Can I bring my own charcoal or propane grill and lawn chairs to the parks?
Yes, personal grills (propane preferred) may be brought in for use at the parks but their location must be approved by a Park Ranger. You are encouraged to bring your own lawn chairs. There is no cooking allowed in the shelters or under any tents.
