Lily Lake Southside Picnic Area

The Lily Lake Southside Picnic Area is a small clearing with picnic tables.

A quarter-mile, wheelchair-accessible trail leads around the south side of Lily Lake to the Southside Picnic Site. It is tucked back in the forest with glimpses of Longs Peak, Mount Meeker, Twin Sisters, Lily Mountain and Lily Lake through the trees. This site offers the beauty of Lily Lake with a bit more seclusion from the crowds. This area is also the only location in the park that you can hold a reception; however a separate permit must be issued for this.
