There is one located in the middle of the nut grove. There is one next to the prairie by Whispering Pines Golf Course.  And, finally, there is one to the east of the Indiana Live Steamers. These may not even have picnic tables in them, and do not have concrete floors. They are open to the public. There is no parking at the Marvin’s Hill site, but some nearby the other shelters.
