Grilling in State Parks

You may grill or barbecue in many state parks using either your own gas or charcoal grill or a charcoal grill on site.

Many of our state parks offer the perfect setting to grill lunch or dinner with friends and family. Here you will find some general information about using grills in parks across the state. 

Please check individual park pages to see if grilling is allowed and other specific details.

  • Most parks allow you to bring in gas grills.
  • When using a charcoal grill, be sure to cool and dispose of your used charcoal in a fireproof container.
