We loved this campground. Clean and perfect location. The owners and staff are so helpful with where to fish, shop and even helpful for other areas around Alaska. The RVS are not tight and you have plenty of room. We stayed with family in one of the 4 RVS in a square. It’s awesome! Thank you Ronna and Blair, 10 stars in my book❤️

Lots of rules to acknowledge at chevk in but apparently mot followed. Quiet hours were not enforced after contacting manager twice. Fresh water is muddy color. Tree limbs need attention. Leaving after first night stay. Requested refund for second night but not holding our breath.

We decided to take our second camping trip of the season out at Diamond M Ranch after we heard great reviews. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted with no running water at our site :( Granted we came early in the season (first week of May) so it took us by surprise because the website didn’t say that. We found this out AFTER we had already leveled our camper. We called them and they told us the ground water was still frozen but we could fill up at the bath house. We had come from anchorage and our four kiddos were exhausted by the time we got there, but we did what we had to do and hooked our camper back up and filled our fresh water tank. Bed time came and when we ran the water pump, the water was yellow. I definitely had the sads. However, the next morning was very pleasant! One of the owners came out to our site to greet us during breakfast which was awesome. We went and walked the ranch and got greeted by all the animals. We decided to take the 1 and a half hour drive to Homer to enjoy the beach and come back and make dinner. I’m assuming our stay was only meh due to us being so early in the season. Overall, we are willing to give this place another try later in the summer so hopefully, our time will be a little better (:

After living, working, traveling and visiting Alaska since the mid 1970's the Diamond M has become our go to destination for our annual summer visits back to Alaska. The Martin Family and the excellent staff at the Ranch couldn't try harder to make you feel comfortable and at home. It is not the Hawaiian Hilton, but that's not what we keep going back to Alaska year after year for is it? Arriving there is like going home to the family farm after a lifetime of travel and adventure - - just a warm, comfortable feeling and good fit - - with people happy to have you around. If you are looking for base station for a few days on the Kenai Peninsula, a week of fishing or just a quiet, laid back camper parking location make the Diamond M the first place you check, but look early, availability goes fast.

When being in Alaska for the first time you want your experience to be of a high caliber and with the help of Diamond M Ranch Resort that happened for me. All of the amenities there were in great condition and worked flawlessly. When browsing around the land you might come across some of the most entertaining farm life you have ever been in the presents of and it'l be worth your time to hang out with them. However, the feature that you will be most grateful for is the hospitality and kindness that Blair and Ronna will show you. In short I can say just from being there for two weeks I'll be able to call these people good friends far into the future because of the warmness that they displayed when staying at the Ranch. So, if you are looking for a place to escape to in the Kenia peninsula your journey of looking has come to a close, go ahead and get your date today!!

Our antique period room (think Miss Kitty's Gunsmoke Hotel) overlooked the Alaskan tundra as far as you could see in a 180 degree direction. My interesting conversation with the owners son unfolded the unique history of the Ranches construction and idiosyncrasies. A must stay if you are anywhere near Kenai, Alaska T;o)m & Marlene Campbell North Carolina

We enjoyed full hookup for three days. We felt very safe snugged in our trailer as the autumn weather blustered. The goats and sheep were quite social and visited us daily, ;) Diamond M Ranch is a very well run, clean facility.

So, I have pindered on this all summer here is my honest no bull, review. Pros, the staff are very, friendly which in Alaska is the norm I might add, the space we got, was huge is allowed my to park my trailer and have two tents in one spot, now we paid for all three so it wasn't free and it was in the pasture not the RV park. Amenities, are pretty darn good, these guys are located in Kenai so they know why people stay here, they are fishing, Thus there are cleaning tables, there is laundry, they have showers etc. The cons, well we stayed in the pasture, i grew up on a farm hello? Yes there is manure in said pasture, not a big deal but maybe mention that. They have rules but not enforecd great, our neighbors were a little loud at night so some enforcement would be nice. But the big one, is I think I was over charged, i emailled them and crickets, no reply none. This is the same email i recieved email from them and the one I sent email too. Based on that fact alone probably wont be staying here again.

I'm glad you enjoyed the space and with covid I'll admit we where short handed and I'm sorry for noisy neighbors - I did get a few phone calls throughout the season and followed up on those I can assure you. As to over charging every email comes to my in box and I take pride in responding personally to each one - I don't remember seeing one that asked about over charges - I'd encourage you to email us again or better yet give us a call. We are not perfect and sometimes our software makes mistakes. I'd like to turn this 3 into a 4 if I could. You can email me directly at manager@diamondmranch.com (907) 283-9424
