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

Left Salt Lake City, heading north decided to visit Antelope Island per recommendation in Trip Advisor. Easy drive across causeway to island. We were there early morning in mid-September and were relatively alone (saw three other cars). There were still plenty of mosquitoes thirsting for the limited blood available. The visitor center was a very good introduction to the history,... More

Easily accessible by car and very close to Salt Lake City. Good family activity with short and long hikes. Stunning views of the lake and the mountains. We saw bison, antelopes, and coyotes all the same day.

I Great day trip the island is so unique lots of bison and antelope with an old 1800s ranch to explore. Trails for mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding. A photographers paradise just take a lunch because you will find lots of things to see and you will stay longer than you think. Have fun and enjoy it's spectacular.

Went to explore and take photos of the scenery. Excellent chance to try out several lens on my camera. The Bison were not scared, they would just continue to eat or rest, we didn't bother them at all. The Fielding Garr Ranch was amazing. To see a house built back in 1848 and still on its original foundation was just... More
