Reservable Facilities

You can reserve the following facilities at this park:

Picnic Shelter

Unreserved picnic shelters are available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis. However, the shelters are very popular, so reservations are strongly suggested.

The picnic shelter is located at the end of the park road at the trail head area. It accommodates up to 75 people. Includes fireplace, large grill and drinking fountain. Restrooms are nearby (spring and summer only). The shelter is handicap accessible, but the restrooms are not. Handicapped accessible restrooms are available at the park office year-round.
