... gas mileage. We had a tailwind most of the trip, so it was quiet, albeit a bit of a challenge at times in the steering department. We try to make a stop about every eighty to a hundred miles, both for a “personal needs break” and just to stretch a bit. The scenery is outstanding, but lacking in snow this year.

    Most of the time the campgrounds that are located within the national parks are pretty plain. You get clean bathrooms and water and a concrete slab, but not much else.

    Fruita campground in Capitol Reef NP couldn't be more different. Not only is the campground clean, but the area is full of mature, beautiful trees and lots of tidy grass. The sites are spacious and an added bonus is the Gifford House is steps away and is full of homebaked breads and scones, hot coffee, ice cream and gourmet canned goods.

    Add the world class hiking and scenery that Capitol Reef has to offer and you move this great campground from 4 stars to 5!!

    Downsides? No showers - but the Fremont River is lots of fun instead!

    This campground was beautiful and not full which was a surprise. It was only $10 per night. Lots are paved, but no hookups and the park ranger was very crabby. There was a dump station and generators could be used during set hours in the morning and evening. We camped in a 5th wheel.

    Open air sites near a river, not a ton of shade. Showers were closed for the season
