Picnic Reservations in the Pavilion

Lake Kandle only reserves picnics for full time patrons (members & full season campers). Dates can be reserved beginning in April. Phone reservations via credit card are encouraged for summer reservations made between April 1st and May 1st.

Want to reserve a picnic in one of the pavilions? Read our policies below.

The Pavilions

Here at Lake Kandle we have Pavilions available for picnic reservation.

Each pavilion/ section is set-up with trash receptacles, picnic tables, and a large charcoal grill. Picnics are encouraged to grill their own food, order pizza from outside vendors, or even have the picnic catered.

If you’re looking to store a cake in a cool space, you may leave your cake in the office. Unfortunately we do not provide storage for ice cream cakes or other frozen treats.

Rules, Policies, and Fees for Picnics

-$25 Non-refundable booking fee. Fee transferrable to Lake Kandle credit for applicable cancellations. Members have until 11AM day of picnic to cancel without penalty. 

-Limited to 35 non members. Group guest rate is $11/guest on weekends, $10 on weekdays.

-All guests subject to guest fee. Member may elect to have gate staff run a guest fee tab and pay by day’s end or have guests pay their own way. Guest lists are ideal for easy entry and settlement. Guests may not be on premises without host member present for duration of guest’s visit.

-Pavilion availability may be restricted by Lake Kandle events such as Halloween, Christmas in July, and Home Swim Meets. On days of Home Swim Meets, parties cannot start until 2pm.

We do not differentiate between “swimming” and “non swimming” guests. Even if a guest is only coming to sing happy birthday and eat cake, they are still subject to the guest fee.

Cancellations made before 11AM on the date of your picnic are eligible to have the pavilion fee transferred to another date or kept on account as Lake Kandle credit.  Guest fees are non-refundable, so we advise you to check the weather conditions the night before or morning of the picnic to determine whether to cancel or not.

Lake Kandle will not host picnics for churches, school field trips, or daycares. Picnics should be reserved for small family gatherings, birthday parties, and graduation parties whereby the member is the sole host of the event. Dealings will not be conducted with 3rd parties or non-members.

If you are reserving a pavilion, please educate guests on Lake Kandle’s safety rules and polices prior to arrival. As a host, you are responsible for your guests’ actions. Thank you and happy picnicking!

Picnics can only be reserved by members and seasonal campers.
