Make sure you talk with the owners. Extremely nice.
Also rent the six-seater bicycle and go and see the horses. Pay a visit with "grandma" and "grandpa", they might let the kids check the chicken coop for fresh eggs.

Family friendly, RV knowledgeable. Will stay again.

Thank You for the review. I am so glad your family enjoyed the spin on our Matti Mobile (6 seater bike) seeing the farm animals and checking for eggs!! I overheard the children enjoyed the complimentary horse rides, too!!

While traveling to Alaska with friend in RV decidied I didn't think I could sleep in it. So I was lucky to have stayed in the Wendler suite at Diamond m ranch. So much more than room, actually small apartment. i it was clean, comfortable and perfect while my friends stayed in the RV for 5 nights. Great find!!

What a wonderful place to stay on the beautiful Kenai peninsula. We stayed in the Brown & Hawkins suite. The room was clean and spacious, great views including the volcano Redoubt. My daughter and I loved the Coca Cola theme. Our beds were comfortable. The owner's and staff are very helpful, caring and willing to give of their time. Ronna gave us a guided tour of the working farm where we got to pet Larry the lama, Sweetie Pie the cow, horses and pigs. We walked the trails in the forest, saw moose droppings (which we tried not to step in), old farm equipment, a tree fort and some beautiful views of the flats, bald eagles overhead and moss at our feet, heaven on earth. The Kenai is home to some of the greatest fishing and sight seeing in Alaska. Diamond M Ranch is the best place to stay on the Kenai.

Our stay at the Diamond M Ranch in the Greentree Suite was wonderful. Ranch owners were welcoming and friendly, and showed us right to our suite. The view off the wrap around deck was gorgeous, and included several beautiful mountains and birds! The jacuzzi tub in the suite was very nice. Highly recommend this beautiful suite to everyone for a relaxing getaway! We also walked around the campground and were impressed by the campground's layout and accommodations, seems like a great place for summer camping!

We have stayed at the Diamond M Ranch every summer for our fishing adventure for the last 5 years. It has grown quite a bit over that time. They work very hard on customer service and have very high standards. We always enjoy the kind and generous people there. We choose to camp in a quieter part of the resort farther away from all the hubbub as that suits us better. Beautiful setting.

Room Tip: We only tent camp there.

Customer Service is our #1 priority! Everyone who enters our gate deserves the best we can offer. July 12-26 does get busy so keep in mind staff is working overtime to accommodate and keep up with the large numbers of fish and people during this short time period. We are glad repeat guests like yourselves have found a quiet place. Thank You!!

Diamond M Ranch has been our home away from home for our annual Alaska fishing trips since 2002. All of our favorite fishing holes are conveniently located within a few miles of the Diamond M Ranch. Shopping for groceries and fishing supplies are also convenient since they are located on the outskirts of Soldotna. Their dedication and commitment to making their guest visits as hassle free and enjoyable as possible is evident everywhere. It doesn't matter if you’re just pitching a tent, staying in one of their RV spaces, or great cabins (which happens to be our preference). Everyone is always invited to attend the many community and social activities that are put on by Diamond M Ranch. These activities include bonfire gatherings, potluck feasts, hiking, clamming, and other outdoor excursions. If you’re lucky and wise enough to listen, Grandpa Carol Martin might happen by one of the fish cleaning stations and share with you the optimum way to filet your Salmon (and he will take those savory Salmon bellies and smoke them if you’re not going to keep them). It just doesn't get any better than getting to experience the Martin’s way of life while catching our share of Alaska’s Salmon. Getting to know the Martin family has been an absolute pleasure and has made our Alaskan adventures and experiences even more enjoyable!

We have stayed at Diamond M for four years in a row. We have been impressed with their service and high standards. Reservations are necessary, at least during the peak season, and their reservations staff are professional and detail oriented. Any minor issues we've had over the years have been quickly addressed. The location is great for kids with woods and paths and pastures for them to explore. It's the best RV park close to the fishing areas for dip netting. We appreciate their attention to security and quiet hours, the fish cleaning stations and the availability of showers. We were disappointed that the new shower facility was not well built, as we do like to use the showers since our own RV shower is used for storage. The new showers work just fine but they don't drain properly - the floors are not sloped right. So, we just used the old showers instead. We love the events and gatherings that the Ranch staff sponsors, it makes a nice family atmosphere. We appreciate the fire pits and picnic tables at each site, as we often sit around the fireside even in bad weather and prefer to eat outdoors. We have also used the dry camping pasture area, and while it's a little more rustic, it's still orderly and convenient for last minute folks. We've used the B&B rooms for extra guests before as well, it's very nice to have so many options for visitors. Also, there's plenty of space between RVs - I've seen some parks where the parking spots leave only a few feet between RVs, but we have plenty of room at Diamond M.

Dip Netting Season opens July 10 and goes through the end of the month. It is when Alaska residents can dip their winter supply of fish due to high numbers of sockeye salmon going up the Kenai River. The pasture is our overflow area for guests who are unable to meet the 5 day minimum during this peak time only, but who have at least a 3 day stay. Because this is a more open area, there is more space, but not everyone in the pasture gets a picnic table or fire ring.

The new bathrooms were hot off the press as we worked around the clock to have them ready for dip season. The shower rods in handicap bathrooms and shower thresholds did not arrive which caused a wet floor which collected all the sand from the outdoors as well. It was extremely difficult to keep clean. These issues have been fixed for the upcoming season.

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
