Picnic Shelters

The park has three picnic shelters, which can be reserved for $50 per day. The shelters are available for use from sunrise to sunset 365 days per year. None of the shelters have electricity, but restroom facilities and water fountains and spigots are available at each shelter. Water is available during the on-season (April 15 to Oct. 31) only. If not reserved, the shelters are available on a first-come, first served basis.
