You do not need a reservation to hike or use our picnic tables. They are first come first serve.
We do offer reservations for our Pavilion for larger groups. We can rent the pavilion for the following occasions:
1. A party. (We cannot rent to Gender Reveal Parties.)
3. Wakes/Celebrations of Life
5. Company, School or business gatherings.
We cannot rent the pavilion for regular meetings, religious services, political rallies or any other violation of local laws or Jackson County Parks + Rec guidelines.
Reservations are on a first come first serve basis and may be made up to 365 days in advance.
We reserve the right to decline any reservation that we see as not within the scope of the mission of the park or potentially a public liability. And declined reservation may be appealed by contacting the Jackson County Parks + Rec Department.
Reservation of the Pavilion is for all day. You will be allowed to set up when the park opens and must be cleared out 30 minutes prior to sunset. Need to know what time sunset is, click here Sunset Calc
Price: Less than 15 people $50.00
15-50 people $75.00
50+ people $150 (Max: 100 people without prior approval)
Depending on the nature of the event and number of expected attending you may be charged a refundable cleaning deposit of 1/2 the cost of the rental. If we have to pick up trash, debris or reset tables you will be charged. Leave it like you found it please.
If you have a class and would like to come out for picnic or to get some fresh air it is FREE. We do ask that you get a reservation so as to assure we do not have multiple classes from different schools at the same time.
We offer Nature/History Tours by appointment. The price is $1 per child. We are negotiable on this with licensed schools. Maximum 30 children per tour. Tours last between 30mins to 60mins depending upon age. If you are interested in a tour please note that below and if you have a specific subject you are studying that we might be able to cover let us know below.
