Our recent stay (July 2016/ 3 nights) was nice...the park is nice...it has a fish pond (our cabin was located right behind the pond) with beautiful fish and a fountain in the middle. It was relaxing to listen to at night (it runs from 8-11:30 ) and you could feed the fish for $0.25. It was a cramped park with... More

I recognize that people differ in their requirements for an RV site. If you want close proximity to Ruidosa and a parking spot for the night, this will work. However, for a family experience, this was not ideal. The RV sites are the smallest I have ever seen. There is no outside space on site to spend time as a... More

Awesome place to camp. Me and my family had a great time. We are planning our trip for next year. We enjoyed the grills and the fire pit to roast marshmallows. The stream was very calming. It was really close to the lake about 5 minutes away.

The Rainbow Lake Cabin & RV Resort is nestled in the mountains about 1.5 miles from downtown Ruidoso. The park is quite beautiful with a fish pond with food to feed the fish available for purchase. There were two major drawbacks. First, the spaces are quite small compared to most other RV parks. Second, the site (40) where we were... More

The campground is located a short distance outside of Ruidoso and near the Mountain Gods Casino. A river runs through the campground with sites located on either side of the river. Our site was on the highway side, which was quite noisy. If one goes, request a site across the river away from the highway. The RV'ers in our group... More

The cabin was tiny but absolutely perfect. We knew how small it would be from the website. Full side bed and bunkbeds. 4 adults slept perfect. The cabin was clean. The staff was awesome. The area around the cabin was beautiful.

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
