Water is available, but not for hook up. Dump station at camp ground. Each site had picnic table, grill and fire pit in grass area. Restrooms were clean, but no showers. BEAUTIFUL CAMPGROUND and park. Plenty to do. Deer everywhere! Views were incredible. NO cell phone service or internet for miles and miles. We stayed 3 nights and loved every minute. Bring plenty of food and supplies. We didn't see a real grocery store for over 100 miles. Gas station is in Torey 11 or so miles away. Torey has a few restaurants, but after Sept. all are closed for the season as with all other campgrounds in the are in October. No propane available for over 100 miles. We LOVED Capitol Reef National Park and Fruita Campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Hookups would make this a perfect 10! We came in a terrible rain storm and were able to get our choice of several sites. They're fairly level and the big rig sites are in Loop C, next to the amphitheater and the orchards. Apples and pears were ready and you can eat as much as you want while in the orchard, for free. This park is like an oasis in the desert, it's so pretty. We wound up staying 6 days, twice as long as we planned. We would have stayed longer if it wasn't so isolated. In addition to no hookups, there's no cell phone, internet, or TV either. Most of the sites, like ours, are luxuriously covered with trees, so no satellite as well. We did a lot of hiking and sitting out enjoying the beauty. Overall, a really great experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.

If you want to stay in Fruita, get there early as the sites during mid-week fill up by about 11. Excellent and very diligent camp hosts were helpful in directing folks who were too late to get into a Fruita nearby National Forest parking area off the road a few miles away. Spend one night there and get to the Fruita campground early the next morning for a site. Sites are all paved and mostly level. Some are quite short, but we also did see some large Class A rigs. Tenters have sites intermingled with RVs, so reasonable quiet is mandatory. The campground accepts no reservations and is dry camping only. There are no showers but there is potable water and a dump station. The rate shown reflects the 50% discount for holders of the senior pass. The old community of Fruita was very interesting. While we don't anticipate returning here, we'd stay at Fruita again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
