I totally misjudged the proper amount of time needed. This island is so much bigger than it looked on the map. If you are staying in nearby Salt Lake City, you will need to figure driving time to get there, so if you want to...More

The island was gorgeous. Loved how it has been preserved with no development. It’s very arid and the landscape feels like you’re in a remote country. If you’re interested in hiking, recommend going to the visitor center to get the ranger hiking tips. They broke...More

If I could give this a million stars, I would! This place is incredible! It's moody and gorgeous. Drive toward the ranch for good views of the free-roaming bison. Do the Ladyfinger and the Buffalo Point trails. Both are short and offer fantastic views. It...More

This was a decent state park to visit. I am not as much of an outdoor person as my friend that I was with is, though. He loved it. It is a good way to spend a few hours, but if you like hiking, you...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.

They have not been especially bothersome for me, and I am one of those people who attracts insects of all kinds. I recommend visiting on a breezy day--on those days, bugs will be at a minimum.
