New Germany State Park features three unique shelters available for rental.
Tamarack -- This small shelter can hold 40 guests for your special event. It has electricity, picnic tables and grills. It is the perfect site for small family reunions and birthday parties.
Tall Oaks -- This large shelter can comfortably seat up to 75 people. It has electricity and a large fireplace, as well as picnic tables. Weddings and family reunions are common here.
Recreation Hall -- Built by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930s, this building was once alive with piano music, plays and billiard games. Today the recreation hall is the site for many reunions, weddings and other special events. The hall features a prep kitchen, picnic tables, outdoor grills and additional chairs. The Recreational Hall is available from April through October. The facility is wheelchair accessible, however, restrooms are located in a separate building.
