Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

Tanners Flat is a charming campground about two-thirds of the way up Little Cottonwood Canyon. Heavy foliage hangs over most of the camp, and many of the sites are adjacent to Little Cottonwood Creek. During the summer months the hummingbirds buzz all around your tent, and there are a few short dirt trails to explore near the river on the southwest end. Many small- and medium-sized waterfalls dot the river along the sites. From this campground you have great access to the many hikes in Little Cottonwood, and the White Pine Trailhead is just up the road. There are group and RV sites, but none have electricity. Keep in mind there are no dogs allowed, and there are not many amenities beyond the amphitheater and bathrooms, but the setting is very beautiful. The road is plowed year round; while the campground is closed during winter, this a fabulous spot to snowshoe and cross-country ski.
