Hours of Operation

Our facility is open to the public during our events.  The individual event hours vary and are listed on the page for that activity.

Private Rental

As our campus has developed so have the requests for private use of our facility. Currently this has included company picnics, weddings, high school reunions, family reunions and organization meetings. Contact us to find out more about holding a private event at Fort New Salem. We currently offer no on site catering but can make arrangements with area vendors. Private rental requests are subject to facility availability.
