Perfect for family reunions and get-togethers, the park offers an open picnic shelter, which can be reserved for $60 per day. It is located across from the park office and can occupy up to 100 persons. To reserve the shelter, contact the park to check for availability by calling 417-334-4704. 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 your group is smaller, picnic areas with tables, outdoor grills, restroom facilities and new playground equipment are located nearby. Some facilities are offered on a seasonal basis only. There is no charge and individual picnic sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
