Lots of RV parks have "ranch" in their name, and probably have some décor or landscaping that give it that "feel".
Junipers Reservoir RV Park at KV Ranch is a real working ranch. The dirt road back to the sites passes the hay barns, the working arena, the loading chutes - ranch stuff. Black angus cattle dot the hills and pastures in all directions. Ranchers move them from one area to another with horses and ATVs. Cattle dogs rest on the top of pickups with ropes and coolers in the back.

All sites have FHUs, 30 or 50 AMP. Several pull-throughs with back-ins along the back row. Nice cottonwood trees provide minimal shade, we had to move forward to find satellite. Really good park WiFi in our space 33. And it's a Passport America park so our cost is $16.50/night. Best deal we've had in three months!

I love it here and had hoped there would be good fishing with multiple lakes nearby, plus the reservoir on the ranch.
The reservoir is at about 1/3 capacity, we've seen one fishing boat in the low water. Not an option for shore fishing.
We didn't bother looking for other water, knowing the results would be more depressing. The predicted below-normal precipitation for next winter could completely change this area for years to come.
So instead we just hung out enjoying the rustle of the cottonwood leaves in the nice breeze, watched a couple hawks and a coyote challenging each other for a meal, laughed at the noisy cows complaining about being moved all the time, enjoyed the prong horns along the park road, and got some chores done around home.
We would definitely stay here again, especially when the lakes are restored (which I have to believe will happen). Even with the high winds on Friday that made us bring in the big slide for the first time, this is a wonderful place to spend a few days or more.
