The park is best known for its scenic views, especially from the northern Buffalo Point and White Rock Bay.

  • the winter is the best time to go to Antelope Island, otherwise the bugs are terrible. Bring your deet and be prepared to picnic in your car. The visitors center is fun 
  • This was a pleasant surprize that was very easy to get to and very affordable. I think $10 for a whole carload of visitors, with discounts offered for others. It is a well known island on the Great Sa...  read more »
  • This is a place where anyone can easily escape the busy life. You will have pleasant atmosphere with decent environment 
  • If you have never been here it is worth at least one trip. Free range buffalo and antelope. Beach area with a burger shack. Fun to walk to the water with family and enjoy the views. Not always the best smelling place but entertaining.
  • Nice place to bike, hike and bird watch. They have some primitive campsites. I'm not too fond of the Great Salt Lake because of the horrible smell which definitely affects Antelope Island-so, I won't be camping here. Wonderful employees and volunteers that act as Park guides and Trail guides. Fun place to visit to see Antelope the occasional Bighorn , bison and good views of the migrating birds stopping to eat the brine shrimp in the lake. They have fun informative historical and nature hikes as well as fun filled activities during pioneer days for children.
  • Pick small hikes otherwise you will die of inanition. You can see bisons in many places of the island. The water was crystal clear full of baby shrimp so don't swallow that water you might get your skin exfoliated tho.
  • Our young kids loved the soft sand. Bring beach toys. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the afternoon there. Bathrooms are safe and clean enough for families. Great place to take pictures! $10 entry fee
  • Antelope Island. Ssw one buffalo feeding. Lake seems to be dried up i had to walk about half mile to reach the watèr. The hills were on fire so the south side was closed.
