From the calendar
Activities at YMCA Trout Lodge are exceptional and fun for the whole family. Visit the Triangle Y Ranch to experience horseback riding, pony rides, hayrides, barn dances, cowboy campfires and hat shaping. A trip to the arts and crafts center will feed your creative side, including tie-dye, ceramics, jewelry-making, wood crafts and more. The adventure-based activities are adrenaline pumping — high ropes course, zip lines, climbing tower, swings, etc. The Trout Lodge waterfront has an amazing array of activities, including swimming, rope swing, lake slide, Zorb ball, water trampoline, banana boat, canoes, sailboats, jon boats and pontoon tours, to name just a few. Even younger children will have a blast with activities designed just for them, including kite making, balloon animals, dart art, mini-golf, face painting and the awesome nature center where kids can visit animals that crawl, creep, hop, slither and meander. These are but a taste of everything offered at YMCA Trout Lodge!
From oversized guest rooms and two-story loft rooms in Trout Lodge, to two-bedroom private cabins along the lake or in the woods, cozy accommodations will fit your family's lifestyle. All lodge rooms and many of the private cabins offer scenic views of Sunnen Lake. Each family cabin has a large living room, stone fireplace and screened-in porch. To ensure a relaxing, worry-free visit, Trout Lodge rooms and cabins do not have phones or TVs. You can spend quality vacation time with your family or group, and your only "distraction" is the great outdoors!
