Picnic Areas

at Long Branch State Park


Find a quiet spot for lunch and a scenic view at one of the picnic sites scattered under trees and along the lake.

Picnic Shelters

Reserve one of two open picnic shelters for $40 per day. Each shelter can accommodate approximately 60 people. If not reserved, the shelters are available on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge. Both shelters are equipped with electricity, picnic tables, an outdoor grill and restroom facilities nearby. The South Shelter is accessible and has a playground nearby.

Shelter Reservations

To reserve a shelter, contact the park to check for availability by calling 660-773-5229. 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.


Playground equipment is located at the South Shelter and in the campground.
