Fremont Indian State Park and Museum is a state park of Utah, US, which interprets archaeological remains of the Fremont culture. The park is located in Sevier County, Utah in the Clear Creek Canyon.The park directly adjoins Interstate 70 as it travels up the Clear Creek Canyon, and thus is highly accessible by auto. The nearest town with full services (motels, etc.) is Richfield. There are campgrounds and RV parks in the area as well.The site was discovered during construction of Interstate 70, and thousands of artifacts have been excavated from the ancient village and put on permanent display at the museum there. The museum offers hiking trails and picnic areas.The Fremont Indians were agriculturalists who lived from about 400 to 1300 in north and central Utah and adjacent parts of Colorado, Idaho and Nevada. The Fremont are thought to have come from hunter-gatherers who previously lived in this location and were influenced by the Ancient Pueblo Peoples who introduced corn and pottery, making year-round settlements possible.

  • Cute sm museum, nice walking trails and very close petroglyphs. They also have a gift shop. Just a fun stop.  more »
  • The combination of professional displays and great short walking trails make this spot a winner. Take the time to chat with the staff to find out about the many local trails to see petroglyphs in situ...  more »
  • One of the nicest visitor center museums I've been to. The petroglyph trail behind the museum isn't too strenuous. Nice picnic area a couple miles east of the museum. Easy on-off I-70.  more »

  • The pretty cool as the sites to see. But I went into the campground to look around take pictures I had the most rude camp host that I had ever met. It's give a guy a gun and watch it go to his head. I personally would not stay there or recommend it . Barney 5 all the way. Want too have fun and enjoy yourselves not be policed up. I also talked with the park director about this camp host and I told him about some ideas I had to help out at the park for his visitor's by putting in some benches tables and some hand rails along some of sites at the park. He told me go down to the visitor's center and leave my contact info at the desk and he would get back with me. I have not heard from him as of yet. It's been three weeks now.
  • Great state park. The visitors center staff was very helpful and informative. My wife and I took the hike by the visitors center to view the rock art and it was fantastic. I've seen rock art in other parts of the West and the world. This is some of the best. It's a must see.
  • Great displays and gift/souvenir shop. Outside is a short hike to some ancient petroglyphs. We missed this part because of strong winds, but will come again for sure!
  • We stopped here for a picnic on the way to St. George. I wanted Hardee's 🍔🍔🍟🍟back in Salina, but the Lil General 🌟🌟🌟🌟 insisted on a scenic stop with great views and fresh air !?!? There were some hiking trails, but who has time for that ??? 🕐🕜🕑 Clean restrooms.
  • If you are interested in the Fremont Indian culture, this is a great stop. Most of the park is to be explored on your own- many of the petroglyphs and pictographs are unmarked. If you want the National Park experience of driving up to a sight and stretching your elbows for a picture, then hopping back in your car, this isn't the place for you. But if you want a more relaxed atmosphere, the park is great. Don't forget to stop and talk to the park rangers. They have lots of insights and useful information for exploring the area.
