Rich in scenic beauty and natural features, Antelope Island is the perfect place to view the Great Salt Lake and get a taste of the vast open spaces found in the Great Basin. The serene white sands are perfect for sunbathing and basking in the beauty of the surroundings. There are activities like kayaking, sailing and glorious scenes like unforgettable sunrises and sunsets. Deer, bobcats, coyotes, many varieties of birds and waterfowl call the island home. But most famous are Antelope Island's American Bison, introduced to the island in 1893 and now numbering some 600 animals.

Antelope Island State Park Reviews & Ratings
Oh my heck! It turned into a windstorm... two tents ended up on the other side of the island! I never laughed so hard. Gotta love the unexpected.
I live in Utah Davis county, but it's been quite a few years since I've been here. I really enjoy the nature and wildlife.
Great recreation place to go with your family. Kids will love it. Don't forget to check out white Rock island it's on the south side of the island. But to many spiders to actually get on it. Creepy. Unless they died during that bad fire a couple of years ago. 🌞 my son and I had fun playing in the clear water out there by the island ❤
Beautiful views was hoping to see more buffalo's or animals the views made up for it
It was awesome we had a great time with our antique trucks what a great place for a visit!!
