Island has something for all ages
Antelope Island State Park is the best place to experience the Great Salt Lake – also known as America’s Dead Sea. Four rivers feed into the Great Salt Lake, which has no outlet, leaving it with high concentrations of minerals and making it five times saltier than the ocean.
Antelope Island is home to 250 species of birds and is a major link in the Pacific Flyway between North and South America. Visitors can ride horseback, ride bikes or hike to see big horn sheep, bison, mule deer and, of course, pronghorn antelope. The 28,000-acre island is home to a herd of more than 500 bison. The Annual Bison Roundup is held each year in October. Over 200 expert and novice horsemen and horsewomen assist in the roundup each year.
Many inexperienced riders have saddled up with experienced guides and well-trained horses to schedule a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of the Antelope Island Bison Roundup. Schedule your adventure at stateparks.utah.gov.
