Capitol Reef National Park

In a state with so many natural wonders, Utah is an outdoor paradise. With headlining National Parks, like Bryce Canyon, Arches and Zion, Capitol Reef National Park is often overlooked or barely even known.
In most of the popular parks, there's always a way to escape busy summertime crowds, but when you visit Capitol Reef in winter, the entire park is off the beaten path.

Capitol Reef is another incredible example of the wild desert beauty found in southern Utah. But since this park is so far off the beaten path, park attendance is light when compared to Zion, Bryce Canyon and Arches National Parks. If you plan a trip to Capitol Reef in winter, you'll have this stretching expanse almost to yourself but you'll also be limited on lodging and dining.
