“The ideal place to stay for Utah visitors”
Nearly 100 miles long, the Waterpocket Fold is a warp in the earth’s crust and the defining feature of the park. The Capitol Reef area of the Waterpocket Fold is the most scenic, named for its white domes of Navajo Sandstone and its miles of rocky cliff barrier, which are likened to an ocean coral reef.
The Capitol Reef National Park provides miles of hiking trails, which offer picturesque views of some of the reddest red rock in the world. Stop by our front desk for information on how to sign up for hiking and four-wheel drive tours through the most beautiful areas of the park, including Capitol Reef, Cassidy Arch, and Hickman Bridge.
While you’re at the park, don’t miss a chance to see the blooms of the Fruita Rural Historic Landscape, featuring orchards of over 3,000 trees, including cherry, apricot, peach, pear, apple, plum, mulberry, almond, and walnut. When the season is right, fruit pickers and ladders are provided to help you get the ripest pick. You can also get a sense of the area’s Mormon history by paying a visit to the Gifford Homestead, which depicts the life of early 1900s settlers through a farmhouse, barn, smokehouse, garden, and pasture.
Return to the Capitol Reef Resort to rest and relax after a day at the park. You can wash the red rock out of your clothes in our guest laundry facility before unwinding in our heated, outdoor pool and hot tub. Don’t leave without picking up a knickknack in our gift shop.
