Capitol Reef National Park takes its name from a particularly rugged and scenic section of the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic "wrinkle" stretching for 160 km (100 mi) along a dry plateau surrounded by white Navajo sandstone cliffs and domes, and red canyons, buttes, and rock bridges.
Fruita Campground has been added to your itinerary. Start off your visit on the 30th (Fri): take some stellar pictures from Larb Hollow Overlook, contemplate the long history of Anasazi State Park Museum, then admire the landmark architecture of Fruita Schoolhouse, and finally steep yourself in history at Fruita Campground. On your second day here, take in the dramatic natural features at Factory Butte and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Strike Valley Overlook.

To see maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Capitol Reef National Park attractions planner.

In August, daily temperatures in Capitol Reef National Park can reach 77°F, while at night they dip to 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
