Views of placid Salt Lake are full of mirror images of the surrounding mountains, and are stunning. However, if you go in late spring or early summer you might want to stay in your car. Millions of mosquitos and biting gnats wait for you to leave your car... then eat you for lunch. No exaggeration... there were literally swarming clouds... More

Driving out to Antelope Island to watch the sunset is like another-world experience. Just minutes from the city you are in a National Geographic-worthy place of quiet beauty. We parked at one of the "beaches" and walked into the shallow salt water. The kids played for an hour before the sun began to set. At our vantage point, the water... More

You will get good exercise walking from the parking area to the water's edge through some pretty loose, soft sand. Make certain you wear sturdy sandals that can be rinsed off after walk. Seeing brine shrimp was fun as was wading in the lake itself. It appears to be a harsh environment and fascinating to see how the bison and... More

After a long day of driving, it was nice to relax on the Great Salt Lake and watch the sunset. This park was beautiful and nice beaches. I highly recommend coming here.

This is a nice state park. It takes about an hour to drive through without stopping. The visitor center has a 20 min movie and there is a ranch you can tour down the road if you'd like. Plan 1-2 hours -- more time if you want to hike the trails or swim at the beach. We saw lots of... More

I went in September. It was not crowded. 10 bucks to get in but worth it. Nice gift shop with reasonable prices. The volunteers were very helpful on what to do with limited time. Bison were everywhere. I don't know how many live there but it's in the 100s. I thought the ranch was boring but maybe since it was... More

A fabulous place with amazing views. Some of the most amazing scenery on earth. I would recommend here for anyone visiting Salt Lake City only a short drive down the I15

Another testament to how delightfully helpful people are- while gassing up in Salt Lake City, I asked a man at the next pump how we could get to the actual lake. We were driving through to move the Darling Daughter to Denver and were so close it would be a shame not to actually get right up to the lake.... More

I have visited Antelope Island State Park five times now, and every visit has been pleasant; very enjoyable for all ages. The main attraction here is the bison herd that you are bound to see, often up close! The island has about 600 bison and they like to loiter near the main roadway and the nearby water. This works out... More

We camped there for 5 days, at the White Rock Bay campsite. The joys of the place were the antelopes running by, the bison in the area, hearing the coyotes yipping at night and in the morning, the many birds, the quiet, the amazing sunrises and sunsets, the surreal beauty. Finding a long intact snake skin was memorable. The things... More
