Antelope Island provides a nice drive with a chance to see buffalo and various wildlife. It's also a different perspective on Davis County and the Wasatch Front.

We have been staying in Park City, a place that’s a bit “yuppie” for the two of us, and failing to find the joy we found in Yellowstone Park. We began scanning TripAdvisor for ideas and found this amazing park. Yes, there’s a $10 admission...More

While visiting Salt Lake City we found this place about 40 miles from Temple Square. Well worth the drive. A causeway leads you to the island, Plenty of shore birds to see so bring your binoculars. We stayed at Bridger Bay overlooking the Great Salt...More

Great day out. $10 entry. We entered just before 5pm. Didn't see many animals. Views were great though.

The views were worth the 45 min detour from our road trip. Gives you a feel for what you fly over as you approach the SLC airport.

Lots of opportunities for pictures! We saw a ton of bison, pronghorn antelope, etc. I recommend driving to the ranger station first. They had a ton of information and recommendations on what to do on the island. I also recommend going to the old homestead....More

The majority of birds were by the lake. There were a lot of them in the shallow water. I would suggest early morning or evening.

They have not been especially bothersome for me, and I am one of those people who attracts insects of all kinds. I recommend visiting on a breezy day--on those days, bugs will be at a minimum.

If by "around" you mean to circumnavigate the island, no. There basically three paved roads: the one into the park from the mainland, which continues to a viewpoint and campground, a side road to the visitor center, and a... More
