For centuries Wasatch Indians visited this island frequently for it's game of fish and antelope. It was eventually discovered by the explorer John C. Fremont and Kit Carson in 1845, naming it Antelope Island. In 1848 Fielding Garr settled his family here which was stilll inhabited till the State of Utah bought the property in 1981, making a recreational park for all to enjoy. The island is surround by the Great Salt Lake beauty of inland sea. It has lots to offer the day tripers as well as those who want to venture in camping, biking (8 mile loop), wildlife viewing (antelope, deer, bobcats, coyotes and a huge variety of birds, sailing (marina), and hiking (many trails to enjoy). There is a very nice area for picnicing, bathrooms facilities, sunbathing, and should experience floating like a cork in the salt water. The island even has a eating establishment, but its only open during a certain during the seasons.
