Twelve Mile Campground
Forest Service / BLM
Number of Sites: 16
About: 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, elevation 10,120 feet. ATV trails are abundant in the area, providing exciting riding for all skill levels. Skyline Drive passes outside the campground. A short, but steep drive over the ridge leads to Ferron Reservoir for canoeing and rainbow and cutthroat trout fishing.
This campground contains two group sites that can accommodate up to 50 people and eight vehicles each, with large picnic tables and fire rings with benches. Additional single-family sites are available for reservations. Vault toilets are provided, but no garbage service. This is a "pack it in, pack it out" facility. A campground host is located on-site. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.
Skyline Drive runs along the top of the Wasatch Plateau for 60+ miles, rewarding visitors with beautiful mountain scenery, glacial cirques, spruce-fir forests, aspen forests, and numerous lakes and reservoirs. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are plentiful, and autumn leaves put on quite a show. In winter, the area becomes a playground for snowmobile enthusiasts.
