Albion Basin is a typical single-loop campground, but that's the only typical thing about it. You could say that the campground is located in downtown ski country, as it's bordered by Alta Ski Resort. The resort's Albion Lift passes directly over the campground, and in winter the campsites are visited by skiers on their way down the mountain. In the summer, however, the ski lift sits quietly above the campsites as a powerful reminder to take advantage of each day of summer; winter is always waiting around the corner.
