Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of three picnic areas located at both public beaches and the McCubbins Point area of the park. These areas include tables, outdoor grills, restroom facilities (open seasonally) and playground equipment nearby.

Picnic Shelters

Two open picnic shelters can be reserved for a variety of large outings and family gatherings accommodating as many as 50 to 100 guests. The shelters, one at each beach, can be reserved at the rates listed below. If not reserved, the shelters are available at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Water is available at both shelters.

Shelter Reservations

To reserve a shelter, contact the park to check for availability by calling 573-348-2694. If a shelter is 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.


Playgrounds are available near each picnic area.
