Wedding Packages

Our all-inclusive wedding weekends allow you to enjoy exclusive use of the Chalet and/or the camps at the Lair, depending on what your wedding looks like. Your ceremony at the Lair’s outdoor stage, and the reception at the Lair’s scenic Vista Lodge. Come explore all four properties and design your ideal wedding weekend.

We’ll work with you on your desired menus for the weekend—we can prepare a range of options from informal, finger-licking good BBQ lunches, to gourmet brunches, to lavish wedding dinners, and even after-party snacks. All menus can include options for dietary restrictions.

If you’ve been a Lair camper before, you know that we excel at organizing and leading activities such as hikes, kayaking, yoga classes, archery, arts and crafts, and children’s programs. We offer these programs at all our properties for wedding weekends as well—let our spirited staff help make your special weekend all it should be. We even arrange for childcare during your wedding ceremony.

For the services that we don’t provide, such as photography and flowers, we’ve proudly partnered with exceptional wedding planners, Gold Country Weddings, who are uniquely qualified to advise your party on local vendors and event planning.
