Quick Getaway

Close the to the valley for a quick little getaway! Campgrounds are pretty close to one another but somewhat secluded depending on the spot you get. Parking next to your campground is a plus for me! They have restrooms which is nice! Decent place for a quick trip!

Views and views

Dispersed camping above Cascade springs road. Gravel road can get steep and washed out so 4x4 recommended. Amazing views of Mt. Timpanogos. Busy in the Fall with all the hunters. Great mountain biking trails close by (Ridge trail).

Pine trees and high elevation

Beautiful campground in the pine trees. Lots of campsites crammed in there but still a feeling of privacy. Can get busy and hard to get reservations (first come sites available if you want to chance it). Tibble Fork reservoir is close by. You do hear a lot of UTV traffic, but most people probably…

Up busy AF canyon

Free campground near the top of American Fork canyon (which unfortunately is getting over-crowded). Minimal privacy, but if you need a place to crash for the night to start an early morning hike or ride, this place will do the job. The trails do go right through the campsite.

Great Campground

Really fun place in Utah. This was my dogs favorite campground so far. They have so much room to walk, and plenty of wildlife around to keep them interested. There were also several kids around to keep my son happy. He didn’t want to leave.

  • the bridges weren’t great, but they said they’re rebuilding them this winter.

Bison in camp! (Site #33)

Sites have new hook ups and bathrooms. Nicely done! Bison are plentiful and we even had one walk through camp.

Beautiful!

Great little campground. Amazing views of the lake and mountains. Looks like they were finishing adding new bathrooms and showers. There is a loop trail that you can join from the south end of the campground that go’s along the the shore toward White Bay and around the hill. Watch for bison!

Only accessible through hiking

The hike to the top is pretty steep so you'll want to pack light. You can check it out on AllTrails to get more info on the hike itself. Once you get up there the lake is absolutely beautiful. Would recommend going in mid summer so as to not need to worry too much about staying warm at night. Make…

Awesome place close to town

Only 40-50 minutes away from Provo, UT area so easy to get away for a quick day or two of camping. Lots of hikes to do nearby, beautiful views, and place to paddle board, kayak, etc.

Awesome place to catch some dark skies

Jordanelle State Park is a good place to go for astrophotography if you don't have 4 hours to drive out of the city into the boonies. Gets reasonably dark there at night especially if you have time to hunt around for a good spot. There are also bathrooms everywhere so it makes for an easy campout…

Great site with lots of shade.

We loved our stay here. Very mature trees all over park. Good water pressure and WIFI.

Avoid unless you like very windy camping

Very windy---20-30mph winds nearly everyday. That's why it's popular for hang gliding. Unless you're coming here to fly then it's a terrible spot!

Great stop, clean

Reserved online which was neat-o, and checked in via email link so i didn’t have to go in anywhere. But the email didn’t have the gate code so we had to call for that. We originally booked an end spot because we are a large motorhome pulling a trailer, but the person taking us to our spot felt we…
