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.
