Reserve a picnic shelter

Picnic shelter reservations allow for exclusive use of a shelter for an entire day (typically 8:00 am to 9:30 pm). When no reservation is in place, these shelters are open to all park users on a first-come, first-served basis. Park staff clean and stock park restrooms daily, typically from May 1 – September 30 (season may vary slightly from year to year). Please be aware that there are NO services (e.g. restroom, electricity and water) prior to May 1st and after September 30th.
