Have your ceremony and reception at one location. Adjacent to Starved Rock State Park, we are able to work with brides and grooms to give them their special day they have envisioned.

Catering is all freshly done in house by our food & beverage team. Customization for the menu is certainly welcome- we'd prefer you serve exactly what you'd like that day! We provide white linens/skirting, china, glassware & silver, standard ballroom style chairs, dancefloor and staging as part of the ballroom rental. Our Grand Ballroom accommodates up to 300 guests comfortably (350 maximum) with a dancefloor, and works great for either a plated or buffet style dinner.

Typically ballroom rental is $750 Saturday evenings with a $2500 food & beverage minimum (sales tax/service additional). In booking your reception with us, you'll also receive a complimentary Whirlpool Suite the night of the reception! Additional fees to be aware of are our $100 bartender fee (1 per 100 guests required, additional upon request) and 75cents per person cake cutting fee. Sales tax is 6.5% and service is 20%.

In addition to reception space, we also have beautiful outdoor and indoor ceremony space. When booking your reception with us, you would receive your ceremony space complimentary!

Our goal is to work with you throughout the process and offer a full-service experience in coordinating your vendors the day of and details so that you may relax and truly enjoy your day! We offer a complimentary Grand Tasting Event for our contracted brides & grooms each year as part of your planning.

We provide a group rate for your guests. They would call in to our reservations team and make their reservations at their own time. These rates would expire 30 days from the arrival date. Guests would still be able to make reservations but at the standard rate. We encourage guests to book early!

All of our rates include unlimited ride wristbands for our indoor amusement and water park! Our backdrop is reminiscent of our neighbors: Starved Rock & Matthiessen State Parks - Canyon Cliff & Creek just behind our Main Lodge and is home to our outdoor pavilion. Great for photo opportunities! Our property features additional amenities such as mini golf, laser tag, ropes course, family movie night, and concessions along with a full-service restaurant & bar located in our amusement park (cost varies).

Should you decide to move forward in planning with us, we'll put together a contract with the rates/block information as well as the rental for banquet space. A deposit (in the amount of the ballroom rental) will be due with the contract to confirm along with a credit card on file. Payments would be scheduled a few months ahead of the wedding up to the day your final counts are due- we'll work together to determine what works best for you.

For more information please contact our wedding coordinator Kim Robinson at Let her know you saw our information on this forum! Talk to you soon!
