6 Comments on “Sunset Union Valley Reservoir”

  1. I would like to know where you got the map of the Sunset-Union Valley campground that you have posted on your site? How old is it? It shows different numbers than the campground had last year and now I’m confused.

  2. Sherrie Davies says:

    What is the difference between the RV sites and the general sites? None have water or power, so aren’t they all the same with overall length being the only difference?

    • Hi Sherrie,

      Good question! There are three RV only campsites (24, 26 and 100), 30 tent-only sites and the others can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs.  “Standard” sites include the tent only and other sites (for tents, trailers and RVs). As you pointed out, none have hookups. Hope this answers your question.
