We visited this beautiful state park with a friend of ours who is a volunteer on site. Based on his knowledge we first drove to Fielding Garr Ranch. On our way we spotted a few bisons walking on the ice covered salt lake resulting in nice pictures! At the ranch we were welcomed by a local ranger that guided us... More

A great place to hike, bike, see nature and enjoy a unique and beautiful island. The island is close to home and very easy to get to. The buffalo roam free and there is a nice education center. A god place to explore.

Not a lot to do depending upon the season but the scenery and wildlife are magnificent. Camping and hiking trails watch out for the gnats ( brine flies) in the summer

The best thing about the island is being able to get away from the city, cement and traffic without going very far. If you squint, you can see the city across the lake, but it's so quiet out on the island. Playing in the sand at the beach was great. It's interesting to see the round sand. I guess it's... More

You don't need to worry about heat and gnats in March, so none of the negative reviews are relevant at that time. If you drive to the left when you get to the island you should see bison quickly. They come rather close to the road so that was cool. We didn't see an antelope until we had given up... More

We needed to stop somewhere for a picnic and also wanted to see the Great Salt Lake. We came to Antelope Island State Park. It really was beautiful and magical despite the stinky odor of the lake. Take the road toward the Carr Ranch and see the mountains reflect in the lake as buffalo graze on the side of the... More

Then after having enjoyed a... More

Until recommended by Shawn, Thrifty Rental, we hadn’t even known of Antelope Island. This ended up being a highlight of the trip and was steeped in Utah history. The countryside and lake were impressive to see and I’ll be honest, the coolest part was being able to see Bison roam freely. The drive around the island was quite cool too…never... More

Our visit to the park, while marked by unseasonably cold weather, was nothing short of fantastic. The plethora of wildlife, the docile nature of these tame beasts, and the astounding scenery all made this trek worth out time. I highly recommend visiting if you get the opportunity - well worth the investment in your time!

We enjoyed another trip to the island on New Year's Day. The visitor center is definitely worth exploring. They have a great gift shop and lots of good information. The ladies there were kind enough to recommend areas of the island to find specific wildlife. On this trip we saw lots of Coyotes, Bison, Deer, Porcupines, and Chukars. We also... More
