Picnic Areas

Accessible SymbolNorth Picnic Area

This scenic picnic area was designed for everyone to enjoy. Located on a bluff overlooking the lake is a shelter with two handicap parking spaces. An adjacent pathway leads past a water fountain to the shelter, where you will find group grills, electrical outlets and extended-end picnic tables. The view is breathtaking. This shelter accommodates up to 100 people and can be reserved.

Also in the area are three accessible individual picnic sites, all of which have a handicap parking space, pathway, extended-end table and pedestal grill. An accessible vault toilet is centrally located and a second water fountain is found at the far end of the area.

South Day-Use Area

This mostly sunny area has a great view of the lake. Paved parking is an average 5.8 percent slope and the path leading to the shelter is an average 8.5 percent slope. This shelter is not considered accessible; but it does contain two extended-end tables. The shelter accommodates up to 50 people and has two group grills. The most limiting barrier is the vault toilet, which has not been modified. The closest accessible restroom would be in the campground.

Other Picnic Areas

Two other picnic areas are located along the main road. They have not been modified for accessibility.

Beach Area

Although the parking area is level, the beach is not accessible due to the long, steep pathway leading down to the sand. There are two handicap parking spaces.

Two picnic sites are found in this area. One has a fine gravel path off the road and an extended-end picnic table. Both have pedestal grills.
