It was late March 2022, and we are RVing through northwestern Utah and wanted to check out the world-famous Great Salt Lake. The best way to do that looked like a stop at Antelope Island State Park.

Luckily the state park Bridger Bay campground looked like it had large pull-thru sites that would easily accommodate our 30-foot fifth wheel and 21-foot pickup truck.

They had two loops open, no hookups, and water/electric hookups. There is a nearby brand new two-lane dump station and freshwater fill. Off-season rates were $20 and $30, respectively. I believe that come April, camping costs will be ten dollars higher. Anyway, the campsites are terrific! Plenty of room spaced well apart with metal shelter, tables, and firepits.

 The only real negatives I’ve heard about is that, at times, the flies and no-see-um bugs can get out of hand, and the lake can smell bad. But, usually, that is later on in the season as the temps start to warm up. They weren’t a problem during our early spring stay.

In this video, I have footage of the camping area and gorgeous scenery from our driving and hiking explorations around Antelope Island. I also take a trek across the vast beach to the edge of the Great Salt Lake. It was a calm evening, and the lake was glassy smooth with reflections making for a fantastic scene.

One highlight of the visit was the wildlife. The island has seen almost no development. It’s a haven for many animals, with lots of birds, bighorn sheep, pronghorn, mule deer, jackrabbits, etc., and even a herd of Bison. One evening a giant Bison wandered right through our campsite!
