Getting to Capitol Reef National Park
Capitol Reef National Park is located in a remote area of south-central Utah. It is the “middle” of the five Utah national parks, the others being Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon, and Zion. The town of Torrey is adjacent to the most visited portion of the park.
Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the visitor center in Capitol Reef. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Capitol Reef Trail Map.
Below you will find a list of airports most convenient for a trip to Capitol Reef, listed in order of distance. For each airport we give useful links for further information on the airport, as well as flight and rental car bookings.
