Antelope Island is about an hour's drive north from downtown Salt Lake City and is the ideal spot to get an amazing panoramic view of the Great Salt Lake. The island is nearly 1400 feet above the lake at its highest elevation, but to reach that spot requires some semi-serious hiking. However, at the northwestern tip of the island, there... More

We saw many bison and waterbirds. The landscape was magnificent: mountain, lake, mist above water surface. We also saw a guy proposing and it looked like she said yes!

There is a strip of land they made to get you out to the island. There you will see plenty of bison, antelope and other wildlife, but do not approach them! It is a huge island but you don't need to see it all to see the animals.

We were on our way to Yellowstone via Salt Lake City and were advised by the Utah Visitors Bureau that Antelope Island was a great place to see the Great Salt Lake. It is about a half hour north of downtown Salt Lake City. Once you exit the highway you turn west and travel through commercial and residential area then... More

We were blown away with the scenery..even on the causeway on the way to the island. It was very hazy...we were unsure whether this is normal or not but it made everything feel very out of this world. We got goosebumps a few times just sitting & looking. The bison were lovely big animals...they looked very gentle but we didn't... More

It was rainy & dreary when we were there, we saw lots of birds & watched the rangers round up/move bison from one area to the corrals by helicopter. The gift shop had items that were reasonably priced & visitors center was interesting.

We drove quite a ways out to Antelope Island State Park and were wondering if it was really worth it. It is. After miles of suburban sprawl, you drive out a long causeway with beautiful scenery of the Great Salt Lake, the surrounding mountains, the lovely water and the waterfowl. Then, the island itself is remarkable. Surrounded by all that... More

Visited in late October and saw the Bison being evaluated to determine who stays and who goes before the winter. Excellent hiking and views. I had heard it smells awful at the lake, but I didn't find it to be so bad. If you are coming this time of year, bring plenty of water and food. The concession was closed... More

On the flight into Salt Lake City the day before I talked with a flight attendant about going to the lake. She, being local to SLC, would not recommend it; nothing lives in the lake, there is a foul smell and there are biting bugs. There were better things to in the area. Valid points I'm sure, but we decided... More
