About Us

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.

  • The boathouse was everything I wanted for my wedding and more! The ladies there, especially Kristen and Danielle, were responsive, attentive, and so sweet! The space was beautiful! The new ballroom and ceremony space are out of this world gorgeous! The only thing that was a problem was the rowers on site. Now, I knew full well that they would be there...it is part of the contract you sign, however, the one coach was a total jerk and would not let us take photos on the dock (WHICH IS USED TO ADVERTISE THE BOATHOUSE AS A WEDDING VENUE). He was a total jerk about it and yelled at us very rudely. We also weren’t able to get pictures in front of the doors, as advertised, due to the rowers. So, definitely try to pick a month they aren’t in season. They also were running really close to the ceremony space which was annoying. Again, not the boathouses fault...but they really should have more of a plan in place for the rowers.
