My reservation was made months in advance and I was told I would be in an overflow field. I didn't know the overflow field was a used cow field. Wi-Fi does not reach to the field. If you plan on using their shower and toilets, get ready for a long trek. July is fish month in Kenai. Never being to... More

Tent sites on the beach through the city of Kenai are $55/night this time of year. We are charging $57 for a nice grassy site 50'x50' that might have a dried out cow pie on it and you get free showers and free fish cleaning station, something you don't get on the beach. We have thought about not doing the... More

We were under the impression that this campground was near the Kenai River bank. First you have to walk out of the camping area, then down one dirt road, then turn left down another. After going past the barn & fence it is another 1/2 mile through the brush trail to the river. Instead we drove 6 miles back to... More

Our property borders State Parks and the Kenai River Estuary is the only thing between us and the Kenai River bank. We make it clear on the phone that it is a 3/4 mile hike from the park and some prefer the 1-10 mile drive to easy access fishing holes. Those who don't mind the hike, love our secret hole... More

Stayed at the Resort for a motorcycle rally. There was only one cabin available to stay in during the event. While it was a remote cabin the staff did everything they could to make us comfortable. We will definitely stay here again.

I'm guessing there was only the remote cabin remaining when you called to make a reservation because we do have 4 Historical Suites overlooking the Kenai River Flats and Alaska Mountain Range as well as several cabins, rooms, and RV rentals available. I'm glad you were able to make do with our, I assume, Homesteaders Cabin. We absolutely love the... More

I would give this place 10 stars if tripadvisor would let me! This was our favorite place to say from Denali to Seward in our month long RV trip in AK. The owners went way above and beyond. We have 4 boys and worried about being loud for the retired campers. This place had something for everyone!!! At first, we... More

What a pleasure it was to serve your family! We try to tell guests that you get what you pay for, but some don't believe and choose elsewhere. We are glad you took the one night gamble and then stayed as long as you could before your airplane reservations required you to go. We look forward to partnering with you... More

Our stay at the Diamond M Ranch was wonderful. The place is fashioned after an old Alaskan town. Each establishment is a room with its own theme, quite charming! The place was very clean and decorated tastefully. The staff was very helpful and when we asked for a tour of the farm, Sonora, one of the daughters, volunteered. She was... More

Diamond M Ranch is no doubt at the very top of my RV parks, stay list. Diamond M Ranch has various activities each day of the week and are very helpful in showing and planning your stay in the area. Saturday evening pot luck dinner, and Monday night Bible Study was my favorite. The shower bathhouse is the cleanest and... More

The young and old alike enjoy the farm and farm animals. The small family farm is such a thing of the past in so many ways, but not here at Diamond M Ranch Resort. The ranch doesn't get in the way of the resort, rather complimentary. It is nice to enjoy both!! More

We made a reservation on short notice (just a couple of days) and was lucky they had room and could accommodate our dogs. They were incredibly friendly, returning our messages (Facebook) and phone calls quickly. The property is large and wonderful to walk and explore. They have a large field at the entrance with horses, llamas, cattle, and even pens... More

Thank you for your review; how sweet!! FYI, we do have a few fans we loan out upon request and the bathroom fan with the bedroom window open does also add airflow. We certainly have had some "hot" by Alaskan standard days. Usually the window open is more than enough, but our home to has been a little too warm... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Diamond M Ranch Resort is located between the towns of Soldotna and Kenai (both within 5 miles) and is centrally located on the Kenai Pensinsula with Seward and Homer accessible for great day trips. Customer Service is our #1 priority. Four Historical Suites in Mainstreet Lodge,cabins to meet every budget and a nationally recognized RV Park are here to meet your traveling needs. The famous Kenai River is open for great fishing especially during the months of May-September and we do have a 3/4 mile trail with river access. Please note July 10-31 the river opens to Alaska Residence for dip netting. The 3 weekends in the middle of this time and everything in between creates a very busy time for the entire Kenai/Soldotna area. We strive to provide a calm and safe haven away from the chaos, but with our overflow pasture parking we do reach 200% capacity in our RV Park during these 10-16 days of July. Plan your trip accordingly knowing higher rates and higher crowds, but more fish during this time. We hope we will get to share our slice of paradise with you!! ... more   less
