Renting a Pavilion at Independence Lake
Pavilions are for use on a rental basis only. Pavilion Applications can be mailed upon request or downloaded. Pavilions are rented on a first come first served basis, and can not be reserved without a completed application and payment of rental fees (cash/check/credit).
Rental applications are accepted on the first business day in October for the following year. This process begins at 8:30 a.m. at the park office. Applications are accepted at the Independence Lake office, as well as by mail. A copy of the application will be returned to you confirming your rental date. If your requested date has already been reserved, we will call you immediately to find an alternative shelter or date.

**Cancellation Policy: Refunds will not be given unless the date is reserved by another party.  In this case, a $10 processing fee will be charged.  Please call (734)449-4437 for more details.
