Fremont Indian State Park

Sheep Petroglyphs at Fremont Indian State Park in Utah
Fremont Indian State Park is located alongside I-70 in Sevier County, Utah.  The site was discovered in the 1980's when the interstate was constructed in Clear Creek Canyon.  This site was the largest collection of Fremont houses at a single site ever discovered in the state of Utah.  Sadly, most of these were destroyed in the construction.  However there was a great deal of archeological work done and Fremont Indian State Park was created in 1987 to preserve what was left.

There are extensive rock art sites here within easy hiking distance of the parking lot at the park visitor's center.  Most are Fremont petroglyphs.
