John and Teresa Shine purchased the KV Bar Ranch in 2014. Junipers Reservoir RV Resort is located at the end of a one mile gravel driveway in the middle of the KV Bar Ranch. John’s family has deep roots in Lake County and at the Ranch. The KV Bar Ranch was originally operated by and named after John’s great uncle and John’s grandfather (Francis Kavanaugh Verling), who came over from Ireland in the early 1900’s. The KV part of the brand stands for Kavanaugh Verling. They ended up selling the KV Bar Ranch in the 1940’s. John and Teresa had the opportunity to bring the ranch back into the family again 60 years later. John, his brother George Shine, and George’s wife Robin currently run cattle on the KV Bar Ranch.
Along with this new and improved website, we are adding online reservations and will also start taking credit cards this season. When making reservations either online or by phone, we will be requiring a credit card number and a deposit will be taken. An Oregon lodging tax fee of 1% will be added to your total. We will also be working to upgrade and improve the RV resort to make your stay more pleasant. We want you to enjoy your stay and to come back again and again. The back portion of the ranch tour road will be closed to vehicles this season. However, you will still be able to drive all the way to Wildcat creek and to the ancient Indian campgrounds at the end of the reservoir. The entire ranch tour road will be open to hikers and mountain bikers.
Daytime temperatures average about 70 to 80 degrees during the summer. We enjoy balmy days and cool evenings. At an altitude of almost 5,000 feet, the temperature quickly drops about 15 to 20 degrees as the sun sets.
