Scenic picnic areas can be found at any of our 75 Ohio state parks. Shady spots, sunny meadows, and lakeside locations all offer picnic areas for day-use visitors. Visitors can enjoy the grills and picnic tables scattered throughout the areas. A number of these lovely locales offer drinking water and restrooms or latrines nearby. Playgrounds and trail kiosks may also be located nearby.
Most parks also have one or more shelterhousese available for a fee through the Ohio State Parks reservation system.**
**Due to COVID-19, only open-air shelters are available and no reservation is needed. Visitors are asked to limit gatherings to less than 10 and practice appropriate social distancing.
