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 walked across the street from our lodging knowing nothing about this little place and found a jewel. Best pizza we've had in a very long time. Great people and great food. You can't beat this wood fired pizza !

Delicious! Wood fired pizzas made from scratch. Sandwiches piled high with anything you can imagine, all fresh! And a warm bread pudding with Jack Daniel's sauce that does make you warm and tingly inside! Yum! Menu states they will prepare box lunches for a day in the park if desired.

We were in Estes Park for the Highland Games, and stumbled across this restaurant. Pretty much all of us are "foodies", and we were all just SO impressed by the brick fired pizza that we had here. Great crust, fresh-fresh-fresh ingredients, great flavor! Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone. (Praying it survived the flooding!!)

I have come down hard on places that advertise brick oven and you go in and see a gas oven covered in brick. Not the case here. We are spoiled on brick oven pizza, thin crust, crisp, not so much cheese (more is just more, simple ingredients. But, they do take attention. Our pizza could have been turned a couple of times to evenly melt the cheese. The salad we got was awesome. Great service, takes a little time. Would I go back? Absolutely.
