Picnic Shelters

Picnic shelter reservations are available at several parks on Allatoona Lake. These shelters are ideal for family reunions, birthday parties or company gatherings. All shelters have dedicated grills, electrical outlets, lights, water fountains and water spigots. Restroom facilities are located nearby all shelters.

Shelter reservations are available March 1 thru October 31, but be sure to check with the Allatoona Lake Project Management Office prior to booking because availability and dates are subject to change. Shelter reservations can be made up to 365 days in advance by calling the National Recreation Reservation Service at 1-877-444-6777 or at www.recreation.gov. Cooper Branch #1 is no longer available through reservation and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

A credit or debit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa) is required to make a shelter reservation and payment is due at the time the reservation is made.  A service fee will be charged to change the date, location, or to cancel the reservation once it is reserved. Day-use fees are not charged to persons using the shelter if the shelter has been reserved and the fee paid. If the shelter is used on a first-come, first-served basis, a Day-use fee is charged to each vehicle.
