Capitol Reef National Park Photos

In this Capitol Reef National Park guide we share photos along with tips to help you make the most of your visit. We live just hours away from Capitol Reef so we’ve had many experiences photographing the park.


Panorama Point Photos

We LOVE Panorama Point at sunrise to capture the sun crossing the horizon. Access this sunrise photo spot at Capitol Reef from Highway 24 as you enter the park from the west.

Sunset Point Photos

We like to wait until the sun sets when the scene is all in shadow to capture blue hour photos.

Highway 24 Photos

As you drive along Highway 24, stop at the various pullouts to photograph this jaw-dropping landscape!

Fruita Area Photos

The scenic drive begins at the Fruita Historic District. Here you’ll find most of the Capitol Reef services like the Visitor Center, ranger programs, restrooms, picnic areas and campground.

Grand Wash Photos

From Fruita, continue along the Capitol Reef scenic drive to the Grand Wash spur dirt road that leads into a narrow, steep-walled canyon that is vulnerable to bad weather conditions.

Capitol Gorge Photos

Eph Hanks Tower seen from the parking lot is a terrific location for sunset and night photography.
