About the Campground

Located 15 miles from Sandy at an elevation of 9500 feet, Albion Basin is located in little Cottonwood Canyon among pine and aspen trees. This campground is renowned for the stunning beauty of the summer wildflowers and the unusual geology of the surrounding mountainous area. There is a small stream with good fishing. Campers also come to hike, bike and just relax in the mountain air. Because of the high elevation, Albion Basin opens anywhere from mid-July to the second week in August due to snow melt conditions. We generally know the date only a week before it opens. Check before making the drive to verify current conditions.
