to see the lake up close and this was that and so much more. Great 360 degree views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Excellent view of the sunset too.

We were skiing and doing family history research in Salt Lake City. The days have been warm, the skiing hasn't been great, so we had some time to explore. Whenever we have visited SLC, we wondered about the lake, but it seemed inaccessible. Antelope Island is an easy way to get close to the lake, and learn about the spectacular... More

Beautiful terrain, amazing to see the buffalo close up. Stunning sunsets ... stick around to hear the coyotes howl.

We spent the day here hiking, looking at the rocks,vegetation and the Fielding Garr Ranch. The tufa and ooid rock deposits were interesting. The ranch teaches you about how hard it must have been for settlers. The kids liked hiking and the ranch. Everyone enjoyed seeing the buffalo and antelope. The visitor's center shows the Salt Lake brine shrimp and... More

Great park to see wild life. We saw Bison, Antelope, Coyotes, and many birds. We had a 3pm flight out so we went to this park which is 1/2hr north of SLC. Left Deer Valley at 8:15am and arrived at the park at 9:30am, toured around then headed to the airport for lunch then our flight. Highly recommend this park.

Visited during off-peak season and avoided the crowds. During our drive around the island we saw bison, pronghorn antelope, mule deer, coyotes, and numerous birds including a chukar. Visitor's Center was informative and included a nice gift shop.

In a day you can see coyotes, pronghorns, bison, a beautiful sunset, the snow-capped mountains surrounding the Great Salt Lake, and a nice view of downtown Salt Lake City. At least we were able to accomplish all of these. There is also the possibility of finding bobcats, large mule deer and bighorn sheep, although the only place to possibly see... More

We were touring out west the month of September and we were in Salt Lake City & found info in Trip Advisor about park. So we headed to Antelope Island to explore!! What a fascinating place to visit. The Visitor Center was a great starting place and then the Garr ranch. We saw so many animals just driving around. What... More

Great place to visit, go for a hike or a bike ride out there. Check out the bison and the weather has been perfect this winter. Nice to get out.
