We've Made So Many New Friends and Families this Year! The close of our Season has seen so many changes and so many new families choosing to vacation with us! The Resort will close for the winter on Saturday September 19…but don't panic! We're open to accept reservations all year and we officially re-open for business on Saturday May 14, 2016 to start a great Summer Season! The Rainbows End Resort is located on nearly two acres of level shaded land with 324' of coastline on Lake Chetek. The lake has over 60 miles of shoreline and the fishing is great! In addition to fishing and boating at the resort, our swimming area is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, BBQ and socializing with your neighbors. Make your 2016 reservations early!

Here at the Rainbows End Resort we encourage everyone to experience a true 'digitally disconnected' vacation while staying with us and enjoy the nature that surrounds them… with that in mind, we provide a small book library and many family board and card games for our guests to use while on the resort property. For those that just can't disconnect, we have WiFi hotspots available and TV antennas connected to each cabin. There's a reason that our guests have been returning to the Rainbows End for generations…come discover us for your next vacation and join our growing family!More
