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.

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.
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.

Excellent. Well maintained park. Owners very friendly and helpful. Have put new electric service into sites to accommodate current electric needs of today's RVs. 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.

All right for an over night stop based on price paid. It would be nice if they would add Wi-Fi. Our pull through was under a tree, so no satellite. Other sites where in the open. We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night passing through Ohio. Easy access from the highway. Staff was friendly. Well kept grounds. Both water pressure and power were good. Power measured 120 volts with AC running. After a long day driving, it was a very pleasant overnight. Would stay here again. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Great for one night traveling. Swimming pond needed weeds cleaned out, but we were able to let the dog swim as long as she didn't bother any kids. Pretty view of the valley. Good Sam rate. We would stay again. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground advertises that it is open year around. We camped here at the end of December and beginning of January. Owner was impossible to find when we wanted to pay her for additional nights and did not answer phone calls. Although the campground was quiet and fairly clean, there was no laundry, no restrooms open, no water, no computer hookup as the office was always closed and locked. We have also stayed here in the summer when restrooms are open, but office is still closed most of the time and the "swimming" pond is slimy. Overall, we find the owner/manager a poor camp host. Expect to pay extra for everything from ac to heat, water, and day visitors. We would only stay here again if all other options were ruled out. We camped at Sun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

TL rates this CG as 5.5/8.5/8.5 and that is probably exactly right. There are very few amenities: no WIFI, no store, no large, noisy play area, no swimming pool (they do have a small pond for swimming)and no shopping in the immediate area. The crowds will be kept down due to the above - very nice for what we're looking for. There is an attached trailer park - beyond the owners home and of the 45 sites, probably 25 of them are seasonals. Normally, we would keep away from this place, but it was too pleasant, too quiet, too peaceful - looking over the huge lawn and across the Sun Valley Pond across the road. Lots of ducks and lots of quiet - exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely return to this place - a nice place for the week end - a quick get away, if you are looking for solitude.
