Southern Utah is a beautiful, scenic area filled with mountain lakes, streams, red cliffs, mountain peaks, deep canyon, gorges, hiking, biking, and more. Our Capitol Reef area sample itineraries include several one-day trips to a variety of nearby destinations to match every taste. Use the links below for detailed itinerary ideas. We invite you to stay multiple days at the Aquarius Inn in Bicknell, Utah, and enjoy our spacious rooms, pool and spa while you explore and discover the range of experiences available in and around Capitol Reef National Park.

Start Your Day Off Right
Begin your day with complimentary coffee in your room, or perhaps with a workout in our fitness room. When you return, the Aquarius Inn will welcome you back with a soothing soak in the spa, a refreshing dip in the pool, and a good movie from the on-premise video store to wind down the day before settling down for a good nights rest.
