We were solicited for membership and decided to give this place a try. From the time we arrived to the time we left, nothing we had discussed on the phone was true and the staff was very rude!! We would have legitimaly pursued a membership if we had been treated decently ! Do NOT recommend this place !!

What can I say?? The park is in great condition. The cottage we stayed in is the size of a houseboat but enough space for 4 adults. Had 1 queen bed in private bedroom, bunk beds in middle & futon in front room! Bring a mattress topper or blow up bed due to futon not so comfortable to sleep on.... More

This is a member only resort and we are members having joined at Emerald Cove Resort. This was our first visit. We arrived around noon and we greeted at the entrance and quickly assigned the last pull through site. Most sites looked fairly level, but ours was pretty sloped. It was a busy weekend and plenty of families around. There... More

This was one of the best RV Parks we've ever stayed out. Love the activities including the wine and cheese tasting. And the woman working the gate helped us to find a space that allowed us to view the sunset and all the way down to the ocean .

Love KQ Ranch Resort! I bought the membership package about three months ago. I've already camped here once and heading up again for the 4th of July weekend with my grandsons. It's so peaceful and quiet up there. You can see wild turkeys running around the grounds and at night hear the wolves howling from the nearby wolf preserve. Plus... More

We camped in our class C RV for 3 weeks in May. We were there a little before the spring season was in full swing. The staff was using a weed wacker, mowing and reading the pool for the upcoming season opening. The restrooms are clean and well maintained. Our RV spot was clean and the view was spectacular.

We love going to KQ ranch. On weekends they plan a lot of family activities. There is so much to do. The sites are and restrooms are immaculate. We try to make it about once a month to this resort and if we lived closer we'd make it more often! They have miniature golf, frisbee golf, pool, jacuzzi, tennis, horseshoes!... More
