Overview

Overview

Bottle Creek Group Picnic Site offers a large, forested haven for groups of up to 200 people to gather and enjoy the outdoors. The facility lies at an elevation of 8,800 feet within the Bottle Creek Campground in the Medicine Bow National Forest.

The area's year-round recreation opportunities offer something for every adventurer and outdoor lover. Hiking, fishing and camping are available nearby.

Natural Features:

The Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland encompass nearly 3 million acres from central and northeastern Wyoming to north-central Colorado.

Lodgepole pine, aspen, fir, spruce and shrubs dominate the landscape of the national forests. The Grassland boasts numerous species of grasses and wildflowers that add color to the landscape during warmer months. The Bottle Creek area is populated with pine and aspen, providing a blanket of shade for picnickers.

Black bear, bobcat, coyote, elk, mule deer and moose are just some of the many animals that inhabit these rich and diverse lands.

Recreation:

Visitors come to Bottle Creek to picnic, fish, hike, camp and relax in the shade of the forest. Fishing for brown and rainbow trout is available on the Encampment and North Fork Encampment River. The adjacent campground is fairly open and makes an excellent base for fall hunting.

Day hiking is popular on the Green Mountain Falls and Encampment River Trails.

Facilities:

The Group Picnic Site has numerous large picnic tables, two serving tables, two large pedestal grills and one large wood grill. Approximately 150 feet of picnic table space have awning poles.

Camping is not permitted in the group picnic site. However, adjacent campsites in Bottle Creek Campground allow for overnight events. The campground offers 12 campsites available on a first-come, first-served basis, and provides picnic tables, toilets, drinking water and fire grates.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors can find many more outdoor opportunities in the surrounding national forests and grasslands, including hiking, biking, camping, horseback and off-road vehicle riding, fishing, hunting, sightseeing and winter sports.
