Sitting on the edge of Winter Rim at 7,000 feet, Fremont Point Day Use Area is a great place to take in the surrounding landscapes. From the day use area you can see the lakes, the high desert, and the mountain ranges in the distance.  

The site includes a small parking area, vault toilets, picnic table, and it is the perfect spot for a picnic lunch. There is no potable water or garbage collection on site. Be sure to pack-in and pack-in out everything you need.

There are many trails in the Fremont-Winema National Forest that are popular among hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders. During the winter the area is popular with cross-country skiers and snowmobilers. For those looking for a longer adventure, the Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 is almost 135 miles in length, broken up into Northern, Middle and Southern sections. Much of the area has been affected by wildfires and beetles, which can make the trail hard to distinguish.  

Also on the point, 3,000 feet above Summer Lake, sits the Fremont Point Cabin. The reconstructed cabin opened in 2015 after the original 1931 cabin burned down in the 2002 Winter Rim fire that greatly scorched the landscape. Originally the cabin was for those who manned the lookout, and now it is available for rent.
