We were able to be here for the big eclipse. The spaces are both short and very close together. It is very difficult to park your tow vehicle. In our space the water was on one side and the electrical pedestal was on the other. The utilities were adequate. The parking surface is just plain dirt. The manager here was very helpful. The big advantage of parking here is cost and often availability. Most of the commercial parks in the area could cost twice as much. Since this is the county fairgrounds, there are often things happening in the fair facilities. Sometimes, rodeo, barrel racing, Saturday farmers market, bicycle trail, ponds with ospreys etc and etc. Great shopping and restaurants are nearby. We would stay here again. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because we were visiting our children in Boulder and rv parks in this area are few and far between. This park is certainly not well kept. There is no resident manager. The grounds are full of " goat heads" (weeds with very sharp stickers), in fact they carpet many of the rv sites. Some of the weeds in the flower beds are shoulder high. The driveways and roads are dirt and full of potholes. The restrooms are cleaned daily by inmates from the local jail and most of the hooks to hang your clothing and towels have fallen off the walls and were not replaced. Walking your pet can be a challenge with all the stickers but you also have to watch out for the "leavings" from irresponsible pet owners who do not clean up after their pets. The most grounds maintenance we saw was when they were watering some of the trees and bushes from a tank on the back of a pickup. Although there have been very nice flower beds at one time the weeds have been allowed to crowd them out. As others have noted the spaces are very crowded. We had to dodge low hanging branches and there were pull through sites we couldn't pull into because the trees are not trimmed. There are plenty of activities at the fairgrounds, especially on weekends and shopping is good and convenient. For being is such a populated area it was fairly quiet. The sheriff and park rangers were regular visitors while we were here but there is no other park oversight. One day a homeless person asked a neighbor of ours for the bathroom code. She did not give it out. I would not stay here again if I could avoid it. The utilities did work well but there is no sewer hookups. The dump site is only open from 8 to 4 so if you want to leave early in the morning and dump on your way out you can't. The most positive thing I can say is that the price is cheap. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We looked at other parks in the Rocky Mountains but this was the only one priced to afford. It is an excellent location. Doesn't feel like you are in the middle of the town. Grocery stores and shopping very nearby but did not hear any noise from traffic. They have electric and water at each site with a dump at the front of park that was easily accessible. We camped in the pull -through area for big rigs. Very happy with the park. We stayed two weeks. You can pay for dry camping or electric only or water and electric. Would highly recommend this park.

We liked this campground in spite of the tight sites and lack of space to park your tow vehicle. It worried me that if a camper caught fire, the fire department would not be able to drive into the park because of all the vehicles parked in the narrow streets .Check-in is easy by using the machine if the office is closed. The streets and sites are dirt although they must have been gravel at one time. Rv sites are few in the area so this is a welcome choice for someone looking for a space for a short stay. People in large RVs, especially towing a trailer should beware. The end sites seem to have the only picnic table. The sites on the South side are the longest but there are only 8 of them. The next 4 rows are narrow and the next couple are a bit wides. All of these are pull through. The rest are back-in of various lengths. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our second stay. See our first DSVT review. We were looking for a convenient place to stay in the general area while visiting friends in April. There were only a few other RVs. Our stay was quiet. Although this park is more functional than aesthetic, we came back for the convenient location, easy access and friendly staff. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice little park in the middle of longmont, CO. Nothing fancy about it, gravel roads and sites that are little tight. Bathhouse with separate showers. Lots of places and things to do with a mile or two. We were able to ride our bikes to grocery stores, restaurants, and the old main street area. About a 15 minute drive to Boulder. No wifi or cable. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Simple park in nice area, convenient to shopping, movies, and Saturday farmers market in season. Easy spots on a first come first serve basis with 14 day stay limit. Easy into Boulder, Lafayette, etc. W&E worked great. Dump station pretty easy to get into. No sewer sites but nicely kept bathhouse with individually lock shower stalls and clean sink/toilet ares. Very quiet after dark. Humane shelter close by but no noise noted. Park needs some spiffing up so you don't feel like you are camping in an empty lot. Overall, a good place to stay.

We will stay here again. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We were looking for a campground that would be convenient for visiting friends in the Longmont/Boulder area. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weekend in September.

