The 71-site Fruita campground is the only developed campground in the park, located south of the visitor center in the Fruita Historic District.
The free Cathedral and Cedar Mesa Primitive Campgrounds are located in more remote parts of the park. They have pit toilets, fire rings, and picnic tables, but no water.
The Group Campsite is available by reservation and can accommodate a maximum of 40 people.
A free backcountry permit is required for camping outside of campgrounds.
The developed Fruita Campground often fills daily spring through fall. There are camping alternatives within an hour drive of the visitor center.
