Picnic Areas and Shelters

Rib Mountain State Park

Picnicking is very popular at Rib Mountain. There are several picnic tables, two playgrounds and a reservable amphitheater at the park. Pets are not permitted in the picnic areas.

Reservable shelters

Enjoy concerts, weddings and other programs with the Wisconsin countryside as a backdrop on top of Rib Mountain State Park.

Reservations may be made up to 11 months in advance of your event. For reservations, please see below.

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.
