** I LOVED Antelope Island but before I go on about that I will put out a quick warning! (PLEASE READ) SAVE YOURSELF THE TROUBLE.. don't walk out to the water on Bridger Bay. It's a hike from the car and you will only get out there to realize that there are millions and millions of flies that sit on... More

The highlights of this place: the bison, the island and lake itself, and the swarms of insects. Keep your expectations low, and enjoy the small pleasures.

I toured Antelope Island State Park in the evening. This was a stunning drive and the most spectacular sunset I have ever seen on the water. Such a shame that this gem is not appreciated for its beauty, odd biodiversity and all that it serves the economy for even if it is industry. My only disappointment was that the grill... More

Once on the causeway from the "mainland" to the island, the hustle and bustle of civilization is pretty much left behind. The views back to the mainland are spectacular on clear days. Be sure to drive south on pavement to the Fielding Garr Ranch and walk around on a self-guided interpretive tour which includes the oldest Anglo house in Utah... More

Beautiful country. The drive through the park was very interesting. The only downfall was the walk to the lake. It is in its natural state which includes the flies and the smell. But, it is worth the walk and the smell to get to the water.

Wanna see lots of Buffalo without the traffic of Yellowstone? Well, this is the place. The sights to see here are amazing. I would have to say though, visit during the cooler months. The smell during the Summer can be pretty strong. Also, they have these tiny bugs that can be pretty annoying. Having said that, I still have to... More

Antelope Island is located within the Salt Lake and you reach it from Layton, Utah and the Park Entrance starts with a couple mile causeway which makes for a great bike ride. If a cyclist is the Park has great bike rides with lots of hills. Beware of the outdoor toilets. They are filled with spiders and bugs and not... More

Ventured out to Antelope Island State Park with the family as we drove across the country. I did not expect it to be so beautiful. Great views of the Salt Lake City area. We enjoyed watching the roaming bison and saw an antelope as well. We visited the ranch and my young kids thought it was cool. Definitely a great... More

We were in Salt Lake City for the day, and I saw this island on the map. It looked interesting, so we decided to check it out. We were there for about 3 hours in the evening. It was a very fantastic and unusual place, and well worth the $10 per car entry fee. We saw more nature on this... More

This island was definitely not what I expected. I read reviews that said there were many spiders all over the island, and I actually looked forward to seeing some and taking pictures of them. But there was not a single spider in sight. I guess going in July means no spiders. I saw more buffalo than spiders. The entrance fee... More
