An open picnic shelter, built by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s, can be reserved for $35 per day (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.). It can accommodate approximately 40 people. If not reserved, it is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The shelter has two large fireplaces, three picnic grills, several picnic tables, water (April 15 through Oct. 31) and electricity. An accessible vault toilet and playground are nearby.
