These areas have tables, charcoal grills and toilets. The grills are charcoal grills that you provide your own charcoal. Weborg Point, Welcker's Point and Nicolet Beach each have a large group grill.

Water and flush toilets are available at some of the picnic areas (typically May 1 - Oct 31). Welcker's and Weborg picnic areas also have indoor shelters with fireplaces (wood not provided).

Reservable Shelters

Peninsula has two reservable shelters, at Welcker's and Weborg picnic areas. Each can accommodate 50 people. The shelters are accessible during regular day-use park hours, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Picnic areas and limited parking are adjacent to shelters. The shelters are reservable for a fee and if not reserved, are open to the public. Pets are not allowed at any picnic areas or in shelters. Large group grills for cooking are available at both reservable shelters.
