Picnic Areas

at Crowder State Park

To keep the kids entertained, there are two conveniently-located playground areas -- one in the campground and one by shelter house #1.

If you are planning a large gathering of friends or family, rent one of the two open picnic shelters at a rate of $35 per day. If not reserved, the shelters are available daily on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge. One enclosed shelter is available by reservation only at a rate of $50 per day. The enclosed shelter is fully furnished for events such as receptions and reunions, and is equipped with a sink, stove,refrigerator, heater and fireplace. (A vault toilet is in close proximity.) Reservations can be made up to 11 months in advance by calling 660-359-6473. All three shelters are equipped with outdoor grills. The park also has 25 picnic areas throughout the park.

To reserve a shelter, contact the park to check for availability by calling 660-359-6473. If available, fill out the Shelter Reservation Application and mail it to the park for approval. Submission of this application does not guarantee reservation of the shelter.
