A nice place to spend the day driving around, looking for wildlife to photograph, and having a picnic at the beach. Would love to come back again to try camping here since it's so quiet, just being in the middle of Great Salt Lake. We saw a ton of bison, a few antelopes, but were definitely on the look out...

I recently drove through the park on Antelope Island, and I'm so glad I didn't shy away because there was a fee. We had a close encounter with a bison in the roadway. Also, there are many beautiful photo opportunities worth savoring. Take time to take it all in.

Antelope Island is a wonderful day trip for all families. Wildlife, mountains, and the Great Salt Lake are just beautiful. The roads are easy to navigate and provide access to gorgeous views of the surrounding area.

What a surprise. Had no idea of what was in store. Coyotes, bison, deer, pronghorn, harriers, golden eagles and I was there only 2.5 hours. Well worth the entrance fee of $10. Loved it!!

We came primarily to see the Great Salt Lake but got so much more! We saw the lake, Bison, Pronghorn, deer, coyote, Golden Eagles and many more birds. Great visitors center with lots of information. Great for adults and families with kids of all ages.

You need to plough through a lot of greater Salt Lake traffic to get to Antelope Island, but it's worth it! As you drive over the causeway, you move into an entirely different world, completely cut off from the city. The views of the lake are magical, and it's a joy to see so many bison hanging out on the... More

Our family along with our best friends from Boise, Idaho decided to visit the park. Bison, and antelope were seen along with original farm. We had a great time. We loved eating at the restaurant at the park and have bison burgers.

Park pamphlet described bighorn sheep, pronghorn antelope and mule deer in addition to bison. Bison are there and the other species are not-we covered a lot of the park! The views of lake are unique; the geologic info about the lake at Visitor's Center is fascinating. The PR people at this park should give an accurate assessment of animal status.
