About

Galena Creek Regional Park is home to two beautiful and extremely popular indoor/outdoor wedding venues - The Galena Creek Fish Hatchery and the Camp WeChMe (prononced wee-ch-mee) Lodge.

The Galena Creek Fish Hatchery has a rustic, yet contemorary feel. The natural stone walls and original exteriror windows lend to the building's curb appeal, while the interior features a modern look and feel. Nestled in the Jeffrey pines along Galena Creek, the Fish Hatchery is an amazing and unique community building, which once served as an actual trout hatchery in it's early existence from 1931-1949. The exterior is surrounded on three sides brick patio pavers, and is well suited to accommodate smaller groups, but can easily handle the maximum capacity of 130 people. The building comes with ten 5' diameter round tables, 25 6'x30" rectangular folding tables and 130 black, cloth-backed folding chairs for your use (although the chairs are only for use indoors). There is a sizable kitchenette/serving space which is well equipped for most catererers or DIY'ers. The entire space is ADA accessible.

Do you have a larger group and need more space? Just up the road is the Camp WeChMe Lodge, which is well suited for groups of up to 150 people. The lodge features an amazing one acre of outdoor space, featuring a well manicured turf area, benches, a wood bench amphitheater, a fenced overlook, and a private picnic area wich charcoal grill and tables. The interior of the lodge features a large main reception space called the "Grand Room", an outdoor deck space, a full commerical kitchen, as well as twelve group "bunkrooms" and four separate restrooms on two floors. The entire upper floor of the building is ADA accessible. The Grand Room is nicely furnished with wood dining furniture to accommodate 80-100 people, with plenty of space to add more. The handsome stone fireplace and wildlife mounts add to the building's rustic lodge feel.

Both the Fish Hatchery and Camp WeChMe are reservable one calendar year in advance, but must be reserved more than 30 days in advance.

For those looking for a scenic, yet affordable outdoor option, Galena Creek Regional Park features three reservable outdoor group picnic areas - The Bearmat, the Manzanita, and the Jones Creek Group Picnic Areas. Each feature space for up to 100 people, permanently mounted picnic tables and grills, restroom facilities and plenty of parking. The Manzanita and Bearmat group picnic areas also feature amenities like horseshoe pits and volleyball courts for outdoor games and space for your ceremony. Just Bear in mind that the park is home to an abundance of wildlife, and there are restrictions on amplified sound, so the group picnic areas might not be ideal for everyone. For those searching for a unique and simple "pop-up" option, either of these group picnic areas might be your best bet, as they can be reserved 30 days to one year in advance.
