Our picnic areas, (B &C) have 15 picnic tables and are right across the grass from any of these 3 parking lots:

1)  just past the bathroom pavilion there is a parking lot (to your left).  Walk straight across the grass.

2)  if that lot is full, the road turns to the right and there is another parking lot.  Walk straight across the grass.

3)  if that lot is full, the road turns to the right again and there is another parking lot back towards the freeway.

Go slightly to your right and walk across the grass.

Any parking lot works.
