    Highly recommend

    Camp Kiwanee went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day was extremely special. My husband and I had planned on a rustic wedding with an option to camp and Kiwanee offered both of those options. We also were able to have our favorite caterer, Tennesse's bbq and loved the choice of picking our food vendor. The grounds are beautiful, Needles lodge provides the perfect indoor and outdoor ceremony experience. I worked with Lan and she was amazing the whole time, organized and professional but also cared about my experience and answered my many, sometimes frantic emails. Staying overnight was wonderful for all our friends. The cabins were clean and our bridal cabin was gorgeous and provided other sleeping options as well. We are so grateful for our experience and the memories we will keep.

    I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS!! The staff was incredible. The whole time they were extremely responsive to emails and set everything up exactly as discussed. The venue itself is incredible. We had perfect weather, but even if we didn’t- the hall had AC Incase it was too hot and the wrap around porch would still be amazing in the rain. It was my dream location and everything worked out so wonderful.
