    This imperative 4 x 4 ride is just magic but beware, the path is not easy, the crossing of the River, the part in get on this earth furnished, impassable in wet weather, and this vertiginous descent in stones Yes a 4 x 4 is better, but in any case a high guard is on!

Where to stay in Capitol Reef National Park

Capitol Reef National Park does not offer lodging beyond its campground, so many visitors opt to stay in the town of Torrey just to the west along Route 24. Economy motels, some of which are part of national chains and others of which are locally owned, dominate the list of options, but a few inns and bed and breakfasts are available too. Torrey has a couple of dining establishments, adding to the convenience of staying here. You'll also find a few motels between the town and the park entrance.
