River Point Picnic Area

On the west side of Seeley Lake, this picnic area has a stretch of beach that is a great place for playing in the water or people watching while you relax in the shade of the trees. The picnic area is between the lake and the campground and has room to spread out as well as a gorgeous view of the water, trees, and mountains. What more could a person want? It's perfect for a picnic. The picnic area has tables, fire rings, water, and is very close to the restrooms and parking area. River Point Campground adjoins the picnic area.
