Get your friends and bring some food in order to enjoy all the amenities that Lake Wauburg has to offer. After swimming, boating, or climbing you might work up an appetite. Lake Wauburg has picnic tables, grills, and pavilions available at North Park and South Shore to accommodate that instinctive Gator need for food, fun, and camaraderie. While the picnic tables and grills are available first-come-first-serve, the pavilions can be reserved in advance for student groups of 50 or more. Reservations should be made no later than 2 weeks (14 days) before the event and are subject to availability. Bring some burgers and chips and enjoy a day at the lake with your friends, family, or classmates.
