RV Travel Life | Capitol Reef National Park & Torrey Utah
Capitol Reef National Park is located about 15 minutes (driving) from Torrey, Utah. We recommend stopping by the visitors center first and getting a map because the park is very long and narrow. We decided to take the scenic drive first and get our feet wet before jumping in on hiking. There are plenty of great trails under 3 miles that are very scenic and offer all kinds of perspectives of the desert. If you enjoy hiking, biking, and being outdoors this needs to be on your bucket list. The roads are very narrow. We saw a caravan of Class C Rentals (10 of them) traveling down the scenic route. We were very worried considering how narrow the roads were. Several of them did not seem like they were very experienced with RVs either, which made it much worse. There are lots of tight corners and quick turns. We are advising everyone to just be careful and take appropriate safety measures so everyone can enjoy their time in the park.This would be much better for bicycles and motorcycles, and Jeeps :)
It is $10.00 per vehicle to enter the park. Upon entering the scenic drive there is a stand off to the right. In order for our parks to keep running and look this nice, you need to stop here and pay the fee. So many people skipped this which made us really sad.
Lower Antelope Canyon is the second part of two, of the Antelope Slot Canyons. In the 1990s the Navajo Nation decided that this would be a good destination for traveling tourists. The Slot Canyons provide a beautiful playground for photographers from around the world. This is an extremely touristy location that people travel to from around the globe. The tour guides were all Navajo Natives, and from our understanding, only the Navajo Natives could work there. The tour guides were very helpful in explaining how to best capture photos of the area, however, there was not much explained about the culture and how they related to the slot canyons.

Wonderland RV Park - Gifford House Pies - Capitol Reef - 30 Day Family RV Road Trip VLOG Day 17 Pt 1
Waking up in a great stop in Torrey Utah - Wonderland RV Park - and enjoying the lush green grass - something that I've missed from back home since we started our trip through the desert! We definitely could have stayed longer here.
Stopped in at the Gifford House for a sampling of their pies after finding a place to park our motorhome and run around in the toad car.
Finished up Jr Ranger badges at the Ripple Rock Nature Center, learned that we should have stopped here for fruit orchard maps yesterday, and enjoyed the drive out of Capitol Reef as we head out to Goblin Valley State Park next!
Off we go on our longest trip yet! Last year we took our new to us motorhome on a 2 week trip which set the stage for this 4 week family RV journey from the east coast towards New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Colorado with a few points on the way out and back.
