Description

**An enviromental clean up project that required draining Peña Blanca Lake began in late 2008 and is scheduled to finish May 2009. It is estimated, that after completion, the natural refill of the lake will take about 12 months.**

You’ll find oak-shaded picnic tables a short distance from Peña Blanca Lake at Red Rock Picnic Area. This area is across the lake from the most popular facilities: the boat launch ramp, the lodge, and boat rental, so it is a bit away from the area of heaviest use. There are days, however, when even this out-of-the-way spot can be quite crowded.

Picnic sites at Red Rock are located in a small, grassy, oak-dotted valley at the end of a graveled road. A short walk leads to the lake and the well-used trail that follows its shore line almost all the way around. If you like to fish, you’ll be interested to know that the lake holds bass, catfish, crappie and sunfish. During the cool months of the year it is stocked with trout. If you like to birdwatch, this is a good place to do that, too. It offers a number of species of hummingbirds and warblers (in season), in addition to a variety of waterfowl. If picturesque scenery is what you’re after, that’s provided by the bluffs and mountains that surround the lake.

Tables at Red Rock are a short walk downhill from the parking area, so be sure you don’t pack in anything you don’t want to pack out. No garbage service is provided.
