Thank you for your interest in using the facilities at the Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant. The Desert Outdoor Center is nestled in the hills of the Sonoran Desert overlooking the waters of Lake Pleasant, one of the most beautiful locations in the Valley of the Sun. The center is a beautiful and unique facility…the “perfect” location for your wedding reception. You and your guests are sure to experience a truly memorable day.

The center provides many resources for your wedding day. To enter the facility, all guests will pass through a guarded gateway to ensure that no uninvited persons will attend your event. As your guests arrive or during cocktail hour, they can wander the exhibit hall to see many native desert animals, which is a favorite of both child and adult alike. Large, private dressing areas are provided for the entire bridal party to get ready for the special day.

Exchange your vows during a sunset ceremony at the terraced amphitheater overlooking scenic Lake Pleasant. The lake, mountains and desert provide a picturesque backdrop for wedding photos you will treasure for a lifetime. The spacious multipurpose room is an ideal reception location adaptable to your special bridal style and the large commercial kitchen is ideal for your caterer’s use.

We can “pencil you in” on any available date, with no cost or obligation, for 30 days. The reservation office is open Monday thru Friday 8am-5pm. If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Natalie at (602) 372-7470 ext. 209 or via email.
