Had planned on just driving through Capitol Reef but decided to stay a night in Fruita Campground and so glad we did!! Loop C was quiet and shaded. If the campground was full, privacy would be an issue but lucky for us, it was not. Deer are grazing in the campgound all the time and will walk right past you. There are no hook ups or showers. There are orchards all around and they will let you eat whatever fruit is in season, all you can eat for free! Don't miss The Historic Gifford House right outside the campground, they sell the most amazing home made pie and ice cream!! They sell all kinds, apple, mixed berry, cherry, peach. The pies are small, can be shared by two and we sat under some lovely trees in the shade eating pie and ice cream with the deer grazing right next two us. Truly enjoyed our stay here!

One of the best campgrounds of the Southwest. After spending a day hiking in the Waterpocket fold, the green grass and large trees are a welcome shock. This campground has mostly level sites with restrooms with flush toilets on each loop. There are no shower facilities at this park. The shade of the trees also allows for much cooler temperatures than the rest of the park. It is also within walking distance of the historic homestead where you can buy yummy homemade mini pies and homemade ice cream. Also there are a few trails that are accessible right from the campground. I suggest the Cohab canyon trail. It's strenous at first but allows for great vistas of the Fruita valley and also takes you up into the monocline.

The campgrounds will fill during peak times usually in the late afternoon so arrive early to get a good spot. The only negative about this campground is there is no privacy from your neighbors. But most of them are RVs. It would also be worthwhile to check the nps website to see when their fruit seasons are because fruit you pick and consume in the orchard is free! They have peaches, pears, cherries, apples, and apricots.
