Our largest covered picnic pavilion is located near the Gulf, but does not overlook it.  This pavilion seats 24 to 32 people.  Additionally, there are four smaller pavilions that seat 12 to 16 people apiece; three of these pavilions overlook the Western Lake.

None of the pavilions have any electrical outlets.  All offer a waist-high charcoal grill and water source.  All pavilions are first-come, first-served in terms of availability; they cannot be pre-reserved or guaranteed for special event usage.
