Group Camping Areas

Group Pavilions are available by reservation only. Reservations may be made at the park, through or by calling 1-877-444-6777.

Vehicle and Person Capacity limits are strictly enforced.  If your gathering may exceed these limits or is an event requiring use of any other park amenity such as a boat ramp, picnic, beach or parking area, you may be required to have a Lake Activity Permit. Events requiring a Lake Activity Permit, in addition to above include, but are not limited to, fishing tournaments, sporting events and any event where attendees are required to pay a fee to attend, prizes are awarded or the nature of the event may infringe or disrupt the use of the park or portion of the park (other than the group pavilion area) by the general public.

There is currently no cost for the permit. The permit is required to assist us with controlling overcrowding of park/lake facilities. Permits are limited and are issued on a First Come First Served basis. The number of permits are regulated through the Belton/Stillhouse Hollow Lake Office.

If you or your organization are needing a permit you must request a LAKE ACTIVITY PERMIT by filling out a Lake Activity Permit Form a minimum of 14 days (30 days in advance is preferred) to 365 days in advance prior to the date of the event. Each request will be evaluated for potential adverse impact on public safety, park facilities & utility systems, sanitation and natural resources.

If you have any questions feel free to contact a Park Ranger at 254-742-3050.
