This is a wonderful, little park right on the shore of Kenai Lake. Their RV sites are a short walk from the lake and are all back in sites. We had no problems leveling our coach and the power and water were both stable through our 4 day stay. The RV sites don't have sewer hookups, but there is a convenient dump station nearby. This campground is exceptionally clean, quiet, and well cared for, and the staff is extremely helpful. The drive to Seward is about 20 minutes from the campground, through some wonderfully scenic country.

If you are planning to fish for Halibut in Ninilchik, AK this is a good place to stay. The sites were level, the power clean, and the water pressure was good. We had a back-in, full hookup, site which was roomy and had plenty of room for our 44 footer. The campground is full of fishing guides, mates, and other associated workers that provided for some interesting stories. Their sites were across the courtyard from ours and it seemed the owners tried to segregate them as much as possible from the road travelers. Although there was a lot of coming and going within the campground, the noise was almost non-existent. I think everyone was to tired from the days fishing to party and make noise. There is a fishing charter company associated with the campground and they offered a discount on their fishing trips for those staying in the campground. We found our stay comfortable, quiet, and clean, although you should not expect a resort atmosphere or amenities. This is a functional place to stay if you intend to fish the area.

We stayed 3 nights in Diamond M Ranch Resort while touring Kenai and Soldotna. Their "supersize pull-thru" sites are wonderful, especially if you are traveling with other rigs. Four large rigs can share a grassy courtyard with tables and a large fire pit. On Saturday evening, the owners hosted a pot luck dinner on their observation deck. They provided 3 kinds of salmon for their guests. And, while on the observation deck we got a good look at a bald eagle nest with 2 eaglets that were being coaxed out of the nest by their parents. Caribou and moose can also be seen regularly from the deck. The sites are level, water pressure and electrical are some of the best we've experienced in Alaska, and most sites have a couple of sewer hookups, which makes it easy to hook up to the sewer no matter where your dumps are located on your rig. If you are into fishing, this is a great place to stay. The campground has two fish cleaning stations where you can clean your catch for dinner. Shopping is close by, in Kenai or Soldotna, and the area has several nice restaurants, service facilities, and a Walmart. We will stay here again, when in the area, just because of the wonderful owners and staff.

We read one of the reviews about this not being a dog friendly park but decided to stay here for a week anyway, since online this looked like the best place to spend our time. Boy are we glad we did! There was absolutely nothing about this park that we found to be objectionable. The park is spotless, the staff is great, friendly, and efficient. They do have a grassy area which is off limits to dogs, but we are willing to take our dogs for their walks on the well kept trails and save the grassy area for folk that do not want to have to "watch their step". While walking the trails we noticed several places where dog owners refused to pick up after their animals and I would not want to see that in the park's very nice grassy patch. We were completely happy with the everything about this park and have put this on our "favorites" list. We will definitely be back.

The posts about a steep climb into the park are correct. But that climb is no more steep than several of the roads taken to get here. The campground is clean, the sites level, and the campground is quiet. The staff is very friendly and quite helpful. Our only complaint was that we could not use our roof mounted satellite dish nor our mobile dish because of the surrounding trees. We spent the 4th of July week here and loved all of the celebratory activities the staff had planned. We will definitely stay here again on our way back to Florida

Stayed here in the fall of 2013 and the park was very nice then. Now there have been many improvements making the park one of the best I've experienced. Paved roads and concrete pads with designated, paved parking area for your vehicle. Office staff is excellent who where great, going out of their way to accommodate our needs. The ground keepers also were friendly and spoke highly of ownership's efforts to improve and expand. Landscaping is well maintained and being continued on the new sites. Internet connection was good so I used the facility WiFi. My husband used our MiFi. There are trains nearby, but it wasn't a negative for me, I love trains. I would stay here again and have already been recommending it to friends who are meeting us here in a couple of days. If you're in the area, you should check it out.
