Welcome to Antelope Island State Park!
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.

The 2023 Shed Antler Hunt on Antelope Island State Park has been cancelled. Following the die-off of sheep in 2019, a new population of 25 sheep was reestablished in 2020. In October of 2022 an additional 25 sheep were brought in from Arizona. These sheep come from an area where lambing occurs later in the year and the sheep have not fully adjusted to the island’s timetable when vegetative resources are at their peak. In order to maximize the opportunity to increase the bighorn population this year, it is critical that we minimize disturbing the ewes during the final months of their pregnancies. It is anticipated that as the sheep adjust to the vegetative timetable of the island, their breeding and lambing schedule will also shift, allowing us to resume the shed hunt in the future. Thank you for your support and understanding. If you have any further questions, please reach out to the Park Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
Closure: To protect nesting birds, Egg Island and White Rock are closed to access year-round.
