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.
Closure: To protect nesting birds, Egg Island and White Rock are closed to access year-round.

Upcoming Road Closure:
On Wednesday, September 9, the east side road to Fielding Garr Ranch will be closed until about 3:00 p.m. to host USA Cycling’s Masters Bike Race Time Trials.
