Fruita Campground Professional Review and Guide
"Fruita Campground in Capitol Reef National Park oﬀers a one-of-a-kind camping experience. Where else can you view the marvels of a singular and gorgeous national park and wander through orchards eating ripe fruit to your belly’s content?
As its name suggests, Fruita Campground sits among fruit—22 orchards spread over more than 60 acres that were ﬁrst planted by Mormon pioneers as they settled the nearby community of Fruita in 1880. The National Park Service now maintains the approximately 2,700 trees as a Rural Historic Landscape, growing cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, apples, plums, mulberries, almonds, and walnuts."
