Located in south-central Utah in the heart of red rock country, Capitol Reef National Park is a hidden treasure filled with cliffs, canyons, domes, and bridges in the Waterpocket Fold, a geologic monocline (a wrinkle on the earth) extending almost 100 miles.
Entrance fees are charged for traveling the park's Scenic Drive beyond the Fruita Campground. Passes are valid for 7 days. Holders of America the Beautiful passes are provided access into Capitol Reef and other federal fee areas at no additional cost.
The park requires all visitors 16 yrs of age and older traveling Scenic Drive beyond the Fruita Campground to pay an entrance fee.
