Hosting an event in a state park can provide the most breath-taking backdrop for your momentous event. At the same time, Florida State Parks has a specific mission of conservation, restoration, and recreation. Lake Louisa is thrilled to offer event services in addition to its primary mission. In order to ensure both the park mission, and the importance of an event such as a wedding are equally accomplished, events in the park are subject to a specific set of requirements. Your location fees include necessary permits, insurance, coordination with state park officials, oversight of event details to ensure compliance with state park rules and statutes, one secondary site visit for planning purposes, and preparation of your designated area(s) from public-use/standard day-use space to event space.
Your location fees do not include state park admission for your guests. You may, however, opt to include these admission fees in your booking agreement for the ease and courtesy of your guests.
Event equipment such as tables, chairs, linens, tents, lighting, carriage rides, etc. are required to be contracted, for an additional fee, directly through P3 Lake Louisa. For vendors such as florists, bakeries, DJs, and caterers, we will provide a list of preferred vendors but you are more than welcome to use your own vendors.
