Picnic Areas and Shelters
Rib Mountain State Park
Picnicking is very popular at Rib Mountain. There are several picnic areas with tables, two playgrounds, reservable shelters and a reservable amphitheater on top of the park. Please remember pets are not permitted in the picnic areas.
Reservations may be made up to 11 months in advance of your event. For reservations of the different facilities, please see below. The application form for the gathering space does not guarantee your reservation - the property office will notify you when your reservation has been confirmed. Both the Northern Vista Shelter and CCC Gazebo can be reserved online. Vehicle admission stickers are required on all vehicles.
Friends Gathering Space
The Friends Gathering Space is located across the entrance road from the amphitheater. The Gathering Space is available for reservation from May 1 through Sept. 30. Rental fee rates are determined by user group classifications and day/time of the week.
