    There are a few buildings related to the pioneer period but not as many as I'd hoped for and they are not staffed so you don't get a good feel for how they were used and the hardships faced on a daily...  more »

    Great stop, clean bathrooms nice sites. You must go to the store and buy a pie or cinnamon roll.

    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!

    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.

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.
