Granite Flat Campground is located a short distance up scenic American Fork Canyon, less than a mile from Tibble Fork Reservoir. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing and exploring local trails.
Nearby Tibble Fork and Silver Flat Reservoirs offer canoeing, kayaking and fishing for rainbow, brook and brown trout. A portion of the north shore at Tibble Fork is accessible. Both reservoirs are open only to non-motorized watercraft. Scuba divers frequent Tibble Fork's south shore.
Hiking and mountain biking trails abound, some beginning at the reservoir and others nearby. The 6-mile Tibble Fork Trail, 2-mile Pine Hollow Trail, 3-mile Mill Canyon Trail and the 15-mile Ridge Trail are all in the vicinity.
This large campground offers three group sites and several single and double-family sites, most of which are accessible. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water.
Horseshoe pits and a grassy baseball field are located on-site. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Timpanogos Cave National Monument is just a few miles down American Fork Canyon, with a rewarding but steep 1.5-mile hike to a guided tour of the spectacular three-room cave system. The trail offers beautiful views of American Fork Canyon.

Short distant from AF to some amazing views, playing in the lakes, and rivers, and just being in an amazing canyon with lots of wildlife.
American Fork canyon is my all time favorite canyon. I love the high sides as you drive through. Fall is the best time to go. Beautiful colors. Granite flats has lots of hiking around and is near a really fun little reservoir (which has been discovered and is getting super busy unfortunately). Very picturesque for sure.
Very nice campgrounds with single and double spaces. Allow RV's with no electicity ad no water hookups. Pit toilets and no showers. Close to 4 wheeling trails, fishing and Tibble Fork lake to swimm, boat (not motorized) and fish.
loved camping here! My husband and I recently moved to Oklahoma where there there isn’t much camping. So to say that we were excited for our trip back home was an understatement. This campsite was near Tibble Fork which is somewhere I have been wanting to go and explore for a long time. We were able to paddle board which was a blast! I loves being so close and having access to so many beautiful hikes and Rick climbing. We were right next to a beautiful river and it was pretty quiet.
Utah is such an amazing place to visit for the outdoors. My family and I come here once a year because we love hiking and being in the outdoors. This place was great and provided us a place to stay for a few nights before making the long drive home. There are some great hikes nearby that I highly recommend. We went on a 10 mile round trip hike one of the mornings and the views were incredible. The campground was great, and the campsites were awesome. Each campsite is separated by trees so you feel like you have some privacy which we really loved. There is a great burger joint nearby that I recommend going too. We ate here twice!
Very nice campground up from the reservoir. It’s quiet despite the area being very busy during weekends. We’ve been here several times and even saw a moose in the Mess Hall loop once. The hosts were helpful also. Nice sites nestled in pine trees. There is running water and vault toilets throughout the campground. There were some wicked thunderstorms at night (which we liked). Some sites are small so make sure you know the dimensions of the equipment you’re bringing.
Very cool old campground in gorgeous mountains near 2 lakes and ample recreation activities of all forms. One really neat thing about this campground is its history as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp
I really enjoyed camping here with a group of friends. Each camping area is nice, however, it is very very busy and pretty tight quarters. If you're looking for a little more privacy from neighbors this may not be your best bet.
I'm not a fan of camping with close neighbors.
This campground is away from the busy parts of this campground but still plenty to do nearby with hikes and water.
