Stayed in cabin #5. Recently upgraded. Sleeps family of 4 comfortably. 2 in upstairs bedroom and 2 on futon. Fishing in their pond is not good on October. Not one of us caught a fish. Only saw 1 other person catch one. Not a stocked pond in October. Walking distance to a few shops and to Texas Reds.

Our first three nights were in Cabin One. The floor is not even close to being level. They provide door stops to keep the doors open. The kitchen utensils were inadequate. We had to go to the office to get a regular skillet. The beds had weird box springs. Every time you moved in the bed, it would make a... More

We have stayed in Rio Colorado many years and we're very happy. We stayed in #20 and #21. Those cabins are now not available due to a rule they have which gives visitors the same cabin for the same days , year after year. My husband and I stayed in #25 this July. We knew it came with an efficiency... More

We stayed here for two nights, wish it could of been longer. The cabin was clean, cozy, and very comfortable. We felt secluded, and yet could walk to everything in town. If we ever come back to Red River we know where to stay. The owner was also very helpful. Thank You for a wonderful stay.

This is our 3rd stay here in 4 years. This time we brought most of our extended family any stayed in three cabins. The Rio Colorado is a great place for families with kids and dogs. Even during spring break there are two sled hills for the kids to play on. Our kids ages 11 and 14 love this place.... More

Me and my friend stayed in cabin 19. It was one of the most relaxing getaways I've been in a while. Amy in the office was very helpful explaining all of the activities in the area.

We loved staying at the Rio Colorado. The cabin was clean and the heater worked great! The only downside was that the floor and cabin was so crooked. One side of the cabin went down then you would have to climb up on the other side. Its was pretty bad...But, we still loved our stay! I will definately stay again!... More

We stayed in cabin 16. From the reviews thought this was a nice place. Cabin was old, nothing remodeled. Carpet and tile floors were worn out and dirty. One of the worst places we have ever stayed. Never again.
