Sleeping out under the stars in the Capital Reef National Park is an invitation to witness one of the most breathtaking light shows on earth. You can look forward to this natural phenomenon when you check in to Wonderland Park, where the accommodations are versatile with easy electricity (30/50), sewer, water, and wi-fi connections for RV’s, while a fenced, green grassy space is a perfect setting for tents.
Ever wondered what it was like to sleep in a sheep camp wagon from back in the Wild West days? The kids will love this opportunity, or you could book the family into a pioneer log cabin that’s partially furnished with a fridge, microwave, and TV. There is also a cheaper way to stay in a smaller cabin that may appeal to folk looking for a base camp as they map out their vision of exploring the trails in the neighboring national park.
The park grounds are immaculate with spacious RV lots catering to a pull-through or back-in preference. Pretty, blossoming fruit trees offer partial shade with a picnic table and fire pit on all sites. Travelers to this south Utah park can expect pristine restrooms, showers, and a laundry room, plus complimentary cable TV. A basketball court offers relaxing fun while a camp store is stocked with basic supplies.
Pets are welcome, making it a huge drawcard for road trippers and snow birders who travel constantly with their furry pals. A good-sized dog run provides a grassy exercise space where pooches can walk on a leash, and it’s always a good idea to pick up your fur-baby's waste. Temperatures can soar in the summer, so keep all pooches hydrated and under the shelter of an umbrella or shade tent when outside a vehicle. The park rules request a limit of three family pets per site and that guardians supervise their woofers at all times. This will ensure a happy, tail-wagging time!
There’s no doubt the main attraction lies in the show-stopping theater of Capitol Reef National Park, a scenic mirage with snow-colored domes and red-faced, jagged cliffs. Some rocks are over 200 million years in the making, giving the visitor a rare glance of how the planet once possibly looked. Hikers with a dream to tackle the various trails come from all over and often stay at Wonderland RV Park for its close proximity.
A two-minute drive finds you in Torrey, where stargazing is high on the list of things to do, along with taking in the natural, surreal sights. Outdoor extremists revel in this town's open door to some of the most amazing trails, including Sulpher Creek and Upper Muley Twist.
