Bring a meal and enjoy the park grounds while you eat. The park picnic area is open the same hours as the park visitor center, 9 am to 5 pm (October 1st - April 30th) and 9 am to 4 pm (May 1st - September 30th), seven days per week (we are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Independence Day). The covered picnic shelters are generally not reserved and it is hoped that visitors will share the resource if necessary.
Public restrooms are located at the front of the visitor center. Trash cans and recyclable plastic and can collection stations are located at both shelter areas.
Pets need to be on a leash or under strict physical control at all times. You are required to clean up pet waste and prevent pet damage to the park.
Do not feed park wildlife. It is harmful to the animals to eat people food and to become dependent on people for their meals.
One of the covered picnic shelters has an outdoor kitchen. There is a fee to use this kitchen and reservations are required. You can read the details for reserving this area in the permits section of this website.
