About Granite Flat (Utah)

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.

Recreation

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.

Facilities

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. Horseshoe pits and a grassy baseball field are located on-site. Roads and parking spurs are paved.  

Natural Features

The campground is situated among dense stands of aspen, Douglas fir, spruce and pine trees at an elevation of 6,400 feet. Rugged Wasatch peaks surround the area. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant.

Nearby Attractions

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.

American Fork Creek can be accessed 3 miles south. A favorite among fly-fisherman, the creek has light pressure for stocked rainbow trout.

The 20-mile paved Alpine Loop Scenic Byway passes just a few miles from the campground, traveling through alpine canyons, mountain meadows, aspen groves and pine forests, with breathtaking views of the Wasatch Range. This road is not recommended for vehicles over 30 feet in length.

Timpanogos and Lone Peak Wilderness Areas are nearby, offering a myriad of additional hiking and biking opportunities.

Loved this place

Very beautiful and worth the visit!

So beautiful.

Went for the night. Just wanted to paddleboard the lake and it was perfect to do so. Not too crowded. Small but beautiful.

Close by but feels remote

Granite flats is just a few miles up AF canyon and our site was very quiet and secluded. There are two reservoirs close by in Tibble Fork and Silverlake flat that are both beautiful.

The one downside was that the tent spot was not flat, and had quite a few large rocks. Otherwise, it was great. We will be back.

Close to a lake and Timp caves

Great little spot just above Tibble Fork reservoir. They recently finished construction on the reservoir so there is plenty to do there. You can fish, kayak, paddle board, swim, etc just beware that the weekends and holidays bring out lots of people and beach space fills up really fast.

The campground is very clean and easy access to vault toilets and water. There are plenty of trees for shady spots. Not all sites will fit the length of a trailer, but most will.

Nice spot close to home.

I took the scouts up to this spot and it is a great place to camp with lots of room. Make sure you get camped and in because they lock the gate coming into campground at 11PM and you have to hike in. Really nice campsites with really nice bathrooms and picnic tables. There is a huge spot of grass that you can play sports or baseball on. Can't remember the site we had but there was a huge rock that was fun for the scouts to climb on. Really nice spots with lots of trees and shade. This is really close to some really good hikes like Stewart Falls, and tibble fork reservoir just minutes for your camp site. In the summer call ahead because this area can be busy.

Minutes above Tibble Creek Reservoir

Beautiful reprieve! This is a great campground. Lots of activities surround it (fishing, canoeing, 4-wheeling).nice group sites as well.

Gorgeous high alpine campground!

A beautiful alpine campground that sits near 2 beautiful reservoirs you can relax at during the hot summer! This campground lies on the Tibble Fork Res turnoff in American Fork Canyon. There are vault toilets with picnic tables and metal fire rings at each site

Nearby there are hundreds and hundreds of climbing routes and hiking trails! A hiking trail that is within the campground heads up to the 11000'+ peak! There are also numerous trails that hike around the mountains and lakes. If you choose to drive further up to Silver Lake Flat you will get treated to gorgeous views of the Alpine Ridge to the north and the Timpanogos Massif to the south

Busy, but beautiful

These campgrounds were surprisingly busy with dune buggies, dirt bikes, and cars driving by every few minutes. I thought we went far enough in that this wouldn’t be a problem, but the campsite we chose was right next to the road. Other than that we were close to the river, a quick drive down to tibble fork, and the dogs (and humans) had a blast camping here!

Mountain views

This is my husband's favorite. It is less than an hour from home but feels farther. There are plenty of trees to provide shade and a lot of activities in the area to do. It is right up the road from tibble fork reservoir for swimming and boating(non motorized). There are many different atv trails to follow. And my personal favorite, hiking trails galore. It makes a great weekend getaway.

Quick and easy with lots of fun

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.
