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.

  • Good views with easy access.
  • A short walk for a nice view. Perhaps not the most breathtaking.
  • Gorgeous place.
  • Decent but not to be confused with Goose necks State Park this is in a completely different region.
  • Easy little hike with a spectacular view at the end. Definitely suggest going for sunset!
