The summer season is underway at Capitol Reef National Park. With schools starting their summer breaks and families and outdoor enthusiasts flocking to the park to enjoy the sunshine and long days, the park’s most popular season is off to a great start. And if you’re planning a summer stay at Torrey hotels, now is the time to start planning your trip.

Whether you’ve booked your stay at Cougar Ridge already or not, now is a great time to start planning each detail of your visit. The sooner you start, the more options and flexibility you’ll have in your planning! Keep reading to learn why now is the time to start planning and some tips for making the most of your stay in one of our Torrey, UT, vacation rentals.

Get Your Top Choice of Dates

Capitol Reef National Park welcomes more than 1.2 million visitors each year. But with a year-round population of less than 300 people, Torrey, Utah, has retained its small-town vibe. While there are a few Torrey hotels to choose from, if you want to guarantee your choice of dates at Cougar Ridge, it’s a good idea to start your planning year.

If you’re planning to visit Cougar Ridge during the busy summer season, booking your stay early is a great way to get your choice of dates in one of our luxury villas. If your travel plans are flexible, it’s easy to plan a last-minute visit from early June to mid-August, when the season begins to wrap up in the park.

Give Your Family or Friends Time to Make Plans

The Grand Lodge at Cougar Ridge is the ultimate destination for family reunions, corporate retreats, and large trips with friends. The Grand Lodge features four beautiful master suites, as well as three floors packed with a variety of amenities. You’ll find two full-service kitchens, a wine cellar, a bowling alley, a fitness center, a theater room, a game room, and more.

If you want to stay in the Grand Lodge, planning your trip early is important. While there are seven luxury villas at Cougar Ridge, we have just one Grand Lodge! If your dates aren’t flexible, you certainly won’t want to miss out on this incredible Torrey, UT, vacation rental!

But booking early will also help give your family or friends time to plan ahead for the trip. Whether they need to request time off work or book travel arrangements, starting your planning early will help increase your chances of everyone being able to come on the trip.

Have Time to Prepare for Your Outdoor Adventures

There’s no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy during your time at Cougar Ridge. Southern Utah is brimming with places to go canyoneering, off-roading, hiking, and more. If you’re thinking about enjoying one or more of these activities during your visit, planning ahead will give you more time to dust off your skills and to better prepare.

Of course, you don’t have to be an expert to try out canyoneering or to go on an off-roading adventure. Simply booking a beginner-friendly tour with one of the many tour companies that we work with will allow you to try any new activity with ease. Check out the off-site activities page on our website to find the perfect tour for your next trip.

If you’re planning to do a lot of hiking during your time in Capitol Reef, and especially if you plan to enjoy some of the park’s scenic trails, planning your trip early will also give you more time to gather the gear you’ll need. This includes things like a good day pack, a comfortable pair of hiking boots, a first aid kit, and some trail snacks.

Have Something to Look Forward to for Months to Come

For many people, looking forward to a fun and exciting vacation is half the fun. If you’re someone who loves to have something to look forward to, booking your next trip early is a great choice. 

Having a vacation to look forward to may also help keep you motivated to reach any goals you have. For instance, if you know that you’ll be taking on a challenging Capitol Reef trail during your vacation, you might use your trip as motivation to start taking a walk each day or to hit the gym more regularly in order to be better prepared. Or, maybe you’re looking forward to taking a step back in time during your Fruita, Utah, hotel stay. Planning early means that you can spend your time learning more about the history of the Mormon settlers who once lived in and around Torrey.
