Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the two main picnic areas located at both public beaches. These areas include tables, outdoor grills, restroom facilities (open seasonally) and playground equipment nearby.
Two open picnic shelters can be reserved for a variety of large outings and family gatherings accommodating as many as 50-100 guests. The shelters, one at each beach, can be reserved at a rate of $50 per day. To reserve a shelter, contact the park to check for availability by calling 573-348-2694. 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 shelters are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. The shelter at Public Beach #1 (near the campground) is equipped with electricity.
