Altamont Campground is located along the beautiful Alpine Loop Scenic Byway high in the Wasatch Mountains. The Mount Timpanogos Wilderness Area is adjacent. Visitors enjoy hiking the nearby Timpooneke Trail to the summit of Mount Timpanogos.

The campground lies among dense, shady stands of aspen, fir and spruce trees at an elevation of 7,400 feet. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant and autumn leaves put on quite a show.

The rough, dirt Timpooneke Road also begins across the road, nearly circumnavigates Mount Timpanogos and offers excellent mountain biking and birding opportunities.

The campground sits along the 20-mile paved Alpine Loop Scenic Byway. It passes through alpine canyons, mountain meadows, aspen groves and pine forests, offering breathtaking views of the Wasatch Range.
