Cool scenery but the bugs kind of ruin it. Be prepared to get eaten alive by mosquitos!

Amazing views especially if you go at sunset. Watching the sun set over the Great Salt Lake is really beautiful. Bison a few yards from the trail were a nice diversion from the sunset.

this place should really be named "bug island" or "bison island" instead.

Amazing island! Just watch out for those bugs. I went April 14th and it was in the 50s so the bugs weren't too bad. But I can't imagine it being tolerable with anymore

Beautiful hiking with lots of trails. Got a late start to the day- so while had only few hours to hike, had awesome sunset views over the lake as the sun was setting. Will absolutely go back again.
There April 2: mosquitoes were annoying at lower elevation, not so much the higher we climbed. Considering it was still getting into the 30s at night- I can well imagine bugs could be an issue in warmer months.
Saw plenty of buffalo, birds. No antelope sadly.
The geology of the island itself is fascinating. You can literally see/feel the the evolution of the island while walking.

A very visually interesting place to drive around and then get out and walk in a few places. Great for some landscape photography. I saw one buffalo and no antelope.

Absolutely beautiful island. The wildlife and the views of the lake are stunning. You can hike pretty much anywhere around the island and there are a few lookout points that are nice. Also a great place to bring dogs since it's so open.

However, do NOT go during bug season! I thought September would be late enough to avoid the bugs but I was wrong. I have never seen so many bugs! At night the swarms were so dense we couldn't do anything, including eat dinner or hang out outside of our tent. Would definitely recommend going when there are less bugs, maybe later in the season.
