Great for off road vehicles, fishing and camping.

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.

Recreation

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.

Facilities

Natural Features

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.
