  For thirty-seven years, Turkey Trot Acres in Candor, New York has earned a national reputation as one of “America’s Premier Wild Turkey Hunting Destinations”. This honor was earned by over three decades of hard work and sticking to our original game plan… To provide quality hunting, lodging and dining for our guests. We are proud of the fact that all of the hunting at Turkey Trot is the “Real Deal”. We hunt under strictly fair chase conditions, no game feeders, no high fences, or pen raised gobblers. You will find thousands of acres of prime wildlife habitat and guides that know how to hunt!  For more information on ‘America’s Legendary Turkey Hunting Hangout’.  Click here HUNTING LODGE  for all the details.

  Turkey Trot Lodge is a family run, all-seasons operation.  During fair weather we are often the destination for folks celebrating special occasions like WEDDING RECEPTIONS.  

  For other celebrations such as Reunions, Company BBQs, Fund Raising Events or Brick-Oven Parties visit a TASTE of TURKEY TROT.

  TURKEY TROT LODGE continues to EVOLVE! For over three decades our hunting folks and concert goers have mentioned to us that they would like return to the Lodge with their families and friends for a vacation is the Finger Lakes.
  Until now we did not offer the option of a short-tern rental of our facility. Well times are changing and so are we! Click the link below to visit our listing on and let’s plan a Turkey Trot Vacation!  We require booking at least 72 hours prior to arrival!
