Wild, Wild West Weeks
Friday, August 3, 2012 - Thursday, August 16, 2012
Round up the doggies and head to Trout Lodge for an exciting adventure. Test your cowpoke skills and learn how to lasso or try your hand at leather branding and prairie cooking. End your evenings with a barn dance or sittin' by the fire as Wrangler Willy fiddles up some tunes.
Join us down at the Ranch and learn how to line dance with our Wranglers.
Cops and Robbers
We’re taking the wild west onto the water! Sign up at the Country Store and meet at the boathouse for a shoot ‘em up adventure. Hop on pontoons with our water guns and see which team can out last the other. Wranglers beware: You are guaranteed to get wet in this wild west extravaganza!
High Noon Shoot-out
Head down to the Waterfront at high noon for a western-style watergun shoot-out. Are you the fastest draw?
Down at the Ranch
Take the little cowboys and cowgirls to the Ranch for Pony Rides ($4) and they get their very own cowboy hat.
Trail rides will also be available at scheduled times all week.
Learn about roping, branding, and cooking outdoors.

Fireworks (Due to dry weather and increased fire hazards, fireworks displays may be canceled.)
What a better way to end a day on Sunnen Lake than with a fabulous fireworks show? Watch from your room or meet us on the back deck of Trout Lodge as you watch in awe. Fireworks Cruises will be available for $1, but space is limited so please sign up at the country store.
