Hike, mountain bike or horseback ride the park’s backcountry trails for spectacular views of lake and island scenery; spend a star-filled night in one of several primitive campsites; stroll along sandy beaches and take a dip in the lake’s salty waters or step back in time with a visit to the Historic Fielding Garr Ranch. Antelope Island is home to free-ranging bison, mule deer, bighorn sheep, pronghorn (antelope), and many other desert animals. Millions of birds congregate along the shores surrounding the island, offering unparalleled opportunities for birding. Year round Interpretive opportunities round out the Antelope Island experience.

Due to the Bison Roundup, all back-country trails will be closed Saturday, October 22. Buffalo Point, Lakeside Trail and Ladyfinger Point will remain open.
West Antelope Island Fire:
All trails are now open. Please use the area responsibly and stay on trails to avoid further impact and damage to an already damaged area.
In total, 15,111 acres burned during the July 22-25, 2016 lightning caused fire. There were no losses or injury to wildlife. Although this was a very large fire, there are still thousands of acres unaffected by the fire which serve as critical habitat for wildlife. Range managers are working on reseeding efforts at this time.
Closure: To protect nesting birds, Egg Island and White Rock are closed to access year-round.
Insects: For an update on what’s out and what to prepare for, check our Current Conditions.
