  • This was our second visit here and hope to return again. I rate Capital Reef as my all time favorite of the Utah Parks. Mile after mile of breath taking views and surprisingly there is no admission fee to enter. My wife bought a small apple pie at the Gifford house which we brought home and an hour ago I saw it in the fridge and took it out to try it. It was the best apple pie I ever ate. "Sorry Grandma". As we sat out at one of the picnic tables a doe and her fawn came near us and started eating grass. I slowly inched closer and stood within 5 -6 feet of the doe. What a great experience. There is a campground close by and it looks like a popular place. Be sure to reserve ahead as it is usually full.
  • Best peach pie ever!!! Little to no added sugar so it just juicy peaches in a fabulous crust. Wish I had bought several.
