Often described as an "oasis within the desert," Capitol Reef/Fruita Campground is the perfect place to park a Torrey camper rental and discover the magnificent Utah desert. The campground is located in the tiny town of Fruita, a few minutes’ drive from the southern entrance of Capitol Reef National Park. When you’re camping with an RV in this campground, you’ll have miles of multi-use trails just a few footsteps away. Plus, despite its remote setting, Capitol Reef/Fruita Campground can be accessed via State Routes 24, 72, or 12 from Interstate 70.
This rustic RV park is equipped with 71 sites for vehicles of up to 52 feet; some sites are restricted to smaller vehicles. Campsites are sprinkled between fruit orchards and, although there are no individual hookups, each site has a private fire pit and picnic table so you and your camping companions can enjoy meals in the open air. While you’re staying in your rental RV, you’ll also have access to the camp’s dump station, drinking water, and restrooms.

The best way to begin an outdoorsy vacation with RV rentals in Wayne County is by diving into the stunning landscapes of Capitol Reef National Park. Although it’s not the most famous national park in this region, Capitol Reef offers equally impressive vistas and recreational activities. The acres that make up this national park are blessed with dramatic canyons, red-tinged cliffs, and speckled with natural dome formations made of Navajo Sandstone. The national park offers year-round recreational activities from hiking, biking, and horseback riding to off-road driving and night tours.
You can follow the Cassidy Arch Trail past Cohab Canyon to a naturally formed stone archway or take a more remote trail to the Upper and Lower Muley Twist Canyon. Capitol Reef National Park also provides opportunities to see petroglyphs carved into sandstone by native people, to pick from fruit trees which were planted by Mormon pioneers, or to rock climb on the park’s canyon walls. If your RV rental is under 27 feet, you can even take it on the 11-mile Scenic Drive to Grand Wash and Capitol Gorge.
Leaving behind Capitol Reef for a day, you can visit Goblin Valley State Park in the San Rafael Desert. The 3,654-acre park is brimming with red-brown and goblin-shaped rock formations which fill the valley floor and watch visitors from the valley slopes. Aside from naming the goblins, visitors can get active on hiking and mountains biking trails within the state park. There are plenty of photographic opportunities as well as picnicking spots. At this state park, there’s also the chance to go underground to a naturally formed cavern.
Next, you can take your campervan rental farther east to Otter Creek State Park. It’s located alongside one of the oldest dam projects in Utah. The state park was established in 1965 and is now a pleasant place to eat a picnic or get out on the water. You can bring a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard to enjoy Otter Creek Reservoir or launch your own motorized vessel. While paddling, you can look out for vesper sparrows, great blue heron, and a number of other bird species. The park also provides access to three of the region’s ATV trails, including the 2,000-mile Paiute Trail.
There’s plenty to do in the great outdoors when you camp in an RV near Torrey.
Back at the RV campground, you might want to plan a visit to some of the attractions in the local area. You’ll already be in the historic heart of Fruita when you’re RV camping at Capitol Reef/Fruita Campground. This tiny town, surrounded by desert and far away from major cities, was once the home of Fremont Indians. In the late 1800s, the first Mormon pioneers arrived, but it wasn’t until Capitol Reef National Park was established that Fruita became a significant tourist destination in south-central Utah. Nowadays, the town is semi-preserved, and the historic district is comprised of the old schoolhouse, barns, and cabins, as well as orchards. Fruita is well known for its orchards and, depending on which month you plan your RV rental vacation, you can pick cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, and plenty more fruits directly from the trees. You can bring a basket and pick your own fruit to eat with your camp breakfast.
For a larger variety of foods and stores, you can take a short drive to the town of Torrey. Here you can pick up cowboy-style souvenirs, shop for handmade arts and craft, or browse traditional examples of Utah art and Navajo rugs at the Torrey Art Gallery. If you’re looking for a bite to eat, then you can choose between the classic American breakfast, fast food joints, or pastries made with local ingredients. Adult campers can also stop for a micro-brew beer and live music before returning for a good night’s sleep in a rental motorhome in Capitol Reef/Fruita Campground.
