Picnicking in the Park

Whether you need an area large enough for a family reunion or an intimate spot for two, you'll enjoy picnicking in the park. Picnic areas are scattered throughout Big South Fork NRRA; some provide grills, and all have tables. All picnic areas are first-come, first-served, with the exception of the shelters at Bandy Creek Campground.

Angle Falls Rapids on the Big South Fork River

The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area protects only 14% of its watershed. Unfortunately it is the lower end of the watershed, so that everything which happens outside the park, impacts the parks water quality.
