Capitol Reef National Park


Capitol Reef National Park initially became a national monument in 1937 with 37,711 acres. In 1970 it became known as a National Park with 254,000 acres. There is a $10 per vehicle entrance fee if you don’t have a National Park Pass. There is a visitor’s center, campground and orchard along with historical buildings.

We stopped at the Visitor Center and watched their 18 minute orientation film, got my National Park stamp, picked up their brochure and park guide map. We drove the 10-mile scenic drive and did some hiking, and got caught in the rain. The rain quit for a bit and then came down hard so we decided to head back home.
