The Capitol Reef Field Station consists of four buildings on a bluff overlooking Pleasant Creek in Capitol Reef National Park. The field station is a model in energy-wise construction; it is solar-powered with a propane backup generator, and it makes extensive use of passive heating and cooling. While the station has adequate electricity and water to support its activities, its staff and guests practice conservation at all times. The station accommodates up to 40 day-use visitors and 24 overnight visitors. Presently, phone and web access is limited to satellite technology only.
The site manager residence and office are attached to the Kayenta building. The site manager resides at the station and oversees all activities. Visitors should respect the privacy of the manager’s residence quarters, including awareness of the hours that the manager is available.
No custodial services are provided, and visitors must clean up after use, remove their own trash, and help maintain a clean and pleasant environment during their stay. The deposit will be refunded upon successful check out.
