Picnic Facilities — Picnic Shelters & Group Shelters

Picnic Shelter  

Picnic Shelters:  We’ve Got You Covered

All state parks except Sapelo Island have covered picnic tables that may be reserved up to 13 months in advance and are available on a first-come basis if not reserved. These open-air shelters include several tables assembled under a single roof and sometimes a barbecue pit or grills. Parking and restrooms are nearby. Shelters must be vacated by 9:45 p.m. Rates range from $15–$90, and all vehicles in the group must display a ParkPass ($5).

Group Shelter  

Group Shelters:  Special Event Facilities

Perfect for family reunions and church picnics, enclosed group shelters have tables and chairs for 50 to 250, kitchens, restrooms, heat and air conditioning, and adjacent parking. Many have large barbecue pits. Shelters must be vacated by 9:45 p.m. Fees range from $40–$200, and all vehicles in the group must display a ParkPass ($5). Cancellations must be made at least 30 days in advance and will be assessed a $10 fee.
