Picnic Point is situated above sprawling local scenery, offering tremendous views and several opportunities for fun and relaxation. As part of the Boise National Forest, Picnic Point contains opportunities for hiking, birdwatching, fishing, and cycling among its dazzling array of offerings.
Warm Lake is a great fishing opportunity for campers. Avid anglers regularly see several different species of trout during the proper season. As the lake partially surrounds the campgrounds, most guests can grab their equipment and be fishing at the shore in just a few steps.
Camping at Picnic Point isn't for the faint of heart. The tent-only campsites can only be accessed via hike, so be prepared to put some distance between yourself and the parking lot as you make your way uphill. All overnight areas come with a grilling station along with the other standard amenities. The campground is pretty dog-friendly, offering a few options for short walks or potty breaks. Guests can take any of three different staircases down from the bluff that Picnic Point is situated on, all of which will get them to parts of the surrounding shoreline.
If your canine is itching for more of a prolonged walk than a trip to the shore and back can offer, there are quite a few hiking opportunities at Picnic Point. The WeWuKiye Trail No. 252 is a great, recently renovated stretch that has an entrance a few short steps away from the campground. Normal canine rules apply here, so make sure you've got Fido leashed up while picking up any doggy debris they might leave behind them.
No swimming opportunities are offered within the campground area, but public swimming beaches are available in a few areas just outside of Picnic Point. Keep in mind that any activities not associated with Picnic Point may incur additional costs. If you've got Fido along with you, it's wise to reach out to any surrounding attractions before your visit.
