Welcome to Fruita! The campground's A and B loops were constructed in 1964. The C loop was added in 1987, for a current total of 71 sites. Each year, thousands of visitors enjoy their stay under a canopy of cottonwood trees. Please help preserve your park and provide for a safe and enjoyable visit by becoming familiar with the following information and regulations. Contact a ranger or campground host for further details.
Feeding the wildlife is prohibited. Please keep them wild!
Keep a clean camp. Between 10 pm and 6 am, all food items (unless being prepared or consumed) must be stored in vehicles. This reduces the risk of unwanted visitors. Keep tents zipped and RV and car doors closed. Leaving food unattended may result in confiscation of items and/or a violation notice.
Pets must be physically restrained at all times on a leash 6 feet (1.83 m) in length or less. Leashed pets are permitted along the path from the campground to the visitor center, along roads and in open orchards, but are not permitted on hiking trails or in off-trail areas.
Pets may not be left unattended at campsites.
Pet owners are required to immediately pick up solid waste left behind by their pets and dispose of it in garbage cans.
All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) and Utility-Terrain Vehicles (UTVs):
The use of ATVs and UTVs is not permitted in Capitol Reef National Park.
The use of any weapon, trap, or net is prohibited in all national park sites. Carrying of firearms must comply with state law. Firearms are prohibited inside all federal facilities such as the visitor center.
Wood gathering is not permitted in the park. Firewood may be purchased at the Gifford House or at local stores during the summer season.
Fires are permitted only in the permanent fire rings located in each campsite or in an above-ground portable grill or fire pan capable of containing all fire ash and residue.
Capitol Reef National Park recommends visitors do not swim, wade for long periods, or ingest water from the Fremont River becauseE. colibacteria are routinely detected at frequencies greater than Utah water quality standards. Source ofE. colibacteria in the Fremont River may include runoff from upstream or local agricultural, grazing, and urban land, and human and wildlife waste.
From late spring through early fall, the campground sprinklers are sometimes left on for up to 24 hours for the survival of the grass.
If a sprinkler is impacting your campsite, you may move it to another location in your site or turn down the volume, but please do not turn it off. Contact the campground host if the problem persists. Water from sprinkler spigots is NOT potable.
From spring through fall, park staff frequently present interpretive programs at the campground amphitheater and other nearby locations. Information on programs and schedules is available at the visitor center and with the campground hosts.
