The campground is located in an oasis amidst spectacular views. Imagine an orchard where fruit lies on the ground for anyone to pick, with bubbling of a brook nearby, green meadows, shady trees and discreet, efficient and well-organized administration: that's Fruita campground. We did the combined Grand Wash-Cassidy Arch-Frying Pan-Cohab canyon trails, about 12 miles of the most spectacular terrain on the planet. Do not forget to go into the Capitol Gorge, I'd recommend staying there to experience the nightfall... the stars & the Milky Way are simply amazing. The visibility in the Capitol Reef is 235 km (or miles, i forget), the best in the country, perfect for astronomers.
We were caught by a storm, so had to evacuate from the gorges, just escaped flash floods.
I totally recommend this place. You can have good coffee at the Gifford House, advice from the rangers, and spectacular hiking. Can't go wrong here.More
