The park recommends visitors do not swim, wade for long periods, or ingest water from the Fremont River because E. coli bacteria are routinely detected at frequencies greater than Utah water quality standards. Sources of E. coli may include runoff from agricultural, grazing, and urban land, and human and wildlife waste.
From late spring through early fall, the campground sprinklers may be left on for up to 24 hours for the survival of the grass.
If a sprinkler is impacting your campsite, contact the campground hosts if the problem persists.
