Tanner's Flat Campground and Albion Basin, Little Cottonwood Canyon Professional Review and Guide
"Little Cottonwood Canyon can be quite interesting, but there are not many places to park and access the surrounding terrain. Tanner’s Flat Campground, about halfway up Little Cottonwood, offers both. The campground is heavily vegetated in aspens and conifers, and Little Cottonwood Creek borders the area to the south.
