  • Old Mormon homestead, an oasis in the desert. Interesting history, orchards, nice hike along the river, and a great place to get pie or have a picnic! Special feature of this NP  more »

  • Stopped here on a photo tour and was treated to lots of great composition. Old house, backlit yellow cottonwood trees, mule deer, expansive vistas, you name it, it was all here. The best was the pies,...  more »

  • Not sure if the pies are so good because of the hiking I did before I ate it or it is just good... Either way I really enjoy the Apple pie and the peach pie (I only tasted the peach, I didn't eat two).
  • We bought 3 pies and we learned afterwards that all fruits and pies are imported from Texas. Besides I asked if there was cinnamon in the pies as I can't have it. I have been told no (except for the Apple pie) but there is cinnamon in every pie.. So the people working there do not even now what are the famous pies made of... Overall we are also disappointed by the industrial taste..
  • Very low stress, quiet place to stop and take a break. Homemade pies & ice cream. Stopped here while traveling through Utah on a motorcycle trip. Glad I did. Cool scenery and off the beaten path. Kinda reminded me of where they filmed The Hills Have Eyes! :)
  • Great tourist stop where they sell homemade goods and fresh made pies made with fruit from the orchards on the grounds.
  • Lovely house where they sell home made stuff.

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.
