Picnic Areas

at Lake Wappapello State Park

Pack up the kids and a picnic lunch and spend the day outdoors at one of three picnic areas. Picnic sites are located in the Allison Cove day-use area, at the Allison Point boat ramp area and near Shelter 1. Children's playgrounds are located at the Allison Point day-use area near the beach and at Shelter 1.

Two shelters, featuring picnic tables and an outdoor grill, make the park a perfect venue for family gatherings and special outings. Shelter 1, located in the upper day-use area, has a 75-person occupancy and can be reserved for $50 per day. It is also equipped with electrical outlets. Shelter 2 is in Allison Cove, has a 50-person occupancy and can be reserved for $35 per day. If the shelters are not reserved, they are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Picnicking at the shelter house areas is accessible to persons with disabilities. For reservations, please call the park office at 573-297-3232.


Playgrounds are located in the Allison Cove Day-Use Area near the beach and by Shelter 1.
