What is the Standard Size of a Picnic Table?

Most wood picnic tables have a standard set of dimensions for width, length, and height. Keep reading so you can plan your backyard entertainment space.


A standard picnic table seats six adults and measures about six feet long (allowing 24 inches of personal space between each adult).


Picnic table height, from ground to tabletop, ranges from 28 to 32 inches. Benches are usually 17 to 18 inches off the ground which offers between 10 and 14 inches of space between the bench and tabletop. This standard size allows enough room for the average adult to comfortably get in and out of the table.


A tabletop width typically ranges from 27 to 30 inches and comfortably fits six table settings along with drinks, condiments, and fixings. The entire width of the picnic table, from bench to bench is around 60 inches.
