FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When is check-in and check-out?

Official check-in time is 5 pm; however, you are more than welcome to come early and enjoy all of our activities. Please make sure to check in first regardless of what time you arrive.

We ask that you check out of your room by 11:30 am. Later checkout times are available when occupancy allows for an additional fee. You need to notify the front desk for more information on late checkouts. Regardless of the time you checkout, you are still welcome to enjoy the property and activities for the rest of the afternoon.

Where can I park?

Parking near the lodge is located just up the hill in the first parking lot (right-hand road at the fork). We also offer handicapped parking in front of the lodge. For those lodging in the family cabins, limited parking is available outside of the cabins. There are also parking lots available by the Ranch and Arts & Crafts. During the summer season, no vehicles are permitted to drive through Camp Lakewood, therefore in order to get to the Ranch by vehicle, you will need to drive back to Highway AA, make a right and follow that road to our second entrance. The ranch is at that entrance. (Or, you may always walk to the Ranch.) Speed limit on property is always 10 MPH.

You are allowed to park temporarily at the front of YMCA Trout Lodge in order to offload or pack up your luggage, but then must park in the designated areas mentioned above.

What meals are included in my stay?

The meals that are included with the cost of your stay include dinner the day you arrive until lunch the day you depart. Should you come early on arrival day or stay late on departure date and want additional meals, you may purchase these at the front desk.

Do you have wifi?

Yes! Wifi is free and does not require a password just log onto YMCA.

What activities do you offer?

At YMCA Trout Lodge you can explore the dozens of activities we offer including water activities, zip-lining, arts & crafts, archery, mini golf, and so much more! We have a weekly activity schedule that is placed on our website each week that you can view here. There you will find a list and description of our activities for that week, including age limits, extra fees (if any), and whether it requires a sign-up to participate. You will also receive a printed booklet for you to refer to during your stay.

How do I sign up for activities?

If you wish, you may sign up in advance by calling 888-FUN-YMCA (888-386-9622) especially during the peak season, so you are more likely to get the activities you want. During these high volume times activities can fill up quickly, so we cannot guarantee the activities you want will be available if you wait until you arrive. If you don’t wish to sign up in advance, you can always sign up for activities at the front desk or country store upon arrival or at any time during your stay. During assigned hours there will also be booths in the main lobby and at the boathouse that you can sign up for activities as well.

Where can I find activity supplies?

Front Desk: Equipment for pool, ping pong, board games, geocaching and scavenger.

Gymnasium: Basketballs and playground balls. Weights and cardio equipment in the back, ask the front desk for the code

Boat House: All other sporting equipment. If the boathouse is closed, please check with the front desk. Boathouse hours are 9 am-8 pm, Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend.

Can I charge purchases to my room?

Yes! You may make room charges in Arts & Crafts, as well as the Country Store. Please make sure that you have credit card information on file at the front desk and you will be set to go!
