Beach Activities

Young’s Lodge on the Chariton has one of the finest privately owned beaches on the Chariton River, in Macon County Missouri. Boasting over 400 yards of fine white sand in a secluded area around a bend in the river, the “Beach at Young’s Lodge” has everything a beachgoer, or water lover would want.

Our beach is clean and spacious with easy entry into the warm waters of the Chariton River during the summer. Whether you want to camp on it at night, lay out in privacy and tan, play volleyball, ride ATV’s, have a large party, cookout, enjoy live music, take a pit-stop while tubing or canoeing your way down the Chariton, our beach is one of the nicest.

All this makes our beach a great place to have a party, or just get away from everything. Plan your next outing, party, corporate event or get together at our beach! Call us today at 660-768-5654, or 660-998-3486 to book your party!

From time to time, we may sponsor a fund-raiser or host an annual event. These events have priority over individuals wishing to have a more private setting.

Privacy and security-Young’s lodge takes the privacy and security of our guests seriously. All trespassers will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Security cameras on our property identify trespassers, and those who leave trash on the beach and will be reported to the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The river rises and falls with rainfall, therefore the width of it may change significantly. Be sure to monitor the weather if you plan to camp at night.
