Description

Antelope Island State Park is just over 28,000-acres and is the largest island in the Great Salt Lake. It sits between the Wasatch mountains on the east and the Sierra Nevada mountains to the west. Visitors will have the opportunity to hike, bike, and explore the wildlife in the area. The backcountry trails are open to horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and mountain biking. Even though the area is surrounded by salt water, the island has fresh water springs which support the local wildlife. Bison, Pronghorn antelope, Mule deer, bighorn sheep, coyotes, badgers, and bobcats are a few of the wildlife that roam the island. Visitors may also see owls, hawks, or a falcon. The land passed through several owners until 1981 when the State of Utah purchased the land. During the month of May and June, there are biting gnats so a hat or other protective barrier for your face and neck is recommended. Visit Antelope Island State Park on your next outdoor adventure!
