The Fruita Campground in Capitol Reef National Park offers the amazing opportunity to camp among the historic orchards with views of the red rocks.
Fruita Campground - Capitol Reef National Park
The campground is surrounded by historic fruit orchards. Within the campground, there is a ton of large trees offering shade. The views from the Fruita Campground are epic with the red rocks glowing at sunset.
Each campsite has a paved parking pad that is quite large. Each site also has a picnic table, fire ring, and barbecue brassiere.
We saw deer in the orchards and grass fields surrounding the campground.
One of the highlights of staying in the Fruita Campground is being able to walk over to the Gifford Homestead Farm Store for fresh cinnamon rolls and fruit pies. This is one of our favorite things to do in Capitol Reef National Park.Number of Sites: 71
