Great place to explore the park from.

Fruita campground is just behind the Capitol Reef NP visitor's center and right at the start of the Cohab Canyon trailhead. There are toilets and running water, but no showers, and NO cell service. 2018 is the first year the campsite is by reservations. However, it does advertise a few walk-in sites. Those site we not full when I was there even the though the entrance of the campground was marked a full. Campsite are flat, clean, and well shaded. You might be on dirt or grass. Expect the sprinklers to be running in the spring and summer. Each site has a fire pit, picnic table, and charcoal grill.
