If you're lucky, there's one experience on a trip you take that is so memorable it's life-changing. Antelope Island was that for us. Our visit was multi-faceted. We stopped at the Visitors Center first--small gift shop, a couple little exhibits, bathrooms. We then headed to...More

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.
