Wide Open Spaces
Updated: May 11, 2020
We are all doing our part by staying home to build a safer space for everyone. We are making progress and soon we will have the opportunity to meet what our new normal way of living looks and feels like. You're out of state travel plans may have been canceled or deferred to next year but we are still here and Utah is a magnificent state to explore.
We want to introduce you to Capitol Reef National Parks wide open spaces. We live in a majestic state filled with deserts that inspire hope, tranquility, healing, and mountains that lift our spirits and elevate our resilience. Capitol Reef National Park is unique in its location, nestled in Southeast Utah near mountain ranges and inspiring red rock formations.
Capitol Reef spreads across over a quarter of a million aces of wide open space and slick rock. WIth so much open space it is the least visited park out of all five of Utah's National Parks. The park has one of the darkest skies in Utah and was designated an International Dark Sky Park. Red Sands Hotel is located in Torrey Utah, the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park and is located just 11 miles to the Capitol Reef Visitor Center. Use Red Sands Hotel as your Home base to visit Fish Lake National Forest, Dixie National Forest, Goblin Valley State Park, Escalante, and of course Capitol Reef.
We are doing our part to support a healthier community by staying closed during this high risk time. Please follow us on social media to stay up to date on our opening dates. We follow the recommendations of the State and will be ready to open and welcome you to visit us when the time is right. When that time comes we will be following all the recommendation recommended by our state health department, and the CDC to ensure you and your family are safe and stays healthy. We invite you to start planning and finding inspiration in #Capitolreefnationalpark and reach out to us with any questions or recommendations of places to see and explore.
