A rustic setting, but TOP boasts some of the most beautiful views around! Most couples choose the meadow for their wedding site and often include a night of camping at the nearby campsites. We also offer an enclosed pavilion structure (heated, with electricity and flush toilets) for indoor celebrations.

We had such an incredible wedding weekend at Top of the Pines – it makes me want to plan a party there every year! Thank you for your help in making our weekend a success. The rain held out (mostly!) and it was perfect! Thanks for working with such an incredible organization in a special place! I was originally nervous about dealing with all the logistics related to planning a wedding at TOP; however, when I first spoke to you, you made me feel at ease and that it was possible! THANK YOU! – Michelle, 2019

All of our friends now want to book your campgrounds because of what a beautiful place you have. - Sierra, 2019
Having our wedding ceremony at TOP was beyond amazing. Everything was perfect! The camp hosts were very friendly, accommodating, and even helped some older family members safely navigate the path to the meadow. We honestly do not have anything but positive feedback! We will definitely recommend this venue to others in the future. We cannot wait to visit again. – Annette, 2018
