Antelope Island is the way to see Great Salt Lake. LOVELY! We saw bison, coyote, deer, and pronghorn antelope. Drove a great smooth road and took a ton of pix, got something to eat, and went down on the beach. It stinks and the bugs...More

Wanted to give kids a chance to float in the Great Salt Lake, so we headed to Antelope Island. We saw many bison, few pronghorn, two coyotes, and lots of little flies on the beach! No bites, though—we were there on June 16th, 2018. Be...More

Great place to go for a ride, hike or see the Buffalo. There are quite a few hiking trails and if you go in the morning it's cool and you'll have the whole island to yourself.

The park is open from 6:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. if you camp you stay overnight. But the gates are locked. Emergencies are the only exception.

The majority of birds were by the lake. There were a lot of them in the shallow water. I would suggest early morning or evening.
