From Interstate 70, the road can be accessed from the west just a few miles from Highway 6, and from the east just near the town of Richfield. It also meets up at the north end of Highway 12 at the town of Teasdale. There is a major campsite at Capitol Reef National Park, but also many RV sites and small motels along the highway. In total the highway is 160 miles, but the best part is the 50 miles surrounding Capital Reef.
If you’re a little more adventurous and looking to set up camp outside of the park, you can head to the [BLM land](http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en.html). Get more information on backcountry camping [here](http://www.nps.gov/care/planyourvisit/backcountrycamping.htm).
There are also two other camping options: [Primitive Campsites](http://www.nps.gov/care/planyourvisit/primitivecampsites.htm) and [Fruita Campground](http://www.nps.gov/care/planyourvisit/fruitacampground.htm).
