  • Amazing view. Difficult to reach.
  • This place is absolutely magical. If you are in the area its a must see. Unless you have a high clearance 4x4 vehicle you have to hike up muley twist canyon. 3 hours to hike and i loved every second.

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.
