Enjoy a picnic lunch or just relax in this very picturesque setting. Two picnic tables are located along the trail to the mill, facing the mill pond. One of these is accessible and can be accessed by vehicle by contacting site staff. Five picnic tables with pedestal grills are located at the parking lot area, where there is also a covered, accessible shelter. Large groups wanting to use the shelter should make reservations two weeks in advance by calling the historic site at 573-244-3120. There is a $25 fee to reserve the shelter. If not reserved, the shelter is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
