Group Picnic Shelters

Reserve a Group Picnic ShelterVisitors enjoying a day at one of Center Hill Lake's reservable group shelters

The Corps of Engineers manages several picnic areas on Center Hill Lake.  At some of these scenic, relaxing areas, you will find group picnic shelters.  Four of these shelters may be reserved (for a fee) up to 360 days in advance.  Reservations may be made through the National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRS) no less than four days before your picnic date.  When a shelter is not reserved, it is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Shelters are available for reservation from April until October.

To reserve a shelter, click on one of the Book Now! links below or contact the National Recreation Reservation Service at 1-877-444-6777 or at http://recreation.gov.
