YMCA Trout Lodge is a year-round family/group resort and conference center located among 5200 beautifully wooded acres with a sparkling 360-acre lake. Our rates include lodging, meals and all free activities; kids 0-4 are always free. Come and play in the water during the summer with our boating, swimming and caving activities, and all year enjoy climbing, zipping, hiking, horseback riding, mini-golf, crafts, archery, riflery, face painting and so much more (40-100 depending upon time of year). We also have fun weekly themes - be a pirate, hunt for easter eggs, join in our western days, luaus, pumpkin jamboree, halloween, thanksgiving, pioneer christmas, ring in the new year family-style and so much more. Reconnect as you laugh and play, and experience a grand adventure not so far from home but far, far from ordinary.
