Our stay was during Forest River Owners Rally. We had full hook ups and the sites where we were had adequate room between each RV. Considering there were 800 RV's there at the time all of the amenities worked well including the wifi. The bathrooms were always clean. The grounds were always clean and the dumpsters were never overflowing. The biggest negative was you needed 20 to 25 feet of sewer hose to connect to the sewer. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground is in the middle of the Amish Country and there are lots of places to visit, tours and places to shop and eat. It is also the largest RV manufacturing area in the U.S. so you could get tours of several plants as well as the National RV Museum.

We were here again for the FROG Rally and all I can say is WOW!!!!!! The staff here switched from their yearly county fair to our needs for a 800 rig rally and did a fantastic job, between cleaning up all the trash to laying the temporary lines and setting up a hall to feed close to 1,700 people it was simply amazing. This was done in less then a week. All the grounds are well kept but keep in mind this is not a campground, all utility needs were good (some sites on the grounds require long sewer hoses), we will return. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Not sure if rate is correct - we stayed here as part of a large rally with FHU. Parking varies -- some areas are all gravel, some are all grass, and are mostly level. Picnic tables are only provided in certain areas. No fires allowed. We had no difficulty navigating the interior roads in our big rig (43 ft. fifth wheel & semi truck). Keep in mind this is a 4H park with an equine race track and stables - you may see, smell, and hear them. Meeting space was large, well-lit and well-ventilated with sizable kitchen and bathrooms. There is lots of room to ride bikes or walk the property on a mix of asphalt and dirt roads. Downside - the south border of the park property has a very active rain line - every 10-15 minutes, day and night. I would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for Forest River rally and two days prior to it. Our 40' fifth wheel was in one of the full hookup sites that is in the interior of the dirt, horse track. Gravel road to sites, lots of dust. Even if the RVs weren't crammed in for a rally, you'd still be very close to your neighbor; maybe 3-4 feet between yours and theirs slides. We used a few extra boards under our front jacks to help get level. Hookups worked fine and were located at the very rear corner of the site. Come prepared with extra water and sewer hose as your port may not be on the normal side. Water shared with four other rigs, pressure was still fine. The sewer port was very tall and no way to screw in an elbow so be prepared to get creative. Wifi was unusable where we were; often didn't come up in list of closeby networks (we don't have a booster). Multiple bars AT&T LTE. Site was only big enough for our fifth wheel; had to park truck in grass across the gravel road or down at the end of the row. For the pre-rally price, our site wasn't worth it in my opinion and was charged the same as the grassy sites with picnic tables, firepits, etc. The sites on the NW side that are setup more like a typical campground would have added value. If there were bathrooms or showers near the horse track, I never found them (but luckily didn't need to). The trains...wow...going past often. They sound like giant airplanes flying right overhead, but thankfully only occasionally blow their whistles. Other than that, it is very quiet. I never saw any security people around, but maybe they blended in with all of the rally people. Gates were never closed while we were here, but we never felt unsafe. Roads to fairgrounds take you through town, but are doable. Roads inside fairgrounds are tight, but didn't hear about any of the 800-some rigs hitting anything. Good location for a rally/event. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed at the 4H fairgrounds several times for rallies over the past few years; the main area is nice and flat, restrooms and showers readily available. We bring our bikes to get around to the different buildings, as it is a big area. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

The fairgrounds are right next to the railroad tracks, so if you need peace and quiet to sleep like I do, be sure to bring ear plugs. The fairgrounds is also well lit, so consider a sleep mask if you need it dark at night to sleep.

We stayed with about 230 other units for a Diesel Pusher session. We were near the horse paddock and could watch training for barrel races from the coach. The park is very clean and hookups worked well except a 'boil water' alert due to construction outside the park. Plenty of space to walk and other than the hourly trains it was very quiet and we would return for another rally. Some sites do have picnic tables but not where we were.

Nice RV park on the fairgrounds property. All sites are back-in with full hookups. In the NW section (400's) the sites are long, level, gravel with grass between and a picnic table. Modern and very clean bathrooms and showers are located in several places. This is good for a rally event or a short term stay to sightsee in the area. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed for over two weeks. The 2nd week was for a diesel maintenance session with a couple hundred other Class A coaches. This was our 3rd time at this campground. We were on the NW section which had full hookups. Gravel and grass sites, paved lanes. All back-ins. Picnic table on each site. Free wifi was ok depending on where you were located, no cable. Great water pressure. Sites are open to the sky. Close to grocery stores, restaurants and downtown Goshen. Monroe Street is one lane due to road construction but hopefully they'll be done with that by the county fair. We'll definitely be back next year. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for the 2017 Entegra Homecoming Rally. The nightly rate I posted is just to fill in the blank. We paid a flat fee for 3 nights that included all our meals and seminars. There were 138 coaches here. Our site was out by the horse stables and train tracks. These are VERY BUSY tracks! No fire pits or picnic tables. FHU. There are FHU sites with tables and pits at the Fairgrounds. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting the area or touring the RV industry factories. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

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.
