Bringing your group to the Parks
Reservations for picnic pavilions and group campsites may be made up to eleven months in advance. If you are bringing a group to a park, whether or not you rent a pavilion, you will be asked to fill out a Group Use Agreement and to call the park at least two weeks in advance, to discuss details of your visit with the park ranger so that we may serve your group to the best of our ability.
