Adventure Description

Tibble Fork Resrvoir is a medium sized lake in American Fork Canyon that has beautiful crystal blue water and is surrounded by soaring mountain peaks. A sandy beach has recently been added to help increase the comfort of the swimmers and sunbathers. There are many nearby trails and even several other lakes further up the road. Box Elder Peak sits to the west, Mount Timpanogos to the south, and the area has great views in general. It's seasonally closed for the winter, so check UDOT for the dates that flucuate with each seasonal snowfall. There are rainbow and brown trout in the lake, which is fed by the American Fork River. No motor boats are allowed, but you can bring the pups!
