At Antelope Island State Park, explore the natural habitats of local wildlife, including one of the largest groups of free-roaming American Bison in the United States. The 11,700 hectares (28,800 acres) of this state park are located on the largest island within the Great Salt Lake, accessed by a two-lane causeway. The park is best known for its scenic views, especially from the northern Buffalo Point and White Rock Bay. Besides viewing antelope, bighorn sheep, deer, and other desert animals, you can experience various recreational activities like camping, bird watching, cycling, and hiking. You can also walk along the white sand beaches of the lake's salty shorelines and swim here, as well).

If you like views, hiking and the outdoors, scenic viewpoints and roughing it than this is your place. No light pollution. Pit toilets in sturdy buildings. It's a great place to see wildlife of all sorts. Visit the historic ranch and have a meal at the island restaurant.
This place was awesome. See the Bison and Antelope roam so closely was a nice surprise. In addition to the views.....I mean definitely a must visit. Even the drive to the island is scenic. We happened to see a Coyote crossing at a shallow point on the lake from the roadway to the island. The driving trails are well maintained. We didn't have time to hike, but plan on returning to hike in the future!
