Capitol Reef National Park

Explore nature’s rugged beauty

The Lodge at Red River Ranch lies at the heart of the most stunning and diverse country imaginable. A few minutes drive will take you into Capitol Reef National Park—one of the true treasures of the southwest. The transcendent cliffs and monoliths of the park are some of the most awe-inspiring examples of nature you will find anywhere. Hike, climb, ride, photograph, and scramble around our wonderful backyard — Capitol Reef. While you’re at it be sure to explore other nearby spectacular playgrounds: Goblin Valley, Escalante-Grand Staircase, Moab, Lake Powell, and more. We are also centrally located between all of Utah’s national parks—Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, and Canyonlands. The Lodge is a great place to experience the best of Utah’s stunning landscapes.
