Antelope Island, which is on the south end of Great Salt Lake, is the largest island in the lake. It is a 28,240-acre refuge for huge amounts of wildlife. The island is approximately 15 miles long and 5 miles wide. The size of the island depends on the level of the lake; at low levels, the island becomes a peninsula. The island is primarily a grassland community, with several species of grass. The island consists of several flat slope areas (39%), with 34% medium slopes, and 27% of the island is steep slopes. The lake is outlined with beautiful white sand beaches and wetlands. Frary Peak is the highest point on the island and is 6,596 feet above sea level: That is over 2,000 feet above the lake level. Over forty major freshwater springs and numerous smaller springs are found on the island.
These are just a few of the animals that live on Antelope Island – 700 Bison, 500 mule deer, 230 pronghorn antelope, 120 California big horn sheep, coyotes, jack rabbits, cottontail rabbits, badgers, bobcats, kangaroo rats, mice, red fox, chukar partridge, lizards, and snakes (gopher, blue racer, garter– none of which are poisonous).
