We have stayed here before, nothing has changed much except the rates went up. Not good value for a gravel parking lot with FHU's only, no amenities other than the older bath/showers & laundry. But, not much choice for RV's in Sonoma County & fairgrounds is centrally located. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

There are very few parks in the area and they are expensive, which makes this park a bargain. A no frills parking lot, it is centrally located with easy access and good big rig access. Even though it is not located in a very good part of town, we felt very comfortable there, even on New Year's Eve. It is quiet and relaxing. No cable or wifi but our satellite and verizon worked well. One piece of information is that they ask to see your insurance information upon registration. Given that everything else is so expensive and limited, we will stay here again when on family business. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy access to Sonoma wineries, Beaches and other tourist activities in the area.

This is not a destination park, but a convenient place to stay when visiting the Santa Rosa area. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy, but we never felt unsafe here and the location is very good for freeway access to all surrounding areas and downtown Santa Rosa. There was lots of room so we never felt crowded and it was very easy to access with our fifth wheel. More like a parking lot than a campground, but for what it was it was great. I would likely consider it if in the Santa Rosa area again. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an average, stopover rv park. No frills, no activities, basic parking lot for rigs. All gravel, good maneuvering space, sites roomy enough for popouts. Bathrooms are older, but kept clean. Close to major shopping. $35 for FHU only is a bit much. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Russian River, Napa wine country, San Francisco.

No frills flat gravel lot with hookups. Sites are fairly close together and a few have trees. Roadways are wide and it is easy to maneuver through the park. No wi-fi but ATT cell signal was good. No cable. The only area to walk dogs is over the gravel and around the fenced perimeter, although there is a park about a half mile from the campground. Not a vacation destination but convenient if you want to visit wine country and San Francisco is not that far away. We were on a tour with a group, so we didn't make arrangements or pay the park. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

An open gravel campground. Good hookups, newer pedestals, no amenities. Our rate reflects Passport America discount. We saw no evidence of a homeless encampment. Park was surprisingly full for a Saturday night off season. Quiet. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects PA for 1st night plus 3 nights at full $30/night rate. This CG could be a 9+ except for some minor nits plus 1 big issue. First, the positives. The sites are double width for large events where they cram them in. I would not want to be here then. During our stay, each rig had a double wide for itself. The utility pedestals are in good shape and set in concrete so everything is neat and tidy. The shade trees are neatly trimmed to avoid eating RV roofs and solar panels. The surface is large (~1/2 to 1 inch) gravel that doesn't track into the RV. The sites are canted, making it difficult to level without deploying blocks. They won't let you park facing the opposite direction. There's no grass anywhere. The bathrooms and showers are worn but clean except the moldy shower curtains. The laundry has good, clean washers and dryers. The primary host is a nice guy who seems to always be hustling around and getting things done. His underling is a major negative who needs a class on customer service. His first words to me, before I said a word, were, "That's the way it is. If you have to wait 10 minutes, so be it. I don't care." We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Great price for the area. The park is basic, We stayed here a few days and then stored our camper here while we took a cruise. Worked out great. Love the town of Santa Rosa, but then who wouldn't love the home of Charles M. Schulz and his Peanuts gang. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

A clean safe place to park overnight with hookups. That is not easy to find in the Santa Rosa area. I can't say much more than that. It really is nothing more than a gravel parking lot with hookups near the fairground. It is right off Highway 1, two exits over and they are very careful about security. No long-term residents (14 days maximum stay), no RVs older than ten years unless the camp host approves them, camp host on site 24/7, level sites, lots of room to maneuver the rig. We stayed here a few years ago and we came back because we have relatives in the area. It's safe. Its clean. If you want scenery go further north. if you need a stopover or have family in Santa Rosa it's perfect. $30 seems high for a gravel parking lot with no cable or Wi-Fi but for this part of California it's a bargain. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Travel Trailer.

Nothing special, but was clean and friendly. Has gravel level lots. Was a short walk/cab to town. The Russian River Brewery was our stop. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Easy to find, very friendly and helpful hosts and a great location for touring Sonoma, Napa, Bodega Bay, and other interesting things in the area. No cable or Wi-Fi, but satellite was clear. Will definitely stay here again. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Sonoma County Fairgrounds RV Park in Santa Rosa is a great place to stay overnight. For us it was just an overnight and wanted a safe place to stay. We have stayed here in October and will return. Check in is easy the staff is friendly and helpful. The gravel sites (the whole park is gravel) are clean and level all good size, all pull through, big rig friendly. Do have to drive some surface streets in and out, but not bad. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large gravel lot that is level with some shade trees. Utilities are placed correctly and worked fine even in 97 degree weather. It's close enough to go down to Frisco for the day. Overall this park is fine for a short stay. They do not have WI-FI. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

It is just a gravel parking lot, but worked for our needs. Convenient and the price was right. Would stay again if I had to be in the area. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

A county RV Park located close to downtown. Nothing fancy, all gravel, sites basically level, Wi-Fi not working during our stay, lots of sites for satellite, satisfactory site spacing, good utilities, only 2 washers & 2 dryers, but worked well. Would stay here again. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
