We came here from the rave reviews of my parents. My husband and I were having a babymoon and wanted to get away to a place that is secluded and relaxing. The staff were amazing and greeted us upon arrival with smiles. We stayed in cabin 4 which was perfect for us. They have everything you need in your cabin... More

We have been coming to Rainbow Drive Resort for 20 years now, and I have to tell you, this resort continues to upgrade to meet the expectations of its audience. Our Small Lodge had been completely redone since our last visit, and the upgrades provided a very comfortable living area. The staff is great, from the front desk to the... More

All it took was a quick phone call after looking over their site and we were booked and ready. The cabins were very clean, fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and silverware. Toilet paper, soap, linens, everything you need. ( some don't have this and you have to pay top dollar for these extras thinking they're included example: Marvel Resort... More

My 11 year old son and I made reservations for a Friday and Saturday night. Check in went smooth, they were polite, and very friendly. Upon our arrival, they asked questions about if there was anything we needed including firewood delivery. We chose the camp site package, because we like to ruff it. The camp site is nice, clean and... More

Our family met there for a family reunion. It was a beautiful place with good fishing, and we enjoyed being there very much. A boat was provided with each unit for free, but We weren't informed on-line or upon check-in that we would be charged for using the boat motors, so ended up with a whopping bill when we went...

This review is of the pre-booking system they use. I was looking for a place to take my wife for a weekend getaway so she can relax and I could fish a little. Found this place and it looked really nice. They had a romance package listed on the webpage for 540.00. When I emailed them for a reservation they... More

This is a place for folks that love to be outdoors and love fishing. We have been coming here for 20 years, with our kids when they were young, with our elderly parents, with our kids and their friends as teens and young adults, and just the two of us. We love to come in early Spring because the fishing... More
