Nephi, Utah

There is an RV park in Nephi and more primitive camping facilities are available in the mountains to the east.

The founders of Nephi were Joseph L. Haywood and Jesse W. Fox who quickly and industriously laid out the design for the town which they intended to call Salt Creek. The current name is that of a prophet and patriarch from the early history of the Mormon people and has been in force since the city's incorporation in 1889.

Agriculture was the first industry and its success was quickly followed by the mining of salt, thanks to the town's location at the mouth of Salt Creek Canyon. This industry died out around 1925 because of the increasing numbers of larger competitors located on the edges of the Great Salt Lake which is a major geographical feature of the state.

The Great Salt Lake is a leftover of the ancient Lake Bonneville. It has four feeder rivers and a number of streams but no outlet, resulting in a concentration of minerals, made even more potent through evaporation. The very salty water makes for excellent buoyancy for the swimmer. Popular lake activities include sailing, kayaking, swimming and sunbathing on the clean white sand. There is a unique brine shrimp which thrives in the lake but the flesh is not edible for humans and is used instead for other fish. The water level lf the lake varies greatly because of swings in the wet and dry spells.
