About Rock Island Lake Club

Located in Sparta, New Jersey, Rock Island Lake Club is a rustic-chic wedding venue. Since 2014, this venue has welcomed couples and their guests to its lakeside location to celebrate their momentous occasion. The estate is conveniently situated in Northern New Jersey, about an hour outside of New York City, making it easily accessible for out-of-town guests. The staff is friendly, helpful, and dedicated to ensuring clients have a truly memorable and dazzling experience. The manor and grounds are an excellent spot for soon-to-be-newlyweds looking for a lush and secluded venue that feels like home away from home.

Facilities and Capacity
A sprawling lakeside property, Rock Island Lake Club accommodates a maximum of 200 guests. The large and impressive house has two get-ready suites where the wedding party can prepare together for the big day. The Balcony Suite overlooks the lake and is outfitted with a stunning chandelier and soft fabric touches. The Lakeside Lounge is equipped with sleek leather couches and a vintage popcorn maker with easy access to the bar. Ceremonies are held by the lake, a breathtaking setting where the serene waters and lush vegetation make for a spectacular backdrop. Intimate exchanges of vows can even be held on the dock, which is also ideal for photographs or the first look. Receptions are hosted in the space’s elegant ballroom with a dance floor, intimate cocktail lounge, or outdoor water-facing pavilion.

Services Offered
Rock Island Lake Club offers an array of comprehensive services and amenities such as tables and chairs, table numbers and cardholders, and an easel. A day-of coordinator and event planner, linens in 18 colors, a photo booth, and lawn games are also available. The culinary team will happily customize a menu that is uniquely designed for each couple and which accommodates all dietary restrictions. Extensive catering options include passed hors d’oeuvres like Cuban sliders, bacon-wrapped scallops, latkes and applesauce, and many more. Couples can also choose plated entrees, food stations with cheesy mac bars and Hawaiian luaus, or butcher blocks of wild hog and Korean steak. Alcohol packages include a red and white wine bottle at each table, a champagne toast, and 30 beers on tap.

    Simply Perfect

    Rock Island is a gorgeous venue and the staff is beyond amazing. Even after having to postpone our wedding, Heather at Rock Island, made us feel so at ease during a time where we were panicking. Truly a welcoming and professional place to work with!!

    A Beautiful Wedding

    Rock Island was one of the first venues that we visited while we started the planning process of our wedding. We fell in love with it immediately. Between the gorgeous reception and cocktail space and the outside area where the ceremony would take place we were amazed. We signed our contract and was ready to start planning. Unfortunately COVID did force us to change our date and Rock Island was accommodating. When our date finally arrived, the staff truly made the day so special even midst a pandemic. I didn't have a care in the world that day because I trusted the staff and they knew how to handle everything. All of our guests felt safe with the precautions in place. The food was exceptional also. Overall I am so happy we kept with having our "big" wedding and thank you to the Rock Island staff for making our day so special!
