We stayed here in December and the place is a big mud hole. Poor road and site maintenance cause this "park" to have dumpy appearance. This place could be a ten if they would clean it up and get some gravel and a grader in here! Bare sites too, bring your own table if you want one. Or, you can rent one for $10 per day. This place is way overpriced for what you get but they are the only "park" in the area. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Expect to self check when you get here. Just select your site, park and set up, then turn in the paperwork whenever they decide to open the office.

We were a little apprehensive about staying here because the park had not been reviewed in some time, but another pleasant surprise. We came in after a rain and there were a few puddles here and there, but the gravel sites were fairly level. They are quite long, but rather narrow. There was still more than enough space to maneuver into the sites. The bathrooms were kept clean and a code was needed for access. the site manager was there every day 8-5. The surroundings were very pleasant and very quiet at night. Considering it is a fairground, there were very few flies. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

This is our second year staying at the park while attending the Draft Horse Classic. It can be muddy in spots after a rain storm, but we will definitely be back again. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

All in all a great find. No Memorial Day weekend crowds. Pleasant experience. Quiet campground with a beautiful pond. Ducks and geese live at the pond, and look for the turtles! Kids under 12 can fish the pond too. Nearby amenities were plentiful. Great launching pad for Nevada City/Grass Valley exploring. Only negative is the $10 extra charge for a picnic table. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects power and water only site, perhaps a pre-season rate. Points only lost for grass, in the water/power area, not cut and not done in a long time. Also no picnic table or fire ring. Great CG otherwise. We came to the area for a rodeo and stayed an extra night just because the CG is so pleasant. Unexpected bonus was strong, fast Wi-Fi, no additional charge.

We stayed here for the Draft Horse Classic plus several extra days. Great place to use as a base for exploring the surrounding history of the area. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't let the other reviews scare you: this is a beautiful campground. We spent two nights there and loved it. Tall pine trees, Wi-Fi, dog friendly, great hostess, and all of this in a serene setting in Grass Valley. There was one pot hole that we saw in the park, and it was in our camp site. Roads were graded and smoothed out. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.

We LOVE this campground and have been here many times and will return again. Yes, it's dirt and gravel, but it is the most gorgeous setting in the pines. We had a level and large site with full hookups and plenty of room for our tow and outdoor seating. We were able to get satellite as we were not right under the trees but did get shade in the afternoon from the tall pines. I love walking my dog here. Plenty of room & the fairgrounds are open to the public too. VERY peace and quiet & good access to Hwy 20. Roads are dirt and gravel but maintained. We stayed a week & wish we could have stayed longer. Staff in the office was helpful and friendly. It's not fancy but very peaceful and a great price. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.

After reading some of the previous ratings, and after walking around the park, I wondered if I was at a different location! Perhaps the management has changed, but what I found was a park located in a meadow setting with a small irrigation canal and lake. There are a number of trees around so a camper has a choice of being in the sunshine or finding a shaded site. The restrooms and showers were older block construction (this is fairground property), but the showers and restrooms were clean, swept, and dry. Showers were free and upon check in each camper is given a lock combination for the facility. Parking is on gravel/dirt (remember this is a fairground parking lot!) but we found dried forest grass at our campsite. One can buy a newspaper at the park office but anything else can be obtained in town which is close. Good value for the money, easy access and this is a park we would come back to again. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stay here when we visit relatives in the area. It is the most beautiful fairgrounds, but very poorly maintained, which is a shame. The sites are not very level, and there are potholes everywhere. Wi-Fi is available, but very slow. There is no cable TV and satellite reception is impossible because of the trees. The staff is friendly, and this could be a lovely RV park if anyone would take an interest! We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our 2nd year in this park. Stayed 5 nights (to visit relatives in Grass Valley) and would have stayed longer except the campground was to be closed for an up-coming event. I would give it a '9' or '10' if the campsites were better maintained. The same ankle-busting pot-holes as a year ago, and remnants of someone's campfire on the grass (ashes and burnt debris) from who-knows-when. I didn't think campfires were even allowed in our spot: especially given the drought the trees have suffered in recent years. The fairgrounds are well-maintained and have a Disneyland appearance, so we can't understand why the campground appears to be somewhat neglected (trash, dog waste, pot-holes, etc.) We would definitely like to return in the future. It's a beautiful spot, with nice people working here. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This nice and friendly park, is surrounded by tall pine trees. There is a nice fish pond right next to the sites - I walked around it several times with my two preschoolers. Showers and restrooms are very basic but clean. Two showers+restroom buildings exist, one near the main office and one more remote, close to the "dry camping" (i.e. water and electricity but no sewage) area. The ones next to the office are fine. The other one is very old and has no hot water. We had a good time and will be happy to come again. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

Our second time staying here. Appears to be neglected, access roads had huge potholes, bath rooms were borderline clean, grass not mowed. WiFi good but slow (128kbps down/28kbps up). Great water pressure, good power. Very busy park with fairground events almost every weekend. No playground or kid items, no pool. There is a small pond where kids under 12 can fish. We camped at Nevada County Fairgrounds RV Park in a Motorhome.
