My wife found out about this campground on their Web site, and I camped there in August 2007.
Describe your camping trip:
This month was the third time my family camped at Sun Valley. We met some great people who camped in our area. We hung out at their site beyond quiet hours, and the owner came to ask us to break it up, so we did. We had such a great time we praised the place to our other group of campers. There are at least 14 of us. All of us went this August to NASCAR Fever Weekend. We got together and in fact a number of other campers joined in on our fun, nothing destructive, just fun. The owner came to our site using vulgar language and racial comments saying he has a hot spot and can do as he pleases. We talked about the issues at hand and resolved them. The owner's wife asked if we were going to reserve sites for 2008, and we stated that with such a large group we didn't feel comfortable being under the microscope, and we would talk it over with the group. In response to this, we were banned for life.
Pros: Great scenery and water falls.
Cons: The husband and wife owners. The husband, a hot head who thinks he rules the camping world, starts a situation and leaves his wife to iron things out. Then uses excuses that he works to much. The place is not managed when the owners leave, therefore not the most pleasant of rest rooms and quiet times not listed under park rules. Basically who wants to camp where. You never know when the owner is having a bad day.
I have been a camper for almost twenty years. I am fully aware of the inconveniences that can occur, but the enjoyment of my family and friends far outway any of these. This is a sorry situation. Maybe he should let his wife handle the campgrounds and just take a breather.
