This was a lovely drive out from Salt Lake City. It was interesting to learn about the salt lakes and the history of Antelope Island. We saw some bison and antelope. It was disappointing the grill was closed as we were looking forward to bison burgers. Otherwise a good place to visit.

Don't let Google Maps fool you. It tries to direct you to a mountain top. Target the visitor center which is about an hour drive from SLC. There are many hiking trails, wildlife, camping,...

My daughter and I had a wonderful time exploring the island. Breathtaking scenery, antelope, bison. So glad we took this detour while in Salt Lake City.

Come to see the buffalo, you can even sail here from Salt Lake Marina. Be prepared for the brine flys, they don't bite but they are a little bigger than most bugs. I enjoy going out here, but like to take the drive around to the side of the island to minimize bugs. There is a Buffalo roundup every year... More

This was a delightful surprise. With one extra day to kill in Salt Lake City we took a chance on Antelope Island. What an amazing way to spend a few hours. Bison, pronghorn and porcupines were out and easy to spot. The views are incredible both of the island and in the distance. It's an easy drive with a big... More

We were in SLC with a baby and this was a great way to take a drive on a cold wintry day. The bison came close to the car and a herd of antelope crossed the road in front of us. We also saw furry balls in the trees, which turned out to be porcupines. Did not have a good... More

We visited in early Jan 2017 in the hopes of spotting a bison. We had great success seeing around 100 bison including juveniles, a porcupine, 3 coyotes, a bald eagle, pronghorn antelope, deer, rabbits and a huge flock of ducks on the salt lake. The bison were very close to the road and even crossed right in front of our... More

You have to pay to get on the island. This is a beautiful place left as it should be. There are buffalo wondering around and so many birds. You can wonder or stay on the trails. More to see than I ever thought! So many photo ops. The sunset is beautiful with the water!!! Go, you won't be sorry.

Our family went to Antelope Island and spent a little over half a day there. It had snowed several days before and the roads were in good condition for driving, especially if you are not used to snow. We saw at least 40-50 bison, several rabbits scurrying through the scrub brush, several mule deer (don't let the name fool you,... More

We visited here on a family road trip on our way to Zion to check out the Great Salt Lake for a couple of hours. The positives are you can float like never before with no effort and you may see some animals like buffalo and sheep. The negatives are the sand is hot and rocky and the water leaves... More
