Choose from the following to find a site: Two picnic tables in the shade at Applewhite Picnic Area in Lytle Creek


Picnic areas on the San Bernardino National Forest are varied. Many are accessible to persons with disabilities, some have drinking water on site, and some have fishing nearby. Use picnic sites, and other day use areas only between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. During winter months some locations may be inaccessible due to snow or closed, check with the local Ranger Station for updated conditions.

Wood and charcoal fires may be permitted in developed picnic areas within agency provided fire rings and grills - check current fire restrictions before you go!

Buy it where you burn it! Be aware that firewood can harbor insects and diseases that threaten California's valuable forest resources. Transporting firewood can move these pests to new locations.

Please do not feed wild animals or leave your trash where they can get it.
