Our family went to Antelope Island State Park this summer while on vacation. After driving in we decided to get out and explore a little at a stop along the beach. The lake is quite a distance from where we had to park and the sand was so thick it made walking difficult. Once we made it down to the... More

We spent a couple of hours driving thru the park. The weather was very nice - warm and sunny. The only wildlife we saw was a couple of buffalo. We got a quick bite at the Buffalo grill. Couldn't walk to the great salt lake as it was way too far for us. They should consider some type of shuttle... More

Seeing the buffalo herds, antelopes and other wildlife. The topography was beautiful and there were several hiking trails for various skill levels.

We spent 3 hours at Antelope Island yesterday morning and it was a very enjoyable time. The weather was gorgeous - warm and sunny but not scorching hot. The visitor's center left a lot to be desired - I may even suggest skipping it. The informational movie, something we usually love at state and national parks, was pretty lame. It... More

Just a quick drive from Salt Lake City puts you on Antelope Island. There is hiking, camping, and a real herd of buffalo. You can tour a turn of the century ranch with hands on displays. Beautiful scenery of the lake and the mountains. Great for bird watchers too.

I visited Antelope Island while visiting a friend and her young family in the Salt Lake City area. The views were incredible, and we saw lots of Bison at the southern tip of the island. I was really excited as I'm from the North-East, so everything was very new and different for me - from the landscapes to the mountains... More

This island is secluded, having to gain access to it via a causeway. There is a $10 access charge, as it is a state park. That said, the $10 is well worth it. There are campgrounds and a visitor center. Beach access is easily available, but the bugs along the beach are numerous and annoying. Well, where there are bugs... More

And you can take it in anyway you like; horseback, hiking, biking, even from the car. Just a great experience. We saw swimmers (floaters?) in the lake itself. The name of the island which is 42 square miles is accurate. Hate to use it but "the deer and the antelope play". And of course, the buffalo. Technically Bison, the animals... More

We enjoyed visiting the ranch, seeing the buffalo, some hiking, and the views. The smell as you go across to the island improves!

You will cross a causeway to get to the island. The views are spectacular. When I went the water was low so you had to walk farther to get to the water. You will notice the smell right off....some days are stronger than others. There is normally boat rentals but the water was too low. There are hiking trails, camping... More
