General Description: Peaceful Valley Campground is located in the Minnesota River Valley between Mankato and Minneapolis along US 169. The campground has 32 sites, 15 with full hookups and 17 with water and electric hookups. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Amenities include an outdoor pool, a small camp store, playgrounds, bathroom/shower, and laundry facilities. Free WiFi is available throughout the campgrounds.
1) As the name implies, Peaceful Valley Campground is a small campground in the lovely Minnesota River Valley far enough away from busy US 169 to be quiet. The campground is small to begin with and since over half of the sites are filled with seasonal campers, there are only about 10 for transient visitors. All of the sites are back-in with grass, so heavy rains can make it difficult to get your RV into and out of the site. They really need to create gravel pads that are compacted instead of grass.
2) Since the campground is in a valley the phone reception is very poor and TV reception with an antennae only after dark. However, the WiFi is phenomenal! They have a fiber optic connection into the campground and enough high speed repeaters to provide the best service we have found anywhere. For the first time we were able to stream TV shows through our computer to the TV to at least watch some news.
3) The bathroom facilities are dated, but clean and conveniently located near the transient sites. The owners were extremely friendly and stopped by multiple times to chat.
