The Capitol Reef National Park Visitor Center operating hours will be 8:00 am to 4:30 pm daily starting Sunday December 1, 2013. Enjoy the 18-minute park movie "Watermark", exhibits and bookstore.

The historic Gifford House, located 1 mile (1.6 km) south of the Visitor Center on Scenic Drive, will be closed for the winter and will reopen March 2014.

Winter is a wonderful time to enjoy the park. Visitation is low and solitude abounds.
