Description: September 17, 2013 following the Disastrous Colorado Floods...Picnic In The Park will Re- Open on February 1st. 2014 and Ready to Serve Estes Park Locals and Visitors!Picnic In The Park is a Wood Fired Pizzeria and Deli located at 552 W. Elkhorn Avenue in Estes Park, CO, just West of Downtown and 4 miles from the main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park located next to the historic Elkhorn Lodge on the Big Thompson River. Picnic In The Park features authentic Neapolitan style wood fired pizza using Italian imported "00" Caputo flour, Italian imported San Marzano tomatoes which are grown at the base of Mt. Vesuvius in the rich volcanic soil near Naples and we use only the best high quality, freshly prepared, natural and low to no preservative ingredients available. Our NY Style Deli Sandwich is famous and touted as the best in town and true to and rivaling those on the east coast. The quality of our food and the wood firing shines through in the great taste experience you will have with any menu choice at Picnic In The Park. In the summer season, Picnic In The Park turns on its Rotisserie Oven and roasts chicken, corn on the cob (seasonally available) and serves traditional style picnic sides like potato salad and baked beans. We will create you a wonderful picnic basket meal in a traditional picnic basket or backpack that you can take along and treat your family to in the park or at our outdoor seating. Or try a great sandwich and snacks stuffed in your backback for a majestic RMNP hike. When you are finished with your day in the beauty of RMNP, treat yourself and your hungry family to a wonderful mouth-watering pizza hand made and fired to perfection in just minutes. Picnic In The Park prides itself on Friendliness, Cleanliness, and Quality and we work hard to be consistent in all of these areas so that every customer experience is as good and as important as the last. We not only greet you when you come in but we greet you when you leave, we are always happy to meet new people and visit with both new and old friends. We are newly remodeled, with modern yet rustic decor, and we provide an atmosphere that is not only inviting but interesting to experience. Our wood fired pizza making is an art, an Estes Park experience, and a memory to make. Don't miss this fantastic option during your next Estes Park visit, stop in and give us a try! Delivery available.

We ordered a BYO pizza made with pepperoni, mushrooms and extra cheese, and it was fabulous! This restaurant was a great find in Estes Park, and we would highly recommend it.

This opened in October and we had not been there yet. Our loss. Great pizza and don't miss the homemade bread pudding. We will definitely be going here a lot this summer. Seating is limited so consider ordering ahead or taking it to go.

SNAP! This is the best pizza in town. Service, flavor, gluten free options and a friendliness that's contagious. And that's just the cake. The icing is when you get out of your car and the aroma from the wood burning oven that's wafting from the chimney engulfs your senses and sets your palate a water.

We stumbled upon this place on our way through Estes park. So glad we did, as the food was delicious and the owner is very focused on the best customer service possible, which is what we got. The place is very clean, and we will be sure to stop by when we are in the area again!
