Cottonwood Picnic Area

Most of the land between Oakley and Smith and Morehouse Canyon is privately owned. The Cottonwood Picnic Area is a small Forest Service picnic area on the Weber River.

I stopped at the location in September 2008 to check the place out. This is a nice picnic area for locals. For the rest of the world, I would recommend going the extra twenty miles up the road.
