"The creek runs above and below Tibble Fork Reservoir in American Fork Canyon. Just 45 minutes from the Salt Lake Valley and closer to Provo, this creek is a popular destination for anglers looking to squeeze in a couple of hours of fishing. American Fork Creek is also a great place to introduce children to stream fishing. However, caution is required during early spring when high water makes the stream dangerous. The best access is along the narrow Highway 92, which runs up the canyon, and at the campground on the opposite side of the creek. Campgrounds and picnic areas are located along the river and near the reservoir. Open camping is allowed above the reservoir. A user fee is required to enter the canyon. Timpanogos Cave National Monument is also found in American Fork Canyon."
