Best time fishing. Cabin was excellent. All one could ask for. Beautiful scenery all around. Christie and Kevin are the best. Thanks for the fun and we will be back for more. Don't worry about cell service, it only interrupts fun in the outdoors.

Parked our RV here and it's the most beautiful place! Clinch mountain and Laurel Bed Lake and Tumbling Creek are overly picturesque, a challenging gravel road ride with pullovers for fishing or just sight seeing. Highly recommend.

Rainbow campground is exactly what we were looking for during our weekend fishing trip. It was November, so many of the seasonal campers were gone and the bath house closed, but we were made aware of that when we made our reservation. We had a full hookup site, so not having a bath house wasn't a problem. There isn't cell service, but there was wifi. It was a little spotty, but worked enough for us to check messages daily. Everyone we came across, including Kevin (the owner), was incredibly friendly and hospitable. There's not many places you go that people motion for you to come over and pull up chairs for you to join them. We played several games of horseshoes, it can be addictive. We went ahead and made our reservation to return in the spring since peak season runs from April to September and they stock trout 4 times a week during those months. The campground stays hopping during that time and there don't seem to be many nightly sites. Most sites are occupied by season...
