Fruita is exactly that.. fruit trees, but get this; a 200 acre orchard, with over 2,700 trees, growing all kinds of fruits, in the middle of a desert? It is amazing. The Freemont River flows directly through the middle of Capitol Reef National Park, without it, there wouldn't be irrigation for these orchards. Visitors can climb ladders, and pick their own fruit. It's all you can eat.
The kids loved it.
