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!

Spent an amazing week at RTR just a few weeks ago for a family vacation with my husband and our two boys, ages 6 and 8. It is truly a magical place. Everything exceeded my expectations...loved our cabin - rustic and so clean...a front porch I relaxed on every day, wonderful food, fantastic riding program, great hiking, fun night events,... More

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. If you... More

The food being offered was a wonderful mixture with something different every night and was cooked to you personal desire! They even offered special things for people with special needs in the food department. The horses were not only in excellent condition but were... More

I've just returned from my 16th visit to Rainbow Trout Ranch, and as always I'm certain I'll be going back again next year. The first year that I went to Rainbow Trout I was eight years old, and was a part of their "Cowpoke" (kids from 6-11) program. I have since gone through the kids and teen programs, and now,... More

If you are stuck in CRUISE control for family vacations, please consider Rainbow Trout Ranch instead! We took our children and grandchildren and it was amazing to see how all ages enjoyed themselves...our 5&7 year olds even cried when it was time to leave (and this crowd is not easily impressed!) The Van Berkums have the formula for how to... More

Rainbow Trout Ranch is the perfect place to go for beautiful scenery, friendly people and fun activities. Although many people were there with their kids or grand kids, I went alone and enjoyed everything so much. The Van Burkums and the staff are welcoming and filled with gracious hospitality. The main lodge(where you dine, dance and laze on the porch)... More
