Outdoor Weddings

Lake Cuyamaca has several scenic, natural sites suitable for small outdoor weddings. Our staff would be happy to show you different locations that may work for you, and we will do anything else we can to help you make this a memorable day.


One very important thing to remember - Lake Cuyamaca is in the mountains and weather extremes happen very quickly at just about any time of year. The morning of your wedding may be beautiful and by afternoon we could have 40 mph winds. Because of this, we do not recommend having your wedding here between the months of November and April. 

Our fee schedule is dependent on the level of use of our facilities

and staff but is geared to be reasonable. For example, if the wedding consists of a minister, the couple being wed and a handful of witnesses on a knoll overlooking the lake, we would charge $300. For more guests the basic rate would be our access fee of $10.00 per vehicle.

Another important consideration - since we are a public park, exclusive use is impossible. The background of your wedding photos could have a boat or angler in them. However, most people are very considerate and generally try not to intrude.

To reserve your wedding date, please call 760-484-6454.
