Antelope island is only a stones throw from my house and a great place to just escape to. If you know what to expect on the island it can be an amazing place. The Great Salt Lake is not a place to go swim and play in for most. It's a dead lake and not much life other than Brine... More

Loved camping in the rv on the island, woke up to grouse talking and watched the jack rabbits run around then realized the bison were right next to the camper. Drove around the island and saw antelope, bison, jackrabbit, grouse, mule deer but no sheep they must of been hiding. Then we also hiked around and to top it off... More

Really nice drive on island in great salt lake. Island has a great history where Antelope and Bison were imported to the island when their numbers started dropping and now the island has over 600 Bison and many Antelope, deer, birds. The island is 17 miles long and Bison normally stay on far side of island near the fresh water.... More

Unfortunately, there was a wildfire there when we visited so we were limited in where we could go. The visitor center was interesting and the campground worked well for us. I had in my notes that there was no water or bathrooms there, but there were indeed both and coin-operated showers are at the beach. A nice surprise! We swam... More

We had never heard of Antelope Island State Park in Utah, but decided to stop by and see the sights during one of our recent travel days. We are so glad we stopped! In addition to numerous views of the Great Salt Lake, there are hundreds of bison that roam the island. To reach the park, you drive across a... More

You will reach through a single bridge with a $ 10 toll per vehicle. There are several sights and access to the beaches. The Visitor Center is at the top of the hill. Several trails for walkers and the discovery of animals, especially the bisons. To visit it well and for its full-size you need at least half a day,... More

Driving out on a causeway, into the Great Salt Lake is such a neat experience!. The salt water smell makes you think you are near the ocean. We wanted to get our feet wet, but there were too many small bugs making a foot wide border around the water. As you go out the causeway, be sure and listen to... More

If you have a few hours or a free day when in Salt Lake City this park is on 45 min away and well worth the drive. Take water!! This island has hiking and a lot of nature to see including herds of Bison!

We didn't want to end our trip to SLC without learning a bit more about the Great Salt Lake. We decided to visit Antelope Island, the largest island in the Salt Lake. It is about 40 miles north of SLC off I-15, exit 332. You reach the island via the Antelope Drive Causeway, about a 10 min drive from the... More

Stopped here after reading other reviews on TripAdvisor. Although there was a recent wildfire, the island was mostly open to vehicle traffic, and we saw many bison and pronghorn antelope on our drive along the island coasts. I would recommend the hike up to Buffalo Point. The hike is not long (o.4 miles to the top) but is steep in... More
