Is there enough parking onsite for my guests?
Yes, we have parking available up top (which we like to reserve for elderly guests, handicapped guests, and event/cabin renters). There is also plenty of parking space available on our lower grounds for large events. A concrete sidewalk leads guests up to the venue from the lower parking area. For wedding events, we allow you to rent golf carts to transport guests, if you so choose.
Are there any permanent campsites available?
Probably not. Our private campground is usually full, and campsites do not become available very often. Contact us if you’d like to be put on our waitlist.
When booking for a weekend wedding, what is the rental time?
When you book your weekend wedding with us, the rental time is from Friday at 10am until Sunday at 9am. If you don’t have everything cleaned up and removed by 9am, you will be charged $100 per hour for the delay. Check-out time for room and cabin rental is 11am.
What is the capacity of the Event Center?
The event center’s capacity is 250 people maximum. Tent rental is always an option for those who have larger weddings. We do not provide tents or chair/table rental for outside; those will need to be obtained from an outside vendor. *Please note that our rental contract does include the use of tables and chairs for the event center.
Do I have to use a certain caterer?
No, you may hire the caterer of your choice, as long as they are licensed.
Can I bring my own liquor?
If you are planning a cash bar event, you must provide a licensed bartender. If you are providing your guests with free alcohol, then you can have whomever you choose to bartend. Serving guests under 21 is NOT allowed.
What additional costs are there after the rental fees are paid?
There is a $600 damage deposit, which will be returned unless excessive damage occurs, or excessive clean up by Winnebago Springs is required.

No pets are permitted in any of the buildings, cabins, or event center and event center area. Pets in the campground area must be on a leash at all times. Licensees are responsible for their pets and must clean up after them. An extra $150 per night cleaning fee will be charged if a pet was brought to the facility.