All sites have electric, some have water. There's a dump station near the entrance. There's no wifi. ATT and Verizon coverage were ok. The sites are all arrayed in a flat gravel parking lot and are quite narrow. Sites on the ends of the rows feel larger as they abut small islands to direct traffic which also hold a picnic table. There are few trees, mostly around the perimeter. Despite the small sites and nearly full campground, we enjoyed several quiet nights. All sites are first come first serve, there are no reservations. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The location of this campground was great. It's 5 minutes to downtown Longmont, 20 minutes to Boulder and less than an hour to Denver. It's surrounded by malls, so stocking up on supplies and eating out were short walks away.

The sites in this park are pretty close together. We are able to get our slides out but you are very close to your neighbor. It can be very muddy when it rains. This campground is in town so your are close to groceries and several big box stores. Boulder is a short drive and Denver is about half an hour away. The location is the best feature. We found this park to be fairly quiet. We were one of the lucky sites that had a picnic table. Most don't. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is an older park with dirt roads and sites. Most of the campground is too tight for Big Rigs (tight turns and low hanging tree limbs) but there are 8 sites behind the office which can accommodate rigs over 40 feet. No WiFi, cable or sewer. There is a dump station which is easy to access. Since this is a county fairground there are lots of horse shows and events on weekends. Very dusty in the summer. The campground used to take reservations but it is now on a first-come, first-serve system. This will not be a problem if you arrive mid week but weekends seem pretty full. Good location for touring the Boulder area. We will stay here again. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We have used this campground many times in the past due to family in Longmont. Positives: Location is right behind the County Fairgrounds, so convenient for events (if you don't mind horses with occasional noise and odor) and the Sat. AM farmer's market. Short drive to shopping, including a Super Target. Nice walking trails around ponds with osprey nesting areas. Negatives: Sadly, our most recent visit was miserable. There are no sewer hookups (dump station) and the bathhouse, consisting of men's and women's bathrooms with toilets/sinks and a row of separate shower rooms, is heavily used and filthy. The bath house is cleaned by county jail inmates, and cleaned poorly. The lights kept going on and off for an inexplicable reason, making the bath house impossible to use at night. Apparently the county very honorably welcomed refugees from last year's horrible floods to camp there, but there still seems to be some people living there semi-permanently with rigs in disrepair. The grounds get muddy in rain since roads and sites are all gravel. The grounds are weed-infested. As a result, the whole campground now has a very seedy appearance despite a nice flower bed framing the front. There is a clerk manning an office, but if you arrive after hours you have to go over to the county maintenance yard nearby to get the bath house code. There is a cash machine to pay (need exact change or credit card) regardless if the clerk is there. $20 reflects electric only, $25 for electric & water. We will probably stay again, however, since St. Vrain State Park, the other option in town, is more expensive and further out of town. We'll just have to be self-contained and hope for no rain. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here 5 nights. The staff was extremely friendly. The showers were clean and the sites, although close, we're adequate. The entire campground was dirt so either dusty or muddy, depending on weather. Our RV is 38' long. The campground has great access to walk/bike trails, shopping, and restaurants. We would camp here again. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Well where do I start. We had reservations to stay in this campground and while we were staying at the state park close by we decided to drive by and check it out. We are so glad we did because there is no way we could stay there. The sites are really too close because if you are lucky to get your slide out you won't have RV and those that did were barley big enough. The grass between sites was dead or over grown, a adult put bull was laying in the gutter and we wondered if it was dead, this place just did not look like a safe environment. Don't let the picture on the web page fool you as it is very misleading. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is NOT a destination. It part of the fairgrounds and is a dirt lot with water/electric sites that are quite narrow. We don't have any slides and we found it cramped. Site was dirt and sloped a bit so we had to use the rarely used leveling blocks. When we got here there were some sketchy types hanging out smoking and drinking but they left the next day. Water/electric worked well. Nothing for kids to do but run around dodging traffic. We stayed here 3 nights as nothing else was available. This park is okay for adults with small rigs who need an overnight stop. We might stay here again if the need ever arises. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice county-run park. Sites are dirt but level with a bit of grass between them. Water and electricity only. Water and electicity is $25, water OR electric only is $20, no hookups $15. Self pay station if the office is closed takes Visa, MC, or cash. Might be a bit noisy if there are events going on but on this Friday night it was peaceful.
