Picnic Shelters

There are many group and picnic shelters across the Black Warrior & Tombigbee Lakes that are available for rent. These shelters must be reserved at one of the visitor centers or at the nearest campground gatehouse. Most of the shelters are in our day use parks, however there are also some within the campground for campground use only.

There is a fee to reserve a shelter and the fee varies depending on how large the shelter is and its amenities. Below is a listing off all our shelters and what lake they are part of. To view what shelters are in your area, click on the tabs below to see where our shelters are, what they look like, and what you need to do to reserve them. If you have any questions please call (334) 289-3540 at Demopolis Office, or (205) 553-9373 at our Holt Office.
