Things To Know Before You Come
As you prepare to visit Capitol Reef National Park, you may find the accompanying pages useful in learning about the park, viewing and downloading maps and other information that may help you plan a safe and enjoyable visit.
The Capitol Reef Natural History Association operates a bookstore in the park visitor center. Water, sunscreen, and hats are available along with a wide variety of books, maps, and gift items. The store offers something for everyone.
Other services are available in the adjacent communities of Torrey, Caineville, and Hanksville. The Wayne County Travel Council has information on lodging, dining, shopping, activities, attractions, and other local services for Wayne County, Utah. A Local Area Map can help you find your way around.
We recommend that you familiarize yourself with our park by viewing the Trip Planner and our Guide to the Scenic Drive. Interested in hiking? Please consult our Hiking guide for more detailed information.
