  • The road travels through part of the Park, through mountains to thousand cuttings and shades of colors. In March, the snow adds cachet by highlighting each relief, each depression. Many opportunities to walk. We were a bit rushed, but due to travel it by car was a real pleasure. Feel free to make the detour...

  • 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.

  • 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.
