Wonderful Laid Back Wedding Venue

We are so glad we had our wedding at Camp Nokomis! The team is friendly, helpful, and laid back. They were flexible and open to all our ideas and plans for the space. There was tons of space for our very large tent, and for our guests to spend the weekend. The lake, firepits, and trees are gorgeous, and there is a ton of privacy as well. Our guests had a wonderful time, and we loved the venue immensely!

Everything we hoped for and more!

We absolutely LOVED everything about getting married at camp — from playing soccer baseball and having a bonfire after our rehearsal dinner to a group swim in the lake on the wedding morning we were so happy to spend the entire weekend relaxing at camp with friends and family. Zak and the whole team at camp made sure everything ran smoothly from the moment we got there (and in all the planning before hand) so that we didn’t need to stress about any coordinating day of details. They were super helpful with vendor recommendations (all of which were fabulous) and were so responsive and professional. The food made by the camp chef (for rehearsal, wedding, and brunch) was delicious, the ceremony location with the arbour under the large tree felt like a fairytale, and any ideas we had for decor or activities the camp helped us run with. We had the dinner and dancing in a large tent right next to the ceremony and everything was the perfect combination we’d wanted of rustic, elegant and fun. There really was nothing lacking and we’re hoping for another family wedding, anniversary or reunion there another time :)

Fantastic :)

Jay and his staff were such wonderful people to share our day with. Our wedding was the silly rustic party we had hoped for and the day went off without a hitch. Very laid back and flexible.

Highly recommend!

I hosted my engagement party at Camp Bellaleo June 8th 2024, highly recommend!!! The staff were phenomenal. Zak, Vicki, Alexa, and Phil are all super friendly and attentive. Phil is an amazing chef. The food was delicious and he accommodated dietary restrictions. There’s plenty of activities to do on site including campfires, volleyball, soccer baseball, a low ropes course, archery, basketball, canoeing/kayaking, and more. They kindly helped set up the campfire for us and even opened up the pool at 8:15am for a polar dip. There’s also so many locations for wedding/engagement photos! Thank you for the memorable weekend.

Great outdoor rustic wedding venue!

Camp Nokomis was the perfect outdoor wedding venue! They were very accommodating and flexible with how we wanted to set up and decorate for our special day. Zak, Alexa, Noah, and the rest of the team worked very hard to make the day go as smoothly as possible and Chef Phil made a meal that our guests couldn't stop talking about! Big thanks again for making our wedding so special!

It’s hard to put into words how fantastic you all were this weekend so I guess I just have to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the camp wedding dream come true! I managed to be calm and enjoy the whole thing because of you! Both leading up to the wedding and during the whole weekend. Your calm , helpful advice was bang on and you took care of details before I had even thought of them.



Thanks for making this whole experience a dream of happiness!!

Thank you Camp Nokomis!

We had the most beautiful, perfect day on September 4, 2022 getting married at Camp Nokomis. As a camp alumni, I could not imagine a more beautiful spot to celebrate one of our biggest life milestones! Zak, Alexa, Jay, Vicki, Noah, Phil, and the entire camp staff were incredible. They accommodated any request we had, and provided us with such a pleasant and pain-free experience when planning our wedding. Jay officiated the most beautiful ceremony that had everyone in tears, and it was so special getting to share the amazing camp site with all our beloved family and friends. We cannot thank you all enough for such a perfect day and weekend!

Started as wedding planning- Left feeling like family

I would 100% recommend Camp Nokomis for any event. My husband and I recently had our weekend long wedding here and the staff was phenomenal. From the first day we drove out over a year ago to the second we left the property they treated us like we we're family. Jay the father was our officiant, he nailed making our ceremony personable as well as funny but romantic. Zak and Noah who are brothers were the extra hands we needed all weekend, providing assistance not just to us but our guests. Phil the cook did an excellent job encasing are laid back menu options but bringing them up a notch,going as far as helping guests who dislike a singular ingredient.
The ammentinies while I didn't get to use all were endless. The buildings from craft hall, to bunks are kept up to date as in no damage. Weatherization and small touches like mini fridges and electricity pump up your camp experience.
Then to add to it they are some of kindest humanitarian and animal lovers you'll meet.
We were sad to have the weekend end because the only complaint you'll have at Camp Nokomis is your stay is too short.

Amazing wedding experience

Having our wedding at Camp Nokomis was the best decision we made for our wedding. The location is so beautiful, and it was the perfect weekend for our friends and family to relax and enjoy each other’s company. Zak was easy to communicate with and made sure everything went smoothly. Jay was a wonderful officiant and made the ceremony feel so special. The food was incredible - Phil made exactly what we wanted and our friends and family raved about it. Everything was perfect and better than we could have imagined!

The perfect day!

Having our wedding at camp Nokomis was like a fairytale, everything was perfect! The entire staff was so accommodating and kind, they made the entire experience feel almost effortless!

The layout of the camp is stunning and works perfectly for a wedding! We had the perfect weather at the beginning of June, and having the ceremony down by the water was picture perfect! The service the Jay did for us was magical and exactly what we wanted! He was kind and funny and did such a great job! The food was phenomenal, and we still have people taking about it almost 3 years later!!

I cannot say enough good things about camp Nokomis, it is the perfect venue for a wedding! I wish that I could relive this day a million times over because it was was so perfect!

I would HIGHLY recommend this venue!
