Having stayed here on a previous trip to Alaska, we decided to once again try them.
The RV park was absolutely full being it was King salmon time.
The owners are very helpful and courtious. The rates were a bit higher than the last trip seven years ago, but they have done so much. Adding in two more parking areas, a new shower house and fish cleaning station.
They are very close to Soldatna and Kenai.

It is worth the money for the full hookup.

Thank you for your review and thank you for seeing our vision and improvements. Yes, the 3 weekends between July 10-31 will be packed to the gills with tons of fish in the river and most of Anchorage and Mat-Su Valley coming down to dip net and catch their winter supply of fish. The RV site prices do go up considerably during this busy time, but overflow in the green meadow (pasture) does provide lower rates if you can handle no hook-ups. We also provide the buddy system - 2 rigs to a super-size RV site. This option provides full hook-ups but tighter accommodations. If you avoid this extra busy "dip netting season" you will find the Diamond M Ranch Resort a destination you don't want to miss in your Alaskan Experience! If you want fish, fish, fish then come during this peak and don't mind the cost or the crowds!!

Our family stayed at the ranch for a week, and regretted every minute of it. The place was jammed packed, and yet they only offered a meer four bathroom's with showers. The staff is incredibly rude and will find every way they can to make you pay extra. Every night their fake security gaurd patrols the camp and if you are not wearing a stupid paper wrist band while on site, he will rudely try and run you off the ranch. We even had an inccedent were after 6 days of being in the water, our wrist bands were coming undone and the staff refused to replace them. The fish cleaning stations are small and always occupied, and the the smell from them absolutly stinks! Please take my advice and spend your money some where else.

Your review that you regretted every minute of your 1 week stay at Diamond M Ranch Resort saddens me. I wish towards the beginning of your stay, you would have spoken to the owner so some of your concerns could have been eliminated and the rest of the week flowed more smoothly. We make every effort to make every guest comfortable and it breaks my heart to hear that you did not receive our top priority - customer service! Wrist bands during this 2 week stretch of time are provided in order to keep the 30,000 people who come to the area over the weekend from using our fish cleaning station and showers. The office is always happy to replace a wrist band and I would love to know who it was that said no. Would you be so kind as to email me directly at stay@diamondmranch.com or maybe you would reconsider your review. Thank You!

Our best park so far in Alaska, the choice of treed areas or open gravel areas. The staff were extremely helpful and the facilities extremely clean. Sensational views from the view deck. Great strong WiFi. We liked the theme to the park old town theme very interesting and they are continuing to improve the park with information readily accessible for all to see, they have farm tours no charge, and many theme nights. All the information is given to you when you arrive. Our only negative was no cable tv, yes only a small negative. We travelled in a motorhome.

Room Tip: Get a spot amongst the trees

We stayed here for one night. An interesting concept of 'Old Miner/town" theme, which I liked. Incredible views from the veranda with the possiblity of seeing wild life. (we did not see any) However, my daughter refused to go outside due to the overwhelming smell of rotting Salmon offal which is apparently deposited in the field next door.

Our family stayed just one night and felt welcome from the minute we arrived. The rv site we rented was in the trees and was a perfect site for our family. It wasclose to tent hill where on the night we stayed there was a community marshmallow roast. We arrived late to the roast and were cheerfully greeted by the staff and owners. Our family enjoyed exploring the nearby trails and corrals. We will definitely stay again!

Made reservations with a group for 2 nights. One member of group decided to stay 4 nights. So staff changed everyone to 4 nights. After being told they messed up they said that we got the "buddy" rate and it would be more expensive to pay for only 2 nights. The math doesn't add up on that one. So for 2 nights I paid $113 dollars to stay in a pasture with cows. Then when buddy that stayed 4 days checked out they charged him an extra 50 saying I still owed a balence. Poor customer service. Will never stay there again and I recommend the same to any hard working American.

Only four bathrooms for entire campsite, which had well over a hundred rv's. Camp ground security was poorly run, and the camp master knocked on our camper at 2 am , to tell us we had to buy a permit to set up our tent . We booked our reservations four months in advance, and I regret ever staying at this site.

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
