Shelter Reservations

Montgomery County Parks has some great shelters located throughout the county that are perfect places to host a family reunion/company picnic, party or get together! All picnic shelters are available on a first come first serve basis unless they are reserved through a rental. Rental reservations for shelters must be paid for in advance online from this website. Reservations for a park season will open on February 1st. Refunds will not be issued due to weather-related conditions or any other circumstance. We will allow requests for shelter changes on any date that is available during the current park season.

We are committed to providing a healthy, safe park environment for your recreational enjoyment. In order to assist us in continuing to meet this standard, please observe the PARK RULES & REGULATIONS.

Effective February 1, 2014: Payment must be received at the time of making a reservation.  Reservations can be made online or in person at Montgomery County Administration Building, 451 West Third St., Dayton, OH 45422
