Perfect for family reunions and church picnics, enclosed group shelters have tables and chairs for 50 to 250, kitchens, restrooms and adjacent parking. Most have heat and air conditioning, and many have large barbecue pits. Shelters must be vacated by 9:45 p.m. and all vehicles must display a ParkPass ($5). Cancellations must be made at least 30 days in advance and will be assessed a $10 fee.
