Located right on the edge of Winter Rim 55 minutes southeast of Paisley, Oregon, The Fremont Point Day Use Area offers a dramatic, windswept landscape with commanding views. Mesmerizing vistas include Summer Lake, the Great Basin and distant mountain ranges. Perched on a vertical rocky overlook at over 7,000 feet in elevation, this open, sagebrush setting is an ideal place for a scenic picnic or quiet afternoon.
Amenities include a picnic table and vaulted toilet. Alert: There is no potable water. Visitors need to bring an adequate supply of water.
Provides access to Fremont National Recreation Trail from the day use area. This multi-use trail features hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding opportunities for miles. Less than a half mile beyond the day use area on a primitive road lies the Fremont Point Cabin, available by reservation only.
