Welcome to Antelope Island State Park
The largest island in the Great Salt Lake is home to a 500-strong herd of American bison, or buffalo. The fall roundup, for veterinary exams, is a thrilling spectacle. Also making their year-round home here are burrowing owls and raptors, as well as namesake antelope, bighorn sheep and deer.
Nineteen miles of hiking trails provide many opportunities to view wildlife; however, some trails are closed during mating and birthing seasons. In addition to an 8-mile driving loop, there's a white, sandy beach to the south on Bridger Bay with basic facilities and showers.
