About

Glacier Hills County Park is a scenic wedding destination located a few miles away from the historic Holy Hill Church, which is nestled within the Kettle Moraine State Forest in Southeastern Wisconsin. The property consists of over 160 acres of land and a noteworthy view of Friess Lake. This venue is ideal for couples who wish to include nature on their wedding day! The views within the Park offer endless opportunities for stunning wedding photos, as well as beautiful ceremonies, receptions and weekend wedding events.

The Hall features a 4,000-square-foot room that can accommodate up to 200 people. The space directly outside is the perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour or reception. Nearby, the historic Glacier Hills Chapel is ideal for a romantic indoor ceremony. This space can accommodate up to 160 people. We also offer 4 cozy cabins and a charming guest house available within the property if you'd like to make your wedding a weekend event!

History

The Glacier Hills Hall and the chapel were constructed in the 1920s.

This space became a Washington County Park in 1976 and the building was renovated in 2017.

    Gorgeous Wedding Venue!

    We are 100% satisfied with our experience having our wedding at Glacier Hills County Park! Krystal was so helpful and responsive throughout the last year during the planning process. Our wedding day couldn’t have been more gorgeous in this setting! All of your amenities are in one spot, making it so easy on your guests. Our ceremony was on the sled hill (with chapel as backup if weather didn’t cooperate), cocktail hour on outdoor patio, and reception in the hall. Our bridal party stayed in the cabins by Friess Lake, which were clean and super cozy! The venue made our special day absolutely magical.

    Wonderful Venue

    Glacier Hills County Park was the perfect place for our wedding. I first saw it when I attended a wedding there, and I had my heart set on it ever since. The staff are friendly and accommodating, and location is beautiful. I appreciated the flexibility to bring in our own food and drinks. We had a plumbing issue during our event, and the staff was really responsive and resolved the issue quickly. It was the perfect amount of space for about 175 people (including wedding party and vendors) and the supplied tables and chairs worked great. It was nice to have the venue for the weekend so that we could set up the day before and take down the day after. Glacier Hills was an incredible venue that made our day so special.

    Glacier Hills County Park's reply:

    Julia,

    First off, thank you for choosing to have your wedding at Glacier Hills! We truly appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and we are so happy to hear everything went well, despite the plumbing issue. We hope to see you in the park again soon. Cheers!

    The most beautiful venue!

    If you are looking for a rustic/industrial, naturistic venue, this place is perfect. It is rustic on the outside but the hall has a beautiful rustic industrial feel. The chapel is definitely historical and very old but that is why I loved it so very much! Krystal, the parks business coordinator, was amazing at communicating with us! At the time there were not many pictures online of the inside of this venue so she let us into the venue multiple times so we could get measurements and pictures! The venue is very affordable. We rented it out for the entire weekend and they even let us in earlier. The capacity is 200. In addition, this is a venue that is extremely flexible! They allow you to bring in whatever vendors you would like. We really got to choose and build our entire day up from scratch. They do not supply staffing, but we were able to do everything ourselves with the help of our other vendors. We did not have a coordinator and the day went so smoothly!! Ourselves, family, and friends did not have to lift a finger!

    Glacier Hills County Park's reply:

    Hi Taylor! Thank you so much for the nice review. We really appreciate your support of the parks. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you.

    P.S. We LOVE the picture you shared of the chapel. Please send us more (when/if you have time). We're dying to see what you did with the spaces!

    Congrats again and best wishes!
