Backpack, Camp, Hike, Horseback, and Mountain Bike

Located just 41 miles north of Salt Lake City, Antelope Island State Park encompasses a vast selection of outdoor activities and spectacular scenery providing a peaceful nature experience. Experience stunning 360-degree views as you drive around the State Park or try other activities such as exploring the roughly 20 miles of trails open for hiking, biking, and running or horseback riding. Picnic tables and designated campsites are available though RV hookups are not provided.

Enjoy the water as you kayak, fish, sail, or swim off of the Great Salt Lake’s largest island. Wild animals such as antelope, birds, bison, bobcats, coyotes, deer, and horned sheep roam freely and claim Antelope Island home. Watching the wildlife is a must. Be sure to take caution around wildlife and keep your distance. Do not touch or feed wildlife.

Absorb the beauty of nature through spectacular sunrises, sunsets, and the spectacular night sky. The Visitor Center includes publications, restrooms, and exhibits for all to enjoy. The best times of year for exploring Antelope Island are early spring an late fall. Beware of the bug situation in late spring and early summer. Bug spray is mandatory. Don't forget to bring drinking water as well to stay hydrated during your adventures.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.

Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don't feed the wildlife.

The smell may not be very nice from the Great Salt Lake, but the views and trails you can both hike and bike on Antelope Island are unmatched.

Antelope Island is an awesome place to visit! A friend and I did a hike and were able to see some incredible views. The smell was strong and there were many bugs so it is incredibly important to have bug spray but it was awesome! I would totally go back! I'd love to try a bike ride out there.
