We’re perfect for a meet-in-the-middle wedding for Madison, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Rochester, northern Iowa, and northwest Illinois areas. More locally, we’re central to Whitehall, Arcadia, La Crosse, Eau Claire, Osseo, Winona, and Black River—all with ample lodging.

For a $600 fee, Monarch Valley staff can set up and take down tables, chairs, and outdoor seating, with direction from you; and also clean the venue once your party leaves. Or, to keep costs down, you can choose to go DIY.
We have EIGHT permanent bathrooms. They’re amazing and clean.

We welcome tents and have five RV parking spaces for extra guest capacity. We have an RV electrical hook-up, but do not have water or allow waste disposal. Bathrooms in our nearby pavilion will be open to you at all times. $5 per tent, per night. To park an RV in 2020, we charge $25 per RV, per night. (RV parking will move to $50 per weekend in 2021).
All RVs and tent campers MUST SCHEDULE A CHECK-IN TIME with Monarch Valley in advance. Upon arrival, RVs and tent campers will make their payment and receive parking/camping assignments.
Catering, Alcohol, & Vendors
We do not offer in-house catering or supply alcohol—you are responsible for securing and supplying your own. We have few restrictions on catering, alcohol suppliers, or other vendors. You are free to hire any vendor that you desire.
Certain times of the year might better suit your goals. Generally: May is sunny, sometimes rainy and cool; June-September is green and floral; October is full on Fall, gets darker a little earlier, and may even see signs of winter. In considering any outdoor venue in Wisconsin, you should prepare for any weather in any month—that’s why we have ample indoor space.
We also operate a whitetail hunting business – Monarch Valley Whitetails – on the same property. We do not allow hunting or weapons on the property during weddings. Ask us about Fall-Winter hunting discounts for wedding couples!
