We were coming into the area for some RV Repairs and chose the fairgrounds due to their great location and also because they just wrote our name down when we called for reservations and asked if we would call if we needed to cancel. How nice is that. This is a large fairground and they have camping areas scattered all around. We chose their 50 amp full hook up area, which happened to be right next to a couple horse corrals. We had live entertainment each day. All the sites are large and easy to back in or pull thru. The staff was friendly and they provided a great packet of information that helped point us to a few fun adventures while we were in the area. $33 for full hookup 50 amp and $25 for 30 amp and water. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Brings bikes and take the pumpkin vine trail from the fairgounds into Goshen. Stop by the Goshen Brewing Co and if you time it for the first Friday of any of the summer months, downtown Goshen fills with music, events and great food.

Our stay in this park was for a rally being held on the grounds. Some of the nicest people that we have meet. All hook ups worked great and where located toward the back of site. Sites were a little close but were laid out very well. Great location the only negative was the trains which were close to campground. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a Tiffin rally. We were far from the railroad tracks so had little noise. Showers were spotless as we're toilets. Our site, #1, backed up to the race track so we were treated to horses exercising on the track. Fun to watch! Good OTA reception, easy to navigate and well kept grounds. Felt safe and area was well lit. Parking is on grass so if there is rain there is a chance of water ponding. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were here to attend the Tiffin Allegro Club Rally. Our site was a back-in on a grass field with temporary 30 amp and water connections. We had good Verizon cell and internet reception and good DishTV satellite reception. We lost electric power several times due to a bad 200 amp breaker that provided power to 16 coaches. The train tracks were close by and the trains ran constantly day and night. We enjoyed the rally, but the campsite was a bad experience. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

We were here for a rally. Sites are very narrow when all full. Our door almost opened into our neighbor's slide. For a rally it was OK, but we would not otherwise like being so packed in. Access was OK. GPS could not find the entrance. Trains all day and night. Nice grounds and facilities for a rally. Wifi weak in our location but good near buildings. This place would be OK if there is not an event going on and not full. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice county/4H fairgrounds with electric only to full hookup sites. Parking is on grass so it can be a challenge if there is rain. Has a very busy train track right next to one side of the campground and during our rally there were rigs parked there so they had to have extreme noise. Fortunately, if there is no rally going on there are spaces far away from the tracks. Fairgrounds is conveniently located for seeing the area. All the surrounding communities are within easy driving distance. Over the air TV is acceptable as is Verizon service. Missing are pool, spa, picnic table, fire ring, pet run. Other than the trains, it is quiet at night. Might be hard to obtain a space during fair time. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

The rv sites are located throuhout the fairgrounds, most are level and on grass. A great place to stay if you are visting Elkhart County. There is always lots of activity in the fairgrounds, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Really hard to find a campground open in winter with hookups and easily accessible. We are so happy we found this! Bought a new trailer and used this campground to get all tested and set up, excellent find! Grounds are huge, convenient to stores like Walmart and Menards for errands, close to food and restaurants, couldn't ask for better. Easy to find on our GPS, staff is friendly, bathrooms are clean!

This is a county 4-H that is huge and has a lot of camping sites. There are strict rules about no hay bales or other items around the outside of rigs. The rules emphasize that it is a short term stay campground only. However, nothing is enforced. There were a few trashy trailers with hay bales and junk and looked as though they were "living" there. However, most of the sites were fine. There are no amenities except the full hook ups which were great. We were in the area for warranty work on our 5th wheel so it worked out great! We checked in and paid and then were told to pick any spot we wanted. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground was not easy to locate using our GPS. It is outside of town, which is common for Fair Grounds. Unfortunately is 20-30 minutes from the Interstate. As other reviews mentioned, there are a lot of trains working 24/7 and although you can tune them out, can be heard. Staff was very nice and friendly. We had our choice of sites. Perhaps a dozen other campers. Water and sewer is available throughout the year even though we opted for just electric. The Wifi is good and stable to use. The showers and restrooms are nice and clean. The sites are back in, but you can pull through open sites if you are careful. The website states Cable TV, but is meant to sat TV channels easily available with antenna. We were able to get all major networks and several other channels with good signal and clear picture. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

There are numerous camping sites at the fairgrounds. Our first site that bordered CR 34 was not level, front wheels off ground, and small sites. RV parked almost door to door. We changed to another camping area on the north side of the fairgrounds. Not a good idea either. Just on the other side of the trees bordering the fairgrounds are three heavily used rail road tracks. I lost count after 40 trains passed next to use the first night. Very loud. So much for the negative... Fairgrounds have very good free WiFi throughout the fairgrounds. We were there when nothing was going on so camping was very empty. The campground WiFi performance: Ping 12ms, 4.35Mbps download and 4.80Mbps upload. Water pressure 60 psi. 50 amp service: no load leg 1 - 123v, leg 2 - 122v. Under load 119v and 118v. Sites are level and most roads leading to the camping areas are paved. Overall rating of 5 because of the amount of trains passing at night and how loud the trains were. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

If your are into RVs, there are numerous RV manufactures in the area. Most offer factory tours. If you are interested in finding out information on the Amish then a trip to the Menno-Hof information center is well worth it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
