We live in the area and stayed here for a couple of weeks while we had to be out of our house due to a remodel. It is a typical fairgrounds-type RV park. Big rig friendly, FHU with over the air TV. I never got the wifi to work but we were a long way from the tower. Both gravel and paved sites . We stayed on the gravel side which was fine. There is a max of 30 days and then you have to leave for 30 days. Only vendors are allowed during the state and county fairs. Not a destination park by any stretch but very convenient with easy access to attractions in and around the Sacramento area. Cal Expo Security patrols the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

GPS takes you to Cal Expo, park is at the end of Ethan. Pavement spots are on a hill, gravel spots are level. Lots of restaurants nearby, grocery a mile or so away. Relatively quiet, tires on gravel noticeable. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

As others have said, it is just basically a parking lot--either asphalt or gravel, depending on what site you are assigned. However, it is easy in and out, and decently priced for a campground in the heart of the city. We stayed here because we needed a campground near a maintenance shop we were visiting the next day, and this fit the bill. Big-rig friendly, and full hookups. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The host recommended we take a family bike ride to historic Old Sacramento on the American River Bike Trail just by the campground. While the trail is beautiful near the campground, I do NOT recommend riding in to Old Sac. Just past the bridge, it becomes tent city. The trash, drugs, excrement, arrests, and some not-so-friendly people were not what we wanted to expose our kids to. We even saw a chalk body-outline. However, if you go left from the campground on the trail, the trail is safe.

The daily rate is based on what we paid for a 2 week stay. As someone else pointed out, there are 2 sides to the park, a paved side and a gravel side. We ended on the gravel side, which is apparently the side reserved for the big rigs that need 50 amps. The sites are only marked by the electric meter box, with nothing showing any type of boundary for the front or rear of the site. Locating the connections was easy and for the most part, easy to get connected. There was a little bit of a problem with the sewer connection, as the hole is sunk into a concrete pad, making it a little difficult to get the sewer elbow to stay in the hole. Our AT&T cell phones and hot spot worked well. Their Wi-Fi worked well, as did our OTA and satellite TV. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

Had a flat, level, gravel, pull through spot. Total length was about 70 feet. The staff was very friendly and helpful providing directions to save time driving to a club Christmas Dinner. The gravel was packed down and as long as people drove slow, I saw no dust. There is a decent, fenced in dog park with three trees, grass and dirt plus a pooper scooper. Good place to spend a night or two. Heard a few trains, but not a major issue. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

One should be aware that this park has two choices a gravel parking lot or a paved parking lot. We arrived late in the day dues to poor directions on the parks web site. (should have followed my GPS). Made res for a 50 amp site but were give a 30. Had to wait to the next day to get it corrected. No tables to use for anything. Paved part where we were at has a down hill slant and reguired full extension of landing leg to level trailer. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I was in the gravel lot which was very dusty. Sites are somewhat close but usable. There is a nice paved area but the sites are small the lot is way off level. There are not many choices in this area so it's as good as it gets here. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

The staff is AWESOME!! Staff called us back several times to coordinate the availability of the correct space to accommodate my wife's disability. We needed a level spot so the step into the motorhome was minimal. The site was pretty quiet for being in town and the fair just ending. It is walking/wheelchair distance to shopping and dining. The downside is that there were only 2 working washing machines. Other than that, this place was a GREAT stay. Good staff, good neighbors, and reasonable price.

We stayed four nights here. We we're over on the flat gravel area. Most rigs around us were also motorhomes. Very quite day and night. Saw security drive though quite often at night. Old Sacramento is only about five miles away. Lots of shopping within minutes from here. Easy to get into and out off. I did notice the paved area wasn't level. Those were also more for rigs under 35' or so. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

Two areas: one paved the other dirt. We stayed in the dirt part, which was spacious, because they only use one of two spaces; otherwise it would be intolerable. For access to downtown Sacramento, including hospitals, this is the place. Convenient to restaurants and to downtown via city streets. If in the area again, we will stay here because there is no place better. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here twice using it as an overnight stop. While a bit out of the way from I-5, it worked well for us. Ask for directions as GPS does not take you to the rv park. Half the campground is paved but did not look level and had smaller sites. The other half is gravel with much larger sites. Our 38 ft Fifth Wheel, HDT and Jeep fit with room to spare. There is an extra vehicle fee if you do not fit in your space but would be a rare occurrence on the gravel side. Sites are marked by the pedestal only, no grass, no picnic tables. Not fancy but just fine. The only negative was the bright street lights and some dust from the faster drivers. Verizon phone and 4g worked well, shopping close by. We plan to camp here again if driving I-5. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cal Expo RV Park, Sacramento, CA $40 This park is huge with site numbers going up to 538 but starting with 100. While we were there 40 RV's rolled in for the weekend. It is on the property of the Cal Expo. This is where the CA State Fair takes place for twelve days. On the property there is also a big gym, soccer fields, racing track, grandstand, water park and bike trails. While we were there a volleyball tournament was going on. There are hookups, showers, dog park, 24 hour security, free Wi-Fi and a laundry room. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

The American River Bike Trail goes by the park for 30 miles. What a great trail it is. The park is located about ten minutes from downtown Sacramento.

I stayed here for 30 days while working in Sacramento. The location was perfect and its proximity to the American River Bike Trail makes this a fabulous location for morning and evening recreation. The hosts are great, providing helpful tips without being the least bit intrusive. I felt like my rig, belongings and self were safe at this park. I was sorry to leave, but will return whenever I can. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Asphalt sites, needed some leveling. No grass or picnic table, however they have a dog run. A few sites had shade. Full hook ups, but be sure and ask for type of electricity you want (30amp, 50amp) as sites have different options available. Restrooms need a key with a $20 deposit. Staff was friendly and helpful. I used antenna TV which was satisfactory. I couldn't get my computer to access the Wi-Fi, so maybe my problem not theirs? We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
