Panorama Point Pricing
Note: Full amount is due at the time of reservation.
For pricing information, see the Fees page.
Times: Reservation entitles you to two hours at Panorama Point. Events must be
scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Please be prepared to select
your desired time slot at the time of reservation. Due to rapidly
changing weather conditions in the mountains, morning and early
afternoon ceremonies are recommended. Please note, we prefer to schedule
only one event per day, but two events are possible. Due to the high volume of traffic during Fall colors, no weddings will be allowed Saturdays and Sundays the last two weekends of September, and the first weekend of October. Reserving
this site ensures that yours will be the only event, but does not
restrict other park visitors from using the facility. We cannot
guarantee exclusive use of the facility. View photos of the Panorama Point Special Event Site.
Facilities: Deck has some bench seating, vault toilets, six picnic tables and universal accessibility. Grills and fires are not permitted at this site.
Parking: Up to 15 vehicles, $7 daily pass required on each vehicle. A nominated individual from your party is required to check-in at the Visitor Center before the event begins to pre-purchase all vehicle passes for your group.
Scheduling: To reserve please call (303) 582-3707. The earliest that bookings can be made is exactly 6 months in advance of the day.
Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. The first
call that is received 6 months in advance will get the reservation. You
may call before the Visitor Center opens and leave a message. If the 6
months in advance happens to fall on a weekend day, please call and
leave a message. The staff member that handles reservations is off
on the weekends, so a decision will not be made until the following
Monday morning. You will receive a call back on Monday letting you know
if you got the reservation or not. Payment in full is required to
reserve any of our group facilities at Golden Gate.
Dressing Room: The Columbine Room can be used as a dressing room, storage area, and meeting point for the wedding party. Located at the Visitor Center, this is a convenient location to prepare for your big day - $110.00 reservation fee allows you access from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Please Note: Alcohol is not permitted in the Columbine Room.
Reception Options: Consider the Red Barn Group Picnic Area for your reception. A few miles drive from Panorama Point, this historic barn has been converted into a rustic outdoor picnic area with grills, fire pits, electricity, and picnic tables. Red Barn can accommodate up to 150 guests.
