Picnic Shelters

There are several picnic shelters on site. These shelters are first come, first serve, and may not be reserved. Be mindful that you are in nature's home at all times while at Circle B Bar Reserve. Unlike a park, this is a wildlife Reserve. Therefore, while we encourage visitors to enjoy the Reserve, we do not allow: music, balloons, tape, sticky adhesives, motorized vehicles outside of the parking lots, no grills or fryers (except for those already provided), volleyball nets, or other games at the picnic shelters. For any questions regarding the guidelines of the picnic shelters, please call 863-668-4673 x209. We appreciate your assistance in protecting the wildlife at this Reserve.


There are two locations for restrooms. The indoor restrooms available are located in the Exhibit Hall during the hours of operation (Tuesday – Saturday from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. and Sundays from 12 P.M. to 4 P.M.). If you are on site before or after hours there are portable restrooms located next to the parking area, as well as near the entrance to the Reserve.
