Things To Do

Overview

Fremont Indian State Park was established to preserve Clear Creek Canyon's treasury of rock art and archaeological sites. Visit the museum in the visitor center where a video program introduces you to the Fremont Indians. Twelve interpretive trails, one accessible to wheelchairs, lead you into legend and history depicted through pictographs and petroglyphs. Also enjoy rock art, interpretive trails, fishing, horseback riding. Discover artifacts, petroglyphs, and pictographs left behind by the Fremont Indians. During construction of Interstate 70, the largest known Fremont Indian village was uncovered. This museum preserves treasures from the site, including pottery, baskets, and arrowheads. Spend a day at the museum, and then camp at nearby Castle Rock Campground. The park is 21 miles southwest of Richfield on Interstate 70 (Exit 17) in central Utah. Fishing, hiking, camping and picnicking are available.
