I have been here many times in the past 6 years and unfortunately new owners and management don't have a clue. From troubles booking becauae of my dog (who has always been welcome in the past) to trouble getting my deposit back because of error or lack of book keeping. Time to find a new place in Ruidoso to spend...

Poor service overpriced very. Expensive laundry. When we called it was very difficult to get a response regarding reservation. Parking was very cramped only access to game room (if you want to call it that ) was upstairs. Poor cooking facilities. Staff new very little regarding the area.

I am very sorry you had such a bad taste in your mouth when you left. We strive so very hard to make sure everyone who enters as a guest feels like they are now family. We did have a new staff this past summer and over time they got better at giving out directions. We love it when new...

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...

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...

Thank you for visiting our park and Ruidoso. I am truly sorry you where unhappy with your site. We do have 4 outside pavilions, a creek running through the park, a feeding trout pond, and we back up to national forest with a huge field right behind the park for the dogs and kids alike to play in. We also...

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...

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...

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.
