Our company picnic for over 200 people was a very entertaining event. The food was great and the DJ entertainment package was terrific – we had great participation in all the events – lots of prizes – and fun for all ages. I would highly recommend Forest Lodge to anyone considering a group event. Fun – fun – fun!  Matt

We've had our company picnic here for the past 24 years. They have never disappointed us and have always had great food. The best thing is that Forest Lodge is constantly updating the menu as well as the events. This year they had a mini NASCAR oval track that drew a lot of attention.  Rie


If you are looking for the perfect spot to hold your Company Picnic and you have people driving from all over NJ, look no further! Forest Lodge was easy to get to and at most 1 hr away for our farthest attendees. Charlie, Charlie, and Sharon are so easy and pleasant to work with and they handled practically everything!

Aside from us making a few decisions, letting them know our preferences, and doing a few event-type things ourselves like hiring the band, etc. we really just had to show up and enjoy ourselves - a rarity for event planners! Everyone that came said it was one of the best company parties they had ever been to - it was 2 weeks ago and we are still getting Thank You emails! Their grove full of tall trees and cool(er) shade with lots of picnic tables was a very nice oasis for our guests. The food was excellent and plentiful, service was fast/friendly/polite, and there were never any long lines - You can tell this venue knows their business and runs it like a well-oiled machine. This is one of those instances where you look back on paying for a service and are happy to write the check because they far exceeded our expectations while making us look great and while making our lives easier. Whatever your circumstances and whatever the conditions are the day of your event I feel like they have solutions to handle it all with no drama and a pleasant attitude. Thank you Charlie, Charlie Jr., Sharon, and all of your staff that did their jobs with a smile during a blistering heat wave - You are all true professionals and awesome people.

Forest Lodge is at the top of my recommendation list for anyone looking to work with great people at a great place in a great location. :)

Forest Lodge,

Thank you so much for everything on Saturday!  You made the picnic run flawlessly with Stan's help of course. He was such sweetheart to work with. I just want to drop you a line and say that the boss was thrilled with everything.  He was also wondering if you could send over some pricing for the beautiful property that we saw where you were having your wedding.
