Explore the largest island in the Great Salt Lake.

Antelope Island is about a two-hour drive northwest of Salt Lake City, Utah. Antelope Island is 15 miles long and 5 miles wide, and it was first discovered by Kit Carson and John C. Fremont in 1848. The island includes 40 freshwater springs that sustain the abundant wildlife. Please be aware that this state park is home to free-roaming wildlife, such as bison, bighorn sheep, mule deer, antelope, and various birds. From March to October, the park is open from 6 am to 10 pm and from 7 am to 7 pm during the off-season.

Visitors often enjoy scenic hikes, sunbathing, swimming, and floating in the Great Salt Lake. Antelope Island State Park also offers e-bike tours. Campgrounds are available for those who want to extend their stay. There is no shuttle service, so please plan ahead if you take an Uber or Lyft to get here. The visitor center is open from 10 am to 4 pm. If you've worked up an appetite, stop for a bite to eat at the Buffalo Grill, which is open from March through November. The park is also home to the historic Fielding Garr Ranch, located in the southeastern part of the island. This ranch was built back in 1848 and was the first permanent residence on the island. If you're visiting Salt Lake City, Utah, stop by Antelope Island State Park before you go.
