In an effort to improve the reservation process for the Fruita Group Campsite, we will no longer be handling the reservation system at the park. Beginning with the 2016 camping season, please use the website www.recreation.gov to make your reservations.
You will be able to view and familiarize yourself with the information regarding the Fruita Group Campsite on www.recreation.gov beginning October 1, 2015. Parties may begin making reservations for the 2016 camping season beginning February 1, 2016, at 8 a.m. mountain standard time. Please be prepared to book your desired dates at that time. As with the lottery system, we anticipate multiple requests for the same dates. The sooner you make your reservations, the better your chances will be of getting your preferred dates.
As in the past, the Fruita Group Campsite will open April 1 and close October 20. It will be closed every Tuesday and Wednesday nights for maintenance.
Beginning with the 2016 camping season, there will be a rate increase. The per-person rate will be $4.00, with a minimum nightly fee of $75.00. "This modest increase in fees will allow us to continue to protect, preserve and share the special places here at Capitol Reef for current visitors and future generations," said Capitol Reef Superintendent Leah McGinnis. "After carefully considering the impact of a fee increase on visitors and community members, we came to the conclusion that this is the right course of action to improve facilities and services important to visitors. We are thankful to the local community for providing comments and supporting this fee structure."
Only the Fruita Group Campsite will be reserved through www.recreation.gov at this time. Our regular campsites will remain first-come, first-served.
Although we will no longer be making the advanced reservations for the group site, if you have any questions, please feel free to call the fee office at 435-425-4172.
We look forward to continuing to serve your camping needs.
