Great way to explore nature in your own. No guide is needed. There are information plaques at every site.

We spent an afternoon here- takes about 40 minutes from downtown SLC. We were intrigued by the lake itself (it's dead- no fish live in it). We had no issues with smells nor flies. We were fortunate to see some buffalo roaming about but as...More

If you are visiting Salt Lake City and have a car and a few hours to spare, the trip to Antelope Island is well worth the time. You will see a variety of rock formations, different views of the Great Salt Lake, a traditional farm,...More

If you want to gag stop at the causeway. The smell is overwhelming. We spent sometime chasing the flies. The lake on the otherside was much nicer. Couldn't see the stars as there was too much smoke from wildfires.

We came on a whim in the beginning of a road trip to Yellowstone. We got here about 2 PM. We saw lots of bison and a few pronghorns. There are also plenty of birds. Highly recommend!

We took our daughter and her family to Antelope Island because we were curious to see just what it was. We were not disappointed. It was about dusk and the buffalo were literally out in herds very close to the highway. We also saw antelope,...More

There's really nothing here except a big baron island with view trees. There are some walking trails and good views of the Salt Lake. But after a while all of the views started to look alike and boring. Also, it's a long seemingly endless drive...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.

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.
