Downtown Richfield Utah

Downtown Richfield

Richfield is an important town in central Utah as it's the largest town for 100 miles in any direction. The area is known for hiking and fishing, biking, and ATV trails.

Richfield, Utah

Because of its central location, Richfield can be a perfect spot from which to launch day tours. Folk singer Burl Ives immortalized Big Rock Candy Mountain in song; a twenty-minute drive and you can see the real thing. In 1985 remains of an ancient Fremont settlement were unearthed at Five Fingers Ridge in Clear Creek Canyon.Visit Fremont Indian State Park to see relics from over 100 structures. Another excursion will take you to Fish Lake that draws people from around the world to try their luck at landing trophy-sized Mackinaw trout.

Cultural & Heritage Attractions
The first settlers in the Sevier Valley named their settlement Big Springs, after the life-giving springs in the red-rocked mountains, but later changed the name to Richfield. Other settlements soon followed, but were abandoned during the Black Hawk War of April 1867. Attempts to resettle were not successful until 1870. Sites of historic interest include the Jensen Lime Kiln, Fort Omni and nearby Fremont Indian State Park. The adjacent town of Sigurd was the early-day site of the Cedar Ridge Mountain Battle of the Black Hawk War.

In the Vicinity Cultural & Heritage Attractions

Monroe
In the summer of 1863, a small company of Mormon settlers founded Fort Alma in the southern portion of the Sevier Valley. Due to conflicts with local Native Americans, the fort was abandoned, then re-settled and named Monroe, after the fifth President of the United States.

Cove Fort
In 1867, Cove Fort was built out of volcanic rock and limestone as a way-station for travelers. It has been restored to its original state. The fort is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to sunset, and free, guided tours are available.
