Dolly Copp Pavilion

Located along the Peabody River, this site has ample opportunity for small family picnics or large group gatherings. The large picnic pavilion, originally constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936, was rebuilt in 1996 using many of the original timbers, along with trees planted by the same 1936 CCC crew.

The pavilion has a large stone fireplace and numerous picnic tables. Other amenities include 2 metal grills, drinking water, flush toilets and handwash sinks. The Dolly Copp Picnic Pavilion is available for rent for family gatherings, wedding receptions, or other group events.

The Dolly Copp Picnic Area is adjacent to the historic Dolly Copp Campground, the Peabody River, as well as several scenic driving and recreational opportunities.
