Capitol Reef National Park Visitor Center, Capitol Reef National Park: 1 reviews and 1 photos
The visitor center of any national park should always be your first stop. The main desks are staffed by rangers and knowledgable volunteers who provide maps and valuable advice for things to do and see that match your interests and abilities. This is also where you check current weather and road conditions, pick up backcountry permits, sign up for tours, and check out Junior Ranger materials for the kids. They also post listings of daily events such as free evening astronomy, history and geology talks at the outdoor amphitheater. Restrooms and drinking water are available, and this one has a nice book/gift shop and picnic area as well - but no cafeteria. Access is free and does not require a park pass; nice!
The center is generally open from 8:00 until 4:30 with longer hours in summer and closings on a few major holidays; check the website for current schedules before your visit. Additionally, brochures in French and German can be downloaded from this link:
And speaking of the website, it is just FULL of all kinds of information about the park that makes for great reading before you come; check it out!!!
