part ofManti-La Sal National Forest, US Forest Service
Status: Closed through Fri Jun 19 2015   Season Dates


Twelve Mile Flat Campground is located beneath the shadow of Mt. Baldy near the top of the Wasatch Plateau in an open, wildflower-filled meadow surrounded by spruce and pines.

Natural Features:

The campground sits high on the Wasatch Plateau just below the ridgeline and west of Skyline Drive at an elevation of 10,120 feet. Mature spruce and pine trees dot the open landscape, providing partial shade in the campground. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are plentiful, and autumn leaves put on a spectacular show in the surrounding area.


ATV trails are abundant in the area, providing exciting riding for all skill levels. Skyline Drive passes just above the campground.

A short, but steep drive over the ridge leads to Ferron Reservoir for canoeing and rainbow and cutthroat trout fishing.


The campground contains two group sites that can accommodate up to 50 people and eight vehicles each. Additional single-family sites are also available. Vault toilets are provided, but no garbage service. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

Skyline Drive runs along the top of the Wasatch Plateau for 60 plus miles, rewarding visitors with beautiful mountain scenery, glacial cirques, spruce-fir forests, aspen forests and numerous lakes and reservoirs.
