Forest Lake Camp allows you to create a one-stop shop for your entire wedding celebration. This immersive atmosphere guarantees a serene and picturesque setting for your ceremony and reception. Begin your day by preparing one of the well-appointed get-ready rooms, spacious enough to host you and your chosen wedding entourage. You have a number of ceremony sites to choose from, depending on your taste. You can exchange your vows by the lakefront, against a backdrop of glimmering water, or around the campfire for extra sparkle. Following your vow exchange, you can explore the grounds with your photographer, finding plenty of photo-ready backgrounds at your disposal. Your reception can take place in the camp's Mess Hall, an authentic rustic structure that will bring joyful memories of summer camp flooding back. This dining space can be reworked with a glamorous twist, owing to its elegant overhead chandeliers and rich wooden interior which is totally versatile for decorating. Space can be cleared in the hall to accommodate your dance floor and after-dinner entertainment. When the festivities are finished, you and your guests can retire to the on-site accommodations in the cabins. These facilities have been updated to ensure that you and your guests have a comfortable overnight stay, marking a peaceful end to your perfect day.
Forest Lake Camp offers a number of wonderful services as part of their wedding packages. These include on-site catering from the talented culinary team that works out of the Mess Hall. They can help you to design a custom menu to suit your event. The events staff can also recommend other outside vendors, such as DJS or other entertainment, and add activities like archery, skeet-shooting, and more to your wedding experience package. Event rentals like tables, chairs, flatware, glassware, lighting, and more are readily available for use. This location offers ample parking for the convenience of you and your guests.

Absolutely perfect camp wedding weekend.
Forest Lake Camp was a top notch camping wedding experience! The grounds are lush and beautiful, the cabins were Scandinavian clean and bright, the activities (rock climbing, archery, lake activities etc) fun, the staff friendly and helpful, and the on-site catering was delicious! They run an efficient ship here considering the wedding had ~200 guests with over 100 staying on site in cabins. They were incredible collaborators with me and the vendors (bartending, photography, band, and cake/ice/alcohol deliveries), making for a beautiful and memorable wedding weekend. If subsidizing the lodging, meals, and or reception, they work with you to check guests in and collect payment which is a huge help.
Carlos Perez, the manager on site, was professional and personable. He was responsive and quick with our million questions and favors. I seriously can not compliment him enough. He is a class act! He and staff also had lovely touches as bringing up hors d'oeuvres and champagne to the bride and groom post ceremony at the STUNNING ceremony site (overlooks the valley and lake), driving the photographer around the camp to show the best photo spots, coffee bar for the DIY family setting up the reception, and a commemorative wedding plaque that goes up in their Mess hall and one to go home with the bride and groom.
The Mess Hall and patio where the meals and reception were held is absolutely gorgeous. Huge wheel candle lightbulb chandeliers, fireplaces, lots of natural light, warm wood paneling, farm tables created a beautiful foundation for creating a gorgeous reception! We ate all meals here, all catered onsite and delicious and flipped the space into a lovely reception with eucalyptus runners and glass candlelit tables.
As a planner, it was incredibly easy to pull off a wedding here with perfect collaboration and support from Carlos and team. As a guest, it was a delight exploring the camp, taking in the sights, and eating the delicious food!
Thank you Carlos and staff for a memorable weekend! Bride and Groom loved every moment of it and have been loving hearing their guests say the same!
