Woodville Picnic Site

Sunset reflections over a tidal pool

Tread softly as you enter this delightful picnic area, you could just disturb the forest fairies! If you’re looking for the ideal picnic spot under lush trees and close to a “big tree”, this is it. Ample forest tables to choose from, toilets, water, wheel chair accessible. Bring the kids, they’ll have hours of fun playing in the cool forest stream. There is also a short 2km walk you can do, the Woodville Short Walk.

Facilities: Wooden benches, ablutions, water.

Managed by: SANParks

Permits/Costs: None

Directions:  From the N2 take the Hoekwill turnoff just outside Wilderness (Knysna side), this road becomes the old Knysna-George road, follow it to the turnoff to the picnic site on the left, about 16km in total from Wilderness.

Coordinates: S33 56.058 E22 38.698

Other: Take some dry clothes for the kids to wear after they’ve played in the stream. The water in the stream is safe, the dark colour is due to the tannins and humic acids from the leaves on the forest floor.

Please preserve our environment for our posterity by not littering.
