Poison Creek Picnic Site

This picnic area in a shady grove of cottonwoods, is located near the eastern end of the Owyhee Uplands Backcountry Byway (a.k.a. Mud Flat Road). This is the only developed recreation spot in this region and includes tables, grills, fire grates, one vault toilet, shaded areas, and a short trail.
