Stay Safe, Stay Close to Home

Stay Safe. Stay Close to Home. We recommend exercising close to your home and complying with local and state guidance for not traveling for your recreation needs. If an area is crowded, please search for a less occupied location. 

Picnicking is generally permitted in all areas of the forest.  Although there is a substantial amount of private lands within the forest boundaries--please respect the rights of property owners.  The forest also has a number of designated picnic areas with tables, restrooms, fire rings and potable water.  Some campgrounds also have day use areas suitable for picnicking.
