If you were here in the late 1860's, this quiet setting would be alive with noises from livestock, people, wagons, and water. As you continue along the trail, imagine sights and sounds of busy emigrants crossing the river and camping here.
A Day (or Three) on the New Fork River

With half their journey behind them, most emigrants came to the New Fork River crossing between mid-June and mid-August. Arriving any earlier or later caused hardships at the start or end of the trip. Most arrive in July.
During this short season, several hundred emigrants crossed and camped here each day. Most stayed only one day. During high water it could take a wagon train party two or three days to make this crossing.
