Shelby Forest in beautiful but obviously needed some major attention. The picnic tables were in a state of disrepair and quite frankly, I would not want to eat off them. The lodge looked run down too. The state needs to invest in this natural beauty,...More

I would visit the pavilions, and see which you like. One of the pavilions is closed (#3 or #5?) But is a nice shaded area.
