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.

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 and guest count.

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 day cares. 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.
