Picnicking at Clinton Lake
Day use areas are located around the lake with tables, stoves, water, playground equipment and toilet facilities. Accessible shelters at the Mascoutin and Weldon access areas have electricity. Weldon also has an open, grassy area along the shoreline for softball or fishing. A nearby wooded picnic area provides shaded protection during those long, hot summer days. The Mascoutin shelter has a great view of the lake. Shelters may be reserved for a fee by using the Reserve America website at www.reserveamerica.com
