Spring Lake is a picturesque site situated at the headwaters of the San Marcos River, and there are several options for your special day. We have spaces available at the Headwaters Green, the Meadow, or on our Rooftop overlooking Spring Lake's crystal waters. As a special treat to your guests, you can even reserve our historic Glass Bottom Boats!
Spring Lake is an OUTDOOR venue with no cover. Clients are welcome to rent tents to accommodate their guests. There is one small conference room available, but seating and availability is very limited. Please keep this in mind when planning your date and time.
Spring Lake can be the perfect site for weddings, rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, bridal showers, photo shoots, and more. Give us a call to set up a personalized tour, or visit on your own any day of the week to take a look for yourself.

Spring Lake: The Wedding Venue of Our Dreams
We are so thrilled to have had our wedding at Spring Lake at The Meadows Center for Water & the Environment!!! It was the most beautiful venue imaginable. We had our ceremony on the beautiful lawn, looking out onto Spring Lake. Then, for cocktail hour, we rented glass-bottom boats and our guests took tours of the lake. We had our reception on the roof. What a unique and wonderful place for a wedding! No wonder it is the longest continuously inhabited site in North America! Miranda was helpful and flexible as we planned, making her staff available for our needs and letting us use her tables. The San Marcos River is such a special place and the Meadows Center is the perfect spot to enjoy it. We love the history (it used to be a resort with mermaid shows and a diving pig), the natural beauty, and couldn't think of a better place to get married! Thanks so much to Miranda and everyone else! We had the night of our lives!!!Sent on 05/19/2019

This was so simple and beautiful to have our wedding ceremony right over looking the river. The roof top was incredible fun and spacious. Miranda was also very patient and helpful throughout the planning process. However, the venue does not provide any itemsSent on 02/28/2017

We held our wedding ceremony and dinner at Spring Lake in San Marcos. As one of the longest continuously inhabited sites in all of North America, it wan an honor to add our celebration to the shores of the Sacred Springs that have flowed there for millions of years.Sent on 01/23/2018
The unmatched natural beauty of Spring Lake was the perfect back drop to our ceremony on the water's edge at Sycamore Point. We rented the pretty white chairs for seating down there. One thing I would note about that site is that the walk from our ceremony to the dinner on the roof of the Meadows Center was a bit long for our elderly guests. We decided to hire a pedi-cab for a couple hours to shuttle folks around the park before and after the ceremony. I highly recommend this, or a golf cart, if you plan your ceremony for Sycamore Point.
We rented out the glass-bottom boats for our guests, which made for a truly unique and memorable cocktail hour before dinner on the rooftop of the historic hotel (now the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment). They even let us use their tables and 50 chairs! (We did have to rent some extras for our large group). The staff was great and there was ample parking for our guests.
As Bobcat Alumni, river-rats, and stewards of the planet, my husband and I couldn't be more thrilled to have shared this natural treasure with all the people we love. Thank you Spring Lake for such a perfect experience!
