This could be a convenient location for the sights and wineries of Sonoma County, close to downtown Santa Rosa. Site was level and utilities all in good order. That's the good.

A number of permanent residents, with multiple vehicles and trash bags/junk piled in the vehicles. Some are neat, others not. Pickup truck with trash bags overflowing and above roof line; the related motorhome had similar in front seats, filling front window. "Rules" are not enforced (site next to us had sewer hose dropped on ground and emptying into open drain- no end connection (park management and staff walked next to this several times and did nothing). The neighborhood is OK (who wants to live next to the fairgrounds), but no problems whatever walking to nearby park etc.

There is no WiFi available. Nothing fancy--level sites on gravel, laundry with two washers and dryers, decent room between sites, a few sites with a tree or two between. Sites just wide enough to put out side awning to site line. Nor a place to enjoy sitting outside. Some sites have picnic tables, some don't (and some of the long-term residents have two, perhaps why others have none). 50 amp sites are in the back row, all else are 30 amps (and I was told that a reservation for a 50 amp site is meaningless because the 50 amp sites are handled on a first-come, first-served basis). Thus like me, you can arrive with a confirmed 50 amp reservation and be told there are none available.

This campground is, as the name says, part of the county fairgrounds. The website does not say, and i discovered on check-in, that my reservation dates were cut short because of a Country Music Fest. It was explained the park serves the fairgrounds, and reservations mean nothing if something pops up at the fairgrounds or the fairgrounds decides for any reason that it wants the spaces. So if you have a confirmed/reconfirmed reservation, it may or may not be honored or cut short. I doubt we'd return. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Basic gravel field owned by the county with just water, electric, and sewer hookups. No real competition; they know they have you. Overpriced for what it is, but this area is an RV park desert. Felt safe, and site was level. Access from 101 was OK, just pay attention. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

As everyone else is saying this is a gravel lot but level. Big rigs needing 50 amp service are on back row and easy to access. No grassy areas so pets have to walk on gravel. Convenient for our wine trip as next to 101. Quiet park at night. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Gravel parking lot with hookups. They want excessive information on the form including insurance company and policy number. We just did a overnight, so I didn't see everything. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

This is a basic gravel lot with elec, water & sewer hook-ups (30 & 50 amps). It's tucked way back in away from the roads & fairgrounds and is an okay place to stay for a few days (14 day limit) when you are in the area. There is actually a number of things to see & do here (when the weather is nicer!) and you can't beat the price. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

This park is a very large gravel area with small pretty trees. The park is very open though. The spaces are what normally is seen in any park and the wide roads made it easy to get around- even in our 40ft 5er. There were campground hosts at a kiosk that were friendly and showed us to our site. Being as we stayed "off- season", we had our pick of sites. We choice a front row site with no one next to us but it was a bit noisier due to the busy road but it was not a big problem. The bath house was older but clean with the showers kind of strange. You walk up a step where there are two showers side by side with a curtain on each one. Not very private by any means but then I never use the shower facilities. The laundry is very small- two washers and two dryers. I was able to snag one washer one day but if it was busy season- good luck. There are laundry facilities around to use however.
The price shown reflects one night using PA (which is the maximum nights) and our other three nights were $35.00 each night. This rate is to be expected in California even if it is a gravel open campground. I would stay again. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Nothing all that special except convenient and a great place to camp when needing to be in the Santa Rosa area. It is level, quiet, and close to the city. We camp here often in our 40 foot motorhome when visiting the area. It's close to a great park that has hiking trials. You can use Passport America on your first night. Which brings the price down to around $17. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Perfect location for attending nearby wedding. Easy access on gravel, level sites. Not many other choices in the area and we were pleasantly surprised by this venue. Would return again. No wifi or TV hookup. Ok reception using antenna. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Location is the plus here. Gavel lot, some shade trees, bathroom would be what you find in SP. Walking distance to downturn, good place for wine tours, town has Uber service. I would stay again. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Passport America is honored for one night, full rate after that. A gravel parking lot with full hookups, like most other fairgrounds RV parks. Surfaces are nice hard-packed gravel. Interior roads are large enough for the largest rigs to navigate with ease. It appears that only the last row of sites has 50 amp power. Not much road noise. There are trees between many of the sites, but the north/south orientation of the sites allowed our rooftop satellite dish to pick up all three satellites. The site was wide enough to park our toad next to the RV. Very pleasant camp hosts who actually fill out all the registration information for you. Proof of insurance is required.

There is a tiny, clean laundry--two washers and two driers. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.
