    Not too many petroglyphs on this site. But, it is next to the highway and well maintained.

    I find seeing the art of the ancient tribes from this region absolutely fascinating! Note that it takes some amount of concentration to find the numerous examples on the rock face so be patient and look carefully.

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'llĀ also find a few motels between the town and the park entrance.
