The choices for your special day at Roaring Camp are unique and magical. Treat your guests to an unforgettable experience on a steam train ride through the Redwoods to a towering, circular Cathedral Grove of Redwoods providing a majestic background for your ceremony, or choose to frame your vows in a park-like setting on an open expanse of green lawn surrounded by the shade of Majestic Oaks near your vintage schoolhouse bridal suite.
For your reception, our large barn doors slide open for your celebration inside Bret Harte Hall. Wrought iron chandeliers & twinkle lights line the expansive barn with 6,120 square feet of space that includes all your tables and chairs to accommodate receptions from 80 to 300 guests. We have ample room for dining, dancing and more outside on the adjacent lawn- perfect for games and mingling.
The Roaring Camp Catering package includes our staff to set and bus your tables, your basic table settings with many options for plate patterns, linen colors, etc. along with a water, iced tea & lemonade station plus coffee & tea after dinner. You bring the beer, wine and champagne only- no corkage fee. A rustic wagon wheel displays your desserts & cake and you can add on a fire barrel outside for s'mores. Licensed outside caterers and food trucks are allowed with a service fee per guest.

School House Lawn
An expanse of grass adjacent to an old-fashioned one-room schoolhouse offers the ideal setting for a garden wedding.
Bret Harte Hall
Roaring Camp's Bret Harte Hall, suitable for the wedding ceremony or reception, boasts 6120 square feet of unobstructed space, a full theatrical stage, and 32-foot-high ceilings. Designed for today's group events, Bret Harte Hall's multi-function space has adjustable lighting, an on-site preparation kitchen for caterers, and massive doors that open onto a covered reception area and adjacent lawn.
Cathedral Grove Site (includes train)
For a wedding venue that is truly unique and inspirational, couples exchange vows under the redwoods at Cathedral Grove atop Bear Mountain. This ring of ancient giants, referred to as a Fairy Circle, was formed as a result of three generations of redwood growth, coming together to create a perfect circle. The beauty and symbolism of the circle offers a cathedral-like setting for your special ceremony. Access to Cathedral Grove ceremonies requires train transportation to Bear Mountain and back for wedding party and guests.
Available indoor and outdoor reception areas include Bret Harte Hall and the outdoor main stage and barbecue area. Parties may engage an outside caterer or select Roaring Camp's delicious Chuckwagon Barbecue. Wedding parties using outside professional caterers are subject to a surcharge.
