About Camden County Boathouse

The Camden County Boathouse is a banquet hall in a park in the Southern New Jersey area for couples’ weddings. This outdoorsy venue is perfect for a local or destination wedding on the water. Couples will find a wrap-around deck, yard space, and observation tower to be used on their big day at the Camden County Boathouse. This venue is located in Cooper River Park, roughly 15 minutes from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Facilities and Capacity
This venue is located right on the banks of the Cooper River, offering sparkling waterfront weddings on grassy shores or long docks. Couples can host their ceremony in the grassy yard of the venue, with a backdrop of lush mature trees and the sun glinting off the waters of the river. Guests can enjoy the celebration from folding white chairs, while a white wedding arbor perfectly frames couples under the boughs of the trees. From there, couples can traverse the property in search of the perfect photo locations. The docks stretching out into the water, the wrap-around deck, and the Boathouse Observation Tower all make stunning photo locations. The Boathouse itself is a stunning piece of architecture, with stone and exposed wood as the exterior, with white siding on the tower and grey shingles on the roof. Couples can use this in the background of many of their wedding shots. Inside, the venue seats up to 200 guests for a reception, with room for more if couples are hosting their cocktail reception or ceremony beyond the banquet hall’s doors. Two portable bars, a built-in dance floor, and two bridal suites make this space welcoming and functional.

Services Offered
Couples can celebrate any special wedding-related moment at the Camden County Boathouse. The venue welcomes couples for ceremonies and receptions, but also bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, or rehearsal dinners. They will find all-inclusive packages for their big day so that they don’t have to lift a finger. Or, couples can plan their own wedding with assistance from the event staff at the Boathouse. Not only do the staff members help with event planning, they also offer expertise when it comes to outside vendors and lighting and sound services. This team of wedding experts can create a custom wedding cake for the celebration, provide in-house catering, and assist with setup. Other services offered by this banquet hall include:

  • Bridal suite
  • Liability insurance
  • Parking
  • Preferred vendors only
  • Wireless Internet

Perfect location, wonderful staff

We had an amazing experience with this venue. The location is so convenient, not only since it is close to lots of major highways and right across the Ben Franklin Bridge from Philadelphia, but also ... Read more is convenient to many affordable hotels. The spaces inside and outside are incredible, and between the Cooper River Park immediately adjacent and the Philadelphia skyline in the distance, the views are breathtaking. We were able to hold our ceremony on-site, outside, however if it had been inside it would have been just as lovely given the newly renovated space inside. The staff were incredible, answered all of our questions thoroughly and promptly, and took away all of the stress of planning a wedding from a few states away. We will definitely recommend this space to all of our family and friends!
