There are some great views of the Salt Lake and you can see the bison right out in front of you. It's definitely worth going and checking out for a day trip.

We went to visit Antelope Island and unfortunately there was a fire burning on the island. This means that most of the island was off limits while they were fighting the fire. There are many birds to see. We had fun watching the gulls eat the no-see-ums. We were able to see a couple bison from a distance, as well... More

Visited antelope island where they have a 600 head plus or minus herd of bison, a few antelope etc. I would say we saw 1-200 bison a handful of antelope and a few tourists soaking in the lake. I really wanted to see their bision handling facility but you cannot get that close. The visitors center is a nice stop.... More

We flew into Salt Lake City airport and had a few hours to kill before being able to check into our hotel. We chose to take in the Great Salt Lake and Antelope Island is a perfect place to do that. There is a check in before entering the island that requires a small admission fee and then about a... More

I went to Antelope Island for my very first time on July 15th and stayed at their Bridger Bay Camp Ground which is located on the Northwest side of the island. The views /sunsets from this camp ground are breathtaking. Bridger Bay Camp Ground has several camp sites and 2 outhouses. Antelope Island has 3 camp sites for solo, groups,... More

This state Park offers access to a desert wilderness in the middle of a thriving urban area and you get the benefit of swimming in one of the saltiest bodies of water in the nation. Take a change of clothing and jump in for a great time.

The views of Salt Lake were wonderful. We took the time to hike up the short, 0.4 mile, Buffalo Point trail and were rewarded with panoramic views of the lake. With a 10 and 11 year old we weren't going to brave the longer trails on a 100+ degree afternoon so this shorter hike was the perfect amount of adventure!

Very cool to go out to the island in the Salt Lake. The true treat is seeing the large herd of bison! Up close views. The Salt Lake was interesting. I wanted to put my feet in but couldn't get close enough without being swarmed by native brine flies! My husband was braver but they are intense this time of... More

Being a senior we got in the park for $5. We especially enjoyed the Fielding Garr ranch. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. We saw several lone bison but were thrilled when we saw a huge herd. We had heard that it was buggy but we did not have a problem, it could be the time of year or the... More

Wow! After returning to Salt Lake City from Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, I expected this trip to be little more than a filler as we waited for an evening flight. So, imagine my delight when we discovered amazing bird habitat, bison and antelopes just miles from SLC. We wanted to see the lake (and the views of the lake were... More
