Located on the banks of Timpanogas Lake, this small but spacious campground is a great place to enjoy a sunny summer day fishing or swimming. Alternately, you can hike, bike, or horseback ride on one of the many nearby trails for views of Diamond Peak or Sawtooth and Cowhorn mountains. Motorized boats are not allowed on the lake, which keeps the setting quiet and relaxing. The 5,200-foot elevation leads to cooler days and cold nights.

All campsites have picnic tables and fire pits. Some are more secluded than others, but with so few campsites in all, there is little noise. The campground also includes vault toilets, trash containers, and a water pump. Timpanogas Shelter sits across the lake from the campground and can be rented from late June through late October. 

Note: Mosquitos are very bad during July and August. Extra vehicles are $4.00 per night. The campground closes by late October and opens again in June. The area is also popular during the winter months with snowmobilers and cross-country skiers.
