They are way over priced for what is offered. DO NOT STAY HERE. Oh the famous cinnamon rolls are frozen from the store also they are...

Heather and her staff went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. I just recently had knee replacement surgery and I get around well but they kept offering to take me anywhere on the grounds with their carts so that I did not miss out on anything. Clean lodges and great location. They are 15...

Price is $50 higher for a walk up boat rental, then it is for a guest. Most other resorts are within $20 difference. This place used to be the go to spot on the river...not anymore. Boats are not in the best of shape, seats are torn and noisy, dock hand cleaned and wiped down other boats but not ours....

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...

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...

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...

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...
