We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Diamond M Ranch Resort. The owners were friendly and accommodating and supplied our every request. The bath house was the best and very clean. This is a very family-friendly campground.

Diamond Ranch Camp Ground was better than average in Alaska. I liked that the sites were spacious and there was lawn in between the campers and a shared firepit that we used and enjoyed. They are in the process of renovating the bathroom-shower complex. they would benefit by not having the fish cleaning station out side of the bathrooms where... More

Thank You for leaving us a GREAT review despite a few frustrations. I would like everyone to know that our June & August RV rate is $27 per night cheaper than July 10-31. With the high volume of sockeye salmon that enter the Kenai River during these dates and the dip netting season that opens for Alaska residents during these... More

Found this wonderful haven thankfully. Alaska having some terribly wet weather and we are campers. On the Kenai Peninsula and seemed like every place to stay was booked. We did not know Salmon were running and fishermen had all arrived!! Phoned Diamond M based on ad and Trip Advisor rating, and they had a studio/kitchenette for us and our little... More

Our bunkhouse facility has 2 studio/kitchenette apartments with private baths and decks and 4 bedrooms with shared bath. This facility is a great option when you are traveling with a dog. Since this room doesn't have the awesome view from the deck, i'm glad you were able to get up on our viewing deck and see the beauty including a... More

Great place to stay, very accommodating, very convenient, friendly and comfortable. We stayed in the Bunk House which had plenty of room and was comfortable and clean. For our purposes (dip netting in the Kenai River) this is a great choice of places to stay.

We are very close to GREAT Fishing in July, but May - September is also good fishing here and nearby. We are glad we were able to accommodate you during the dip netting frenzy which for those of you who don't know, it's when the Kenai River opens up for Alaska residents to dip net fish for red salmon which...

We stayed in a bunk house and it was very clean and the staff is wonderful and caring!!! Loved the piggy's!!! I would recommend it to anyone living here in Alaska or from anywhere else. Although we didn't fish they had plenty stations for you to clean your fish.

We have been using the pasture accommodations for the past few years. We don't require much for amenities, but appreciate the options. The owner and staff are very friendly, helpful and make you feel at home. We also took advantage of the fish cleaning station , which allowed us to have all of our harvest processed before returning home. I... More

We have been going down to the Kenai to dipnet for almost 10 years, and we always stay at Diamond M Ranch. It's like a homecoming each year when we arrive. Ronna remembers names and life stories year after year and makes you feel like part of the family. The renovations to the shower facilities and expansion of the property... 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
