Picnic Shelter Reservation Information

|+

Reservation Rules

Maximum party size differs according to each facility. Visit the park's web page or Discover Camping for details.

Full pre-payment of all shelter use fees and reservation charges is required to secure a reservation. Reservation holders must be at least 16 years of age and are responsible for the actions of all party members.

Reservations for picnic shelters can be made up to 12 months in advance of your arrival date.

Reservations are not transferable. Any reservation owners or holders found to be transferring or selling their reservations to another party, risk the chance that their reservation may be cancelled without a refund. If a customer can no longer use their reservation, they are encouraged to cancel it so that any unused user fees that are not forfeited as a penalty, can be refunded to the credit card used to make the original reservation.

Check-in time for group picnic shelters is typically 8:00 AM; check out time is typically 8:00 PM. Users are required to confirm park-specific operating times. See the park’s webpage or contact the park operator.

Refunds are given for an eviction, vacating your campsite early, or inclement weather.
