Why Trout Lodge?
Families who've held reunions at Trout Lodge can tell you why Trout Lodge is unbeatable choice for your reunion. Here's what they have to say:
TROUT LODGE IS FAMILY-ORIENTED
It was a great way to enjoy multiple recreation opportunities and focus on the people you’re with.
-Mott & Tina
This was a great overall experience – Nice family atmosphere. Meeting facilities were great for our purposes. Common areas offered lots of variety for entertainment and socializing. I felt safe – didn’t have to worry about my belongings.
THE FOOD IS GOOD!
The Food was excellent our entire stay! Coffee was great-tasting, too!
We had a tremendous time. Not one complaint from anyone! There were so many varied and fun activities for all ages to enjoy, and the cafeteria did a fine job of serving good food.
Everything was set up perfect and the food was great! I look forward to contacting you again when we hold our board meeting in Washington County.
TROUT LODGE IS CONVENIENT
It is a wonderful weekend getaway – close to St. Louis, but far enough away to really have fun!
-Charles & Susan
It seems impossible that a week has passed since we left Trout Lodge, and what a memorable week it was for the family. Everyone felt the location was perfect and the activities plentiful.
TROUT LODGE ACTIVITIES ARE FANTASTIC
Everyone was helpful and very cordially answered questions about bike riding, archery and the rifle range. We hadn’t participated in these activities since high school days. It was a fun time.
I’d recommend Trout Lodge for everything! The craft center has so many high-quality crafts. The archery, rock-climbing and zip lines are great. The boat rides are well done. We enjoyed the rocket-building and launch. All the activities are great. The food is great. The rooms are nice. All a great value. The YMCA Core Values are important and the staff is friendly.
Our city-bred grandchildren loved the lake swimming – no chlorine to burn their eyes! The whole family enjoyed other activities that were available, and we felt that the week ended too soon.
TROUT LODGE STAFF ARE FRIENDLY AND GENUINE
The staff was so friendly and courteous – smiling and pleasant no matter what age. A thoroughly enjoyable visit!!! -The Dalziels Family The “spirit” of the personnel was definitely positive, helpful and giving.
-Dotty & Chuck
