Picnic Point (UW Lakeshore Nature Preserve)

2000 University Bay, Madison, WI 53705
OVERVIEW

Picnic Point, a nearly mile-long peninsula along Lake Mendota’s south shore, is among Madison’s most distinctive features and is probably the most popular destination in the Preserve. Each year thousands of students and Madisonians visit the Point for outings. While the Lakeshore Nature Preserve provides opportunities for outdoor recreation, its main priorities are to protect natural and cultural resources and to serve as an outdoor laboratory for teaching and research by UW-Madison students, faculty and staff. Certain activities that conflict with these priorities are not permitted.
