Comfortable affordable place to stay on edge of town. Sites are spacious; 10 or 15' of grass beyond your patio to the next site. Same owners for 25 years. Rate reflected an end of season cash price. Back-in site with very wide road, and room to park toad in front of motorhome. Pad was maintained and level. Plumbing hookups well located, electrical behind the pad. A few mobile homes on park behind. Quiet, enjoyable stay. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great park that is easy to get into with wide streets for easy parking. Large level sites with well located utilities. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. Clean laundry with good rates. I wish all parks were so user friendly. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the nicest, cleanest RV park in town with the largest spaces. The owners are very helpful and nice. Most spaces are very level, long and wide and many have large, mature trees. There are also open spaces with smaller trees or shrubs. We didn't have to level our 30' trailer at all. We will certainly stay here again. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Good sized sites, dirty granite sites, very friendly staff, older but good utilities, good Verizon, close to town, quiet, lots of yearly regulars, if you want a resort type place this is not it but if you want a place to explore from it's great. No gym or activities, easy to miss when driving down the highway. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

We thought this park was excellent - very spacious level site , clean cheap laundry, decent wifi, and nice location. Didn't give it higher because it's an RV park and not in the middle of nature. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in spot 30. One of 2 pull throughs in the back of the park. The spot was plenty deep for just about any MH with a toad. The owners are very nice, helpful people. They even trimmed a tree for us. Great views from the park. Roads are dirt but not rough. Full hook ups are placed well and a nice concrete pad with picnic table provided. AT&T has three bars here. Park wifi worked well and was plenty fast. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older mobile home park so spaces are large and well cared for. The owners were very helpful with both parking and information about the area. No real dog area but lots of walking behind the park just make sure to be a good owner and pickup after your pet. Reserve early the park was full. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

This rv park was originally a mobile home park and, as such, has some still in place. But not an issue at all. And yes, it is older (but so are we!) It is not lavish with amenities but we knew that going in - that is not high on our list of importance. We had a large site with nice views. You cannot meet nicer people than Sandra and Don; no place. Example. DW Barbara happened to mention to Sandra that she crochets as we drive - blankets for babies at a care center for very unfortunate babies. Sandra happened to be at a church yard sale and saw a bunch of yarn and bought it and gave it to Barbara - and refused to take a penny for it. We would go back there in a heartbeat. And hope we can. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an established park, and is a blend of permanent trailers and RV's. The park was clean and the sites were comfortable. The gravel pads had a concrete picnic area next to the pad. The park has been there long enough it needs a good purging. In many places there were old picnic tables, benches, and items that just needed to be hauled off. In the front of the park, there was an interesting little area surrounded by a white clapboard fence about 36" high. When I walked over and looked in it, I was surprised to see it full of 50 gallon barrels, old tools and other items - essentially junk. The WIFI was through an outside provider and was excellent. Many of the short-term parking pads are in the front, very close to the highway, and quite noisy. I strongly suggest negotiating the specific pad when making a reservation to be away from the road. The rate was based on a one week stay and a cash discount. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet, peaceful and well maintained. Price was for 50/30 amp, water, and sewer. There was no cable. Water pressure was 40 PSI and the sewer connector is not threaded; it's a drop in. There are a limited number of pull-through sites. There were picnic tables, but no pool, playground, or fire rings. The park was mowed and there were Chinese elm and cottonwood shade trees. Each site had a small patch of grass that was watered and mowed and a concrete patio. We only found 3 PBS channels on over-the-air using an antenna. Chaffee County's other six broadcast analog translator television channels went off the air on April 1, 2014 due to the Federal government-mandated 2015 deadline to go digital. The Chaffee County TV Translator Association didn't enjoy the Federal funding that the PBS stations have. AT&T phone service was 5 out of 5 bars; Verizon was 3 out of 5 bars. There was no trash pickup at the sites. We saw Fedex make deliveries to campers on 3 separate occasions. The Wi-Fi was upgraded to TengoInternet and was included in the camping rate. Wi-Fi strength and response were excellent, and we were even able to download 2 minute videos from Youtube with minimal buffering. Washers are one dollar and dryers are one dollar for an hour. The washers are Kenmore Heavy Duty and are a large size. Looks like there were long term residents in 9 park models. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nightly rate is based on monthly rate and 10% discount for paying cash or check. The sites are gravel and very wide. There is a picnic table on a concrete slab. The hook ups are easily accessible. WiFi is great and the atmosphere there is wonderful. Many of the people there are retired and come and stay the whole summer. They have pot luck dinners & cook outs often and some have planned activities once a week. We enjoyed our stay there and plan on returning next year. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a well-managed park. The sites are level easy to get into; all the hookups function well. The WiFi is the best I have ever had in an RV park. Many of the patrons of this park spend the summer here. The park is a convenient distance from town. The rate reflects the weekly rate with a 10% cash discount in the busy season. We would stay here again. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great park, huge level sites. Great owners, friendly and helpful. Many returning RVers, but very friendly. Great laundry, $1.00 per wash and dry! Where do you find that these days? Plenty of clothes lines if you wish to hang your clothes out. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to stay. Large sites with plenty of room to enjoy the site with table and plenty of room for the slide outs and awnings. Great views of the mountains. The owners are friendly and helpful a real plus to the park. It is an older park but very well maintained and utilities were very good. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.
