Fourteen picnic areas are located along the Parkway. In addition, many overlooks have tables where you may picnic. Generally, picnic areas are open daily until sunset, mid-spring through fall (you can check each area’s opening dates).
You can use camping stoves and self-contained charcoal grills to prepare food at any picnic area. Fires are permitted only in the fire ring provided. Beginning May 1, 2017, only heat-treated firewood that is bundled and certified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) or a state agency may be brought onto the Parkway. For more information, please visit our destructive pests page.
All picnic areas have restrooms.
