While Capital Reef was a bit of a let down, the baked fruit pies from Fruita were a high point of our national park journey. Apple, cherry, mixed fruit and more. Take your choice and sit under the trees and enjoy perfection.

I loved learning about the history of Fruita by listening to the short audio tours and reading the signs. There is a barn, school building, cabin, and many other sights to see!

Fruita is a small portion of the park on scenic highway 24. We came through here in the afternoon and saw mule deer and a number of other animals and birds. The birdwatching was especially good by the river adjacent to the highway..

Fruita in the fall is magical. With the changing leaves and roaming deer and apple orchards, it was a perfect, relaxing way to spend a morning. We fell in love and if it was possible to still live in Fruita, I would move there tomorrow....More

The Fruita area is a combination of some historic buildings and orchards standing beautifully on the wonderful red rock formations background. In season, you can pick up some apples and see many deers around.

There's a few historic buildings still standing which all have a post where you can activate an audio-fragment to hear more about it. There's few orchards which are actually open to pick (free) fruit, check at the visitors center if you want to be pointed...More
