Nearby Attractions

Timpanogos Cave National Monument is 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.

Cascade Springs is just 9 miles from the campground. Family-friendly, accessible boardwalks loop around the natural springs.

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 at Tibble Fork, some beginning at the reservoir and others nearby. The 6-mile Tibble Fork, 2-mile Pine Hollow, 3-mile Mill Canyon and the 15-mile Ridge Trails are all in the vicinity.
