Picnic Areas

at Harry S Truman State Park

The eastern end of the park provides you with an opportunity to relax at one of the many shaded picnic sites.

This section of the park also has an open shelter, which can be reserved at a rate of $40 per day, and is perfect for large family gatherings and special group outings. The shelter can accommodate approximately 130 guests and is equipped with picnic tables, two large outdoor grills, electricity and restroom facilities nearby.To reserve the shelter, contact the park to check for availability by calling 660-438-7711. 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. If not reserved, the shelter is available at no charge, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The picnic areas are open May through September.

Children’s playgrounds are also located in the vicinities of the campground and the open shelter.
