Three shelters at Lake Crabtree are available for rental. Each shelter has a grill and tables, as well as its own horseshoe pit. Those renting shelters can check out horseshoes and volleyballs at no extra charge. This may be done at the Maintenance Facility, which is the first driveway on the left after entering the park. Only one shelter is reservable per day.

Reservations can be made in person Mon.–Thur., 9 a.m.–1 p.m. 
at the park office or by calling 919-460-3390.

Same-day rentals are not available. Cancellations due to rain are not allowed. Unreserved shelters may be used free of charge, on a first-come, first-served basis.
