A large, outdoor covered pavilion


Picnicking is welcome in the designated picnic areas only. These outdoor pavilions are located next to the environmental education building, near the parking for East Blackhorse Trail, along the Kepple Peninsula Trail, and down the West Blackhorse Trail. This is an excellent location to enjoy a snack while doing some birdwatching. 

The area is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Large, organized groups must apply for a special use permit. Please contact Cassie Roeder, Refuge Manager, for more information. 

Please pack out all trash and be mindful of noise. No smoking, please.
