This year we came to RTR for the first time and we will be back in the future. The ranch has its very special atmosphere, starting with Doug telling wonderful stories in his rocking chair by the fireplace, Linda who does an incredible job regarding simply everything and finally Jane and David who are true horseman, true horse experts.

This was our fifth family vacation at Rainbow Trout Ranch. Our 20 year old daughter and 15 year old son--and my husband and I--have loved it every time. It is a beautiful place, and we really feel away from our busy lives. Our cabin was charming and very comfortable; we loved reading there in front of the fireplace. The food... More

The Van Berkum Family are an extremely welcoming, organized and professional group that have owned and operated this dude ranch for many years. Their staff of interns are impressively well trained. All of our meals were delicious and their horses were simply the best! This was my first and only dude ranch experience and my family and I enjoyed ourselves... More

Fourteen members of my family spent a week at the ranch - 7 kids and 7 adults. The kids stayed busy all day in their camps: riding their horses, hiking, crafts, swimming. The camp counselors wore them out! While the kids were occupied, we rode our horses and relaxed on the beautiful front porch. The meals were wonderful! All of... More

RTR is a fantastic vacation for people of all ages. The log cabins are cosy, well kept and decorated with delightful cowboy memorabilia. The food is excellent and the staff were exceptional. There was never a dull moment with activities for kids, teens and adults from dawn until dusk. As a passionate horse rider I had an absolute ball. A... More

I could go on for ten thousand words about how much we enjoyed our week, people, food, horses, nature, mountains. I think the fact that most of the people we met were return guests speaks for itself. We will be back next year.

Our teens spent a week with their grandparents here. They loved the activities, surroundings, horses and staff. It was very clean. The wranglers were excellent. The horses were well trained and made it a special time. They want to go back!

We have just returned from our second visit to the Rainbow Trout Ranch. Another wonderful experience. Everything from check in to check out is professional. The horse back riding is spectacular through mountain meadows and forests. The wranglers are all college or grad students, know the horses, how to teach safe riding to all ages, and are personable.
