We camped in the campground in Fruita. That was a surprise - a former Mormon pioneer community with a fruit tree orchard and a farmhouse that sells fresh fruit pies. The campground was clean, in a beautiful setting. In mid-April it turned quite cold, and we awoke with one inch of snow on our tent! We hiked the trail through the canyon at the end of the nearby Scenic Road (entry is on the honor system) and hiked to the petroglyphs and tanks - large ponds of water in basins etched into the rocks - in a desert! The hike was a bit adventuresome as the cairns (trail markers of rocks) were few and far between. This is a quiet and must-see park.
