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.
Popular historic sites such as Anasazi State Park Museum and Fruita Campground are in your itinerary. Visiting Capitol Reef National Park and Capitol Gorge Trail will get you outdoors. When in Capitol Reef National Park, make a side trip to see Factory Butte in Caineville, approximately 58 minutes away. The adventure continues: do some rugged touring at local off-road trails, take in breathtaking views at Cohab Canyon Trail, hike along Goosenecks Overlook, and contemplate the long history of Gifford Homestead.

To find photos, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Capitol Reef National Park holiday maker site .

July in Capitol Reef National Park sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 48°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
