Tibble Fork Reservoir
About The Location
Tibble Fork Reservoir is a beautiful location for any type of shoot you would like to do. Its a very popular place for photographers, and on some days I have seen up to 20 different photographers shooting bridals, engagements, family and modeling pictures here. Tibble Fork has mountain views that are breath taking, a beautiful green lake, and a shore lined with beautiful pine trees. Its perfect for shooting in the summer, fall and winter months when the lake freezes over. On the southern end of the lake is a dirt trail that leads through the forest. On the north end is a road lined with a with a wooden fence that winds it way up the mountain and provides for some amazing mountain views.
There is a large parking lot that accommodates about 80 vehicles, but the parking lot, especially on weekends, can fill up quick.
Visitors to American Fork Canyon are charged a $6 entrance fee that is good for up to three days. A week pass is $12 and an annual pass is $45. However, I recommend that you purchase a National Parks pass for $80 which covers more than 2,000 federal recreation sites across the country, including all the national parks. You can purchase one here.
