Antelope Island is the largest of several islands on the Great Salt Lake in northern Utah. Reached from the mainland by an at-water-level causeway, the island is 15 miles long and 4.5 miles wide.
It is home to, and on the migration path of, many species of waterfowl including the California seagull and American Avocets. It also has a large free-roaming bison population of more than 500.
There are forty miles of hiking trails on the island and paved roads that allow fun exploration. Ranch Road, which runs north to south nearly the length of the island, ends at Fielding Garr Ranch, a working sheep turned cattle ranch named after the first settler on the island.
A visitor's center and marina are located on the north end of the island, as well as a campground. One would probably need no more than a day to visit the complete island, unless some hiking was done. There's only one lace on the island to get food: at the Buffalo Grill on Bridger Beach.
