Group Events at Kit Carson Lodge

At Kit Carson Lodge, we believe in providing you with an unforgettable experience. That's why we've created traditions at Kit Carson Lodge, such as the nightly campfire. We know that the beauty of the Silver Lake area attracts artists and inspires the artistic side of our visitors; develop your skills in one of our artist workshops where you'll learn from the best. These are just a few of the things you can experience here at our Silver Lake Resort. Look down the list and find something that appeals to you. We just know you'll make a unique memory here in the scenic Sierra.

People talking around a campfire


Each night a campfire is built in front of the lodge. Come by the front desk and check out the campfire basket with marshmallows and matches.

The first person to arrive lights the pre-set fire and the last person douses it with the nearby hose. It’s a great way to meet other guests and share stories and a s’more or two.

Wine Tasting

We have invited wineries from El Dorado, Amador and other counties to host a wine tasting Tuesday nights from 5 to 7 p.m. in the lodge.

Take advantage of this free sampling of wines and hors d'oeuvres from this wonderful area of vineyards. Speak to the vintner to learn about the wines.

Love one of our wines? We have special pricing for the event! 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be holding wine tasting events this season.
