Picnic Shelter Information

COMING SOON! Allison Creek Park is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in late Summer 2023. We will begin taking picnic shelter reservations after construction is complete. Stay tuned!

Allison Creek Park has 2 picnic shelters that can be reserved for group events. To check picnic shelter availability or make a reservation, please call the park office at 803-366-6620. Shelter reservations can be made 13 months in advance.

All picnic shelters and picnic tables are available for guests to use on a first-come-first-serve basis unless reserved. We recommend making a picnic shelter reservation in advance if you would like to hold a group event on a Saturday or Sunday.

Shelter rentals are daily from 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM (March-April & September-October), 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM (May-August) and 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM (November - February). 


These shelters have 6 picnic tables and seat 50-60 people. The shelters are equipped with a charcoal grill, water, and an electrical outlet. The rate to reserve is $60 (Monday - Friday) and $80 (weekends and holidays).  


  • Shelter reservations must be cancelled with 30+ days' notice' to receive a full refund. No penalty charged.
  • With 4-29 days' notice, a $10 penalty will be charged.
  • With 0-3 days' notice, there will be no refund.

Shelter reservations can be transferred to a future date to avoid any cancellation fees, if arranged with park staff prior to 10:00 AM on the day of your scheduled shelter reservation.
