Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington, has opened a new 2,100-square-foot outdoor event space.

The Moonlight Pavilion features stained cedar ceilings, rich wood beams, and a rustic charcoal-grey met roof that accents the tall pin and Douglas fir trees around it. The pavilion includes five-star comforts in the outdoors such as built-in firepits and heat lamps to warm guests on cool nights, and an open-air grill designed for chef-led dining.

The pavilion is located at the center of the lodge’s Backyard at Skamania, which offers a range of outdoor activities, including The Gorge 9, a fun-for-all nine-hole short course; the Little Eagle 18, an 18-hole putting course; a disc golf course; axe throwing; and an aerial adventure park.

“We named the new venue ‘Moonlight Pavilion’ because it perfectly describes the bucolic beauty of this area of our resort,” said Kara Owen, general manager of Skamania Lodge. “Nothing beats sitting outside, looking at the Cascade Mountain Range through the trees on a moonlit night.”

The Moonlight Pavilion can be scaled up or down depending on the unique needs of the event. It accommodates up to 180 people.

“The recent rebound in travel has created a heightened appetite for in-person events,” said Owen. “We anticipate that this unique venue will provide the perfect setting.”

In addition to the new pavilion, Skamania Lodge will be adding three new treehouses to its current treehouse village due to high demand for the unique accommodations.
