Despite dealing with a rainy day, the ceremony was beautiful inside and everything went off without a hitch. Great value and turned out beautiful. The staff was very personable and accommodating. Made things easy and our guests had a fantastic time. We received a lot of compliments on the venue.

I had my wedding there on August 5, 2018. My husband and I along with our guest were very happy with he beautiful hall. It's a great place to have a wedding, and would certainly recommend this hall to anyone.

We had our wedding here 3 weeks ago in the event center and we could not have picked a better place! The venue is beautiful and the staff was very easy to work with. The bartender (hired through American Wilderness) was beyond amazing! He came up to the head table periodically to check and see if we needed anything else. Would recommend this location to anyone looking to have a beautiful rustic (and air conditioned) wedding! :)
We cater numerous events at American Wilderness Campgrounds annually. The facility is beautiful and makes a great location for wedding receptions.
Great Location and Facility for your Special Day... The Staff is attentive, and professional and you can even do a Private Beach Wedding.
Great venue, fun, friendly and family oriented.
