Antelope Island State Park - Visit Utah

Utah Is A Year-Round Destination…

  • In July and August temperatures can consistently hit highs of between 33-35°C while winter months will experience sub-zero temperatures
  • The best time to visit southern Utah is from April to June and September to October. During this time the days are warm/hot with cool/warm evenings. During spring wildflowers bloom and later in the year the leaves turn and the state is awash with autumnal colours
  • During the peak summer season consider early morning and late afternoon activities to avoid the heat of the middle of the day. Or head to the water for recreational activities on Lake Powell, Bear Lake or the Green or Colorado rivers
  • Ski season begins from the middle of November and runs until April – why not combine ski and winter activities with peace and solitude in the national parks
