More Than Your Venue

Nestled in the 33,000 acres of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Happy Days Lodge and Hines Hill Campus provide an idyllic backdrop for your most special day. Surrounded by rolling meadows and woodland vistas, our historic facilities present an ideal setting for your special moments to unfold.

By booking one of the Conservancy’s venues, your wedding will help support trails, volunteers, and outdoor education in Cuyahoga Valley National Park. After your event, you can come to the park and beam with pride when you see volunteers planting trees, or youth experiencing the wonders of nature at the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center.  You will be part of the story of a generation committed to preserving Cuyahoga Valley National Park – for all time, for all people.
