Rainbow Roundup Trout Ranch is an interesting place.
I’m a glass half full kind of person so let’s start with the pros- the location is directly off highway 285 with really easy access in and out.
The campground is also located on the road to a lesser known state park- Staunton State Park. This is an awesome place to check out.
There are 2-3 little fishing ponds on the property that are well stocked (read:easy pickings) with trout. These ponds attract lots of families with little kiddos wanting to wet a line. Very cute idea but can get crowded on weekends.
Now- on to the campground- yikes. Not exactly what one would hope for in a campground.
There are maybe 8–10 spots, of which 4-5 of them are permanent residents with some shadier looking setups.
There was no one that came out to meet us, no one that checked in with us the whole time.
The spots themselves are basically all centered around a gravel culdesac. The hookups are old and can be problematic, the picnic tables need serious repair and and many of the sites had been trashed with litter- very sad.
Not somewhere we would visit again for camping but maybe a quick fishing fix!
