It sweeps you away and lets you relax, enjoy an assortment of fun activities, hike, swim, watch the sunset or sunrise( if you dont stay up toooo late the night before....lol) from a lovely deck or lakeside. It is a place that lets you really relax... More

Part of a group that meets at Trout Lodge every July for a week. The staff goes out of their way to make our event a success, and is remarkably well trained and friendly, from lifeguards to desk staff to kitchen workers. Tons of activities for kids, or a great place to just relax, hang out, or take a walk... More

Trout Lodge is an amazing place for family vacations, especially if multiple generations are involved. There are things for our one year old daughter and my great grandparents alike. We have come here for over twenty years and they have new things every summer.

Trout Lodge staff are attentive and friendly. Meals are abundant with choices. Activity staff is welcoming and helpful! Something for everyone. The lake is beautiful and plenty of hiking around the camp. Totally worth the drive from Northern Illinois. We will return!

The building is on the side of a hill, so when you walk in, you are on the 4th floors, and to get to the rooms you go down, not up. Everything looks new, but the architect(s) worked really hard for the old rustic look. All rooms have balconies overlooking the lake. Too bad we couldn’t enjoy them as this... More

Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear the flies were an annoyance. While we try hard to keep the pesky things at bay, it can be hard when you are surrounded by woods. We agree on your tip of taking sunrise photos from your balcony. If you got any good ones, please share them! More

Hubby and I have been going almost every year (since we've been married in '03) to celebrate our anniversary for their V-day weekend retreat. The activities are lots of fun and the lady who does massages (Kristie) is FANTASTIC. Couples massages are available. On Saturday night, a candle light prime rib dinner is catered. Usually soft piano music plays while... More

We just spent our Thanksgiving holiday weekend at Trout Lodge. It was an easy 90-minute drive from St. Louis, although the road getting there is very, very dark at night. After an extremely restful sleep, we opened our curtains the next morning to look out at the clarity and beauty of the surrounding countryside and lake. We were amazed at... More
