We had a couple of hours in this beautiful park. It's only 45mins from SLC and well worth the drive. The 6 mile causeway to access the park is an incredible way to get to the park (entrance was only $10 per car). We saw bison incredibly close after the park ranger at the entrance told us which way to... More

We went after a day of skiing. It was $10 per car. We got to see over 100 of the 5-700 buffalo. We also got to see 2 coyotes and 7 or so mule deer. It was amazing! They also have a farm but it closes at 5 so we weren't able to get a tour. Amazing sunset though it... More

I wasn't expecting much, but this blew me away. With this amount of snow and daylight, getting down to Bryce or Zion isn't a realistic day trip from SLC. So I opted for antelope Island and was blown away. It's an easy drive - the stretch across the causeway is great, I did it in misty conditions with snow resting... More

While in the Salt Lake City area I urge you to take a trip out to this island. We only had a couple hours and in hind sight realized that was just not enough time. Luckily we saw two small herds of bison and were able to stop at the ranch. Would be a great place to bike and hike.... More

I've been here a few times and its always something different. Always go for the Buffalo herd but look for all the other wildlife and waterfowl. In summer you can take a dip (float) in the Great Salt Lake and in the fall you can watch all the modern day cowboys and girls assemble for a great Buffalo/Bison roundup. Great... More

An absolute must see if you are in Utah! We discovered Antelope Island while on vacation in Utah. We wanted to see the Great Salt Lake up close, but didn't realize there was so much more to the area. The area is breathtaking. You can drive along many different roads and pathways. You can even park and go out to... More

There is lots of wildlife on the island, you just have to look for it. We drove on the road along the eastern side and thought, there is nothing here. But on the way back stopped and took more time, turns out there were lots of bison, a couple bald eagles flying around and two coyotes crossed the road in... More

Awesome science of the Salt Lake. So many Buffalo! Interesting for the kids. Great place for a picnic. So much history and amazing to see old homes on the "island".

Person at the entrance was friendly and helpful. It was fun to explore the ranch. But mostly, loved seeing bison, coyotes and antelope roaming free. Was a bit stunned by the "grill" offering buffalo burgers - just seems to me like there is something wrong with this picture - did I just take a picture of this animal that we... More

Spent about an hour driving around the island. Another hour hiking up a short ridge. Then another hour walking out into the salt lake. Saw lots of buffalo and a few deer. Felt kind of like a "mini safari."
