We are not normally campers but we both liked this campground so much that we stayed two nights in August and here's why: it's in the historic Fruita district in Capitol Reef park where you can pick fresh fruit (apples, pears, peaches) daily, you can take refreshing baths in the nearby Fermont river, hike around Capitol Reef and get coffee, tea and fresh scones and pies at the Gifford House, just 2 mins away. There's always mule deer walking around and it's along the scenic drive, so access to the park is great. The grass is soft which adds to the sleeping quality, a spot costs 10 $, there's a water fountain, the bathrooms are nice (including with nice soft big paper towels) - and it cools down at night but doesn't get too cold (not as cold as Grand Canyon definitely). There are no showers and no wifi but you can find both in nearby Torrey (which also has a general store and a laundromat). I'd come back here anytime, really enjoyed the stay.
