Located 41 miles north of Salt Lake City, Antelope Island is a 28,000 oasis in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. We drove on to the island - 4 people - cost $10 - best value for money of our whole vacation. Opportunity to sight various birds, bison and other animals. On the day of our visit there was a Memorial Day celebration taking place at one of the ranches on the island - opportunity to try our hand at lassoing a static steer, other objects; food was provided at a very economical price and there was a chance to view the accommodation in which the family were raised. It was a wonderful sunny day and the location and overall experience was enjoyable. Those who had been responsible for the setting up of the Park are to be congratulated.

Unfortunately we only had a couple of hours to spend here but we are so glad we went. What a beautiful place, so serene. I definitely would have spent more time here. We saw about 15 bison, which was so cool! Also saw a herd of mule deer, and a couple of pronghorn in the distance. The ranch was also a neat place to visit, the volunteers were very nice. The only bad thing is we saw people walking toward the bison and you could tell the bison were getting agitated.

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 seeing bison and pronghorn antelope in several locations. We enjoyed looking around Fielding Garr Historic Ranch as well. You won’t want to miss this spot!

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 with at least 150 ft between sites which gives vista and privacy. The two loops are staggered so that the upper loop is well above the lower loop and your vista is uninterrupted! I can't remember being in a camp that gives you this feeling of exclusivity and beautiful long distance views over Salt Lake to the pastel mountains beyond. Just add a warm evening breeze coming through the broom bushes and you could believe you are in the Caribbean! There are no services here so fill up your water tanks and make sure your gray and black tanks are empty and we can manage for four or five days! Solar panels help and quiet time from 10 pm to 7 am allow generators plenty of opportunities to recharge except IRS a shame to interrupt the peace! Plenty of wildlife on the island including bison, antelope, deer, and some beautiful song birds who talk to you in the camp! Great visit for $15 a night! Kudos to Utah state parks for designing, setting up and maintaining such an excellent facility and I'm glad to say under-utilized as you really feel like you got away from civilization!

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 in every direction!
The huge bison herd moving across the salt flats with the mountains and lake in the background is unforgettable. The 7-mile causeway drive to and the drive around the island are experiences you don't want to miss.
