    At Roaring River State Park, over 50 picnic areas and a kid’s playground is located within a short distance of the old CCC Lodge.



    You can reserve two covered shelters, the River Shelter accommodating up to 75 people, and the CCC shelter up to 50 people. These have outdoor grills, picnic tables, power outlets and restrooms. Contact the Roaring River State Park at (417) 847-2539 to reserve the shelters for $50 per day. They’re great for birthday parties, reunions, office escapes, and more. You can use them for free any time you want if they are not reserved!
