Overview

Overview

Timpooneke Campground is located along the beautiful Alpine Loop Scenic Byway high in the Wasatch Mountains. The Mount Timpanogos Wilderness Area is adjacent. Visitors enjoy hiking the Timpooneke Trail to the summit of Mount Timpanogos.

Natural Features:

The campground lies among dense, shady stands of aspen, fir and spruce trees at an elevation of 7,400 feet. A beaver pond, stream and riparian area are located within the campground. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant and autumn leaves put on quite a show.

Recreation:

Hiking is very popular in the area. The 15-mile round-trip Timpooneke Trail begins in the campground and climbs to the summit of rugged Mount Timpanogos. Aspen Grove Trail is nearby, leading to the summit as well. Horses are allowed on Timpooneke Trail.

The rough dirt Timpooneke Road also begins at the campground, nearly circumnavigates Mount Timpanogos and offers excellent mountain biking and birding.

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:

The campground contains one group site, nine equestrian sites and several family sites, most of which are accessible.

Campsites are equipped with picnic tables, utility tables and campfire rings. Equestrian sites each have a small horse corral. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Campground roads are paved; parking spurs are gravel.

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.
