We stayed here for a Thor Motorhome rally with about 235 other rigs. The facility was full, but it was clear this would be a good place to stay when out on your own as well. Might want to avoid it during a rally. It's a large park, with hundreds of sites, ranging from beautiful manicured sites, to full hook up in a field.

I don't recall our site number so put 1. Roads are paved and plenty of room to maneuver. Close to other areas if you like day trips. We visited Notre Dame for an excellent day trip. Also, Goshen is a pretty neat town with a main street with a 60's era, lots of small businesses and stores. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

This is the type camping that you would expect at a fairground: just the basics. It is basically a large flat gravel parking lot with grass between the parking spaces. Connections were fine. Water connections are shared with other sites. Depending upon location, some of the spaces are extremely close together. The biggest detractor were dozens of trains that travel very nearby hourly day and night. I would suggest this campground only to people who are attending a rally or activity at the fairground. It is OK for an overnighter. Be sure and ask about the activities scheduled during the days you plan to stay at the fairground because this will greatly affect how crowded the camping spaces are. If you stay for 6 nights at the Fairground you get the 7th free. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We attended the Forest River Owner's Group (FROG) rally. The group maximizes all available spots with 800 RVs in attendance. This year we were located in the grove which is directly behind the permanent campsites. There is frequent noise from the very active train tracks adjacent to the property. The bathrooms and grounds are kept well maintained. Great location for a rally! Downtown Goshen is very nice with interesting shops. Tough to rate campsites since we were in a temporary location. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This stay was for a manufacturers rally of approximately 800 RVs, and many sites were very close together and many of my observations would probably not apply to the regular park sites. Pricing would apply however.

From a distance, the normal RV sites appeared to be regular size and with FHUs.

Park is centrally located in Amish country with easy access to many attractions.

Price was for water and electric for a four-night stay prior to a manufacturer's rally.

Full Hookup would have added $7.50 per night extra to the price. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

More to do in the area than you can do unless you have at least a week. RV factory tours and the RV Hall of Fame, automobile museums, flea markets, Amish crafts and food. We plan to return when we have more time.

Stayed here again for the annual FROG rally. About 800 units this year. Electric and water service very strong for the number of units on the systems. Rained several times during the week but ponding was at a minimum. Elkhart county and city of Goshen operate this campgrounds/fairgrounds like a well oiled machine. Office staff very pleasant and helpful. If you are in this area, whether visiting or business with the rig factories you can't go wrong staying here. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here again this year for the FROG Rally and as always the grounds are immaculate. Seeing they just got thru with their fair: it was impressive to see how clean the grounds were, and how fast the fair ground crew were able to set up all the things needed for a rally of close to 800 rigs.

Yes there are trains, but all summer almost every where we stayed we heard trains. Maybe not as close as here, but we got used to the noise.

FYI: Some sites might need extra lengths of sewer hose. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for the FROG rally (800 units this year). Enjoyed the campground and all of the people attending the rally. Lots to do in the area. We stayed in the infield so it was a bit crowded but they are all friends. Office staff was friendly and the fairgrounds was very clean and neat.

Everything about this park is lovely except the location. We were parked about 100 yards from a busy railroad. All day, and more importantly, all night, trains went by sounding their horns as they approached and as they departed. With windows closed, a/c on high, and earplugs, it woke me up about a dozen times. And we are here 3 more nights. Sigh. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were here for the Passport America rally, we were assigned a site in the campground, not in the dispersed camping through out the property. The sites were level gravel and easy to back into. All hook ups were at the rear of the parking pad. The grass was freshly mowed and well trimmed. Trains are a common occurrence here since the south edge of the property adjoins one of the busiest rail corridors in the country averaging one train every 12 minutes 24 hours a day. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Stayed again for a week for the Ramblin' Pushers maintenance rally. We stayed in the northwest campground. Had 50 amps, full hookups. Sites were back-ins, a little tight, very little shade, adjacent to Monroe Street so we got both the street noise and the trains. It rained a lot so roads and grass were muddy. Restrooms were clean. No laundry. No off leash dogpark. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here to attend the Ramblin Pushers Chapter 419 Maintenance Session rally and rate reflects rally rate. The main roads in the fairgrounds are paved and mostly gravel in the camp areas. Easy access to the fairgrounds is from the north side. There are 4 primary camping areas in the fairgrounds, a formal camp in the northwest corner of the fairgrounds, a large area in the south central area, an area in the middle of the race track and an area in the north east front part of the park. We were located in the northern end of the south central camp area with 50 amp, water, and sewer. There is a railroad track that runs diagonally along the south and west end of the fairgrounds, and a road long the north end of the fairgrounds. The road is the lesser of the two evils as there seemed to be several trains an hour day and night. If you are located along the south or west end of the fairgrounds be prepared to not only hear, but to feel the trains as they pass. As previously noted we had a lot of rain during the MS rally so lots of standing water and mud. Beyond the rally, there are many good restaurants, grocery, and other services available in the area. The fairgrounds are available for camping at anytime including during rally's and other events provided there is space. Suggest you call ahead if not part of a rally just to be sure there will be space upon your arrival. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The 419 MS offered an evening meal off site at a local Amish farm. This was a fantastic experience and would almost consider attending a future MS rally just to do that again.

We camped in the Northwest Camping area - all 30/50a elec, water and sewer. All utilities at rear of site. Sites are gravel and grass. Great free wifi. Most sites are open, but some have limited shade. Nearby active railroad. Close to RV service centers and manufacturers and Amish culture. Staff is very helpful - extensive local info with maps provided at check-in. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Here one week for international rally and stayed over 3 more days. Main rv camping spots very nice and utilities placed and worked correctly. Did not use showers or toilets. About 200 or so sights with fhu's and when rally's are held can hold over 700 with 30 amp service and water too. Pump out service is provided by rally host. Nice clean cg and friendly folks in fair office and city of Goshen. 2nd time here and we will return. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a fairgrounds and we attended a rally for Forest River Owners Group (FROG) there. The cost reflects 4 dinners and 6 breakfast plus an excursion for two people.

We where in the center of the infield around the race track had water and 30 amp service plus one free pump out. the park is large and can accommodate in excess of 700+ campers. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
