AMAZING VENUE! I am so thrilled to be a month and a half away from my wedding at this beautiful location. Nicole has been amazing and so helpful with all my questions and concerns. We even got to book the cabins for overnight camping for our friends. If you're looking for a rustic location but with top notch quality I would 100% recommend Camp Kiwanee.

I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else! This place is amazing, from the gorgeous background for the ceremony to the rustic feel of the lodge - everything was perfect. The staff is so helpful - specifically Nicole and Jim, who are both very accommodating and really great to work with! We also stayed overnight in the cabins, and the guests absolutely loved the idea! Heard from multiple people that it was the best wedding they had ever been to - and I have Camp Kiwanee to thank for that!

Camp Kiwanee is a beautiful place to have your wedding. I could not be more happy with the venue and how my wedding turned out. At this venue you are able to make your wedding into whatever you want, basically a DIY kind of way. You basically are paying just for the venue itself. The rest is up to you, which I thought was going to be the worst....but it really wasn't!!. They were very helpful with who to hire for caterers and which services were familiar with the venue. We used a caterer that was also a wedding planner which made the day of the wedding a piece of cake (Smoke and Pickles). All I had to do was show up! They provide a bartending service at Camp Kiwanee and they were wonderful and accommodating as well. You also have the choice to rent the campground for 24 hours. It is a camp ground and has cabins available to rent for a fee the night of your wedding. We did this and it was the best idea ever, made the night even more special and fun just to be able to spend more time with your guests (You pay so much for a wedding, why not spend 24 hours celebrating!). My wedding pictures came out amazing, with the lake, porch, barns and cabins I got the rustic pictures I have always dreamed of. I got so many complements about how fun and relaxed my wedding was, and that is was the best wedding some people have ever been to. I highly recommend this venue!!!!

Camp Kiwanee is a wonderful place to get married. We loved this relaxed rustic venue. We decided to have our ceremony and reception here. All the staff were so accommodating, easy going, and fun (especially Jim and Ally). We also reserved the south side cabins for the night, which our guest really enjoyed. The prices were very reasonable compared to other venues we looked at. If you're looking for a woodsy, rustic feel we highly recommend Camp Kiwanee! Our wedding was the best day/night!

We knew Camp Kiwanee was the perfect venue for our wedding as soon as we saw it. It was the perfect blend of rustic, beauty, and charm. The main lodge is exquisite, and anything but rustic! It overlooks the lake, providing an amazing backdrop for getting married on the porch. We had about 115 people seated inside for our reception dinner and dancing, and easily could have fit more. The caterer we used, Famolare's, did an amazing job with cocktail hour then delicious food. The bartending service (you have to go with them as part of the Camp Kiwanee contract if you want booze) was friendly, flexible, and professional. Nicole was so helpful with office and logistic questions, and Jim the caretaker was super helpful with more specific questions about the buildings and grounds, and he was so great the day of. We rented out the pavilion and cabins; most of our friends opted to stay in the cabins, and we had an amazing afterparty in the pavilion, followed by a bagel brunch the next morning. We provided school bus transportation back to a hotel for our guests who wanted a hotel option. It was an amazing day that fulfilled all out wedding dreams. It wouldn't have happened without Camp Kiwanee or the amazing staff there!

We LOVED having our wedding at Camp Kiwanee! The location is both rustic and gorgeous, we were able to have many of our family and friends stay over in the campgrounds for a rockin afterparty, and we loved how flexible the staff was. The only vendor they require you to use is their own alcohol supplier, so we were able to bring in all our own vendors. Many people have really low-key weddings at the camp, but we had a slightly more swanky affair with a live funk band on their built-in stage and stations of small plate cuisine. It perfectly matched our vision of a funky fairy-tale ball! Highly recommended!!!!!

One thing to note - they say the venue can accommodate 200, but the main room felt pretty full with about 130 people and it was standing-room-only in the library when we had our ceremony on the porch. If you actually have 200 people, it would probably feel very crowded.

Camp Kiwanee was a beautiful venue. We couldn't have asked for friendlier people to work with. Nicole was available via email as often as we needed to assist in our planning and answer any questions we had. Jim also was extremely helpful at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. They both were great and the venue itself speaks for itself. It was just beautiful. Thank you Camp Kiwanee (Nicole and Jim) for making our day perfect! E Shaw

We hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at the Pavilion in the South End camping area. We had a tent provided by A-Bee tents of Hanson for our over flow of guests, and Jason was great discussing where he felt would be the perfect place. Everyone we spoke with as the months flew by were overly accommodating. They made our set up so much easier by allowing us to store many of our things in the barn the night before. Our guests loved the laid back feeling of the wedding and that you weren't forced to be in any one spot. Whether it was boogieing on the dance floor, or having a group kazoo session by the bon-fire, it was perfect!

We had an amazing time at our wedding at Camp Kiwanee this weekend. If you want a fun, rustic, do-it-yourself wedding, it doesn't get any better than this. We had our ceremony on the large covered porch of the main lodge overlooking the lake. Everyone was telling us all night how much they loved the location. After the reception, the staff helped us build a bonfire and we hung out for hours. Many of our guests stayed overnight in the cabins, joined us for breakfast the next morning, relaxed on the beach and swam in the lake. I wholeheartedly recommend Camp Kiwanee!!
