    Our day was perfect!

    My husband and I got married at Camp Kiwanee on Saturday and I am still over the moon with how amazing our day was. The rustic look and lake was just so perfect. It exceeded our expectations. Dori is also so lovely to work with!

    Magical Memories

    It was magical!!! Beyond my expectations. The staff were incredible. So helpful and accommodating. We had 70 guests at the wedding/reception. 50 guests stayed over in the cabins. It was comfortable and clean. The staffs' confidence and professionalism kept me calm. The venue is gorgeous and several people commented it felt so comfortable, felt like "home". The kids had so much fun and are still talking about it. We had s'mores at night and pastry and coffee in the morning in the pavilion. We planned to go to the beach on the way out but the weather had other ideas. We are blessed to have these memories. LOVED IT!!! The price is outstanding for what you get. Highly recommended.

    Rustic charm

    The administrative assistant Lan has been super responsive and helpful with all of our questions (and we've had a lot!). She gave us a tour and explained the wedding package to us. The venue is beautiful and exactly our style. We're renting the cabins as well and can't wait to have all of our friends and family campout with is!
