  • This area has it all. The picnic area gorgeous and clean and plenty of space. It's located off the Skyline Drive at mile marker 24. 1 and is open year-round. There is even a little store which holds camping supplies, food and you can even buy gifts. There's also plenty of overlooks and Hikes to do nearby so plan your day wisely. Hopefully this helps you out some.
