The picnic area is nestled into the rugged hillside and provides the picnicker with a beautiful view of the lake. In addition, a one mile down and back lakeside trail provides the visitor a means to walk off that large picnic lunch. The Howell Run Picnic Area has 26 picnic tables, 13 grills, 3 covered pavilions, a comfort facility with flush toilets, potable water, playground equipment, volleyball court, and two horseshoe pits for our visitors' enjoyment. The 3 covered pavilions each accommodate approximately 50 guests and are equipped with large, group-size grills. The shelters are available for reservations for $50.00/day or can be used on a first-come, first-saved basis.
