We spent a few hours there on the road from SLC to Yellowstone. We are happy we did. This is an amazing beautiful park with artistic views. Worth half or full day trip.

We went here on Labor day and thought it would have been busier, but it wasn't. It is a fantastic place with a beach, lots of wildlife including antelope, deer, and Bison, and the drive is very peaceful. This is a great get-away place if...More

I have lived in this area most of my life. Antelope island is full of bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. It smells as well. There isn't that much to see. There are a few sandy places that are great for picture taking but that's...More

It costs ten dollars ($10.00) for entry into this park. One takes a long causeway to enter this park. I found the park to be difficult to navigate due to what I found to be ambiguous signage and maps, but I gave myself a lot...More

We were debating making the drive to Antelope and are so glad that we did. It was beautiful, not crowded at all, and has a lot of history. The drive throughout the park is super nice, and you get to see a ton of wildlife....More

Driving over a causeway to get there, we arrived early so there were hardly any other vehicles. For $10 per car, this was a superb day out. The visitor centre was great, with leaflets galore on everything to do. We saw two herds of bison...More

This island is outstanding. The views everywhere are fantastic and we saw pronghorn antelope, bison and many types of birds. The visitor center contained very informative displays and a good movie about the island. The best park was that the island was uncrowded and the...More

Plan at least a half day at the park with two hours to swim. Yes you actually float and can swim near the boat docks or on the west side of the lake. However, June is a bit early for swimming since the water will be very... More

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.
