The group picnic area has five double tables, a large group area, a serving table, and cooking grills, as well as a large fire pit and amphitheater, ideal for evening storytelling. Smaller, free family picnic sites are also available. Group picnic sites may be reserved through the Reservation Center. The sites have good morning and evening shade, but most get midday sun. Several can accommodate medium-size RV's. The elevation is 8,500 feet, and the area is mostly level.
