Picnic at Moss Creek Day Use Area

Picnic Areas in Land Between The Lakes

Packing a sack lunch or bring a nice spread from home for your family is a fun and practical way to enjoy a full day in Land Between The Lakes.

There are several places throughout the park that offer picnic tables, grills and vault toilets for you to crash and relax during your visit to LBL. You can also rent a pavilion for large groups for a great afternoon retreat!

Of course, you don't have to be in a designated picnic area to enjoy lunch!  For there's nothing like throwing down a blanket and spread along the lakes' shores.  But if you prefer tables and facilities, here is a listing of the designated picnic areas around Land Between The Lakes.
