Group Picnicking

Looking for the perfect summertime place to gather with family and friends? Each district of the forest provides a place for group picnics. Picnic shelters and attractions such as ball fields or scenic views are available at some picnic areas. You may also picnic in the general forest area unless area closed signs are posted.

Commercial outfitters or guides and groups of 75 people or more must obtain a Special Use permit. Contact the District Ranger...
