Picnic shelters can be reserved up to 365 days in advance for events taking place May 1 through September 30 in five regional parks.
The one exception is at Vancouver Lake Regional Park, where picnic shelters can be reserved from Memorial Day weekend through September 30. The ground at Vancouver Lake Regional Park tends to remain rather soggy until the end of May.
You will need to create an account to use the system. Frequently asked questions about online registration can be found at the bottom of the online reservations page. Once you are registered, click on the reservations button near the upper left corner of the screen to reserve picnic shelters.
Phone reservations also can be made by calling (360) 397-2285.
Reservation fees for picnic shelters are $25 to $100 per day, depending on the size of the shelter. The revenue helps pay for parks maintenance and operations.
Picnic shelters not reserved will remain available on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge, as are picnic shelters in all other parks. All picnic shelters are available on a first-come, first-served basis from October 1 through April 30.
