  • Tranquility and relax in the mormonske settlement originally. In the gifford House you can buy homemade pie or bread and make the river's picnic in stinu trees, or check out the forge or schools.

  • Love this place and the price...! Can’t go wrong. Come at fruit picking time and you won’t go hungry. Pie next door is great too.
  • For the tent camper who wants some amenities and easy access to the most popular attractions in the park this is a great options. There is even a "tent only" area that is an open lawn with scattered cottonwood trees. The bathrooms in the middle of loop B are heated. If you go in the fall the orchards allow you to pick the fruit on the honor system $2 per lb.
  • Overall this is a very beautiful campground. However, if you are one that prefers more isolated camping, this is not for you. The camp sites are right on top of one another offering little to no privacy. So I rated this one star only because I prefer more private, isolated camping sites.
  • Beautiful campground with nice bathrooms, a table and a firepit. The campground is right next to the amphitheatre, where the rangers have talks very often. I learned something about astronomy, which was really nice.
  • Nice campground. Just basic amenities

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.
