Picnic Shelters

We've Got You Covered

Picnic ShelterAll 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.

Things to Know about Picnic Facilities

  • Picnic Shelters and Group Shelters are open 10 a.m.–9:45 p.m. Events must end by 9:45 p.m.
  • All vehicles in the group must display a ParkPass. A ParkPass is the daily parking fee ($5) required at all Georgia State Parks.
  • Cancellations: Shelter fees will be refunded, minus a $10 fee, if cancelled at least 30 days in advance. Reservation dates may be transferred once with no additional fee.
