The picnic area is located near the visitor center. The access road is located just to the west of the visitor center parking area. You can drive directly to the picnic area or walk from the visitor center along a short (0.1 mile) trail.
The park and picnic area are open for day use only; camping is not allowed. Mild temperatures and low humidity provide pleasant opportunities in all seasons. Reservations are not accepted; the picnic area generally does not fill to capacity. Fires are permitted only in grills, but may be prohibited during high fire danger. Hunting, woodcutting, and gathering of minerals and vegetation are prohibited. Pets should never be left unattended in vehicles and must be kept on a leash.
There are 25 sites located beneath the trees, multiple ramada structures, and several water faucets and fountains. Restrooms are accessible to persons in wheelchairs, and the area is relatively level. Outdoor grills are provided for cooking fires. Visitors need to bring their own charcoal or wood, as no wood gathering is allowed. Overnight camping is prohibited. A Special Use Permit is required for activities in the picnic area with more than 25 people.
