We had planned on staying at Rainbow Lake in an RV, but when a last minute mechanical emergency made this impossible, we switched to one of their family cabins. We had two families of 3, with 2 kids, and though we were pretty cozy, we were comfortable. The campground is busy, but clean and quiet. We had no problems leaving... More

we rented a cabin, the cabin was one room had a full size bed and a bunk bed in it. VERY small!! water heater was small especially for 4 people. The nice thing was being able to buy your own sleds and sled on the forest bordering the property. I would def recommend double checking your cabin reservation so that... More

It's a great place to stay. Some of us stayed in travel trailers and some in cabins. The staff is very nice. If I have to say something that could be improved I would say the WiFi. I guess that could be a good or bad thing...depending on how important it is to you.

We had reservations and arrived after dark on our first visit to this property. It is off season so the offices closes early at 3pm. There was a sign at the office stating late arrivals could get help from the after hours person and listed his space number. This didn't help us as we were unable to locate that space... More

Coming from El Paso, this was a great getaway for the long weekend. The resort was clean (well maintained) and the staff was very accomodating. And its refreshing to go to a campground that is as kid and pet friendly as this place is. Too many times, I've been to RV parks in our area that I've heard of complaints... More

This was a disappointing visit. We were to have 2 sites right next to each other but ended up close. The site we ended up in was nicer because our back window had a view of a wooded preserve. Our kids camper was so close to their neighbors that it was hard to put their awning out. We pulled over... More

The atmosphere is fantastic, the cabins are excellent,and the staff is tremendously friendly. I have special times that I can get to this area and the management works hard... More

We have stayed here several times only to experience great hospitality each time. Cabins are heated & cooled well. The sleeping accommodations were comfortable. We love that some of the cabins are pet friendly. We will return.
