Tanners Flat Campground is located in Little Cottonwood Canyon, 6 miles from Sandy, UT at 7200 feet.  The canyon is a protected watershed for Salt Lake City so hosts cannot have pets.  There will be two couples at Tanners Flat.  Each couple will share up to 40 hours per week and will have a campsite with water, sewer, and electricity. 

The campsites include picnic tables and campfire rings. Group sites also have grills and serving tables. 

Flush toilets are provided, as is drinking water. A volleyball court is available but campers must bring their own net and ball. Firewood is available for purchase. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Little Cottonwood Creek offers good trout fishing and is a favorite among local fly-fishermen. It is known for its soaring peaks, unique geology, pristine hidden lakes and cascading streams. Numerous hiking and mountain biking trails are in the area. Rock climbing is a popular activity as well.
