Capitol Reef National Park Visitor Guide

With five popular national parks within a relatively short distance of one another in Southern Utah, there is definitely no shortage of amazing outdoor activities in the area. If you throw in the parks and monuments in Southern Colorado and Northern Arizona, this region is one of the premier outdoor adventure regions in North America. If you love outdoor adventure, then you will love all of the activities and sights that are outlined in my Capitol Reef National Park Guide. While some of the other national parks in Southern Utah may get more attention on tourist sites, any hardcore national parks enthusiast will tell you that Capitol Reef National Park is a hidden gem in the US National Parks system.

2020 National Parks Trip – Detailed Itinerary

My trip to the American West and Southwest is fast approaching and I have been very busy putting together a detailed itinerary for our trip.  There are no flights or hotels involved in this trip, so you would think the planning process would be easier.  On the contrary, I have found that the logistics of planning a cross-country camping road trip are even more complex than planning your typical fly-and-stay vacation.  Add to that the complexities of the COVID-19 situation and it has been a very interesting travel planning exercise.
