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 Ancestral Puebloans who introduced corn and pottery, making year-round settlements possible.

  • A lot of beautiful hikes (and most are short)! And a lot of cool pictographs and petroglyphs, too! Only drawback is that part of the Centennial Trail is on the side of the road, but not that bad.  more »

  • The staff was very friendly. Today we were able to participate and watch in the Paiute Indian tradition of roasting pine nuts then taking them out of the pine cones to eat. It was great. And Rena, Rick, and their children were very helpful and full of great information and kindness. I loved it. I woke up this morning to go harvest pine nuts. We found the website for the Fremont Indian State Park and the pine nut demonstration and we went and spent 5 hours there. Listening about their heritage and many great stories. But it's a secret still where exactly the pine nuts were picked from but I got a nice bag full. The museum is fun too. They have an exhibit and also offer a movie. They give you a map so you can hike and see petroglyphs and other sites. It costs $8 per car. Go explore this State Park and have fun
  • Always a fun place to visit! We grew up just down the road and have enjoyed visiting this state park. Now I enjoy fishing the stream that runs across the road from it now. Very educational and 4th graders love seeing the history they have here!
