Islands of the Great Salt Lake Rock art created by members of the pre-Columbian Fremont Culture may be seen at Antelope Island State Park. Visitor access is provided via seven-mile causeway spanning from mainland Syracuse out to the island. Excavated artifacts reveal the Puebloan people inhabited the islands more than 6,000 years ago and in some areas of northwestern Utah's deserts.
