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. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Capitol Reef National Park: Factory Butte (in Caineville), Hite Marina (in Hite) and Bullfrog Marina (in Bullfrog). Spend the 16th (Mon) exploring nature at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Nature & Parks, contemplate the long history of Gifford Homestead, hike along Navajo Knobs Trail, and delve into the distant past at Anasazi State Park Museum.
