The CRFS is located 10.5 miles (16.9 km) from the Capitol Reef visitor center off UT state highway 24 down the Scenic Drive. The final 2.5 miles (4 km) is unpaved and may be difficult or impassable in stormy weather, check with CRFS for current conditions and detailed directions.

The CRFS, in partnership with Capitol Reef National Park, promotes and supports engaged learning, research, scholarly, and creative activities, and environmental ethics through the exploration of the Colorado Plateau. Success is made possible through the partnership between Utah Valley University (UVU) and Capitol Reef National Park. This unique partnership allows CRFS to provide its visitors with educational experiences that are as remarkable as the landscape in which they occur. CRFS is property of the National Park Service and is operated under the direction of UVU and the park in accordance with a General Agreement.
