This is a very well kept park. It is about 2 miles off of 35, but the sign is a little small and could be easy to miss. Use your GPS with the street address and it will get you to the entrance. Paved roads into the park and gravel roads within the park. Most of the sites are long term, but they are all well kept and clean. The sites are wide enough with water, electric and sewer in most sites. They also have grass sites with 30 amp and water. I would stay here again. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Visit the Hopewell Culture National Historic Park. They also have Tecumseh Outdoor Historical Drama that looked good, but due to rain, I was not able to attend.

This park is just what we needed for an overnight. It is clean and the staff was friendly. Unlike other reviewers we had no issue checking in at 7:30 PM - staff was in office. There are a few funky things - our site was a pull-through but it is a double site. 55/56. We were assured we'd not have anyone on the other half! The site was easy in and really easy to get out.

Many campers look as if they are here for the season but all were friendly.

We couldn't get a line of site for DTV due to trees, but the OTA signal was excellent so fine for a night. WIFI was also EXCELLENT. How many times do we get to say that? We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Take the County Road 550 exit off US-35, about 6 miles west of Chillicothe and follow the blue "camping" signs. You buy your site "ala carte" depending on what utilities you need, starting at $25/night. No credit cards accepted, use cash or personal check. Cheerful, helpful staff. Entrance road is asphalt, interior roads asphalt and gravel. Trees line the roads so big rigs be careful, some tight turns around trees. No overhead obstacles. Many sites are owned or leased by long-term campers who "rent" their sites to transients. Sites are wide, mostly gravel, back-in with narrow roads. Nice landscaping, level sites with pedestals near the rear so have long or multiple stinky-tubes and water hoses. Fires permitted in selected sites and firewood is available for purchase. Water pressure and taste were good. No office store. No propane sales. Playground. No pool or spa. Free Wi-Fi. Verizon coverage at "1 bar". No recycling bins. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Chillicothe (means "Principle City" in Shawnee) about 6 miles east. Old town has quaint, local eateries (try the Smoke House on Water Street), shops, and churches. The next exit (route 159) has Walmart, Lowes, Kroger (and Starbucks) groceries, fast food, gas and diesel at $2.359. The Hopewell Culture National Historical Park is 2 miles north on route 104 (western most Chillicothe exit), a National Park Service facility (no admission fee), a Native American "mound builder" historical site.

This is a perfect one-night stopover. The park is clean and well managed with a friendly staff. The sites are level gravel. Hookups are at the back of the site so park accordingly. They accept cash or check. No credit cards. We stayed here last year on our trek to Custer SD and we will again. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Check in was a bit of challenge. We'd called on the way to make sure we could get a site - yes we could and told the office we'd be in about 5:30. We were told if there isn't anyone in the office call. We got there at 5:25 and called. It took a couple of minutes for the person to come get us but they did. Note: this is a cash only park.

The site we were assigned was gravel but easy enough to level our coach on. Hook ups were easily accessed.

Overall: Sun Valley was easy to find - fairly priced. Restrooms were adequate but just adequate. Lots of bare wood very open layout. Some turns were a bit tight. This was okay for an overnight with a pretty view of a local lake. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night on our way through. The staff was nice once we found them to check in (we had to find their trailer when no one would answer the phone). The grounds were clean and nice-looking, but the campground road had a tight corner for our 42 foot rig. Our site was level, but we had to keep moving back and forth in the site until we found just the right place where none of our slides would hit tree branches when extended. Good Sam had rated the bathrooms 9 out of 10, so we were surprised to find the women's bathhouse a very poorly lit room with two showers. The walls between the showers were only shoulder high, and you had to exit them to dress in a common dressing area. There was peeling paint, almost no ventilation, and plenty of bugs and spiders. The windows to the dressing room were open to try and help with ventilation, but their height made it so you could see into the dressing area from outside the building. The side of the room with the toilets was much cleaner, although still rather dark. The sink area was extremely clean and they had music playing. The kids loved the playground. We stayed here in a fifth wheel. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We found this park after a frustrating encounter with two other parks that had restrictions which were not advertised. This park is nice, especially, it seems, for locals, and very easy to find. Plenty of kids playing and family gatherings all around. Our site was not exactly level, but it was OK for one night. The price reflected a Good Sam discount, but they only accept cash or a personal check. That could be a problem at times. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped here with a group. Most of us parked in the field with water/electric (and no cable). A few used the FHU sites. Understand previous reviewers comments about trees, as several of our group encountered them with their campers when the CG personnel asked them to 'scoot over' a few feet. Main word of advice...see where you're going to park and do what you feel is best. The woman parking us didn't seem to understand where/what we needed in size and location and getting set up, then being told to move, is incredibly annoying. Clean park, convenient to Chiillicothe's tourist sites. Several of us also had electric issues which repeatedly tripped surge protectors. Would also recommend you have one. Big outdoor light on pole outside my camper went on and off all night. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here 2 nights with full hookups and a week later stayed in a water/electric site for 2 nights. This is a well maintained campground. It has mostly seasonal campers, but has 5 full hookup sites, and many water/electric sites. No problem dropping in and getting a water/electric site. But, if you want full hookups, you should call for a reservation. It has a playground for the kids, and a game room, and ample driveways for walking. They have a swimming area in a small pond, but it is sort of weedy, and I wouldn't call it much of a swimming area. The reason for rating it an 8 is the lack of privacy in the showers. The shower facilities are 1960's era. The men's and women's showers consist of two showers each with shoulder high separator wall between them, and a group dressing area. Not very private. Shower areas are at one end of the men and women's restrooms, with only half high doors separating them. We will stay here again when in the area. It is convenient to tourist areas near Chillicothe. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

People are nice and attendant is very good. Park is small with too many trees to dodge with big units. Lots of low limbs to watch for. They need to get rid of trees, not plant more. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

As a base camp for adult campers, it served our purpose. Spots were level with easy access. Could use a few shade trees. It was adequate. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Such a quaint, small campground. Oh, so very friendly Permies. We had many campers stop by or invite us to "sit a spell". Close to town and local attractions. Due to the lack on rain in Ohio, the swimming pond was non-accessable, but would have been nice other wise. This has been placed on our re-visit list. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice playground. Great staff. Internet access is good. We liked this campground as an overnighter, but it might be remote if you are looking for easy access to local activities. Would stay here again! We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.
