Antelope Island State Park
Antelope Island State Park offers grasslands, sand dunes, beaches, a marina and a wildlife refuge. The 15 mile long island provides trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Camping sites are available, and those staying overnight on the island have better odds of spotting some of the park's wildlife, including buffalo, deer and a variety of bird life. Auto access is through Syracuse. Drivers should take I-15 north to exit 335 and head west nine miles to the island causeway.
I Love Antelope Island ..Yes it's buggy but spray does it's job, One of the most scenic places ..$9 dollar entrance to the park and worth every penny ! I was able to get very close to the Buffalo stayed in the car but I didn't want too : ) a New Grill Opened up Called Buffalo Island Grill ..MMM Very fair pricing on the food Terry and Judy run the grill and and they Know how to Feed you.. They don't imitate or substitute. I've chosen to pay the park entrance fee just to eat there! Biking trails hiking trails photo opportunities, Wild Life, serenity , powder soft sand..I could not find anything bad to say about Antelope island ..I am on my way again : ) I'll meet you there!, If we don't meet there at least be sure to stay long enough to watch the sunset OMG : D
It was fun to visit to say I had been there, but nothing too exciting. I liked learning about it. It was hot and it is almost sad that they call it the "Great" Salt Lake when I didn't see anything great about it. It is such a waste of water. If you are a water person, it makes you want to cry that there is so much water and no use for it. After visiting the mountains yesterday, this was a disappointment today. It is now $9 a car to get in, and I thought that was fine. There is only one place to eat and it is expensive, so take a picnic lunch. It's worth visiting once, but it's not a place I would frequent.
It is the most beautiful island I have ever seen. It is the true nature with astonishing view, especially on sunset. variety of animals and plants. The best is camping. I will spent a week next visit. It is a ideal spiritul land.
Antelope Island is very close to urban space yet it affords visitors with plenty of natural scenery and abundant flora and fauna. I like the fact that with just a little patience you can identify an average of ten to fifteen different animal species per visit. I have used the island for over 35 yrs. and the improvements continue. Walking, hiking, biking, driving, boating, food, facts, etc. it has it all. A trip NOT to be missed any time of the year.
Last weekend we went as a family to Antelope Island. Being new to the area we were unawarer of the lovely little creatures called Brine Flies that land on your heads to feast. Boy those itch!!!!!!! Other than the annoyance of those bugs, the sights were beautiful and breathtaking. We saw antelope, bison, jack rabbits, a field mouse, a snake, birds, horses, and an owl. Make sure to take the time to visit the Garr Ranch. It's worth the little extra drive to get there.
Yes, there are buffalo there, and other wildlife. The state has spent time and money to develop the island, and insure the island will not be effected by the vistors on land or animals. A great attraction for a afternoon.
I camped here once as a boy scout. I circled the island on foot to scout out any buffalo. I never saw one.
Theres usally a heck of a lot of bugs, especially ones that cover your car driving in.
And I can't believe they actually charge you $$$ to see this place.
And why do they call it antelope island?
I LOVE Antelope Island! The coyotes, the jackrabbits, the bison! I love it all. The island is my spiritual center in Utah. Please contact the Utah legislature and tell them that you DO NOT WANT people to be allowed to hunt the (semi-tame) deer and antelope on the island!
