picnic shelter


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 1 is located at the South Shelter and Playground 2 is in the campground.
