If you want everyone up and mingling I think that food stations and/or a buffet would do the trick. It’s nice to be at a wedding where everyone can sit down. I’ve been to receptions where there wasn’t enough seating for everyone and I never stayed long. Guests want to feel like guests. They want to be remembered and noticed enough to have a seat provided for them. Even if some of your guests walk around alot, they need a home base where they can leave their things and rest when they want. Since you’re going for informal and fun and will be at a state park-maybe your reception could be a large picnic. You can have pretty white cloths that would be like tables except for guests would sit on them and eat on them. Each cloth could have a basket in the center that’s filled with food.

We are doing something similar.  We will still have enough seats for everyone though.  We will have a combination of traditional round tables as well as tall cocktail tables (without seats) so people can stand and eat or put drinks down around the dance floor- kind of like a club.

Having a coat rack will also prevent some people from “claiming” a seat for the whole night with their jackets (though mostly men I suspect due to purses etc if they didnt leave them in the car)
