Just got back from a week's family vacation - 18 of us ranging from age 8 to 75. Everything about the stay was AMAZING! The hospitality, horseback riding, fishing, scenery, hikes, food, staff, dancing.... a true working dude ranch experience! Loved every minute of it! Activities for all ages, a true family experience. We will cherish the trip and memories... More

My wife and I spent a week at RTR in July, 2015 (I had to select "Sept 2015 below but we actually traveled in July). We had never been to a Dude ranch before and really had no idea what to expect. This being our 25th wedding anniversary I really wanted our time to be special. In short, it was... More

We arrived as a large group of 5 adults and 8 kids to RTR for a holiday of friends and family for a lifetime. We had been researching from the UK dude ranches, and had finally plumped on RTR by a combination of personal recommendation and Trip Advisor reviews. Although expensive, we had good feelings by how accommodating and inclusive... More

Where do I even begin to write this review? My trip to Rainbow Trout Ranch fulfilled so many dreams for me that I have tears in my eyes as I write this. You see, I grew up in the 70's on Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie and the Black Stallion book series. I was fascinated by everything that... More

Way beyond my expectations, the pictures don't capture the beauty of this place. The staff was so nice and helpful. I haven't experienced anything like this in my life. The absolute best vacation ever. My daughter had a smile on her face the entire we week. She made several friends and now emailing them. Myself and two other families signed... More

Such a wonderful vacation! We LOVED our time at the ranch and can't wait to return. Excellent experience for the whole family! Clean rooms, great food, awesome wranglers and staff, and good old family fun. The owners make you feel like family staying in their home. WE LOVED IT!

Where do I start? This was hands down the best vacation my family has taken. We have traveled all over the world and we can't think of going anywhere else next summer for vacation. From the minute you arrive, the Van Berkum family treats you like family. The cabins are rustic, very clean, and the beds are very comfortable. The... More

My husband and I decided to make a last minute getaway trip to Rainbow Trout Ranch and enjoyed everything about the ranch and the staff.

​Rainbow Trout Ranch goes well beyond beyond the average dude ranch vacation. The meals are top notch - homemade, one of a kind recipes and smiling, happy service. The teen and kid programs are fun and very interactive. My brother and I were part of the teen program, and we had a blast. Our counselor was awesome, we played lots... More

Growing up in the midwest, when we would drive past livestock and 'that odor' would filter into the car, my father would say, "That's the smell of money." A similar scent mixes with pine in the crisp mountain air at The Rainbow Trout Ranch. Our family just spent a week at this magical place. The ranch is owned/operated by the... More
