The Antelope Island Bison Roundup — A Taste of the Ol’ West

Corral the bison in a one-day event to preserve the animals and ecosystem on the island

  • Add the Antelope Island Bison Roundup to your Bucket List

    Think back to the “Old West” with the settlers and cowboys that lived in Utah’s plains. This event was derived from the need to preserve the species and protect Antelope Island’s ecosystem. Why? Because Antelope Island — true to its name — is an island in the Great Salt Lake and the bison can’t leave on their own.

    What does that mean for you? Held in October, you can be one of 250 riders or one of over 1,000 spectators. After more than 30 years of this event, riders round up the bison on horseback, approach wildlife safely and experience this unique opportunity. Riders young and old, new and experienced — we are calling you! Come corral the bison with us.
