Collins Creek Picnic Area Review

The largest developed picnic area in the park, Collins Creek has 182 picnic tables. Collins Creek, which runs near the picnic area, is a small stream with above-average trout fishing. The site has restrooms with flush toilets, potable water, and a 70-seat pavilion for groups that can be reserved in advance for $20.
