  • Very nice Campground in Capitol Reef NP. The camp hosts are friendly and accommodating. The site is a bit primitive but you can buy delicious pies right there. If you arrive at the right time of year there are lots fruit trees that bear delicious fruit. Make sure you have a reservation.
  • Gorgeous location for camping! Hosts were very friendly and helpful, both with last minute walk up to get a campsite, and when we wanted to find the open orchards the next morning. There were loads of deer around, absolutely stunning scenery, and access to the store with fresh made pies and cinnamon rolls. My only complaint was our site was near the pit toilet, and it smelled horrific, especially in the morning sun.
