Super nice owners. Very clean campground and well kept. Sites might be a little close but it was never a problem. A good bit of long term rentals but none that looked like permanent residents. Just local folks using it for the weekends.

You have to walk your trash to the corner of the back lot to place it in the dumpster. but the CG is in bear country so who wants their trash in the campground. We stopped for a night when passing thru and ended up staying 4 nights.

Salida is a fun town with tons of restaurants, bars, art galleries and antique shops. Plenty to do in the area. Lots of back country roads to explore. We plan to return in September if we can. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

Plan to spend some time in Salida. Also, it's only an hour to Montrose, Black Canyon and Royal Gorge. Lot's of stuff to do in the area.

This was our second time staying at Pleasant Valley RV Park in Howard. We had a waterfront site and yes your neighbors our close, but you have a concrete pad for picnic table and green grass. The site we had was beautiful as there was a view of the river and the mountains from our site. Did not hook up the satellite, because of the trees it may be hard in some of the sites to get reception. The laundry room is always clean and very reasonable. The staff is awesome, and you are led to your site and assisted with backing in to the site. There are a lot of repeat campers here and some have left their units there, but they are like a family and will invite you to their potluck. My favorite place when I need to veg and relax. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

Salida and Buena Vista are in easy driving distance. Rafting and fly fishing in the area. There is a WalMart in Salida for groceries.

I would have given this campground a 10 except the water and electric hookup for our site #7 was on the wrong side. However, I loved the site as it had more space compared to other sites and it was a waterfront site. Staff friendly and helpful. As others have mentioned there are many seasonal campers and locals who leave their campers. Wi-Fi was great! My Verizon PC Card did not work there except for one night. AT&T cell coverage good. We were able to get Satellite TV at the site. The only downside is location, as it's a 20 to 25 minute drive to Salida. Compared to other campgrounds in the area it's the best we found. We would camp here again. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

We were welcomed by a very friendly staff/owner. Nice pull-through space, good Wi-Fi. Cell phone reception is spotty for Verizon but usable. Less expensive than staying in Salida and more trees. Lots of full-timers just leave their units here for the winter but there were plenty of transient spots available. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

I feel that previous reviews were over-rating this place. We felt like this park was very close and crowded except if you were on the river front row. Our site was dirt but level with a concrete patio. Picnic table was smaller than normal. Some highway noise during day, then quiet at night. Lots of big shade trees. Most guests are here for the season or leave their RVs here year around and use them on the weekends. Owner was not very friendly. We would stay again only if we could get a river front site.

Second best RV park we ever stayed in. River front sites allow you to listen to the flowing water all night long. The park is very well maintained by polite and respectful people. Has social events on most days. There is a crowd that comes back every summer, and know each other well. Only one negative: WiFi was not consistently available, and weak when present. Bandwidth problems prevented an entertainment download more than once. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

This a a very clean and well maintained campground. The sites are close together, but each has a concrete picnic area and a grassy little lawn. The sites that back up to the Arkansas River are very nice. The Wi-Fi and satellite availability is very good, however, Verizon Cell service just doesn't work here. They have strict rules about dogs, but it is reasonable. There is a nice forest service road nearby that is a great hiking/dog walking place. The staff is friendly and accommodating. No credit cards though!!! A find!!! We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

This is the second time we've stayed here and we love it! This park is in Howard, not Salida. (About 15 minutes away, scenic drive either direction with plenty of road-side, river stops for fishing, wading, etc.) The sites are a little close but the park is very clean and the owners are fantastic! Nice get-togethers during the weekend (ie: pot-luck dinners with wonderful food, Christmas in July, etc.) Nice river sites (most are back-in) and plenty of non-river sites that are pull-throughs and shaded. Strong internet signal was not as fast as we would like but usable. Although close to the highway, we could hardly hear the road noise due to the sounds of the Arkansas River. Extremely relaxing. We plan on staying again in this pet-friendly RV Park! We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.

The staff are awesome and park every camper personally. Great potlucks and games on the weekends, great fun. We are going back this year for longer. The river is very relaxing. It's only a short drive to Salida for supplies like baits, lures etc. ATV rentals and national forest access nearby. Loved it. We camped at Pleasant Valley RV Park of Howard in a Travel Trailer.
