Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Make sure to stop by the Fielding Garr Ranch House, originally built in 1848 and inhabited until 1981. Artifacts, self-guided tours and horseback riding are available.
  • Antelope Island is a perfect place to try out the beaches and swimming in the Great Salt Lake. The salinity level is much higher than ocean salt water so swimmers are extremely buoyant, however the briny-smelling water can be a little too overbearing for some.
