Picnic Areas

at Pershing State Park

Whether your group is large or small, you will find the perfect spot for a picnic lunch or family gathering. Several picnic sites, an enclosed picnic shelter with kitchen facilities and an open shelter with water and electricity are available in the park. The enclosed shelter is $60 to rent for the day and requires a reservation. The open shelter is available on a first-come, first-served basis or may be reserved in advance for $40. Both shelters have playground equipment and suit large family gatherings or special outings well. Please call the park office at 660-963-2299 for more information or reservations.

To reserve a shelter, contact the park to check for availability. 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.
