Been here a few more times since my last review. We only live an hour away and come by for day use sometimes because we love the atmosphere. We still miss the trees, but there is nothing that can be done about that. I doubt there are any pine tree filled camping places in southern California anymore. The Saturday is... More

Got a free stay for 20 days sun thru Thursday. Sales pitch went from Ok to awful. This is not 5 stars anymore sorry. The lake is being dug up due to the silt built-up. No fishing,one bathroom/ shower for men and women. Sites are on uneven pea gravel. Wolf center looked cool. Wasn't able to see the trailer sites.... More

Since their website gives no prices, we inquired and left our e mail. Instead of a reply, we received a phone call confirming our " reservation" . I responded that we only wanted prices, because we were looking for places to camp locally, since it is too hot to camp at our go to place Agua Caliente in the desert.... More

Recently visited this RV resort. What a dump! Overgrown weeds everywhere. Dusty, dirty gravel sites. Completely 'unkept'. Sites were so narrow there is very little room for a chair or table. Very spread out over many acres. A long walk to any of the amenities. Just feel fellow RVrs should be aware. Drove an hour to get there and check... More

Husband and I stayed this past weekend with 3 children and a dog in our 5th wheel. Although you can stay in a tent, other RV or rent one of their cabins. We stayed for the weekend as part of their promotion, and in turn listened to their presentation. If you like to camp or travel, you may want to... More

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
