We decided to include this park/the island in our vacation plans and are glad we did. What a peaceful, delightful place to visit. There is camping, but no other services here except a visitor center. We enjoyed the hiking opportunities, the beauty, the quiet, and...More

Decided on the spur of the moment while running south to escape snow at higher elevations to stop at Antelope Island for a few days. What a delight it is! The campsite at Bridger Bay has some thirty pads laid out in a long loop...More

On the way to north Utah from SLC on I-15, we took a side trip to Antelope Island State Park. Having been warned not to go, our experience totally contradicted what we had read and heard about this place. We found amazing, beautiful photo opportunities...More

Where else can you go and have to stop your car for a buffalo free ranging? Best views of great Salt Lake. Very peaceful with great lookout points. Well worth the trip.

We went here in September, 2017. Our guide was a friend who had been there many times and he was shocked that there were not more buffalo on the drive into the Garr ranch, but they were just in other areas of the park. Even...More

We took an afternoon ride out to Antelope Island and it was lovely. The Great Salt Lake is beautiful to look at (although not to smell), and the surrounding landscape is equally gorgeous. We saw lots of bison and the setting sun cast amazing colors...More

Did a sunrise hike partway up the Frary Peak Trail and were rewarded with gorgeous sunrise, the sky and surroundings changing colors by the minute. The smell that others talked about was intense but was very localized. We drove through it in about 2 minutes....More

If you are visiting SLC, and like to take in nature then go check out Antelope Island State Park. The drive there is beautiful as you got through a stretch to the island where you can see the salt flats. The Island itself is great...More

This is a great half day trip. The landscapes and view of Salt Lake are very interesting. The old ranch was worth touring. It must have been very desolate at the turn of the century.

Antelope Island State Park is a great place to view some local Animals and learn about Utah History at the Fielding Garr Ranch on the South End of the Island. The visitor center is well presented. Take your time and explore the Island.

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.

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.

If by "around" you mean to circumnavigate the island, no. There basically three paved roads: the one into the park from the mainland, which continues to a viewpoint and campground, a side road to the visitor center, and a... More
