Welcome to

Big Oak Meadows

Our Story

We are the Custer family and we invite you on this journey of making Big Oak Meadows a place that you can build lasting memories with your family and friends. With both of us growing up on farms, we have a deep love for God’s creation, and know the value of growing together through hard work and dedication. We were both involved in camping ministry which is where we began our journey of life together. Our vision is to build community by having a Christ-centered place for families and the community to gather together in a unique and welcoming environment. This includes retreats, parties, weddings, and other special events and celebrations.

We invite you to come see and experience Big Oak Meadows with us!

Nate, a former USMC veteran, handles all things maintenance for the venue and in his free time can be found on a tractor, in the woods, or next to his grill.

Together, they have a shared love for Gods creation, taking on new projects, and building community.



Gina is a life-long friend of the owners and began working alongside them when they broke ground at Big Oak Meadows in 2015. Gina loves all aspects of weddings and finds beauty in the details.
