Griddle Rental

While guests are welcome to bring their own grill, you can also rent a 30-inch flat surface griddle from Knoebels. Griddles may be reserved 3-10 days before your picnic to take advantage of early reservation pricing. Reservations less than 3 days prior to your event are same day pricing. (Griddle availability is limited)
Early Reservation: $35
Same day: $70
Griddles may be used between the hours of 9am-7pm. Guests are never to light a griddle on their own. Guests experiencing any problems while using the griddle are to contact the park office at 1-800-487-4386 ext. 120 or park security for assistance. Pots, pans or dishes are NOT allowed on griddles. Misuse of griddles may result in forfeiting use for the remainder of the day and future use.

Each pavilion does have at least one outlet and it is first come, first served. We ask that guests share outlets. If you plan to use power bring a heavy duty extension cord and power strip for best results. Tents do not have power.

Due to safety concerns, vehicles are prohibited in our pavilion area. We do have a drop off area near pavilion H (see map here).

We do have a limited number of complimentary wagons available for use to transport your items to your pavilion. They are located at the drop off area.
