  • 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 »

  • I’ve been to this place twice while at Capital Reef National Park. The first time I had a mixed berry pie. I wasn’t too certain about getting another one the next at, but after doing both the Hickman Bridge Trail and the Cassity Arch Trail, it was an easy choice for a strawberry rhubarb pie…along with some ice cream :-)
  • My dad's best friends house when they were growing up in the 1930-40's
  • Delicious pies and bread. They also have ice cream and some really nice picnic tables to relax on.
  • Pies. Bought and consumed. Meh. People are super nice.
  • 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).

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.
