With our top-notch resort amenities and suite-style guest rooms, your attendees will be begging you to bring them to the best resort on the lake. Now is the perfect time to plan your next meeting at the Lake.
The Space to Fit Your Needs
Flexible Meeting Space
Our resort complex features over 19,000 feet of flexible meeting space. That means there are a variety of ways you can utilize the meeting space. Whether you’d like to plan a two-day corporate retreat for your top fifteen salespeople or a weeklong conference with meals, activities, and classes culminating in an awards ceremony and plated dinner for 200, we can turn your vision into reality. The Sales and Banquet Team at Camden will help you plan your event of any size from the first spark to final realization.
From Small to Large
We have several meeting rooms of varying sizes and styles to choose from and your specially-assigned Convention Services Manager will guide you in choosing the right room or rooms for your event by group theme, activities, and size. For example, the Theatre Room, with its stadium-style seating and a large projected screen is perfect not only for a Movie Night event but for classes and lectures where you can utilize the large screen for demonstration purposes.
On the first floor of the resort is the lake view Grand Ballroom which can be converted into three separate meeting rooms when needed. The Lakeside Room has large garage doors that can be opened up to the lakeside boardwalk for an open-air feel. If you’re looking for a smaller room to have a team breakout or a board meeting, the Camden Conference Room provides nicely, whereas the Harbor Ballroom, with its bars and dance floor, is the ultimate setting for an evening reception.
Multiple Dining Options
After you’ve chosen the right meeting space for your event, your Convention Services Manager will assist in planning out your group’s meals and special activities. You’ll be able to create a fully satisfying event with our catering menu. From breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, and breaks, plated or buffet, you are sure to find a winning combination of meals and snacks for any size group. Have a specific theme in mind? Our culinary team is happy to create a custom menu that works within your group size and budget.
Parties & Receptions
If you’re planning an event or conference that involves more than food, let us help you plan a bar into your party or reception. You can choose from different options such as whether it will be a hosted bar or a cash bar. We can set up bars in any of the meeting rooms as well as on the boardwalk, where your guests can marvel at the beauty of the lake and at your superior planning skills.
Camden on the Lake is home to H. Toad’s Bar & Grill, a year-round restaurant featuring casual upscale American fare. H. Toad’s hosts a well-rounded menu of soup and salads, shareable appetizers, tasty burgers and sandwiches, and creative entrees of pasta, steak, and fish – including gluten-free options. You can’t forget about dessert or drinks! H. Toad’s bar is open daily kicking up area-favorite frozen blended drinks as well as beer, wine, and classic cocktails.
In addition to H. Toad’s, the resort is home to multiple seasonally operated food and beverage stations such as Toad Pizza. Adjacent to the pool, Toad Pizza serves up hot and fresh pizza by the pie or slice and also offers salads, sandwiches, and other grab-and-go treats like yogurt parfaits.
During busy Spring and Summer weekends, you can often find a breakfast buffet to rival any complete with a Bloody Mary Bar and Bottomless Mimosas.
Party on the Boardwalk
FREE Live Entertainment
Every Friday and Saturday night during the busy season the boardwalk is transformed into an open-air, lake-view concert venue. This year it begins on May 15th and 16th with Five Turn Knot performing on the Horny Toad Stage. All of our live entertainment is FREE to attend for anyone – public or hotel guests – and that includes your conference attendees! Look ahead and plan your meeting around that evening’s entertainment.
The Horny Toad Boardwalk is always hoppin’ during the Summer months, especially on weekends. Meeting-goers can also enjoy the two hot tubs, swim-up bar, and lakeside lounge furniture. You’ll want to plan in some downtime for your attendees to cut loose by the pool.
Some weekends even feature a special party or a live DJ by the pool and games along the boardwalk. Like and follow our Facebook page for event info ahead of time.
Group Outings & Activities
Fun On and Off the Water
One perk of being a lakefront resort is easy access to lake activities and there are several ways to enjoy the water. Plan an evening lake cruise for your guests with hors d’oeuvres and drinks or simply give them the option to rent boats (with or without captains) and personal watercraft directly from our boardwalk. If you want to get off the water for a while, plan a golf outing or a spa day. Whatever you choose, we can help guide you through the process of planning the ultimate outing for your group.
