Capitol Reef was designated a national park on December 18, 1971. The 241,904 acre park is located in south-central Utah and is open all year; May through September being the most popular. It is 100 miles long but fairly narrow. The majestic domes, spires, and cathedral-like rocks created by the 100 mile bulge in the earth's crust is called the Water Pocket Fold. This erosion created the majestic rock formations called Capitol Reef.
