So close to the Wasatch Front, but a world away ~ Visit Antelope Island State Park, the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. View a free-roaming herd of 500 bison, and pronghorn and bighorn sheep that share the rangelands. Hike, mountain bike or horseback ride along backcountry trails for spectacular views of Great Salt Lake and island scenery. Check in at the visitor center for maps and information on the island's unique biology, geology and history.
Plan your trip to coincide with one or a few of the fun and educational events we offer throughout the year - We have campfire programs, historical activities at Fielding Garr Ranch, star parties, Junior Ranger programs for children, and art and photography exhibits. Check our event calendar frequently for new additions.
ATTENTION: Biting gnats (no-see-ums) are bad on the island April - June. Most bug repellents do not keep bugs away, but mosquito-netting hats may help.
