My wife and I recently traded ten dollars for a million, a view worth a million that is! Have you ever noticed that when you visit a national park the lodge commands the million dollar view while the campground is delegated to a non descript place in the back forty? The lodge at Yellowstone has a commanding view of Old Faithful, while the campgrounds are set back in the woods. The lodge at Crater Lake is located right on the rim of the giant caldera while the campground is set way down on the lower slopes on the extinct volcano. Well at Capital Reef National Park us RVers are treated as first rate citizens with a campground that is located center stage. The towering cliffs of red sandstone the park is famous for provide a scenic backdrop to the campground while mature trees shade the campsites. Grassy areas and a flowing stream complete the oasis in the desert. Points of interest radiate out in all directions from the campground making it an ideal base camp to explore from. If you are there in the fall, an added bonus is that you are allowed to harvest fresh fruit from the neighboring historic orchards too. All this for only $10.00 a night or $5.00 for Golden Age/Senior Pass and Golden Access. To learn more visit: http://www.nps.gov/care/planyourvisit/fruitacampground.htm
