Then and Now

Evelyn Foltz

In 1958 Evelyn Foltz (Pictured to the left) started Pride Valley Campgrounds. In a 1975 newspaper interview, Evelyn said "I put everything I had into the place", and "had determination to make this go". She also said this (Pride Valley) was "a place to take a camper and just sit back and enjoy the outdoors." At any time of the year it's common to see deer, fox, wild turkeys, and various other wildlife here at the spacious 500 acre paradise known as Pride Valley.

Now owned and operated by Evelyns daughter (Norma Colley) and grand-daughter (Lisa Colley-Merchlandbise), Pride Valley pushes on into the future with newly renovated electric service, as well as water and sewer hook-ups. The office (formerly the lodge), has been remodeled and improvements are continuously being made to the property which offers daily, weekly,monthly as well as seasonal rates, all include fishing and swimming.
