Dining & catering - Camp Zeke

Fresh, nutritious ingredients

We don’t like processed foods, preservatives, and ingredients we can’t pronounce. Because of that, our chefs painstakingly make each day’s meals from scratch using only the freshest, most nutritious ingredients. The result is delicious food that wows our guests.

We enthusiastically accommodate all allergies and special food needs, and we specialize in creating meals for guests who are gluten free, vegan, or have allergies.

Want to do your own cooking?

We have a dedicated commercial kitchen just for our rental groups! If you’d prefer to handle your own food needs, just be in touch with us and we’ll be glad to accommodate.

Our kitchen is nut and sesame free. We also accommodate other allergies and special food needs. Do you need gluten free meals? No worries. Just be in touch and we’ll put together a menu to meet your needs. 

We specialize in meat-free, dairy-free, and egg-free options. Our chefs love fresh produce and plant-based foods, so meals are always filled with vibrant, colorful and nutritious fruit and vegetable dishes, often featuring lentils, beans, whole grains, tofu, and so much more. Our vegetarian and vegan groups love the food options. We’ll make a menu just for you.

Regardless of your event or goals, we’ll work with you to make the perfect menu for your program. Whether you want a full scale wedding menu or a laid back buffet, our talented culinary team will wow your guests with fresh, bright flavors and gourmet meals. Just be in touch and we’ll start planning!

Our Dining Facilities

Our cuisine is complemented perfectly by the beautiful setting. Our dining room has two fireplaces and large, picturesque windows that overlook the rolling green lawns and the pure, spring-fed waters of Hickory Lake.
