Mt. Timpanogos Campground is located along the beautiful Alpine Loop Scenic Byway in the Wasatch Mountains. The Mount Timpanogos Wilderness Area is adjacent. Visitors enjoy hiking the Aspen Grove Trail to the summit of Mount Timpanogos.
Hiking is very popular in the area and several trails begin nearby, including the 14-mile roundtrip Aspen Grove Trail, which begins across the road from the campground and climbs to the summit of rugged Mount Timpanogos.
The campground sits along the 20-mile paved Alpine Loop Scenic Byway. It passes through alpine canyons, mountain meadows, aspen groves and pine forests, offering breathtaking views of the Wasatch Range.
The campground contains several family campsites with picnic tables and campfire rings. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs are paved.
The campground is situated in a dense, shady forest of aspen, maple, and pine trees at an elevation of 7,600 feet. Through the trees, visitors are awarded gorgeous views of the surrounding peaks. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant and autumn leaves put on quite a show.
Cascade Springs, Deer Creek Reservoir, Tibble Fork Reservoir and the Timpanogos Cave National Monument are just a few of the surrounding attractions.

This location is great since it is not very far from the city and you can find different things to enjoy.
Including fishing, off roading (ATV, 4 wheelers), hiking, kayaking.
A couple sites are on the side of a creek. I took site 27 by the entrance just next to the creek. Many open sites late Thursday evening in early August. Picnic tables, fire pits, restrooms. Good cell service. Friendly elderly lady camp host. $24/night for single site.
This campground is within 40 minutes of town, but feels like you are far away from your worries. There is a stream that runs thru it and a lot of trees that provide plenty of shade. There are several hiking trails within walking distance, with waterfall destinations, or a peak to summit.
I've stayed here many times, it's well maintained and nestled in old growth trees, it's very cozy, except that the often times busy Alpine Loop is VERY close
We hiked up the Emerald Lake at the basin of MT. Timpanogos, and set up camp there. Water is available through the glacial Emerald Lake. Bring all your own camping gear and flashlights! The stars in the early morning provide unparalleled views. Hike to the top of the mountain for great sunrise views!
Behind Mount Timp along the 92 passed Sundance and Aspen Grove is a beautiful area full aspen and fir. Plenty of room for dispersed camping. I know it is free for one or two nights. Hiking trails that follow the road or gonup the mountain. Teeming with Wildlife. The road to it is closed during winter/spring.
there is plenty of open ground to pitch your tent in -especially when you get higher up- and a fun, beautiful hike, (whether or not you’re staying the night) I highly reccomend hiking and camping just about anywhere on this mountain.
We had an amazing experience at this campsite! We were able to complete several challenges for the SLC Questival!
This is a must-see spot. This area, really all of American Fork Canyon is among the prettiest places in Utah Valley. Go! Camp! Hike Timp!
The campsite was close to the trailhead to go up to the caves on top of mount Timpanogas. It was a wonderful experience. The cave tour really is a must see even if you just day trip up to it. The sites were nice. People were polite and stuck to the quite hours. There was a drop toilet within walking distance from our site and a water spigot. The sites were spacious and relaxing.
