The eastern end of the park provides you with an opportunity to relax at one of the many shaded picnic sites. The picnic areas are open May through September.

Picnic Shelter

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. It is accessible to people with disabilities. If not reserved, the shelter is available at no charge, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Shelter Reservations

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.

Playgrounds

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