While I understand this Park may be the least visited, I highly recommend it. I have visited all 5 of Utah's National Parks and it is worthwhile visiting Capitol Reef. In fact, in the middle of summer, the number of visitors was quite low. When...More

This stop was part of our larger trip of national parks. Glad we took the time. Unless you like to hike the longer trails, this is good for one day. Afternoon is best time for photos -- some of mine turned out too dark.

This was a great National Park that we stopped at in between Bryce and Canyonlands National Park. I think it was one of my favorite national parks in Utah! The rock formations in the lava in different levels of sediment make this a great Park....More

Beautiful park that very few people know about! My husband and I have visited all of the national parks in Utah and this is one of our favorites.

Many will overlook Capitol Reef, because of the reputation of the other four great Utah National Parks, but Capitol Reef is a gem. You can easily spend a week there. The hikes are in canyons and ridges, and there is much to see right off...More

This is one of the lesser travelled of the Utah big 5 parks. Not to be missed however as "reef" is yet another unique geological area. Stop to see the petroglyphs and don't miss driving through the canyon at the southern end of the park....More
