We drove here to hike Frary Peak. Fee to enter park, reasonable. We knew we were in trouble when we read the sign at the entrance “biting gnats have hatched, no refunds.” But we wouldn’t be deterred! Drove to the trailhead, packs on back and...More

Nothing to do here but see Buffalo, antelope, birds, mountains and the lake. What more do you need. Pure, unspoiled beauty. There is a preservation of an old ranch that worked on the island till the state made this a park. If you want little...More

Great place that you must visit if you are around. A very typic landscape with the lake and unic wild animals that you can check realy near you. Great place to get some peace moment also.

Amazing location for birding, wildlife viewing and appreciating Utah’s majesty. Today’s powerful winds rocked the deck at Buffalo Point!!

Easy drive from Salt Lake City, but it seems a world away. $10 per car - if you want to stay late for sunset (or if you are luckier than I was, stargazing at night), get there by 5pm and stay until park closes at...More

(However: I hope that proximity to "the big city" and the restless? hordes escaping from everyone else doesn't over-run nor 'ruin' nor detract from the wilderness-in-the-desert aspect of this place.) I have wanted to go to A. Island ever since I've taken flights to/from the...More

The majority of birds were by the lake. There were a lot of them in the shallow water. I would suggest early morning or evening.

They have not been especially bothersome for me, and I am one of those people who attracts insects of all kinds. I recommend visiting on a breezy day--on those days, bugs will be at a minimum.
