Just got home from 5 days tent camping in the Pasture. Very enjoyable, for a second year in a row. Lots of hard working staff, tending to the needs of the guests. Following their reasonable rules, makes for an enjoyable visit for all. Thank you

We've been staying at the Diamond M for 12 years now. This is a great location for getting to the boat docks and beach accesses to the Kenai River. The Martin family is constantly improving the campgrounds and the amenities. There are two shower/restroom buildings (upper and lower), with a laundry located in the lower building, plus two fish cleaning... More

We love this place! Starting with Ruth and Roger - the most lovely RV campground hosts and caretakers that come out and help the family run Resort in the summer are the sweetest people ever. The staff, the owners, the family atmosphere...these folks know what they are doing top to bottom.

Thank You to Switzerland!! You must have been here when we were trying to finish up the installation of 3 new washer/dryers. We now have two facilities and two separate bathroom/shower facilities. You also must have been parked in the oldest portion of our park where the price is cheaper, but the sites are smaller. We have 57 supersize sites!... More

Our first visit to Diamond M (heck, our first visit to Alaska). Good signage at road, then a long dirt driveway to the office - all the way to the last section of the resort, not near the main road and the first set of campsites you come to when you arrive - signage to office was small when we...

Diamond M has a good location for dipnetting but after paying $76 per night for a tent sight, they said we couldn't clean our fish there after the check out time of noon. They said we should have arranged for late check out at $10/hour. Seems like it should be part of the package especially at that price. Disappointing!

Ronna M, Owner at Diamond M Ranch Resort, responded to this review

We are very accommodating to special requests except when we are 200% full and every departure has a new guest arriving. There has to be a policy and check-out is noon. We understand the rates are high during Dip Netting Season, July 10-31, but when we open the pasture for overflow parking and there is 130 parties out there, not... More

Spent a week with the family for fishing. Great place to stay. Very centralised for what ever you want to do. Very friendly staff, they treat you like family. This was our second year staying with them. Very clean showers and laundry room. Fish cleaning station are handy. Thanks again Diamond M Ranch. My grandkids love the animals.

We value "Family" and it is fun to accommodate families. During Dip Net Season for AK residents, July 10-31, it is expensive so please do consider coming back for Labor Day or kick off next summer with us Memorial Weekend. We love it when Alaska sees our park outside of the Fish Frenzy! Thank You! More

We had a great time at the Ranch! There was plenty to do and the views were amazing. We were impressed with the bathroom and shower area best we have seen. The farm tour was very interesting and the kids loved the animals. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay again!

Thanks for staying with us and for partaking in the Farm Tour. We do get word that our bathrooms are the nicest in the state for RV Parks. I have been to many myself and having your own private bathroom as opposed to a stall helps make you feel right at home. Thanks You! More

We were referred to this campground by a previous camper while staying in Fairbanks who told us horseback riding was available. RV Trip Wizard also shows this as an amenity of this park. It was OK. We don't really like quad style (4 RVS around a community fire pit) but if you're in a group this would be great. Full... More

We have several skulls on display in support of our old west landscaping theme. The ranch used to provide horse back rides until our oldest graduated and took off to college. As a family owned and operated business, we do our best to serve our guests to the capacity we are able. I am not familiar with Trip Wizard, but... More

We stayed at DiamondM ranch for two weeks with our trailer. They were very professional and accommodating to our needs. We had full hook-ups, a place to do our laundry, a nice overview deck to have get-togethers and we also went on a hike with our host, which was a fun day. We will be staying with them again when...

It was a pleasure to get out and hike with you and get to know you better. I designed those hikes so I can break away and enjoy what I love about the state. It is hard to break away from the list of to-do's, but it is so worth it. We look forward to your next visit. More
