Make the Most of Your Getaway 

YMCA Trout Lodge is a nonprofit resort, conference center and outdoor education provider located 90 minutes from St. Louis, MO just outside of Potosi, MO. The campus is situated among 5,200 beautifully wooded acres and next to a 360-acre private lake with a swimming area, boating and fishing, a ranch and horseback riding trails, and many other natural and recreational amenities. We have been a favorite destination for more than 50 years! Rates are inclusive, covering lodging, meals and free activities.
