Great park and quiet off from Hwy 50. Lots of folks come there and stay for 5 months. Friendly and campground is clean. They have campfires with smores on weekends. Sometimes the rec hall has events. We found it a good location for driving to Salida and Royal Gorge and Canon City. No Verizon but there is ATT at the campground. We had no problems parking. Plenty of space between rigs and has cement pad with grass. We would stay here again. They are new owners and are working very hard to please. WiFi worked great. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet park, pretty setting among mountains and set along the Arkansas River. Sites and interior roads all dirt and many are unlevel front to back, but it was nice to have a little cement pad with patio table. No Verizon cell, no cable. Wi-Fi was OK for checking email. Fishing access in the park is limited to one spot; banks are steep and most of river is inaccessible. There’s nothing much in Howard and in this area but it’s 20 minutes to Salida along the winding but pretty Hwy 50 where there are amenities and shopping. There are many permanents but all have nice rigs, their sites are tidy and the park is clean. There is one bathroom for women and one for men with shower, sink, toilet in one room so it can be used by one person at a time, but always very clean. It’s not for us, but would definitely recommend this park for those looking for a peaceful spot in a beautiful area of the country. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Fifth Wheel.

A new owner, but very friendly and helpful. A great park to sit/lay back and recharge your batteries. The Arkansas River flows by with deer almost every day in the area. They are working on cell phone service. Great spaces with grass to walk on and enjoy life. My 37.5 foot 5th wheel can fit in any space. The closest town is Salida, CO. and is about 12 miles to the west. I would tell everybody to stop by and enjoy the stay. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Fifth Wheel.

Pleasant Valley is a GREAT RV park. The only thing that keeps it from being a 10 is that there is no cable. The temp. is great with a nice afternoon cloud cover that really keeps it cool. The staff and RVers are friendly and always have something going on. Your just a few steps from the Arkansas River which is a real plus for the fishermen. I'm thinking about coming back next year and staying for a month or two. I would tell any and everybody that this is a great park with a great location. If ya have kids, you might wanna keep on traveling. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Fifth Wheel.

GREAT, GREAT: the only thing missing is a pool. But there is the Arkansas River flowing by the sites. Combination Colorado desert-like setting with lush green grass between sites and snowcapped mountains around. Sites are offset for more privacy. Staff and park residents could not be friendlier. A small park with views of snow covered mountains in June. We would come back in a heartbeat. WiFi is excellent and free. No TV unless you have a satellite dish though: but we didn't miss it viewing/listening to the Arkansas River flow through with rafters, canoes. They have this place well landscaped with a western flair. Great place to stay on our way to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Actually located in Howard though, but Salida just down the road. Wish we had time for more than two days here. Refreshing!! We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is along the Arkansas River - really nice and so well kept. The people are all so very friendly. There are many full-time residents there, with only one row of sites available to 'transients.' One would not know there were permanent folks in the park. There is a waiting list for those permanent sites - only upon ones death, do they change hands. We would like to return there. I highly recommend it.
