Have been to kq ranch many times with our dogs...have not encountered any attack or wild dogs on any of our visits. Always had a great time and found the resort well kept..plus staff has always been helpful & friendly. Been CRA members for over 9 yrs and our family has really enjoyed vacationing at their resorts.

Been going to KQ for many years. Friendly and helpful staff, spotless restrooms, always clean and ready campsites. Lots of family activites and a covered pool in the colder months. Super place to relax. Have read some bad reviews, don't understand where these folks come from....IT'S CAMPING...RIGHT!

We are not members of this chain of RV Parks. We stayed at KQ Ranch for three nights as part of their promotional programs where you have to sit through a time share-like presentation. Our stay was very nice, we had a very relaxing time. The facilities seemed old and in need of some upgrading but the staff was very... More

We have been camping at KQ for many years. We have never had a negative experience there. Staff is always top notch and the facilities are always clean. We have a couple preferred campsites and usually are able to get one of them. The meals available are always tasty, even though simple at times. Activities are well managed. The cabins... More

We have been coming to KQ for many years. It's not the Ritz, but it is a great family place with a great small town Julian close. Our kids have grown up coming up here and the memories are priceless. If your looking for that special place that will not break the bank KQ is that place. No place is... More

We have been coming to KQ as CRA Members for 6 years. Our expectations are realistic and since we have been members, there have been steady improvements that we appreciate. Every time we go there, things are different and better. We sometimes write recommendations on the check out evaluation slip, and we are always impressed that "our" simple suggestions are... More

We made a reservation for KQ Ranch through Coast to Coast (membership resort system). We had problems and had to delay are arrival one day. Since we were less than 3 days from the reservation date we contacted the campground directly as per the Coast to Coast rules. We were told that the delay was no problem and that they... More

After owning here for over 14 years, I've seen just about everything. It's been great. It's been awful. It's been beautiful. It's been ugly. Sounds like my house which I've owned almost as long.... I would have given a 5 star rating in the past. I wouldn't do that today and don't expect that I will ever again. For me... More
