  • Fruita is indeed at the beginning of the scenic drive through the Capitol Reef National Park, but it feels as if it were midnight indeed. The place itself is quiet, but very interesting and worth seeing.

  • The fall is recommended. Near the camping site near the visitor center at unattended payment depending on the weight you can pick fruit and apple orchards. Mixed with the deer eat windfall apples in Apple picking fun ~ ^ ^ too long since I wrote the harvest calendar for each season is different depending on the seasonal fruits and nuts hunt as the previously came to was this 11-visit. Learning the history of the early settlers, views, searching for ancient murals, and encounter animals such as deer, Turkey,, Bryce Canyon and around other of no glitz, such as major national park, as well as want to come like most I lump is where you can.

  • This is an awesome camp spot! We stayed two nights in November and there were still lots of other adventurers to have fun with. Many trail heads within walking distance. The park ranger was awesome. Kids did the jr ranger program and we did a moonlight hike with the ranger. This is a great stay!
  • Loved this camp site. Nessled in the canyon, this historical site still has the house from the orginal land owners. It is now a gift shop with the best pies and cinnamon rolls. Horses and a walking path complete the experience.
  • Campground was good. But the park was unbelievable. Historic Fruita is a truly unique experience. Don't miss the natural bridge or the petroglyphs. Great for a night or two between Moab and Bryce. The scenic drive was awesome too!
  • Awesome sceberybto wake up to and close to some awesome sites. Brushing up on the history of the area will make the experience even better
  • Great camping spot. Tons of trees make for a mostly shaded area, and overall despite how busy it may get there never seems to be too much noise. Short hike away from the visitors center and very close to the scenic drives.
