Visited the island (State Park) last minute while in the area from Ohio. The island is a lot larger than I expected. The island is excellent for all levels of hikers. But there are plenty of activities to do without no hiking. The amount of wildlife, especially the 700 plus heads of bison that roam the island makes you feel... More

Very nice stop out in the great Salt Lake! A nice visitor's center and displays. Good video as well. Stop at the beach, too and dip your finger in the Salt Lake!

We visited the park as a day trip from Salt Lake City. The scenery is beautiful and there were many bison close enough for photo opportunities. The park is quite big so you could easily spend the whole day here if you wanted to explore.

Well, the people that can't find antelope.....there were 2 just past the causeway heading up the hill toward the visitors center. The bison heards were lounging in the various wallows some out in the salt beach!. The drive to the ranch was very nice as was the ranch. It was in the high 80's, but not bad. The Ranger &... More

Very interesting and unique park. Great to see Buffalo roaming free in there own environment along with Antelope and other wildlife. Salt Lake is a very unique and interesting place. Besides the wild life the park houses the oldest house in Utah which is on the oldest ranch in Utah. One can explore the ranch with a self guided tour.

Awesome for families!! Take your family and go visit this place. You should have patience for the bison but it the end you can take a lot of pictures. Don't forget try with bison hamburgers!!!

Beautiful island and impressie bison herd. Nice place for a day. Hike and swim - or better float - in beautiful Great Salt Lake. Bring musquito repelend and your day will be perfect!

It does get hot and the lake smells briny but that is what we expected in the summer near The Great salt Lake.It is NOT "romantic" but "magical".It is so underpopulated one can easily imagine what the early settlers and explorers experienced, a situation which is almost impossible to find in the USA in the middle of summer. No noise,except... More

My wife and I loved driving around the Island, it has great views of the Lake and we got to see many Bison and some Antelope and deer. There is a nice giftshop on the Island with helpful people inside and bathrooms.
