Facility Rentals

Thank you for considering the Champaign County Forest Preserves for your event. Whether you're planning a wedding ceremony or reception, family reunion, business meeting or company picnic, we have a facility to accommodate you. We offer open-air shelters and enclosed buildings in beautiful settings.

Buildings and shelters are available to rent at four of the seven forest preserves.

The earliest a reservation may be made is up to one year in advance of the event date and should be made online. If you have questions you can reach staff at (217) 586-3360 or [email protected].

Alcohol is allowed with a facility rental. Renter must provide a signed Certificate of Insurance that shows proof of Host Liquor Liability coverage in the amount of $1 million and CCFPD must be named as an additional insured party.

The Forest Preserve District welcomes your interest in using our facilities for your wedding and/or reception. Before you make your final decision, however, there are a number of factors of which you should be aware. Please read our special information for wedding activities.

Make your reservation by clicking on one of the links below. The full rental fee must be paid at the time of the reservation.
