Established in 1967, Lake Pines began as a 20-site, family-operated campground in rural East Columbus, GA. An old barn served as the site's recreation center, hosting many covered dish dinners, parties, and square dances. Since that time, the owners, Connie and Kenny McCutchen, have poured their love of event planning and the great outdoors into the Lake Pines Event Center. Here, you will find a wonderful venue filled with stained glass windows, antiques, and rustic beauty that can’t be found anywhere else in the area. Lake Pines Event Center wants to help you bring your vision to life, so we offer the freedom of using your own vendors or ones we recommend. We’ll always remember that it’s your special day. Contact us for package information or to schedule a tour. The Barn is now a venue for wedding receptions and events. The Chapel - completed in 1998 - was built from salvaged materials found throughout Georgia. It is a beautiful setting for exchanging vows and hosting photography sessions. The Pavilion - an outdoor ceremony option - can accommodate larger celebrations. The Lillie House has a capacity of 45 (seated) and serves as a bridal suite where you and your party can prepare for the day. It can also be used for tea parties and showers, rehearsal dinners, small receptions, and other intimate gatherings.
