Camp Details:

Granite Flat Campground is located just a few miles up scenic American Fork Canyon in thick stands of aspens, Douglas fir, spruce, and pine trees at an elevation of 6,400 feet, nestled beneath towering mountains. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant.

Nearby Tibble Fork Reservoir offers rainbow and brown trout fishing, and Silver Flat Reservoir has rainbow and brook trout fishing. A portion of the north shore at Tibble Fork is wheelchair accessible. Both reservoirs are open to non-motorized boats only, and are great for canoeing and kayaking. Tibble Fork Reservoir also has good scuba diving off the south shore. Hiking and mountain biking trails abound, some beginning at the reservoir and others nearby, with the 6-mile Tibble Fork Trail, 2-mile Pine Hollow Trail, 3-mile Mill Canyon Trail, and the 15-mile Ridge Trail, all excellent for hiking and biking.

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, and stunning views of American Fork Canyon. American Fork Creek also offers good fly-fishing with light pressure. Timpanogos and Lone Peak Wilderness Areas are nearby as well, and offer a myriad of additional hiking and biking opportunities. 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.
