Fountain Green greets you as you top Salt Creek Canyon from Nephi. It began as a popular campground for Salt Creek and San Pitch travelers during the 1850’s before the Johnson’s and other families from Santaquin in Utah Valley settled it. Lying just below the Divide and Mt. Nebo, it had a green fountain “BIG SPRINGS” second to no other spring in the Sanpete Valley.
