Experience Fall at Trout Lodge — Plan your family’s fall getaway today!

As the calendar flips to September and fall quickly approaches, now is the time to begin thinking about a fall getaway for your family to enjoy the magical experience of fall in the Ozarks.

Located only 90 minutes from St. Louis, YMCA Trout Lodge is the perfect location to unplug, reconnect, and recharge with your loved ones. We offer adventure, recreational and nature activities for all ages and our rates include lodging, three meals per day, and most activities. Plus kids 0-4 stay free!

Trout Lodge features modern hotel amenities nestled among 5,200 acres of picturesque, forest-covered hills and a sparkling 360-acre private lake. With many attractions nearby, including parks, caves, winery and more – there is something for everyone. Here’s a look at what we have coming up this fall!

In October, it’s our Great Pumpkin Jamboree that steals the show on Oct. 12 and 19. Take a wagon ride with your family to pick the perfect pumpkin for carving, taste Dutch oven cooking, and play fun fall games and more as you celebrate autumn at Trout Lodge.

Or if you’re looking for something a little spookier, Halloween takes over Trout Lodge on Oct. 25-31. Don’t worry; it’s a haunting of the family-friendly kind with a Haunted Wagon Ride, pumpkin carving, a Monster Mash carnival, trick-or-treating and a costume contest!

Maybe hanging out with your girlfriends is more of what you are looking for, if so our Outdoor Women’s Wellness Weekend (Oct. 11-13) is made for you. Designed for women 18+, this weekend is your opportunity to explore adventures, classes or lessons in the great outdoors.

Once October wraps up, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays!
If you’re looking for a new family tradition, check out our Homestyle Family Thanksgiving with awesome activities that will keep your whole family busy for days and a Thanksgiving Day meal complete with turkey and all of the trimmings at every table.

Afterwards while other families are at home snoozing on the couch, your family will be zip lining or taking a horseback ride or visiting the Arts & Crafts center (extra fee activities).

Wrap up your Thanksgiving by getting in the Christmas spirit with our Pioneer Christmas Village, complete with carolers and demonstrations from times gone by – apple press, blacksmithing, Dutch oven cooking, and more.

Don’t miss out on all the fun to be had at YMCA Trout Lodge. Book your getaway today or check out our other themed event weeks at www.troutlodge.org.
