Admire the colorful rock arches and the vast canyon at . The park is part of the Waterpocket Fold, a rare warp in the earth's crust that formed millions of years ago. This warp created the tall, white, sandstone domes that you'll see. Admire the rock art of ancient people in the Capitol Gorge. Explore the park on hiking trails or the gravel roads, keeping an eye out for remnants of early settlers' log cabins. Enjoy fruit from the trees first cultivated by Mormon planters. Begin your day at the visitor center, where you can pay admission and a fee to harvest fruit and purchase a backcountry pass. You can also reserve a campsite here.

  • This Park is very nice with great views, but it's not my favorite Cela remains of course to do during your stay in the American West

  • Don't let the full parking lots turn you away. Circle like a vulture in the Hickman Bridge trail head lot. It's worth the wait and the ups and downs of the trail. 
  • Not your typical busy tourist destination, but one that everyone should visit at least once. Beautiful, peaceful and quiet. 
  • Come for the rocks, buy the pies and jams. Information about Capitol reef and a lot of local home made foods from the historic Fruita orchards.
  • Esta muy interesante
  • Fruita is Neat.

  • Great park and beautiful visitor Center
